Meet The 1000HP Rocket II Trike – The Craziest Build You Have Ever Seen!

A sculptor by trade, Frogman Tim Cotterill brought his trike design to Blastolene, the same folks who built Jay’s Tank Car. Now the powerful and eccentric Rocket II Trike is on the road, powered by a blown Hemi V8, which generates over 1000 hp.

This absolute monster looks stunningly awesome. It is called the 1000HP Rocket II Trike and it was invented by Tim Cotterill. Even though it looks like there are two wheels at the front, there is actually one giant piece of aluminum onto which two tires are placed.

It came from England, and as Tim said, America is the only place where he could drive the 1000HP Rocket II Trike. It was made with absolute precision and attention to details, but the best part about this utterly unusual trike is the engine.


It is the holy grail of drag racing engines, the blown Hemi V8 that is capable of making as much as 1,000 HP. It was built specifically for this trike.

It has a center hub steering and the front was lowered down. Tim is also known as the Frogman. He is the one that makes those custom frogs that are commonly found in every home. This unusual trike was actually built by Michael. Tim paid him a visit with his designs and Michael was the one that made this piece of wonder possible.
