Chevy Pickup Runs 8.07 Quarter-Mile, Sets New Record

Video

This is the fastest Chevy pickup…in the world.

We didn’t know it existed, but the 99+ Chevy Pickup World Record was recently set by Rigo Trevino’s 1,700-hp Silverado at the October Truck Madness. The 427 cu.in (7.0-liter ) beast was fitted with Precision 114mm turbos and Trevino was out to break his own record of 8.40 seconds. After a couple of runs, the mammoth Silverado managed to reach the quarter mile in 8.07 at almost 180 mph, setting a new world record.

It then took on a 1,300-hp Blazer before blowing a head gasket.
