Heh, I wants one of them Tesla utes when they come out. The ultimate hoon machine. You may not be able to wake up the whole neighbourhood with a clean breathing V8 at full song though you will be able to blow out the whole neighbourhoods 240 volt power supply when yer plug it in fer a recharge...

Bloke here in town has a jigger a bit like Bruce's Dodge. An AR110 ute on Holden chassis with all the goodies and putting out over 650hp. But lets face it, all that hp but not enough torque to pull a semi. Them's different horse. As my old man would say, " you need horses with hairy fetlocks in a truck".
The latest Cummins ISX (their biggest standard offering) has 600hp and 2050ft/lb of torque
The GM Goliath Pick-up has 700hp and 675ft/lb of torque 6.2 litre petrol 6,300rpm red line
Just as a comparison my Nissan Navarra V6 (based on the Renault engine) is the most powerful of the Japanese mid-sized trucks has 200hp and 485ft/lb of torque with a chip which is double the Torque/HP of the big GMC pick-up.
You get the feeling they got the horsepower for the sales brochures by allowing the engine to run past its normal red line knowing full well that almost none of them will be using that horsepower for any length of time and most of them never.
They have the damn things up to 800hp! These are built by Hennessey and sold through GM dealers like Holden HSV and Mercedes AMG models. If you have a spare $375,000US might be interesting to order one. This is 6x6 but you can have the 800hp in a 4x4 if you want. Reckon the red line must by up around 7,000rpm.
