The Tumbler is equipped with a 6.
2 V8 engine delivering 400 hp, it weighs 2.
5 tons and attains a top speed of 160 km / h.

The Team Galag TG1, which was recently revealed by a teaser image, was built in collaboration with Parker Brothers Concepts and have a more standard set-up, less ‘comic-like’ than The Tumbler.
The TG1 uses a twin-turbo 3.
8-litre V8 engine, rated at about 760 hp and able to achieve extreme speed performance: the 0-100 km / h is covered in 2.
68 seconds, the 0-160 km / h in just 5.
65 seconds and the top speed will exceed 320 km / h.
This time the Gumball 3000 road rally will start on the 18 May in Copenhagen and will end after eight days in the Principality of Monaco, just before the start of the Formula 1 Grand Prix.
