293 MPH Street Legal Ford GT

October 31st, 2017

While the standing mile pass that you will see on this video is not Guinness certified, it is no less impressive. This is the BADD GT. It is owned and prepared by Johnny Bohmer, of Performance Power Racing (South Florida) and it is the Guinness certified owner of the standing mile top-speed world record (283 mph) set in 2012. As you can see, Richard Rawlings (Gas Monkey Garage) is also a major sponsor of the BADD GT. This car is registered in the state of Florida and is driven on the street – daily. This is a great looking car Read More

Import vs. Domestic – Chevy, DSM, and Ford

October 28th, 2017

The battle between imported and domestic automobiles continues to rage on the streets of old Mexico. It all began about the time that the first imported automobiles began disembarking in the ports of the U.S. and Canada and it is alive and well in 2017. Our first entrant is racing a Chevrolet 1500 Sportside pickup. It is well equipped with a 6.0-liter LS engine that has been outfitted with a supercharger and a kit of nitrous. Entrant number two is piloting a Ford Mustang Cobra Terminator Edition with a 3.4-liter Whipple supercharger, full bolt-ons, and a performance tuner. Power output Read More

2000HP Mustang Drop-Top

October 27th, 2017

In a sea of hopped-up, high-performance street cars, we spotted this Mustang convertible. You just don’t see that many fast drop-tops so, we decided to take a closer look. The venue is Street Car Takeover St. Louis and the Class is Small Tire. This little red Mustang is powered by a 400 cubic-inch small block with an 85-millimeter turbocharger. Power output is estimated at 2,000hp. Round One brings about a touch of Mustang on Mustang fun. Our feature car cuts the light on the competition and gaps him easily. Round Two winds up being the semi-final round and a solo Read More

Texas Invitational – GT-R vs. Huracan

October 26th, 2017

It doesn’t get any better than this! Every year the Texas Invitational draws 2,000+hp cars the way stink draws flies. As usual, this year’s event is better than the last and not quite as good as the next. The two cars featured in this video are a perfect example of the competition at this event that has become the high-water mark for radically modified supercars crushing the quarter-mile, half-mile, and the mile. The first is a little Japanese coupe known as Godzilla. This particular version of the Nissan GT-R is prepared and campaigned by T1 Racing Development. The engine has Read More

200 MPH Street Hits – Lamborghini Centenario

October 25th, 2017

This has got to be the most awesome sounding Lamborghini ever! The $2.5-million Lamborghini Centenario is lighter and more powerful than the Aventador SV. The amazing exhaust notes that you will hear in this video are created by a naturally aspirated, over-square, 60-degree, V12 engine. It makes 760hp and propels the Centenario from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.7-seconds. Power is distributed to the all-wheel drivetrain via a 7-speed, dual-clutch, automated manual transmission. This clip is shot from a souped-up (575+hp) Jaguar F-Type SVR. For obvious reasons, the identity of the Centenario’s owner/operator is not divulged but he has Read More

Tesla Invests in Muscle Cars

October 19th, 2017

In a recent interview (parody) with Elon Musk of Tesla, a reporter asked if the automaker was indeed buying up muscle cars and hot rods around the suburban Atlanta (Georgia) area. Musk smiled wryly and explained to the journalist that he was mistaken. While it has been widely reported that Tesla has come to own many muscle cars in and around the 303; these reports are largely limited to a single P100D and an event called Street Car Takeover Atlanta. It would seem that an all-electric and gutted (it still weighs in at nearly two-and-a-half tons) Tesla P100D had thoroughly Read More

Turbo Tahoe Tire Toaster

October 17th, 2017

This is one bad grocery-getter. Shane Cook decided to take his full-bodied Chevrolet Tahoe and transform it into a 9-second (@ 135 – 140 mph) tire smoking monster. This clip takes us from the dyno room (857whp and 832 lb.-ft. of torque) to the street and finally to the drag strip. Once Shane gets the Tahoe to the strip, he whips up on as many Camaros and Mustangs as he can find. The Chuck Wagon (Cook’s) is equipped with a 5.3-liter engine that has been upgraded with a pair of ported 862 cylinder heads, a Tick Performance camshaft, and a Read More

1964 GTO – Street Car Takeover

October 13th, 2017

With the memory of their deceased friend Mike as inspiration, this loyal group of friends and racing enthusiasts prepared this 1964 Pontiac GTO for the drag strip. After torqueing every last bolt and buckling Mike’s urn and ashes into the front seat, they set off for Tucson and the Street Car Takeover. Little did they know what a dramatic weekend of racing action was in store. The Goat was a one-owner car, purchased new by Mike’s dad. This band of compadres rebuilt the muscle car with a 428 Pontiac stroker kit (bored over to 467 cubic-inches). It has all the Read More

NA Viper Incinerates the Interstate

October 9th, 2017

Who says you have to have a power adder to win on the street? Everybody has got them these days. Turbochargers, superchargers, and nitrous – some racers even stack them just for good measure. I love them (and run them myself) but are they a must have? What happens when a good old boy decides to go with a whole mountain of naturally aspirated (NA) cubic inches in a high performance street beast? In this case, they call it SneakySnake. It’s an unassuming Dodge Viper (as unassuming as a Viper can be) and it is out to prove a point Read More

1160HP Koenigsegg Agera RS 0-400-0

October 6th, 2017

In proving that their product is up to the 0-400-0 challenge, Swedish automaker Koenigsegg gained exclusive access to an airstrip (and the largest solar farm in Scandanavia) in Vandel, Denmark. This was done for the sole purpose of testing their newly updated supercar, the Agera RS, in a 0-400-0 timed trial. This timed trial is not just for kicks and giggles. Christian von Koenigsegg, not being the type of individual to accept anything less than excellence, wanted to see the Agera RS best the world record 0-400-0 time of 41.96-seconds, set by Juan Pablo Montoya in a Bugatti Chiron (September Read More
