Do you remember the that burned up the car internet a few years back? Well, its creator Corbin Goodwin is back with something possibly more ridiculous. Meet the Trolls Royce, a 1978 Silver Shadow II with a big twin-scroll turbocharger, an external intercooler, a four-speed manual from a Ford pickup, and a suspension built for off-roading. It is totally, utterly bonkers.
And amazingly, it all works. Our pal Matt Farah just drove it, and despite weighing well over 4000 pounds and having an absurdly soft suspension, the Trolls Royce actually sort of handles. And its factory 6.75-liter V8 takes to turbocharging surprisingly well, pumping out 400 hp.
Farah loves it. "Oh my god, you built the dumbest car in the world, and it's so f**king good," he says.
This is exactly the sort of ridiculous car the world needs. As car culture takes itself more and more seriously, Goodwin and his big Roller raise a giant middle finger to all of that. It's glorious.
