The 1970s and 1980s Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme will always be mentioned when talking about muscle vehicles. Especially if it passed via Hurst Performance’s hands. The Hurst/Olds from 1984 is one of the best out there, and that’s precisely what we’ve got here, thanks to YouTube’s Hoonigan.
But if the Olds you see above doesn’t appear familiar, it’s because it’s a substantially modified example known as the Sorceress. So, how much has been changed? With the correct gasoline, it can now create over 5,000 horsepower, which is far more than an old Hurst muscle car could. It is presently the quickest streetcar in the United States.
We stated “appropriate fuel” because the Sorceress can achieve that level of power when fed methanol. This automobile appears to be capable of digesting 88 octane fuel, albeit the power will not be the same.
A V8 engine with two 110mm turbochargers and 2.5-inch primaries powers this Oldsmobile. With stainless steel hardware polished to seem nickel-plated, the engine bay looks wild. Even the way the clamshell hood opens electrically is a work of art.
If you haven’t noticed, Sorceress’ exterior is largely constructed of carbon fibre, making it very light. This enables the automobile to sprint up to 260 mph (418 km/h) in a quarter-mile, completing the course in roughly six seconds. That is faster than a Bugatti.
A lot has happened since the owner acquired this 1984 Hurst fresh new, but one thing hasn’t changed: it’s still his everyday driving. Yes, despite its absurdly high horsepower, it’s allowed to drive on the street. Isn’t it amazing?
