Just In Time for Lunch – V8 Powered Blender

Leave it to those nuts at Top Gear to come up with the world’s most powerful blender. Top Gear took the 430HP 6.2L V8 off a Corvette and used it to power a blender that can blend pretty much anything. Stuff that you normally wouldn’t consider blending, like a brick, turns to liquid really quick when you fire this baby up. It even comes with a gas pedal! Kinda puts my $600 Vita-mix to shame.

    Gotta love top gear.

    This is from yesterdays show. Do you guys in America / Canada get Top Gear?

    I read a while back that the Americans were going to make their own version? :/

    1. I wonder if the folks at Will It Blend will pick one up. Ha!

        Jeremy always came up with crazy idea and make me laugh and roll over the ground! This is a classic!

  3. Aldhis says:

    How hungry are you to use a V8 machine for blender? 😀
    Anyway, I like the video.

  4. Ryan McLean says:

    This is extremely pointless and a waste of money…but really really cool.
    I want one

  5. Study Babes says:

  6. Cool video. I couldn’t stop laughing. Thank you for sharing.

  7. John, very cool video! I’m hunkered down, trying to predict when buying begins again, how to position myself to profit from the turn-around down here in the USA.

  9. John, I just blogged about Sir Richard Branson, who is now following me on Twitter (!)

    He recently launched a new book, ‘Business Stripped Bare’, and his advertising campaign was…well unique.

    Here is the link to my blog: http://donotreadthisblogunless.blogspot.com/

      I could only imagine what would happen if Kwan go near that blender!

  10. wisdom says:

    Good find. Thanks for the share.

  11. and how will this blender help us all make money online ? (other than perhaps making your Vita-Mix blender a tax deduction since I suppose it could (cough cough) be considered a review and as such… a business expense. 😛

  12. BusinessX says:

    They drank it! I can’t believe they even put it up to their lips…

  13. Watched this on TopGear on Sunday, great show! If it weren’t for the brick that was mushed up among the other bits and pieces I would have probably had a sip myself.

  14. We have a VitaMix as well and it’s awesome, but the V8 powered one beats the snot out of it.

  15. John, very cool video, I can’t believe they even put it up to their lips…
