Thor 24 is a ferocious truck that can reach speeds of over 130 mph. It took American Michael Harrah seven years to construct. In 2019, the most powerful truck ever manufactured was auctioned off. The truck is based on a 1979 Peterbilt 359, and the guy chose to lengthen the cab to accommodate the massive engine.
The most crucial component is the huge Detroit Diesel 24V-71 engine, which is often seen in seagoing boats. By the way, two similar engines were added, giving the truck a 24-cylinder power system with 3,974 hp. The truck, weighing 32,000 lbs, can reach speeds of around 130 mph.
A train-like braking mechanism has also been fitted for increased braking efficiency. The American also inserted various chrome pieces and performed the airbrushing method to get the desired appearance. There was no further information about it after it was in the hands of a collector in Saudi Arabia.
By the way, the buyer chose to remain anonymous. Remember that the truck was auctioned off in 2019 for a total of $12 million, with Michael Harrah receiving $5 million of the earnings.
