Brütal BusThe Brütal Bus — a soapbox built by a bunch of dedicated fans based on Brutal Legend‘s tour bus — was completed and went ahead and won the Red Bull Soapbox Race a few days ago. Take that, Yoshi!

Not sure why their official blog has been silent, but whatever the case Team Ironheade totally went for it on September 26th and was named overall winner of the derby. With a top speed of 46.1mph, the bus flew around the course and left the competition in its trail of awesomeness.

Here are some photos taken by LAist and Marketwire:

It’s all good promotion, plus, who wouldn’t wanna race in something like that?!

I don’t think they meant for the front of the amp to stick to the car like that, but that’s possibly more badass, in it’s own special way.

Now the more important question: will they keep it or sell it? :D

I got money on them getting a camera, someone getting in, setting it on fire, and see how far it can go with actual fire on it, and it showing up on the internet one Metal Monday or Roctober 13.
