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

New Mexico Gang Style Street Racing

July 6th, 2015

What do you get when you pit four elite level forced air induction street racing machines against one another on the thoroughfares of New Mexico? You get cops, controversy, and tons of speed. You also get street racing – wild, wild, West style. Check out this feature video. First things first; the Corvette is running a supercharged 416-cubic-inch stroker motor with a 200 shot of nitrous. The owner/operator claims a dyno-certified 1,101hp and he is riding on Mickey Thompson E/T Streets. Next is an Alpha prepared Nissan GT-R. These cars are always ready for just about anything. He is also 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

Drag Racing Tesla S P85D vs. BMW M4

April 10th, 2015

Far be it from us to condone street racing under any circumstances, but check out this rolling drag race between an all-American Tesla electric S P85D and the latest BMW M4. The heavier Tesla sedan may have met its match in a rolling race with the sporty M4 coupe, as the BMW gains a slight lead at the start. Nope, despite the M4 grabbing the early lead, the more powerful S P85D pulls to the forefront and stays there for the duration. The BMW turns out to be no match for the Tesla with 691-horsepower and totally-electric “insane-mode” that delivers Read More

Bugatti Veyron Plays With BMW M3

March 6th, 2015

Peel your eyelids back and take a look at this 1200-hp Bugatti Veyron as it gives this late model BMW the hole shot, then comes back to garner a decisive victory in the eighth-mile. This one-sided affair takes place at an airstrip and features Dutch race driver Ho-Pin Tung in a BMW M3. Unfortunately for the Dutchman, the French made Bugatti was more than capable of giving the lead and then taking it away. The BMW M3 (particularly this European version) can hold its own in most contests of speed, with a 415-horsepower 4.0-liter V8 and slick-shifting transmission (whether you Read More

The BMW M4 used it’s Launch control system and got the jump from the start but the Tesla quickly took over leaving the M4 behind by a few cars.   On the top end the race evened out as the Tesla ran out of steam and and hit it’s top speed allowing the M4 to quickly catch up. This BMW M4 is no slouch running Read More
