While we’re still waiting for the Lamborghini Huracan to hit the streets over here in the US, they are out and about elsewhere in the world. We came across some video of a brand new Lamborghini Huracan in Rosso Mars running heads up vs a Porsche 911 Turbo S PDK Cabriolet. The Huracan’s 5.2L V10 with 610 horsepower, 7 speed dual clutch transmission and 3,450 pound curb weight should put it pretty far ahead of the Porsche’s 3.8L Twin Turbocharged Flat 6 with 530 horsepower and a 7 speed PDK transmission and 3,600 curb weight. However, the races are very close with each car Read More
John from LoneStar EV Performance in Houston, TX put his Assault & Battery Electric Miata on the dyno for the first time to see just how powerful the 2000 amp Zilla controllers feeding dual NetGain 9-inch motors are. They initially had some trouble on the dyno since the instant torque of the electric motors caused the huge slicks to go up in smoke on the dyno rollers. After a few tries of slowly rolling into the power they were able to get somewhat of a clean dyno run with the Miata putting down an astounding flat 1,350 ft-lbs of torque from 0 to 3,000 RPM Read More
The team over at K&N had some time with the all new Dodge Challenger Hellcat and strapped it to their DynoJet to see just how much horsepower Dodge’s new beast of a car is actually making. The Hellcat did not disappoint, putting down an impressive 635 horsepower and 591 ft-lbs of torque to the rear wheels through it’s 8 speed automatic transmission. Using a 13% driveline loss that puts the Hellcat at around 730HP and 679 ft-lbs of torque. Impressive numbers to backup it’s 10.8 @ 126 MPH run down the 1/4 mile last month. Enjoy the video and dyno graph Read More
Dodge has released details on the all new Charger Hellcat brining in the entire drivetrain from the Challenger Hellcat, a 6.2L Supercharged HEMI V8 with 707 horsepower and an 8 speed automatic transmission. This combination pushes Dodge past the likes of Mercedes AMG and BMW M to take the titles of quickest, fastest and most powerful 4 door sedan in the world. Dodge is quoting impressive numbers with a 0-60 MPH time of just 3.7 seconds and a 1/4 mile time of 11 seconds flat on street tires. Top speed of the all new Charger Hellcat is an astounding 204 MPH! All we Read More

Emmanuel out of Alberta Canada put his 2013 Tesla Model S P85 on a DynoJet dyno for a couple of pulls to see how much power it could put down. It’s not clear what happened, but the Tesla’s instant torque apparently confused the DynoJet dyno, causing it to max out the torque readings at 2,000 ft-lbs of torque. Obviously that’s not correct, but the horsepower numbers were inline with his Tesla Model S P85 putting down a relatively flat 436 horsepower to the wheels across a wide range of speeds, likely 10 MPH to 130 MPH. Tesla rates the Model S Read More
AMS Performance took their 2014 Mercedes E63 AMG S AWD to Great Lakes Dragway for some some passes down the 1/4 mile running an impressive 10.8 @ 129 MPH with 0-60 MPH coming in just 2.8 seconds. Their E63 was equipped with a tune to increase boost as well as a set of downpipes and a cat-back exhaust system. With these modifications we estimate increase of around 140 horsepower from the 5.5L V8 BiTurbo which would put this E63 well over 700HP. Coming soon is even more power for the E63 with AMS upgraded turbochargers, intercoolers and intakes which should Read More
