Since it’s a pretty safe bet that car guys are easier to find than car girls, Maria is a rare commodity indeed.

2016 McLaren 570S – Extended Test Drive

So, ever wonder what $187,400 will buy you? One thing is a lightweight, high-powered, British sports car; more specifically, the 2016 McLaren 570S. If you would like to know what it’s made of, this video takes us back to Mazda’a Laguna Seca Raceway for another round of the 2016 Best Driver’s Car from Motor Trend and Mother’s.

Twin Turbo 7-Liter Camaro Wins 2016 Hot Rod Drag Week

Check out this clip of Clark Rosenstengel and his GenV Camaro. He lays down a 7.80 1/4-mile pass at 170 mph in a car that still has factory air conditioning. If that isn’t enough to prove this is a true street machine, it is also riding on radial tires (Mickey Thompsons). One might conclude that, with a Steve Morris built 427 cubic-inch LSX (that means Chevrolet) engine and a pair of sparkling stainless-steel Bullseye 80-millimeter turbochargers, this grueling week long event (Hot Rod Drag Week) would be a cake walk. Not so much; you see, Clark and the gang had Read More

Tesla Model S P100D 1/4 Mile Testing at Palm Beach International Raceway vs a Huracan and Nissan GT-R

While we got rained out last week and weather wasn’t looking good for this week either, we headed out to Palm Beach International Raceway to give the all new Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous it’s first real world test down the 1/4 mile drag strip.

To make things interesting we lined up the Tesla vs a Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 and based on previous runs with the Huracan and some Racelogic VBOX tests with the P100D, we knew it was going to be a close race.  Behind the wheel of the Read More

New Half-Mile World Record

Underground Racing (UR) has scored again with their earth shaking X-Package. UR has taken the lead in developing turbocharged performance machines and, if this past weekend’s festivities are any indication, they aren’t planning on relinquishing their position any time soon. The backdrop is a closed airstrip during the ShiftS3ctor event in McMinnville, Oregon. All of the top players are on hand for this event, as you might expect, and world records are being broken all weekend. At the end of the event, Richard Fowler owned the new World Record in the 1/2-mile at 247.25 mph – that’s 7 mph faster Read More
