Ferrari 458 Speciale vs. Tesla S P85D + Donuts!

June 11th, 2015

This clip portrays an epic battle between the most powerful all-electric production vehicle ever and an elite internal combustion powered Italian supercar. It comes to you from the EuroSpeedWay Lausitzring in Germany. Car number one, a Tesla S P85D, gets the initial hole-shot on car number two, a Ferrari 458 Speciale. After that, the Ferrari flexes its proverbial muscles and runs away with the contest. Then the 458 does something that the all-wheel drive Tesla could never do; it cuts some radical donuts smoking the rear tires in the process. The Speciale is outfitted with a 4.5-liter V8 engine that Read More

C7 Z06 Vette vs. Lamborghini Huracan

June 10th, 2015

What is this? A humble Chevrolet that can hang in there with the legendary Italian supercar Lamborghini? It would seem to be the case in this video. This is a close one that takes place on an abandoned air-strip. The rear-wheel drive Z06 gets pretty “squirrely” during the warm-up pass, leading one to believe that it could have a problem against the all-wheel drive Huracan. Luckily this is a rolling race, so the hole shot is removed from the equation. The Chevy crosses the stripe first but the Lambo puts up a higher trap speed (151.4 mph to 150.4 mph). Read More

Real Street 1,400HP Toyota Supra vs. the World

June 9th, 2015

Take a look at Geo’s Toyota Supra as he campaigns in the Street Car Class of the Street Car Takeover at Orlando Speed World in – guess where? – Orlando, Florida. This video features great heads-up action between some of the fastest “run-what-cha’-brung” cars that you will ever see. This Supra is taking on Mustangs and Camaros all day. Still, Geo manages to lay down a 1/4-mile pass of 8.32-seconds @ 172.47 mph, before getting robbed by the timing equipment in the finals. Oh well, better luck next time. Geo’s Supra is equipped with a 3.4-liter V6 Toyota engine and Read More

1,325HP GT-R vs. Porsche 918 Spyder

June 8th, 2015

Two of the most prominent supercars on the planet square-off in this epic battle of speed and driving technique. This clip provides video evidence than a $100k supercar can tangle with a $1-million supercar and come out on top. Although the Nissan has been drastically modified (probably at least an additional $50k), many would consider it the underdog in any race that includes the legendary high-performance-hybrid Porsche 918 – not so fast! The Porsche 918 Spyder utilizes a mid-mounted 4.6-liter V8 internal combustion engine and a series of lithium-ion battery powered electric motors to generate 887-horsepower and accomplish a stunning Read More

2400HP Twin Turbo Corvette

June 5th, 2015

Every once in a great while I see a car that inspires me to build a faster car and to be a better driver. The C7 Chevrolet Corvette in this video is just such a car. This nightmare on wheels is built and campaigned by Northshore Speed Shop (Slidell, Louisiana) in conjunction with D3 Performance Engineering (Houston, Texas). Our videographer caught this monster, called the “Devil-‘Vette”, on the streets of Texas during the TX2K15 gathering, last month. What you will see is a rolling start, followed by bone chilling, head snapping, death defying acceleration. Powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine Read More

200 MPH Street Race: Audi R8 vs. Nissan GT-R

June 4th, 2015

This is a real battle of the big boys. Here is another clip from the MRL, featuring a 1500hp 2010 Audi R8 and a very potent Nissan GT-R in a rolling race on the streets. Both drivers are somewhat close mouthed about their respective steeds but, as they say, “it will all come out in the wash”. The R8 seems to take the initial advantage but it proves fleeting as the mighty GT-R powers past and blasts to over 200 mph, seriously energizing the driver. The powerful Nissan is built around a 4.1-liter Sonny Bryant drag racing engine with twin Read More

Late Model Corvette Street Racing

June 3rd, 2015

It is a Corvette-fest down south of the border, in the sunny Mexico Racing League. Watch as these late model Z06s, ZR1s, and GSs do battle on the streets of Old Mexico (Yeah). The order of the day is rolling starts and awesome horsepower as these drivers “let it all hang out” displaying monstrous cubic inches, heavy-breathing superchargers, and volatile nitrous oxide injections. Your ride-along car is a Yellow, late model, Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, known as “The Banana”. Despite packing a huge punch (650HP) in factory trim, this ‘Vette is equipped with upgraded cylinder heads and camshaft, a Magnuson heat Read More

Turbocharged Minivan Edges GT-R and Viper in the 1/4-Mile

June 2nd, 2015

What would you do with a broken or abandoned all-wheel drive 1993 Eagle Summit minivan? How about doing what one New Englander did – throwing in a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4G63 four-cylinder engine and heading for the drag strip. After that, see if you can get paired up with a couple of iconic performance machines, like the Nissan GT-R and the Dodge Viper. That’s right Godzilla and the legendary Snake. While the Eagle Summit minivan (manufactured by Mitsubishi) is not known for performance prowess (neither is any other minivan, for that matter), it is moderately light and the four-wheel drivetrain hooks Read More

Dodge Charger Hellcat vs. LS1 Mustang

June 1st, 2015

There ain’t anything that makes my Monday like some street racing from the Lone Star State. Unfortunately, for the owner of this (Chevy LS1 powered) Mustang Foxbody, he is about to get introduced to Mom’s grocery-getter. Mom’s car is a bone-stock bright yellow sedan with street tires. So, I can only imagine how distraught the Ford driver must feel, after swapping the stock motor for a much improved Bowtie engine then replacing the stock rear-end for what appears to be a narrowed Ford 9-inch (with some fat rubber) and trailering his ride to an industrial park deep into the night, Read More
