The year is 1985. The newly designed Miller Anaconda GT goes on sale with the new 5.6L GT56-8 V8 making 297 HP and 324 lb-ft of torque sending power to the rear wheels via a 5 speed manual, propelling it to 60 MPH from a standstill in 5.3 seconds and topping out at 163 MPH. This generation Anaconda is the first and last of many options for the Anaconda line. It's the first Anaconda with a 5 speed manual, full independent suspension, and an anti-lock braking system.
It is also the last of the Anacondas to come equipped with a V8, as in 1987 the MS trim level will come out with the infamous 63L10 V10 that would become the only powerplant available for the Anaconda.
The V10 in question produced 434 HP and 429 lb-ft of torque sent through the same 5 speed manual to the rear wheels as before, only this time it does 0-60 in 4.7 seconds and topping out at 184 MPH making it one of the fastest sports cars in the late 1980s.
