Porsche 918 Launch Control and Drag Racing

July 27th, 2015

This is high profile, 1/2-mile roll racing on a closed airstrip. In attendance are such supercars as the Koenigsegg Agera and the usual Ferraris and Lamborghinis but the standout proves to be an 887hp Porsche 918. The German powerhouse proves to be too much for most competitors as he blasts out of the hole and rockets down the course. The Porsche 918 is part of the new generation of hybrid powered supercars. From the factory it boasts a 4.6-liter V8 gasoline engine with direct fuel injection. It not only makes 887hp @ 8600 RPM but also produces 944-lb.-ft. of torque Read More

2100HP TT Lamborghini Huracan Busts 200MPH

July 13th, 2015

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

McLaren 650S VS Lamborghini Aventador

July 10th, 2015

This video, which was recorded on a closed airstrip, depicts a McLaren 650S going head to head with a Lamborghini Aventador. This is roll racing between two of the premier supercars of the day. While the Lamborghini looks pretty menacing in all black, we know that the 650S is also a predator of astronomical proportions. McLaren calls the 650S an entry level car, and it costs only a shade over a quarter-million-dollars. It is equipped with a 3.8-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine that produces 641hp, mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. Zero to sixty can be achieved in less Read More

200+ MPH at 2015 Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack

June 30th, 2015

Shiny Lamborghinis, Nissan GT-Rs, Porsche 918s, Corvettes, Camaros, and other exotic street cars provided a fresh new wrinkle at the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC). This video portrays bits from this past weekends second running of the PPIHC Airstrip Attack, sponsored by the Revvolution Modified Lifestyle and Shift-S3ctor, as these awesome street machines blast down dual half-mile airstrips in a unmitigated contest of speed and driving prowess. Twin turbo was the obvious theme of the event so, of course, the Lamborghini “fleet” from Underground Racing was in attendance. The GT-R contingent was also “stretching their legs” in the Read More

Twin Turbo Viper – King of the Streets?

June 25th, 2015

Congratulations to Andy N. and the gang at D3 Performance Engineering for a win in the Rear-Wheel Drive Class at the 2015 Texas Invitational Automotive Airfield Exhibition. Andy also campaigned his twin turbocharged Viper successfully in the King of the Streets Class, defeating a couple of turbocharged Underground Lamborghinis and making it to the finals before falling to the AMS Performance Nissan GT-R. Andy’s Dodge Viper is powered by a 540-cubic-inch Gentry Performance engine with twin 76-millimeter turbochargers slamming air down its gullet. With the boost turned down to 25 psi, horsepower is estimated at 1,750, with a ceiling of Read More

2000HP GT-R vs. 2000HP Lamborghini

June 24th, 2015

Maybe you have heard of a little performance outfitter from Oberlin, Ohio, called Switzer Performance. Here is a video that depicts their flagship Goliath GT-R in head to head drag racing (and roll racing) against some pretty stout competition. Porsche, Nissan, Chevrolet, and Lamborghini all roll out to challenge Goliath. The GoPro mounted on the right front fender of the GT-R catches all the up-close action (does that hood make anyone else as nervous as it does me?) The Switzer Goliath package includes an engine and transmission rebuild, driveline and suspension upgrades, twin turbochargers, specially made manifolds and intercoolers, and Read More

2,000HP AMS GT-R King of the Streets

June 18th, 2015

For the second time in as many years,  the AMS GT-R has defeated all challengers at the event which many driving enthusiasts believe is the epitome of roll racing; the Texas Invitational Automotive Airfield Exhibition. Amid a field that includes several twin-turbocharged Lamborghinis and a TT-Dodge Viper, the AMS Performance built Nissan GT-R endures to the end in some very close heads up roll racing. The AMS GT-R is equipped with a fresh Alpha 4.0-liter all-aluminum big-bore engine block and a pair of Alpha CNC ported cylinder heads. A full Alpha exhaust system, specially tuned Alpha Omega turbo kit (complete 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

Lamborghini Huracan vs LP570 Super Trofeo on the Dyno

June 6th, 2015

While the Lamborghini Hurcan has many significant advantages over it’s predecessor, the Gallardo, including more power from the 5.2L V10, a 7 speed dual clutch transmission along with dynamic steering and updated launch control systems, we thought it would be interesting to compare it against the baddest and most extreme Gallardo produced, the LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale. Only 150 of the Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale’s were produced and while they were rated at 570HP, there were rumors that the car was making more power.  That additional power combined with a host of weight saving carbon fiber parts and an even faster shifting 6 speed e-gear transmission Read More

Lamborghini Battle: Aventador vs. Huracan

May 22nd, 2015

Talk about a running of the bulls; these two Italian supercars not only represent Lamborghini but they also represent approximately $650,000 in rolling stock. The Lamborghini brand has always been tied to famous fighting bulls, with most models named after bulls that have performed particularly valiantly in the ring. Aventador fought in the rings of Saragossa, Spain in 1993 and Huracan fought in 1879. Huracan is also the Mayan word for the god of wind, storm, and fire. The Aventador LP 700-4 boasts a 6.5-liter V12 engine (690HP) and a 7-speed semi-automatic transmission. The MSRP is around $400,000. The Huracan Read More
