We loved seeing this monster so much that we had to bring it back for another look.If there’s one vehicle that shook the Monterey Car Week in California to its core -literally- it would have to be this 1,600-horsepower beast.
The Packard Royal, as the mega-car is called, is 30-feet long and was built around a gigantic engine that came out of a World War II-era PT boat, says its creator, Rodney Rucker of Winslow, Ariz. Firing it up in a parking lot at a hotel here, the engine roared and fire belched from the pipes.
With the 30-foot size of a truck, this polished aluminum-clad custom Packard Royal V-12 Streamliner Roadster is a supercharged marvel that consistently stops people in their tracks with its imposing style, design, display and power.
This “little roadster” weighs in at just over 13,200-lbs and measures 31-ft, 6-in in length. The supercharged 2500cc V-12 Packard Royal Streamliner engine is massive in size, and comes out of a World War II era PT boat from the 1940s.
