Well, trucks have are tuned for power rather than outright speed but there's really 2 classes of pickups these days. More and more are being built for power and speed. Hell, they're even turning into family vehicles now with more models coming 4 doors and roomy back seats, at the cost of bed space of course but even still, a 'family' pickup is very versatile.
Fen, don't encourage him. A 1.4 Civic Sport could probably outrun that fuckin thing. Besides, the size of the engine doesn't directly correlate to the amount of power it produces. Also note that pickups are tuned for torque not speed. Regardless, yes, you probably could eat him alive as that thing must have been haemorrhaging horsepower for years. Assuming it even actually HAS a working engine and not just a badge on the back saying what it used to have (or what the previous owner(s) wanted people to think they'd got)
However, the truck I posted is the 2003 Silverado SS; a truck designed purely with speed in mind but it has the towing capacity of your every day variety. Good god, I could have posted the 4.3L turbo-charged GMC Syclone... that would outrun this shitty V12 and it's only a V6.
Besides, how was I encouraging? You know that he doesn't have a goddamn BMW. He's a stupid chav with no money. I thought we all knew that.
