In the post Y2K world, Hyundai’s are rear wheel drive, and can be found shredding their Potenzas with 429 meat filled V8 horsepower. On Friday, anything is possible.

Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the last 10 years, you have likely heard of Rhys Millen. He does rally and off-road truck racing, drifting, and a variety of other car related endeavors. Recently he set his eyes on smashing the current “Unlimited Class” Pikes Peak Hill Climb world record, and intends to break the 10 minute barrier all together, which has never been done. His team built a goal-oriented race car called the PM580 that is running a production Hyundai V6 with about 750 horsepower shoehorned into it. From the looks of this video, and the history that Rhys and his father Rod have on this hill climb, I’d say he has a good chance of reaching his goals. To put it tenderly, this new car looks like a tire-ripping, time-bending, ungodly fast, 1-way ticket to victory.
