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!

That thing is a beast…PIKES PEAK
Wow that thing sounds crazy, man. It looks like a Le Mans prototype or something!
GREAT SCOTT! That thing wails like a BANSHEE!
I bet my stock Escort GT could beat it.
the video quality could be better, but i think the car looks CRAZY! great way to step up your game, millen! this must be a huge deal for hyundai too!
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!
Most insane dirt vehicle ever.
the eff? i want to see that thing from the outside, looks ridiculous!
i want to drive it!
