$100 jalopy is world’s fastest car

A Wolverhampton man has spent 25 years and £100,000 [about $180,000] on turning a £60 [$100 jalopy] into the world’s fastest car. Andy Frost has turned his 1972 K-reg Vauxhall Victor into a supercar capable of 0-60 in just one second.

The car is fitted with a modified 9.3-litre Chervrolet engine and takes just 7.8 seconds to hit 183mph, reports The Sun. Andy said: “We could’ve had a bigger house. But we have a unique car faster than any other on the road.”

Wife Debbie said: “The car’s become like one of the family.”
