The world’s fastest hearse is being upgraded for 2015. A turbocharged 6.0L V8 Chevy Caprice named ‘Madness’, which still has its original stereo and coffin-carrying capabilities, it’s capable of 0-100km/h in just 2.26 seconds, with a top speed of 220kph.
Holding the world record for the quarter mile for a hearse since 2013 (9.94 seconds), this year sees the madness (pun intended) become even greater, with a new forged engine and a bigger turbo, resulting in a somewhat staggering 1,300hp. That’s on par with the one of the fastest road legal production cars, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Supersport, which boasts 1,200bhp and goes from 0-100kph in 2.5 seconds.
Wherever they’re going, they’ll get there fast.
