Stuffed: Revived 1967 Victor FD Puts Out 3000 Horsepower Courtesy of Vauxhall

Automobile Staff

Automakers can capitalize on their historic past by giving new life to old production models and concept cars. For a local festival in the United Kingdom, Vauxhall has breathed new energy into an already powerful muscle car of the 1960s, and pumped 3000 horsepower from its V-8.

You read that right. For the VXR Power Festival, Vauxhall has revived a historic model nameplate and given it awesome power. To announce its partnership with drag racing team Red Victor, Vauxhall tuned the 8.8-liter V-8 in a 1967 Victor FD to produce 3000 horsepower. Though still in development stages, the FD is rumored to complete the quarter-mile in just 6.5 seconds and achieve a top speed of 240 mph.

The Victor FD, which Vauxhall claims is street-legal, will make an appearance at the Festival during the last weekend of August. If the rejuvenated FD is any indication, this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship between Vaxuhall and Red Victor.
