1000HP Ford GT ECTA Land Speed Record Attempt!

Check out our exclusive Image Gallery here!


AmericanMuscle (www.americanmuscle.com) is helping to sponsor an attempt at the ECTA Land Speed Record for a Production Supercharged vehicle with a Stock Bottom End which is currently at 186.853MPH from a standing mile. Attempting this feat will be the car’s 73 year old owner Robert Self. The attempt will be made April 5-6th, 2008 at the East Coast Timing Association (ECTA) in Maxton, North Carolina. On the ECTA’s 1mile x 30ft abandoned runway track, Robert is looking to hit a cool 200-210MPH in his Ford GT and have room to stop.

A fully custom roll cage, Halon fire extinguishing system, and drag chute have been installed by S&W Racecars. All performance enhancements and custom SCT dynamometer tuning have been performed by Eric Swarr & his team at Swarr Auto Performance Center in Collegeville, Pennsylvania (www.swarrauto.com). In addition to the $15,000 Whipple Industries Supercharger upgrade, Robert has an additional $30,000 over the car’s $170,000 base price invested in performance and safety upgrades. AmericanMuscle.com will be setting Robert up with the proper tire setup for running speeds in excess of 200MPH in a 1000+ horsepower car, and also helping to promote the event.
