Huge Detroit Diesel Hot Rod Update 2

Twin-turbo V16 Detroit Diesel 16V-72 Hot Rod

I just came across an update from Arjan Kolkman on his Detroit Diesel Hot Rod. When we last saw the project it was in black primer and still needed work on the interior and the Allison 750 automatic transmission. The newest video shows the massive 18.6 L (1136 ci) 16 cylinder Detroit Diesel 16V-71 has been painted along with the frame and front body panels. There is still no estimate on power output with the modern twin-turbos but the factory turbocharged version produced 724 horsepower at 2,100 rpm and 1,936 lb-ft of torque at 1,400 rpm.
