When it comes to getting packages where they're going, few crews are more on point than the team at UPS. Whether it's across the state or around the world, Brown gets your gear where it's going with a quickness. The company has used a fleet of proprietary delivery trucks since 1966, but judging from what American Trucker just discovered, someone's been turning some wrenches after hours. As it turns out, UPS has its own Hot Rod delivery special. Along with one wicked flame paint job and wild wheels, the beast packs something truly under its fiberglass hood.

Instead of a tired old diesel mill, a super-high output Ford Racing V8 dumps 500 horsepower on the rear wheels via a manual gearbox. As if that wasn't enough to raise some eyebrows, the engine supposedly runs off of straight alcohol for a clean-burning machine that can light the rear rubber on command. We dig the truck, but if it were ours, we'd be rocking stock wheels and a standard coat of UPS brown paint for the ultimate sleeper. Head over to SPEED to check out the video for yourself.

      What a tease! You said SHO, Zach and you need to talk to John Neff to learn how important that acronym is because you can't just go throwing it around like that. I was really hoping for a Yamaha or EcoBoost powered van! Way to disappoint on a Monday morning.

      My brother-in-law drives for UPS. He can't stand the new trucks w/ automatics: he complains the new trucks bring kids that have absolutely no idea how to drive to the company.

      UPS already has some sleeper trucks. I'm a driver and my building has some small package cars (500's) that have a chevy 4.8 or 5.3 in them with a 5-speed auto. I mean, it's not Mustang GT fast, but surprises many people when you floor it from a light and beat them to the merge. They absolutely scream too.
