Fastlane Teases Ram 1500 R/T "Terramoto" Street Truck

Fastlane, the Houston-based tuning company behind the limited-edition Chevy Silverado 427SS, has announced it's working on a new project for high-performance pickup enthusiasts. This time, it's a custom Ram 1500 R/T dubbed the "Terramoto," Spanish for "earthquake."
Fastlane intends to add a supercharger to the R/T's 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 to raise horsepower from 390 hp to 500 hp. The Ram R/T Terramoto will also feature a custom exhaust, custom bumper covers, a 4- to 6-inch lowering kit, minitub kit, 24x12-inch rear wheels and 22x10-inch front wheels by Assanti and a custom interior with R/T logo seats.
"We wanted to take a very capable truck and make it even more engaging," said Nick Field, co-owner and founder of Fastlane. "It’s rare to find a pickup that will keep up and even surpass just about anything on the street or at the track, but that’s exactly our goal for this truck."
In stock form, the Ram 1500 R/T can go from zero to 60 mph in under 6 seconds thanks to a "loose" torque converter that allows the engine to rev closer to the point where the engine makes peak torque before it locks to transfer power, via the transmission, to the wheels.
