  • 1000hp on 23psi of boost
  • Quarter mile in just 9.94sec at 137.36mph
  • Achieved via a stock 6.0L LQ4 engine

Now we couldn't pass up an opportunity to share a little Halloween spirit with you. What you will see in this video is all treats and no tricks. We don't normally write about non-European cars, but we couldn't pass this one up. Behold: The World's Fastest Hearse. Yes, you read that right.

It's not just a little fast, it's 0-60mph in 2.26sec fast. Just for comparisons sake, that's almost a second faster than the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series! This Hearse also has plenty of boost to boast with 1000hp on 23psi. To compare another European supercar, that's over 200 more horsepower than the all-new 2014 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster.
