Darnell Racing Enterprises is adding a new jet truck to their lineup!
Claimed as the world’s fastest fire truck at an amazing 407 mph, as certified by the Guinness Book of World Records, the “Aftershock” jet truck is a new addition to the Darnells’ already popular collection of jet vehicles. The Darnell family also owns the Shockwave jet truck and two Flash Fire jet pickup trucks, which have been popular sights on the airshow circuit.
The 1940 Ford fire truck runs off of two Rolls-Royce Bristol Viper jet engines, which together make 24,000 horsepower. That’s 70% more horsepower than a NASCAR stock car and twice the horsepower of the Flash Fire Jet Trucks!
In a statement, the Darnell’s said that the addition of Aftershock was due to “continued growth and demand of the best jet powered vehicles in the world.”
The vehicle will be at several airshows and drag racing events during the 2018 and 2019 show seasons.
