Between 1987 and 1992, Oldsmobile built a series of experimental Aerotech supercars that incorporated the latest performance technology with the aim of breaking multiple automobile speed records. A. J. Foyt, four-time Indy 500 winner, drove the first Aerotech vehicle set a world closed-course speed record of 257.123 mph on August 27, 1987 at the 7.712-mile test track near Fort Stockton Texas. It was powered by a turbocharged 2.3L Quad 4 generating over 1000 hp. Read more for two videos and additional information.
Oldsmobile produced a total of three variants of the original Aerotech to prove the capabilities of the company’s Quad 4 engine. Two featured the shorter rear body work and were called Short Tail versions (ST), while one had a longer rear body work, called the Long Tail (LT). The final version, produced between December 7 and 15, 1992, is powered by a 4.0-litre Oldsmobile Aurora V8 engine as well as being equipped with functional lights. That version broke 47 speed endurance records, including the 10,000- and 25,000-kilometre world speed records.
