    Looks fake to me... I would have expected to see flame/smoke/fumes or at least some distortion of the air due to the amount of heat from them short exhausts when they rev it... Also at 2min 30sec into the vid he's leaning right over the exhaust which is blowing his beard up... surely there is no way he'd be able to do that as the heat would be too intense...

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRi Nav

    Engine : CDTI158

    Year : 2012

    Default

    start off at 1800hp, used in trucks buses etc.
    didn't say the torque which is a shame.
    sounded almost like a petrol, except it didn't rev high.
    no flames, unlike a top fuel dragster engine.

    pales in comparison to the Wartsila-Sulzer RTA96-C: -
    25,480 litres 108,920 hp at 102 rpm
    bit too big to go into a car though, unfortunately
