This Oldsmobile Has 5,000 HP And Is Somehow Still Street Legal


In a conversation about muscle cars, the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme from the 70s and 80s will always be included. Especially if it went through the hands of Hurst Performance. The 1984 Hurst/Olds is one of the best examples, and that’s exactly what we have here, brought to you by YouTube Hoonigan.

But if the old one above doesn’t look familiar to you, that’s fine because it’s a heavily modified example called the Witch. How modified, you ask? Well, it can now produce over 5,000 horsepower on the right fuel – way more than an old Hurst muscle car could produce. It now lays claim to America’s fastest streetcar title.

We mentioned “good fuel” because that amount of power is achievable when the Sorceress is fueled with methanol. Apparently, this car can even digest 88 octane gasoline, but of course the performance will not be the same.

This Oldsmobile is powered by a V8, with a pair of 110mm turbochargers and 2.5-inch primaries. The engine compartment looks crazy, with polished stainless steel hardware to look nickel-plated. Even the way the clamshell hood opens electronically looks like a work of art.

If you haven’t noticed, much of Sorceress’ exterior is carbon fiber, so it’s definitely lightweight. This allows the car to sprint up to 260 miles per hour (418 kilometers per hour) in a quarter mile, finishing in around six seconds. It’s even faster than a Bugatti.

A lot has changed since this 1984 Hurst was bought new by the owner, but one thing remains: it’s still its daily driver. Yes, despite this ridiculous amount of power it has, it is street legal. How cool is that?
