The 9-second Hearse Does Quarter Miles to Iron Maiden

This video showcases someone’s hearse doing the quarter mile in just nine seconds. To Iron Maiden. If you’re anything like me, you just read that and nearly passed out. This defines awesomeness.

What you’re seeing here is a 1,000 horsepower Chevrolet Hearse from AMS called the Madness. The music in the background is from Iron Maiden, as are the logos on the car itself. Now, think about this a little. You have a 1,000 hp machine that weighs over five thousand pounds, but it’s hitting sixty miles per hour in only 2.26 seconds and doing the quarter mile in 9.94 seconds at 137 miles per hour.

Some people are in a hurry to get to their graves. Others plan to blow by theirs at speeds too fast for death to catch. Hell ya.
