In the somewhat unlikely event that you've managed to escape this video of the world's most unlikely burnout machine, behold the clip in all its glory. A few creative gents managed to shove a turbocharged gasoline Volvo B21ET four cylinder from an overseas 240 in the nose of a tractor. They call it the "Terror Tractor," which, by some odd twist of the universe, is also the name of a passable metal band from Manhattan, Kansas. In stock form, the engine made around 157 horsepower, which is simply ludicrous by the mightily-geared standards of the tractor world.

The creation picks up its peasant skirt and hustles with a hurry, slinging sod and leaving the driver to hold on for dear life. It also does incredible burnouts, sending those pricey bar tires smoking with the drop of a clutch. Yes friends, this is our type of awesome. Check it out in the video below.

      Holy sweet jesus. No helmet or harness? That guy has bigger hang downs than I do. That's one fast tractor, and a disaster waiting to happen.

      It seems surprisingly stable. I would've expected it to want to roll like a log...

      This is one of the most ridiculous things I've seen here in a long time. Looks crazy to drive, but it seems like it'll only be a matter of time before it finally tips over.

      I will never look at tractors the same.

      If I see this on a country road, I hope it has a dotted line. I'd hate to have to pull off the road so it can pass me.

      That's some powerful Swedish witchcraft keeping that thing from tipping over!

      Ferruccio Lamborghini, the best client of Enzo Ferrari told him " You have to fix the gearbox !" , Ferrari says: " Go work with your tractors i´m the one who knows about sport cars!" Now i understand what Lamborghini decide to do after that and how he start early test cars! . Lesson: Never challenge a guy who knows about tractors!.

      Oh great, now every piece of machinery is going to have a warning label on the ROPS showing a stickman being ejected at 70 mph and heed the danger of high-powered gasoline engine swaps.

      The more things change, the more they stay the same... The "legendary" durable Volvo iron block engines (B16-B18-B20) were really just hot-rodded tractor motors. Now the turbo B21 (OHC, turbo) gets swapped back into a tractor! Awesome stuff. Somewhere I also recall that in some of the Scandanavian countries a youth is permitted to have a "tractor permit" that lets them drive at 14. This would be one crazy "learn-to-drive" rig!

        In Sweden you can get a permit to drive a tractor or "EPA car" (just a name for a car that has been rebuilt to have a top speed of 20 mph) when you're 15. All you do is to take a written test. If you can prove that you're just driving to a from a field (i.e. minimizing you're time on the road) you don't even need a permit for a tractor, but you must be at least 15. EPA cars were popular on the countryside up north due to cold weather and long distances to the closest neighbour...
