Most guys at the drag strip want to be in or near the ten second range. Jason Lansdown decided the tens weren’t for him. He went ahead and undercut that number by six seconds. That’s correct, this is a four-second 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air.
The Bel Air sounds like a fighter jet is ready for takeoff even while it’s standing still, thanks to the massive blower accompanying the 383 cubic-inch engine. Besides the insane powerplant, the build is clean, and we love how the ’57 body just sits on top of the skinny front tires, and massive rubber in the rear.
As Lansdown makes his pulls down the strip at Ozark Raceway in Missouri, the car looks almost impossible to control as it swerves and skids down the track. He keeps it under control though, and clock in at 4.28. Four point two eight. At nearly 160 mph. Yikes. Wow. We’re running out of exclamations to type.
This car is blowing our minds, and we think it will blow yours to absolute smithereens. Check out the beast as it makes blasts down the quarter-mile in the video below.
