My first thought is, how did they get it rolling? I mean without spinning the tires off.

I mean, I don't doubt the the engine could pull the weight, but come one, tell us how you really did it. Don't sit there and tell us it was "lightly modified" by adding 15,500 lbs. of ballast, but still kept the stock suspension.

I know, they added a couple Duramaxs under it... It would only take one PSD of course.

Here it is.

YouTube - Fifth Gear: VW Touareg Tows A 747

I still don't believe the stock suspension with all of that extra weight...

How would a Superduty do with a 747?

I call B S too.

I might have to run across the street and chain some leer jets together and see what I can do.
