The Toronado was originally launched by GM as a full-sized front wheel drive personal luxury car to complete with Ford's Thunderbird. The design team put the massive V8 on top of the driving wheels and marketing team produced all kinds of nonsense about how this was safer and better for handling. The monster 455 cubic inch Olds Rocket V8 mated to the front wheels puts out 375 horsepower and 510 ft-lbs of stump obliterating torque. Mashing the go pedal from a stop will obliterate the front tires in an old testament display of godly might and power.
