What kind of car is Brent Austin’s Megalodon?

Brent Austin has built many fast cars till now including one of his most popular cars, 69 Camaro known as Megalodon. He is the owner-driver and builder of  Megalodon which has also become a regular sight at major no-prep events. The car produces around 2,000 horsepower and is set up to run on virtually any surface. Austin himself explained that it is an old 10.5-inch tire, steel top, and glass front-end door car.

The original name for the car Megalodon came from the shark-like silver paint job and side vents that mimic a shark’s fins. The paint code used is Titanium Poly by PPG, a Lamborghini color that makes the car’s lines snap.

Brent has surely created a big splash in Megalodon with its tire wrinkling, wheels up, hard-pulling passes at no prep events, and the car even quickly became a contender in the Big Tire class which started to buzz in the stands with the fans.

When there was a race at  Bristol, some viewers commented that there was no car that could compete with him.

It took a year for Austin to build that car. He did all of his work in the garage. One of the big advantages he got from it is, he does his own tuning. This means he has full control over where to add or pull power right from the driver’s seat.

He has a separate Instagram account for his Megalodon, named @themegalodon69.
