Jalopnik: 520 HP Mitsubishi Colt Drops Transmission Onto Highway... Literally [LOLCars]

Recommended Posts

We didn't think a Mitsubishi Colt was capable of 520 HP, however, during an acceleration run in this kid's Colt, a nasty clunk led to the clutch rolling past. The transmission literally fell out.

Making 520HP at the wheels on a dyno is no joke for a turbocharged four-cylinder, especially from a car that never got much respect during its life, but this Colt manages it at a crushing 44 PSI of boost. That built engine wasn't hooked up to a particularly fortified transmission though, so this impressive failure was pretty much inevitable. Very nicely done sirs. (Hat tip to Sean!)

Five-hundred and twenty horsepower? Yeah, sure it generates that much power ... going down a side of a mountain, pushed by the winds of a F3 tornado.

id believe it is fast (needs a dyno slip for claims) that thing was pulling hard. prolly would have done a lot better had he shifted instead of sitting redlined for 2-3 secs.

but

A- everything goes at the weakest link

B- that dude sounded like bevis and butthead when the trans let go, he also laughs like a total tard.
