Many of our readers may recall reigning ADRL Extreme 10.5 champion Dan Millen recording footage several years ago during the cold Michigan winter, driving his seven-second, 200 MPH Super Street/Outlaw 10.5 car to the Burger King drive -thru for lunch. such an exploit might be hard to top, but it would take an individual that’s seriously over the top. And that man is Englishman Andy Frost.
Frost, who we’ve featured here on the digital pages of DRAGZINE on numerous occasions, debuted his incredible new creation, know as Red Victor 3, this season in FIA competition. The newest of Red Victor machines recreates a 1972 Vauxhall VX4/90 and is a Pro Modified car in virtually every sense of the word, with a full-tube chassis, fiberglass body, and a monstrous 540 cubic inch, twin turbocharged, methanol-burning powerplant under the hood.
But just because this is a bonafide race car, Frost, ever the comedian, sees no reason to deprive the Red Victor 3 a chance to stretch its legs on the roadways. And so the car maintains all the attributes required by law for a Sunday drive, including the headlights, tail lights turn signals, and license and registration, of course. And sans the wheelie bars and slicks – replaced with a pair of massive DOT treaded meats, Frost hits the roads of Wellingborough, England for a little cruise with the cameras rolling.
This is a car that’s been 7.23 at 199 MPH and is capable of running well into the mid-six second zone, driving amongst vehicles that would be lucky to turn the quarter mile in less than 20 seconds. And with a low-slung look and sponsor decals adorning the body, Frost stands out like a sore thumb on the roadway. But hey, it’s legal, and it’s badass.
