VIDEO> RMR/Hyundai Dawn of the PM580

The dawn of the PM580. Set a drift on torquey bliss… HOLY shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinsplints! Just take a look at Rhys Millen‘s new RedBull/RMR/Hyundai PM580 race car testing at El Toro Airfield in Irvine CA! This thing sounds and looks nuts!!! Built by Rhys Millen Racing and powered by a turbocharged Hyundai Lambda engine, the PM580 puts out 775 HORSEPOWER and 750 ft/lbs of torque… and only weighs 1900 lbs, giving it the ability to do 20-120mph in 5.9 seconds!

Don’t expect to see RMR’s new PM580 at the next Formula Drift event, however… this thing was built for the toughest hill climb of them all. Can anyone take a guess as to what that is?

Thanks to Stanley Tran for showing me the video!

    Pikes Peak is insane and the Millen family straight OWNS the hill. Can’t wait to see if the record falls to the Hyundai thingamajigee. No seriously, that’s a purpose built hill climber right there. Sick!
