Video: Driving a BMW-Powered, 600-Horsepower Russian Dump Truck

What would you do with a stripped BMW chassis equipped with an S63 V8, the engine found in the X5M, X6M and M5? If you live in Russia, the only option looks to be tuning that engine to 600 horsepower, slapping a massive dump truck body over the chassis, and then driving erratically through city traffic.

What a country.

By the way, this is even more entertaining without the subtitles.

Watching him do donuts in a turbo BMW dumptruck was the highlight of my day, thank you.

Looking through that guy's list of videos, this isn't the first hot rod truck he's done.  Interestingly, he also has some videos with US cars - a late model Mustang, a Jeep, a Cadillac SUV.

In reply to MrChaos :

Absolutely bonkers. That flimsy enclosure isn't going to help at all when it finally topples.

Anytime I drive cars with an engine that leaves me underwhelmed I'm going to describe them as having "some strange sucky vegetable feeling inside of them."

It's a miracle he hasn't wrecked that thing yet.  Insanity.  In a good way.
