Worldwide Auctioneers, the auction house in charge of Thor24, claims the boldly named truck is the "most powerful big rig ever built" because of its horsepower rating, which is reached through a 24-cylinder engine with 12 superchargers.
The Norse god-named big rig was crafted by real estate developer Mike Harrah over seven years and thousands of hours, according to the auction house. The project cost him $7 million, Driving reported.
"Mike Harrah has accomplished a lot - a real estate developer, stunt pilot, and offshore boat racer, to name a few - but nothing else compares to his incredible vision in creating Thor - the most epic big-rig truck ever built, and named, of course, for the Norse God with unstoppable power," the auction house wrote in a statement.
Although Thor 24 was auctioned off at $12 million, a 10% buyers premium was added, bringing its total to $13.2 million, according to Automobile.
