I'm pretty good at riding a skateboard, but I don't think I would have the stones to go anywhere near the V8 Skateboard. This skateboard was designed by Australian engineers as a way of "welcoming" Tony Hawk to the Telstra 500 V8 Supercar Race in Sydney.

The V8 Skateboard packs 630-horsepower onto an oversized skateboard with four wheels. The V8 Skateboard is controlled with two buttons: a throttle and a panic button. Check out the video above to see the creation of the V8 Skateboard featuring a short test run. Stats for Muscle Car Skateboards Trending: Older & Mild
