Here is a great video of a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 running heads up and from a roll against a Porsche 911 Turbo S PDK. The Lamborghini has intake and exhaust while the 911 is bone stock. As expected, the 911 gets the LP560 from a digg, but surprisingly, the LP560 was able to pull past the 911 at higher speeds.
Team Haiyin Racing set a new USA drag racing record for an all electric car with their 1981 Chevrolet Camaro running 10.08 @ 127 MPH at Lebanon Valley Dragway last week. This Camaro is powered by two Cafe Electric Zila 2K HV’s using a Lithium Polymer Battery Pack built with 14P – 5AH 3.7v cells.
Setup with a tube chassis, 4 link suspension along with full slicks, the instant torque provided by the twin electric motors allows for a great launch with a 1.48 60′ time. Take a look at the pictures, timeslip and video below:

A test Viper outfitted with the new front end of the 2013 Dodge Viper was spotted cruising around over the weekend. The car is heavily disguised using blacked out fabric material, so not much can really be seen. Although being that the front end can still be fitted on the older car makes us wonder how much has really changed. Hopefully we’ll see the return of a monster V10 pushing at least 700 horsepower with a more advanced transmission from the likes of the Ferrari 458 Italia.
