If you want to race in the Pro Street Class of the National Hot Rod Diesel Association (NHRDA), then you are going to need to make some pretty prolific modifications to any stock vehicle. This heirloom 1969 C10 pickup (the bed is from a 1995 model) has certainly undergone just such a mutation: the cab and cockpit are primarily stock, as they were when Brett Deutsch’s (the current owner) grandpa turned it over to him at the tender age of 15. Brett wrestled his way through an assortment of small block Chevy power plants (including a supercharged 383-stroker) before he Read More
Press the PLAY button and say hello to what is being billed as the world’s first twin turbocharged Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4. This lime green beauty showed up at the Texas Invitational Automotive Airfield Exhibition presented by the Texas Speed Syndicate, all the way down in Houston, Texas. Then the gang at Underground Racing proceeded to show out – wrenching the X Package equipped Italian screamer to speeds of over 200mph. Right “out of the box” the Huracan is no trifling street car. It is outfitted with a 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 602hp. It is an all-wheel drive, 2-passenger, mid-engine Read More
Alpha Performance, based in Chicago, Illinois, has done it again. You may recall that their high-powered numero-uno R35 GT-R already won the title “King of the Streets” at the recent Texas Invitational, hosted by the Texas Speed Syndicate. Since then, they have been busy trying their best to blow the engine up in this potent Nissan. Now any racer knows that stock engines are not built to withstand the rigors of forced air induction over long periods of time – especially when output levels reach over 2,000hp. Normally these extreme output levels would require an engine refresh (if not replacement) Read More
The Koenigsegg One:1 (pronounced one-to-one) is referred to as a “mega-car” instead of a supercar. In this clip, from the VMAX 200 Hypermax event near London, England, you will observe it taking on supercars from all over the globe and winning at speeds of around 225 mph. While it is not the quickest from the line, its winning power-to-weight-ratio eventually overcomes most competitors near the quarter-mile mark. As the name implies, this mega-car is the only production car in existence to boast one megawatt of horsepower. A megawatt of power indicates that the One:1 produces one pferdestarke (.986 hp) per Read More
Two things about the Bay area: it is very windy there most of the time and they know how to host a spectacular supercar event. The Bay Area Racing Channel presents this awesome video (if you are a Lamborghini fan) of a Huracan absolutely annihilating a SRT Viper T/A. In all fairness the Viper never seems to gain traction in the right lane, but that is all part of drag racing, right? Despite similar horsepower ratings between the two cars (610 for the Huracan and 640 for the Viper), the Lambo appears to dominate this contest. Potential advantages for the Read More
Take a gander at this Swedish supercar as it tows the line against a Ferrari LaFerrari, a Porsche 918 Spyder, and finally against a Ferrari 458 Speciale. The VMAX200 Hypermax, held on a private runway near London, England, is a top speed driving event geared towards the world’s most exotic automobiles. Over a billion dollars worth of rolling-stock regularly participates in this contest that tries the limitations of sports cars such as the McLaren P1 and the Koenigsegg CCX, as well as various Bugatti, Ferrari, Porsche, and Lamborghini models. The Koenigsegg Agera N, shown in this video, has been modified from stock. It features Read More

An AMS upgraded Nissan GT-R easily broke all current Nissan GT-R (R35) drag racing records by running a 9.9 @ 146.96 MPH at the TX2K10 event at Lonestar Motorsports Park in Sealy, Texas. While there have been many advances and battles for the most powerful GT-Rs on the dyno, most haven’t been able to back up the dyno numbers at the track. Only until recently have SSP (10.2 @ 136 MPH) and now AMS been able to put down some amazing real world performance numbers for the GT-R. This GT-R is running upgraded stock turbochargers spiking to 28 psi and holding Read More
