Meet Shockwave, a 36,000hp truck that holds the Guinness World Record as the fastest truck on the planet.

Powered by three enormous jet engines, Shockwave has a top speed of 376mph and will hit 300mph in just 11 seconds. During a one mile drag race, Shockwave nails through 400 gallons of jet fuel. To keep the truck on the ground, the three jets – arranged in pyramid formation – are tilted upwards at three degrees.

But enough of the details. Here it is in action!
