1000HP TOYOTA PRIUS

As SEMA finishes for another year, we get to see what other companies have been working on over the last year.

This Toyota Prius has had a 4.5L supercharged HEMI from Hellcat stuffed into it. You'd never think about doing a swap like this, cause Toyota Prius isn’t designed to be cool or fast but instead is designed to do nothing other than getting good fuel economy and maybe adding a little bit of comfort for the driver at hand. But that didn't stop the guys from American Racing Headers.

Yes, Donald also aproves of this Prius

Inside, the changes are a little more apparent. The custom-fabricated dash and long-throw stick shift are pretty obvious clues that things are not as they seem, and while backseat has been ditched to make room for the full cage, the rest of the interior is surprisingly well-appointed for a drag car. The dash is wrapped in leather, there's carpet on the floor, and the bucket seats look comfortable.

It's hard to believe this PriuSRT8 is completely road legal as well and the ARH team plans to daily drive the 1,000-horsepower Toyota Prius whenever they can.

I'd hate to be the be the cocky guy who tries to race it on the street. Only to be chopped by a Prius..
