Spectre SpeedLiner Land Speed Record Run #1 - 328 MPH!
Spectre Performance took the brand new SpeedLiner racecar to Bonneville,
Utah, October 9 2009 to compete in the SCTA World Finals. The car is
powered by a 529ci (8.8L) twin turbocharged Cadillac engine drawing air through
off-the-shelf Spectre hpR air filters. Just two weeks ago the car was still
in pieces, but on its very first shakedown run veteran land speed racer
Kenny Hoover drove the car 287mph. This is the second run of the weekend,
328mph (a new high for gasoline powered streamliners in the AA/BGS class).
The car was then put in impound for inspection and the next day (October
11) it backed the run up for a new world record - 330.56 mph with a 340 mph
exit speed. The Spectre SpeedLiner is now the world's fastest Cadillac.
