Huge Turbo BMW 3-Series vs. Hybrid Turbo Nissan GT-R – Street Hits

Letting it all hang out on the streets, these two imports are insanely modified, precisely tuned and ready for action. It’s roll racing time and the venue is a major interstate (in Mexico). Place your seats in the upright position and buckle-up because it’s about to get crazy around here. The 2022 BMW 3-Series is a rear-wheel drive sedan powered by an all-aluminum (block and head) turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engine that can make 382hp in stock trim.

700HP LS Swapped BMW 6-Series Widebody

Our man Shawn (from Autotopia LA) was at Holley LS Fest in Bowling Green, Kentucky (home of the Corvette), when he ran across this spectacular LS swapped BMW. If you are a Beemer purist, don’t watch – it will give you nightmares. Otherwise, get a grip and hang on tight. This might be the baddest BMW you will ever see. Beginning under the hood (big surprise, right), there’s a supercharged 5.3-liter GM V8. This European hottie is running a stock bottom end with a Truck Norris camshaft, a full BTR rocker truniion kit and various Motion Raceworks bolt-ons. The power-adder Read More

Twin Turbo V8 Camaro vs. Big Turbo AWD Honda Civic – Drag Racing

Here we have an import versus domestic throwdown on a closed course. The Hoonigan group have put together this turbocharged matchup and it is off the chain. Let’s have a look at the machinery. In the left lane is the 1993 Honda Civic EG. Far removed from a docile sub-compact hatchback, this asphalt alligator features an all-wheel drivetrain with a 5-speed manual transmission. Scavenged from various Honda models, the all-wheel drive setup gives this car a distinct advantage when grip is difficult to find. The engine is a 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder Acura with a big turbo. He’s claiming 900hp but Read More

Twin Turbo Cadillac CTS-V vs. Corvette ZR1, Mustang GT500 and Camaro ZL1-Street Hits

We are returning to our roots tonight – back to the streets. We have roll racing from the streets of Texas, Mexico and the cars are muy calliente. There are turbocharged, supercharged and nitrous injected sleds on hand tonight as these street warriors do battle on the blacktop. Prepare for maximum acceleration. First up, we have a 930hp Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, with twin turbochargers on a built engine, going against a 750hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (unknown mods). Despite an obvious weight disadvantage, the Caddy puts a heart-stopping gap job on the Camaro. Better luck next time, Junior. Varsity, that is. Read More

Exploring the Boundaries with a Modified Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car

Ever seen a child land on their feet time and time again, heedless of the dangers of their precarious leaps and bounds? Now, imagine that child, all grown up and at the helm of a monster on wheels – a car not just with raw horsepower, but an entity with a remarkable ability to stick to the ground, defying almost all known laws of speed and gravity. This isn’t just a car; it’s an experience, a wild ride that blurs the lines between a race car and a street vehicle. “Always land straight, kids,” is not just a piece of Read More

Street Car Drags – Tesla Model 3 Performance vs. Charger RT, Mustang Fox Body and C8 Corvette

Rich is hanging out at the dragstrip and making rounds in his Tesla Model 3 Performance sedan. This thing looks like a guppy but attacks the track like a killer shark. Quiet and unassuming, this all-electric machine will be taking on high-performance production cars in various states of modification. This should make for some interesting eighth-mile drag racing action. The all-wheel drive Model 3 Performance is powered by dual electric motors capable of producing the equivalent of 480hp. This unpretentious grocery getter can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2-seconds. We are about to see how quickly it can Read More

Jeep Trackhawk vs. Mustang GT – Street Hits

Steeped in a cloak of darkness, this boisterous street race is set to quicken the pulse and heighten emotion. A pair of modified vehicles are poised to go head-to-head in a contest of speed and acceleration. The machines are both modified and that is where the similarities end. Let’s have a closer look. The 2018 Jeep Trackhawk is in the lineage of the most capable SUVs ever produced. With an all-wheel drivetrain and a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 (that can make 707hp), the Trackhawk is not backing down. Featured in this contest is a Jeep that has been upgraded with Read More

Seahawks Silver 1968 Camaro Restomod

One could safely assume that the owner of this Camaro is a football fan. The first clue is the Seattle Seahawks team colors all over the exterior and interior. Even the headlights are wrapped in a sickening shade of green (seahawk ain’t my team). If you look past the crazy color (Cortez Green with a flake of lime green pearl), what’s underneath is a street racer’s fantasy. The engine bay is surgically clean with an unexpected twist. It’s an E ROD! That’s right, an LSA supercharged 6.2-liter California compliant V8 motor capable of making 556hp. Complete with a color coordinated Read More
