Porsche 991 Turbo S Quarter-Mile Record

October 21st, 2017

In proving their continued commitment to building the fastest cars on the planet, EKanoo Racing (from the beautiful Kingdom of Bahrain) has inked themselves a new entry in the world record book of quarter-mile drag racing. With a lot of help from ESMotor (also of the Kingdom of Bahrain), these skilled racing aficionados managed to accomplish what no one ever had – on 1320-feet of asphalt. They built and raced a Porsche 991 Turbo S from a standing start through the trap in 8.993-seconds at a top speed of 160.7 mph. What a way to kick-off the new racing season Read More

Tesla Invests in Muscle Cars

October 19th, 2017

In a recent interview (parody) with Elon Musk of Tesla, a reporter asked if the automaker was indeed buying up muscle cars and hot rods around the suburban Atlanta (Georgia) area. Musk smiled wryly and explained to the journalist that he was mistaken. While it has been widely reported that Tesla has come to own many muscle cars in and around the 303; these reports are largely limited to a single P100D and an event called Street Car Takeover Atlanta. It would seem that an all-electric and gutted (it still weighs in at nearly two-and-a-half tons) Tesla P100D had thoroughly Read More

Muscle Car Madness

October 18th, 2017

You may call it cars gone wild, muscle car madness, or insanity on wheels but it won’t change the fact that this video makes fantasy come to life. Many of us remember the crazy toy cars of our Mattel Hot Wheels collections. With their giant chrome engines, protruding through the hood and towering above the roof line, these tiny die cast creations inspired some of us to build our first hot rods. The cars (and trucks) in this video closely resemble the shiny (and radically modified) toys that we played with as children – only they are very real. Each Read More

Turbo Tahoe Tire Toaster

October 17th, 2017

This is one bad grocery-getter. Shane Cook decided to take his full-bodied Chevrolet Tahoe and transform it into a 9-second (@ 135 – 140 mph) tire smoking monster. This clip takes us from the dyno room (857whp and 832 lb.-ft. of torque) to the street and finally to the drag strip. Once Shane gets the Tahoe to the strip, he whips up on as many Camaros and Mustangs as he can find. The Chuck Wagon (Cook’s) is equipped with a 5.3-liter engine that has been upgraded with a pair of ported 862 cylinder heads, a Tick Performance camshaft, and a Read More

McLaren 720S runs 9’s in the 1/4 Mile with the Lamborghini Huracan Peformante

October 16th, 2017

We head out to Palm Beach International Raceway with the McLaren 720S and DoctaM3’s brand new Lamborghini Huracan Performate for some drag racing down the 1/4 mile. While the weather is still really hot down here in South Florida, we managed to get the McLaren 720s into the 9’s in completely stock form on OEM street tires and make some test passes with the Performate as well. Best run for the McLaren 720s was 9.98 @ 141 MPH while the Lamborghini Huracan Performance did 10.7 @ 129 MPH.  We also had the Racelogic Performancebox in the cars and recorded a Read More

1964 GTO – Street Car Takeover

October 13th, 2017

With the memory of their deceased friend Mike as inspiration, this loyal group of friends and racing enthusiasts prepared this 1964 Pontiac GTO for the drag strip. After torqueing every last bolt and buckling Mike’s urn and ashes into the front seat, they set off for Tucson and the Street Car Takeover. Little did they know what a dramatic weekend of racing action was in store. The Goat was a one-owner car, purchased new by Mike’s dad. This band of compadres rebuilt the muscle car with a 428 Pontiac stroker kit (bored over to 467 cubic-inches). It has all the Read More

Thin Mint – 6-Second Mustang

October 11th, 2017

This brilliantly hued Mustang is much more than just a pretty face. It manages to post consistent 6-second elapsed times and win races in the process. To answer the obvious question: The paint job is a mixture of a seventies Ford Mustang Mach 1 color and (of all things) an Aston Martin shade. I’m not sure whether I like it or not but it is certainly unique. I definitely like what has been done under the hood. The best thing that can happen to a small coupe is a huge engine. The Thin Mint has a 5.4-liter modular unit from Read More

NA Viper Incinerates the Interstate

October 9th, 2017

Who says you have to have a power adder to win on the street? Everybody has got them these days. Turbochargers, superchargers, and nitrous – some racers even stack them just for good measure. I love them (and run them myself) but are they a must have? What happens when a good old boy decides to go with a whole mountain of naturally aspirated (NA) cubic inches in a high performance street beast? In this case, they call it SneakySnake. It’s an unassuming Dodge Viper (as unassuming as a Viper can be) and it is out to prove a point Read More

1160HP Koenigsegg Agera RS 0-400-0

October 6th, 2017

In proving that their product is up to the 0-400-0 challenge, Swedish automaker Koenigsegg gained exclusive access to an airstrip (and the largest solar farm in Scandanavia) in Vandel, Denmark. This was done for the sole purpose of testing their newly updated supercar, the Agera RS, in a 0-400-0 timed trial. This timed trial is not just for kicks and giggles. Christian von Koenigsegg, not being the type of individual to accept anything less than excellence, wanted to see the Agera RS best the world record 0-400-0 time of 41.96-seconds, set by Juan Pablo Montoya in a Bugatti Chiron (September Read More

Mustang GT500 vs Turbo Corvette – Street Rolls

October 5th, 2017

Your chariot awaits. Climb on board and buckle up for some crazy street racing action. The camera car is a Shelby GT500 Mustang that has been outfitted with a Kenne Bell 3.6-liter supercharger. It’s running E85 fuel. You’ve heard of kicking butt and taking names? (if not, just ask your grandpa). Well this Ford is definitely taking pictures but is it kicking butt? Let’s find out. The first contest is between the camera car and a Corvette Z06 with a camshaft upgrade and the full line of bolt-on accoutrement. It looks like the ‘Vette got gapped. Next, we have some Read More
