Camaro Clash – Old vs New Street Hits

Getting back to the street, Big Frank has located a couple of Camaro enthusiasts looking to grudge race. This race will pit a third generation Camaro against a fifth generation Camaro in a series of roll races on the interstate in Mexico. Both cars are seriously modified to increase performance, and both are adept at eating asphalt. Check it out. The Gen V (2010-2015) Camaro has been upgraded with a 418 cubic-inch stroker motor. This is a naturally aspirated beast with performance cylinder heads, camshaft and intake manifold. Shifting duties are left to a 6-speed manual transmission. Representing the old Read More

Tesla Model S Plaid vs. Bugatti Chiron – Drag Race

This contest gives the term “big money race” a whole new meaning. You see, the machines involved are worth a fortune. Can you say sticker shock? The Bugatti comes with a sticker price of approximately $3.8-million. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Tesla Model S Plaid with the Track Pack only costs about $130K. More than your average golf cart, the Tesla Model S Plaid Track Pack comes with a top speed of 200 mph.

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).

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

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.

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.
