Evade has been judged to within 1% of perfection at numerous shows, including 995 out of 1000 points at the 20th Annual Eckler’s Winter Nationals. Not a bad feather in the cap of used engines.
The Ford Mustang Boss 429 is one of the rarest of the hot cars on our list. In fact, it is one of the rarest muscle cars ever built. There were only 1358 built in 1969 and 1970. The Boss 429 was built for racing at a time when Ford was getting its ass handed to it in NACAR’s Sprint Cup Series by the 426 Hemi-powered Chrysler cars. At the time, NASCAR rules required that an engine used in the Sprint Cup Series had to be fitted to at least 500 cars sold to the general public; thus, the Mustang Boss 429 was born!
The 22R and 22RE used engines can be scavenged from just about any 1980s or 1990s Toyota light truck, or 4Runner. Good luck finding someone who wants to part with one though, because these used engines are gems and so are their cars.
Diamonds and movie star lifestyle aside, the Lyken HyperSport can set pavement ablaze. It is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.7L flat-six that produces 780 hp and 708 lb-ft of torque. The builder, W Motors, claims the Lyken HyperSport has a top speed of 245 mph. It will jump from 0 to 60 mph in a scant 2.8 seconds and will hit 125 mph in just 9.4 seconds.
