Leaving Hard! AWD G-Body LS-Equipped 1,000 Horsepower Olds Cutlass

This video from the boys at Hoonigan Daily Transmission/Donut Garage shows the hardest leaving street car I have ever witnessed. Brian King built his insane G-Body 1982 Oldsmobile Cutlass using an all-wheel-drive platform combining the front drivetrain from a 2007 Chevy Trailblazer SS into the front frame of an Oldsmobile Bravada. He Frankenstein welded it together merging it all to the stock rear drivetrain of the Cutlass and then began doing four-wheel burnouts. He drove his creation on the street, 1,600 miles from Nebraska to Los Angeles to film the video.

 

The power plant pushing all four tires for the Olds is a 427 LSX from Texas Speed & Performance with a ProCharger F1X supercharger using 22 pounds of boost. He slapped on some QA1 coil-overs, Brembo brakes and Weld wheels and the 1982 Olds was rolling again. The car is a sleeper from afar, but closer inspection shows TONS of beautiful carbon fiber work all laid by Brian himself. The hood and trunk are carbon fiber, the dashboard is carbon fiber, and everything under the hood is also carbon fiber. Oh, yeah, and when the car is running, anyone within a few blocks will know this car means business.

The Nebraska personalized license plate does give it away a bit with the words “AWD OLDS.” However, until you actually see it twist four Toyo tires into the asphalt and shoot off like an insane all-wheel-drive rocket, only then will you know everyone who tries will certainly lose a drag race to this badass street car.
