Up the mountain in a 800-hp piece of history: Flickr photo of the day

August 29, 2012

Powered by an 800-hp Chevy V-8, this Lister Knoop/Mann Special -- built and driven by Richard Knoop from a 1958 Jaguar Lister frame -- made it up Pikes Peak earlier this month in 10 minutes, 56 seconds, the fastest time in its class and good for 12th overall. This photo of its climb by matt.paton came from the Motoramic group on Flickr -- a sampling of which now appears on every story we post.
