Insanely Tuned GMC S-10 Pickup Runs Quarter-Mile In Less Than 8 Seconds

This GMC pickup truck is faster than most muscle cars. Check out the video to see it in action.


This GMC Sonoma pickup truck has more power than a Dodge Demon and is able to run a quarter-mile drag race in under 8 seconds.

When the GMC Sonoma (also known as the Chevy S-10) was first born way back in the '80s, it arrived with a selection of inline 4-cylinder of V6 engines. About the best you could manage was a 4.3-L LB4 V6 with 165 hp and 235 lb-ft of torque.

By today's standards, the pickup was small and underpowered, but useful in the same way that small pickups are to transport small yet cumbersome cargo to a different locale.

However, as far back as the early '90s, GMC knew that people loved fast pickup trucks. A high-performance version of the Sonoma called the GMC Syclone turbocharged that V6 so that it made 280 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque--an insane number for a pickup truck from the era. It also lowered the pickup's suspension several inches for better on-road performance.

This truck we see here is not a Syclone. It's even better.

Instead of a piddly V6, this GMC pickup has a 5.3-L LS V8 under its custom hood. Attached is a 94 mm Procharger turbocharger for more power than anything else at the drag strip. Just how much is a mystery--sadly, the driver dodges the question when asked outright. However, we can safely guess that it's well over 1,000 hp, given how fast this pickup can move.

Other mods include an aluminum block, a jury-rigged fuse system in the passenger seat, and a tailgate that has been welded shut to support a massive rear wing and a parachute.

In the first race, the GMC absolutely demolishes a C7-gen Corvette, then takes on a modified Nissan GT-R and crushes that car too. Then an older Camaro bites the dust before the pickup finally meets a modified Foxbody Mustang in the finals.
