AMS Black Evo VIII From Florida Throwback

Anybody remember back in 2004/2005 when a particular AMS built black Evo 8 from Florida was terrorizing the streets and destroying anything in its path? Chris would line up against anything, Mustangs, Corvettes, Vipers etc. and blow their doors off, sometimes with 4 people in the car! The AMS staff hadn’t watched these videos in quite some time, but as soon as we did a lot of memories came flooding in. A fun fact: when these videos were made, YouTube did not exist!

Halloween, the perfect time for a video about the World’s Fastest Hearse. AMS “Madness” sets a new top speed record of over 160mph at the Chicago WannaGoFast 1/2 mile.

The AMS Hearse Madness is not your typical entry in any competition, let alone a standing half mile race. Madness took everyone by surprise when it pulled into the staging lanes, and then really blew their mind when it clicked off a 161.4mph half mile. This AMS built turbocharged dead sled is pumping out over 900HP on 20psi of boost through a stock GM LS V-8 6.0L longblock. The data logger attached to Madness during the record run showed an impressive 2.9 second 0-60 and 6.49 second 60-130mph time on the Bult Field airport runway in Monee IL.

Stay tuned for the next video coming soon of this 5000+lb behemoth featuring a 9 second quarter mile blast!
