Top Gear goes truck racing
Over 5.5 tonnes, more torque/ton than a Veyron SS and very very good fun. Ollie Marriage reports

This is a racing truck. It's one of the most amusing things Top Gear has ever driven. It has three times as much torque as a Bugatti Veyron and weighs the same as half an F1 grid. It's rather large. From a vantage point some nine feet above the ground you do get a nice view out, but you will see an accident coming, and given the momentum involved you'll probably see it coming from a long way off. Top Gear very nearly had an accident. It was... nerve-wracking.
