Rhys Millen's 750 HP V6 is bred to break Pike's Peak
Rhys Millen will attempt to beat the current "Unlimited Class" World Record
of 10:01.408 & the 10-minute barrier at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. Last
June, Rhys took a Hyundai Genesis coupe to a class record in the two-wheel
drive Time Attack class with a 12:09.397. This year, Millen wants to take
the overall record back from Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima, whose held the
record since 2007, and bested Rod Millen's thirteen year old course record.
Millen is aiming to get the first ever sub-10 minute time at Pikes Peak
and he and his team have built a new car dubbed the Genesis PM580, a 1,850
pound, 750 horse power V6 beast is designed specifically to conquer the 156
turns to the top and return the world record to the Millen name.
