Redline? What’s That? Check Out Some Of The Most Wound-Out Cars Found On The Internet!

We often get excited when we hear cars with screaming, 9,000 RPM engines going for broke…the one that immediately comes to mind is “Bloky”, the 9,600 RPM capable, NASCAR-engined Valiant VG that can be found embarrassing blown cars on Australian skid pads. The noise it makes is absolutely biblical, crossing up the throttle patterns of a typical burnout car with the anger and soprano range of a NASCAR. It’s heaven. But that isn’t the upper end of the RPM range. If you think revving some clapped-out 318 to 5,000 RPM is something to behold, have we got a video for you. It’s impressive when a speedometer sends the needle past the gauge reading, but what about the tachometer? Surely, once you blow past the great big red area that means “doom, death, and expensive destruction”, the engine is going to go up in a loud bang and a puff of smoke, right? Nope. The dash in the lead photo is from a Mitsubishi Evo, and it’s roughly pointing at 12,000 RPM…or, as you can plainly see, at least 3,000 RPM past “there went the valves!” Give this video a listen!
