Tony Hawk’s V8 Skateboard packs 630 horsepower

Why not strap a monster crate motor onto a custom skateboard frame? If you did, would it be the fastest? That’s debatable. I say that the engine would tear the frame up and throw the rider before it could gain significant speed. Some would say that you don’t even need an engine to go fast on a skateboard. That didn’t stop the folks at V8 Supercars from Sydney, Australia from building their monster 630hp V8 Skateboard. Sometimes you’ve just gotta scratch that itch, right?
