They Call it Mental Breakdown and it is a 1700hp VW Bus Dragster!

The name of this ride is basically perfect, because you would have to have a Mental Breakdown to stuff a 1,700 HP blown engine into a VW Bus, butt that’s exactly what you’re looking at, and it’s just as insane as you would expect.

The rowdy supercharged engine sounds like it came right out of the pro mod ranks and was dropped directly into the back of this Volkswagen Van, which appears to have been stretched a few yards and had a massive top fuel style wing added to keep the huge slicks stuck when all of that power is applied on the big end. The van is likely pretty heavy and has the aerodynamics of a brick, but still manages to rip off a solid elapsed time of 7.60 at over 180 MPH.

Go ahead and hit that play button and watch this V-Dub laying it down on the famed Santa Pod quarter mile!
