Running late to soccer practice? No problem.

The folks at Bisimoto have tricked out and tuned up this “Power-Van” to boast an enormous 1,029 horsepower. It’s still your standard seven-passenger 2014 Honda Odyssey, but with a massive overhaul done to the powertrain.

The minivan has achieved the four-figure horsepower feat through a number of changes under the hood – including but not limited to – AEM electronics, an Infinity ECU, Arias pistons, Turbonetics BTZ7265 twin turbochargers, Bisimoto’s custom 360 degree oil cap, a cat-back exhaust system, Deatschwerks 2200cc injectors, an upgraded Magnafuel 750cc fuel pump, R&R custom steel rods, a wastegate and blowoff valve.

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Earns High Marks

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Earns High Marks

It wasn’t all that long ago that people bought Hyundai’s because they were a less-expensive alternative to Toyotas and Hondas.

Nowadays, though, Hyundai models across all price points more than hold their own against the competition. A good case in point is the midsized four-door sedan, which earns high marks in one of the most fiercely competitive and crowded segments of the marketplace.

U.S. News & World Report ranks the 2013 Sonata in a dead heat with the all-new Ford Fusion Hybrid as being the very best among affordable sedans and ranks the Sonata Hybrid third. That’s mighty impressive, any way you look at it.
