Dig Racing from Atlanta – Corvette Z06 vs Lambo, GT-R & Hellcat

October 21st, 2015

If what this ‘Vette does to the competition is an example of Southern hospitality – then I don’t believe I’ll have any – thanks anyhow. The Chevrolet C6 Corvette Z06 rolls off the assembly line with a 505hp 7.0-liter LS7 with titanium alloy connecting rods and a dry sump oiling system. This particular car has been treated to a camshaft upgrade, a high-flow intake manifold, and a nitrous kit. No estimated horsepower rating has been made available at this time. You certainly don’t expect a $65k Chevy to spank a $240k Lamborghini Gallardo but that is exactly what happens at Read More

700HP IMW Honda Civic Battles Supercars

September 15th, 2015

Check out this footage of the Innovative Motor Works Honda Civic going toe-to-toe with some exotic supercars. The business of the day is done as 65 mph roll racing. First, the “little import that could” lines up against a mighty 700hp Mustang Shelby GT500 and whips him handily. Next up is a turbocharged Toyota Supra, which is also narrowly dispatched. The Civic isn’t able to get a handle on the awesome sounding supercharged 775hp Corvette and gets beaten by a nose. Finally, an odd contest with a lame Huracan and a bad Bavarian wins easily. The Civic is outfitted with Read More

So, you like things a little abnormal? You having pains for something strange? This Chevrolet powered BMW should be good for what ails you. You will be hard pressed to find another European sports coupe that is “hitting a lick” like this. Check out all the fun, as this well heeled Beamer gets better and better as the day wears on and turns the best times of the day in the cool temps that darkness brings to the New Mexico night.

Drag Racing BMW i8

August 3rd, 2015

In this video, you will witness an all-wheel drive, 4-passenger BMW i8 coupe going head to head with such supercars as the Ferrari Speciale and the Nissan GT-R. Surprisingly, despite having a horsepower rating of only 357, the i8 seems to hold its own in every contest, even winning a bout or two. As you may know, the BMW i8 is a hybrid powered coupe that is equipped with an intercooled and twin turbocharged 1.5-liter L91, inline 3-cylinder (yes, 3) engine, with direct fuel injection and 2-electric motors. It has a curb weight of 3,455-pounds and can achieve 60 mph Read More

GTO vs. BMW – Street Throwdown

May 18th, 2015

This clip comes to you fresh from the wild streets of Old Mexico. Two late model sports coupes have “squared off” in a primal contest of speed. This is a rolling drag race, initiated with three distinctive beeps of the horn at approximately 50 mph, between a retro Pontiac GTO and a BMW 335i. The “Goat” is well equipped with a 6.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine, with a high-performance tune installed, open exhaust headers, and a high lift and long duration camshaft. The BMW is powered by a 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine. It is twin-turbocharged with a dual-cone intake kit Read More

BMW M6 vs. Audi RS7 Drag Race

April 23rd, 2015

In this video, these two “Bahn-Burners” are holding nothing back in a close 1/4-mile run. For decades the BMW M-Sport moniker has been synonymous with outstanding performance but as of late, Audi has also carved out a niche of its own. The BMW is an M6 Grand Coupe and the Audi is an RS7 Sportback. Let’s take a closer look. The Grand Coupe is amply equipped with a 560-horsepower 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1-seconds. The RS7 Sportback features a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 that also makes 560-horsepower. It is Read More

BMW M5 Vs. Dodge Charger Hellcat

April 17th, 2015

What would happen if a luxury sedan like an E39 (1998-2003) BMW 5-Series went up against the almighty 707-horsepower Dodge Charger Hellcat in a rolling drag race? That depends upon whether or not the BMW is an M-Sport with a lighter turbocharged 3.2-liter six-cylinder engine from a M3 Coupe. I am not sure what kind of tuning was necessary to push the M5 past the Hellcat in terms of performance horsepower output. Whatever modifications have been performed on this opulent European four-door, they prove more than adequate to dispense of this Mopar, in short order. I would like to see this Read More
