    Default 1150HP Ford RS200 to climb Pikes Peak


    It took 13 years for Rod Millen's 1994 Pikes Peak run to be toppled by Nobuhiro Tajima in 2007. And when Tajima set a new record of 10:01.408 in the Suzuki XL7 Hill Climb Special, there were doubts that time could ever be eclipsed. This weekend, those doubts could be put to rest by Mach 2 Racing and its specially-prepared Ford RS200. Partnering with Avon Tires, the Essex-based motorsports firm has created the ultimate rally-bred Ford, packing a new turbo that boosts output to 950 hp, and then, for good measure, includes a 70-liter nitrous oxide tank to deliver another 200 hp for a total of 1,150 hp. Manning the helm is ex-British Rallycross Champion, Mark Rennison, who maintains that the Pikes Peak-prepped RS200 could break the ten-minute mark over the 12-mile, 156-turn course. "If everything on the day goes right and the weather conditions are good beating the 10-minute barrier shouldn't be a problem," Rennison says in the release (after the jump), "But strange things happen at Pikes Peak, it's a unique event." To say the least. Expect the RS200's performance and the rest of the competitor's to be reported on over the weekend.

    One of the most awesome cars ever built... any true enthusiast has this car in their top 10.

    I wonder what turbo they use.. how can you have an engine that small, with that much power, for hill climb ... it must be some magical turbo.

    I cannot wait to see this run, the RS200 is one of my favorite cars of all time and I hope it breaks the 10:00 barrier.

    I would guess the 200 shot of NOS is for spooling :P

    Damn that would be scary.
    ...foolish would be buying a car that is no fun to drive.

    The run is supposed to be today... I'm kinda excited and hoping it'll break it.
