Video: World’s Quickest Street Car Launches A Pair Of Sea-Doos

On this edition of “things you’ve never seen before” an NHRA dragster drives to the boat ramp and makes a launch.  This time it’s not a launch down the race track but instead it is launching a pair of Sea-Doo watercraft.

This is no ordinary dragster though.  It’s equipped with headlights, turn signals, mirrors and everything necessary to make it the world’s quickest street legal car.

On the drag strip, this 4,000 horsepower car will make a quarter mile pass within six seconds.  When not at the drag strip though, racer Tom Bailey hooks up a pair of Sea-Doo GTX 260’s to the tow hitch and trailers them to the local boat ramp.

Yup, that’s something we have not seen before and we’re pretty sure you haven’t either.  So how does it accomplish this task?  Well just like any other road-going vehicle except that you have to contend with a lot of attention from the public and the police.

With limited rear-view visibility, it seems a bit more difficult backing the ski’s into the water and we’re pretty sure that Tom is doing everything possible to not get those rear tires into the water.  Even when pulling the ski’s out of the water, the dragster is doing burnouts all the way out of the ramp area.

So check out the video for yourself.  It might be the only time you every see something like this.

    Just looking at the rearview glass alone, it’s hilarious at what some people refer to as a “street car”. But hey, that’s ok … to each their own. Kinda like someone defining a “classic” car. At the 2019 Buick GS Nationals, I saw a stock bodied Buick Regal powered by Buick V6 turbo engine run 6 second 1/4 miles at 200+ mph. Heck, it even looked like a real car.

    It actually pulled them out better than I may have guessed. I notice he was very careful not to get too deep. A new meaning to “water burnouts”.
