SEMA 2013: the good, the bad, and the ugly
Yes, it's the best and worst tuned offerings direct from the legendary Vegas show. Ready the sick bag...

It might not look like a Range Rover Sport competitor, but it is. Sort of. Vesco Racing's Turbinator II is powered by a Lycoming T55 gas turbine, but it powers all four wheels rather than just being blown along by a rocket, which makes it the fastest wheel driven car in the world. And the fastest 4x4 by far.
With a rather generous 4,213bhp on tap, the 4,100lb dart is capable of hitting 470mph - or roughly four times your Rangie Sport's top whack - but the off-roader scores over the record holder in maneuverability. With a 36ft overall length and 21ft wheelbase, and no steering lock to speak of, it must be a proper headache to parallel park.
