JCB Backhoe GT Has A Supercharged V8

JCB Backhoe GT with supercharged big-block Chevy V8

Labeled the fastest backhoe in the world, JCB Construction’s Backhoe GT is powered by a 1,000 horsepower supercharged big-block Chevy V8. The vehicle is capable of reaching 120 mph but only needed 70 mph (116.8 kph) to break the record in Australia. To help reduce weight the loader and digger is made out of aluminium and it has a lighter steel chassis. This is the first time I have heard about this project but JCB has been building the GT in one form or another for 20 years.
