Detroit Diesel Hot Rod Update 3

Twin-turbo V16 Detroit Diesel 16V-71 Hot Rod

The last time we saw Arjan Kolkman’s Detroit Diesel hot rod it was waiting on the cab to be painted. Since then the custom hot rod has been finished and recently made its debut at the STP Truck Weekend in Koewacht, Netherlands. Powering this beast is a huge 18.6 L (1,136 ci) Detroit Diesel 16V-71 V16 with two turbochargers and connected to an Allison 750 automatic transmission. Listen to what that sounds like below.
