Say Hello to the 1578HP Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut

December 8th, 2022

Say hello? Ha! It’s more like wave as it flies by. With a limited production of 125 vehicles and a price tag of nearly $3-million, there’s absolutely no way that I’m getting close to the Jesko. Nevertheless, with a top speed of 310 mph, I couldn’t help but dig a little deeper into this Swedish masterpiece. Powering the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut is a 5.1-liter, twin-turbo V8 designed and engineered in-house by Koenigsegg. It features a flat-plane crankshaft milled from a solid chunk of billet steel. The crankshaft weighs just 28 pounds and allows the V8 to rev to 8,500 rpm. Lightweight Read More

December 7th, 2022

In this clip, we catch up with 1320 Video for War in the Woods at the Brown County Dragway in Indiana. Featured in this video is Straight Gangster, the 1933 Dodge owned by Nick Plewniak. If the street racing vibe is what you seek, this place will get your juices flowing. When the sun goes down, this venue begins to pulsate with No Prep attitude. The track is loud and crowded with spectators. Nick draws a rowdy Camaro in the first contest. With Limpy on the light, both cars cut a clean light and launch out of the blocks. The Read More

December 6th, 2022

Here we have a gathering of the world’s fastest naturally aspirated, rear-engine, rear-wheel drive supercars – and one exceptional racing bike. The top seeded competitor in this contest is the Ducati (15,500 RPM) Panigale V4 SP2. Representing the four-cylinder (1.1-liter) contingent, this top-of-the-line track-focused superbike is capable of producing 210hp and 91 lb.-ft. of torque. At a weight of 429-pounds (with rider), the Ducati can cut through the quarter-mile in 9.5-seconds @ 153 mph. In the runner-up spot is the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. As the most outrageous Corvette yet, the C8 Z06 is equipped with a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter Read More

Turbo Four-Cylinder vs. All-Motor V8 – 60 MPH Street Hits

December 2nd, 2022

Tonight, these brave competitors risk shame, humiliation and hurt feelings as they stroll onto the interstate (in Mexico). Allegedly, the owner of a modified V8 Ford Mustang 5.0 has been overheard talking a load of smack about a certain four-cylinder Mopar/DSM turbo car. True or not, they are about to lay it all on the line in a head-to-head grudge race. It’ll be a rolling start initiated at 60 mph. The Dodge Neon SRT-4 is a bit of a sleeper. In fact, with four doors and an unassuming exhaust note, this grocery getter is almost comatose. Don’t get it twisted, Read More

Radical 1991 GMC Syclone V8 Turbo Swap – Drag Racing

November 30th, 2022

While trolling the pits at H-Town Throwdown, the 1320 Video crew happened across this unique all-wheel drive mini-pickup truck. The GMC Syclone was offered for the 1991 and (technically) 1992 model years. This pickup featured a turbocharged 4.3-liter V6 engine with an automatic transmission. The Syclone came with a sinister blacked out paint scheme, specialty wheels and flashy badging. That was until the twins got hold of it. You’ve got to see it now. After bumping the turbo up to a 98-millimeter, the boys pretty much gutted the V6. Heavy-duty seemed to be the order of the day so, they Read More

10-Second Fox Body Mustang – Extreme Street Class

November 29th, 2022

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona for Street Car Takeover 2022. Featured in this video is the Jarhead Fox Body (1991) Mustang. Let’s join the action – already in progress. It’s Round One of Extreme Street 10.0 and Jarhead is taking on a sweet looking C6 Corvette. After a brief burnout, both cars enter the staging area. The tree drops to green, and the Mustang blasts off towards the finish line. The Corvette never leaves the starting line. Mechanical issues? Jarhead posts a 10.06 @ 135.73 mph. That’s fairly respectable for Read More

Dynamic Street Hits – 870WHP Challenger Hellcat vs. 690WHP Corvette Z06

November 26th, 2022

It’s about to get really gritty on the streets (of Mexico) this evening. The flagship of the Mopar lineup is flaring its nostrils and looking to exert dominance over the shining star of the Chevrolet group. This pair of supercharged production muscle cars – modified for performance – will run for all the marbles in a roll racing contest that initiates at 60 mph. Get ready! Equipped with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, the Chevrolet C6 (2005-2013) Corvette Z06 was capable of generating 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque in stock condition. It could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph Read More

1972 Chevrolet C10 Pro Touring Build

November 23rd, 2022

Thanks to Shawn (Autotopia LA) for another stunning build from the left coast. This time we have a Chevy C10 smoke machine built to tackle the curves or run all out in a straight line. Whatever kind of racing you have in mind; this truck is up to the task. Check it out. It all starts under the hood. A naturally aspirated 6.2-liter LS3 V8 is pushed back in the engine bay nearly 10-inches. This helps with weight distribution and handling. Nothing radical with the engine, just a performance camshaft, some light porting and exhaust headers (2-inch stainless exhaust front Read More

Cobra Mustang vs. Coyote Mustang – Street Hits

November 22nd, 2022

When it is of vital importance that you know who has the baddest Mustang in town, you take it to the streets (of Mexico) and find out. With their machines finely tuned and in optimum trim, the two competitors removed the reigns to let their ponies loose on the interstate. It’s 50 mph roll racing for these two thoroughbreds, and they can’t hardly wait to get to it. On the left is the fourth gen Ford Mustang SVT Cobra. This highly sought-after coupe came with a supercharged 4.6-liter V8 engine and a Tremec T56 manual transmission. In stock condition, this Read More

OutlAWD Honda Civic Six-Second Monster

November 18th, 2022

The name James Kempf is synonymous with front-wheel drive stick shift Honda speed. This time he knocked it out of the park, at the Import vs Domestic World Cup Finals 2022, when he crushed the World Record for a Honda (manual trans with an H-pattern shifter) in the quarter-mile. He reeled off an elapsed time of 6.91-seconds @ 198 mph. By any standard, that is really picking them up and putting them down. James can tell you about the car. Believe it or not, the engine is a four-cylinder 2.0 V-Series. Of course, it is built and sleeved. The turbocharger Read More
