Jay Leno Gets Into Nasty Crash In A 2,500 Horsepower Car

This isn’t your typical Jay Leno’s Garage episode. In this gut-wrenching episode, Jay Leno climbs into a Hemi Under Glass Barracuda that has an astonishing 2,500 horsepower under the hood glass. The Hemi engine has been placed in the rear of the car instead of the front. While this makes for a pretty terrible drag racer, it actually makes a wonderful stunt car to help hype up the crowd. The car has been retrofitted with wheelie bars to help stabilize the rear engined car, and although it may help with controlling the car when doing stunts, it’s completely useless for turning. Skip to 2:50 for the craziness.
