Banks Super-Turbo Freightliner, the Gymkhana truck. This truck is built for the Pikes Peak climb, and produces a monstrous 2,000hp. How it achieves 2,000 horses? Well, using Bank Power’s 50 years of expertise in diesel engines, they fitted a turbocharger as well as a supercharger to the 14-litre inline-6 engine.

The power is not just extracted using the turbocharger and supercharger, but also has a 50/50 water/methanol injection and also a 2 stage water cooling sprayers that shoots into the intercooler. Four nozzles placed at the intake of the superchargers are activated based on the supercharger’s outlet temperature, in two stages. Just before the air enters the inline-6 engine, 6 nozzles sprays 2 stages of the said water and methanol mix into the intake manifold runners for each cylinder.

Watch the video below as the truck terrorizes a shipping port, and ended with a twist!
