New Lamborghini S – Test Track

June 16th, 2017

When Lamborghini introduced the Aventador in 2011, it set the world of high-performance sports cars on its ear. Less than a decade removed and the same Aventador was becoming a bit mundane. It was to be expected – with recent advances in speed and technology. Offerings from McLaren, Ferrari, Porsche, and Bugatti – just to name a few – have had the big Lamborghini floundering for a portion of the premium market share. Not being a car company to suffer in mediocrity, Lamborghini has recently introduced the all-new Aventador S; seen before your very eyes in this video. The S Read More

McLaren 720S – Track Testing

June 6th, 2017

Join professional race driver Steve Sutcliffe as he puts this British beauty through its paces on a closed track. From the 650S family of cars, this is the car rumored to be quicker than the P1. After driving the car to the track on some rough public (Italian) streets, Steve is rendered speechless as he challenges the 720S around steep corners and deep curves. The acceleration is blinding, the steering crisp and clean, and the braking is precise and effortless. No wonder our wheel-man is left without words. The 720S is equipped with an all-new 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine Read More

Drag Race – McLaren 540C vs Honda NSX vs Nissan GT-R

May 27th, 2017

If you trust the statistics, all the data points to the McLaren getting spanked handily in this short drag race. Both the Japanese supercars have more power and more torque than the British variant. Adding insult to injury – the McLaren is the only car in this elite field that is not all-wheel drive so, it also has less traction. Fortunately for us, the producers of this video decided to go ahead and run the race anyway. Sometimes things don’t work out as expected. The carbon-fiber tubbed McLaren is the lightest of the three cars and is equipped with a Read More

2017 Ford GT – Too Much Car for the Street?

May 26th, 2017

How absurd – too much car for the street? What kind of a question is that? The new 2017 Ford GT may be a bit too hot to handle for drivers who are only interested in getting from point A to point B but for a red-blooded performance enthusiast, there is no such thing as too much car. Let’s go to the riding review for the full story: In a package that is unabashedly billed as a street legal LeMans (winner) race car, the mid-engine, rear-wheel drive monster was only 3-years from sketch pad to track, making it a truly amazing Read More

POV – 9-Second McLaren 570S

May 18th, 2017

This video introduces us to what is officially the first McLaren 570S to ever post a 9-second quarter-mile elapsed time. That makes this British built supercar a world record holder of sorts. In my humble opinion, the McLaren 570S is a seriously amazing automobile, in factory trim. Each (entry level) mid-engine 570S that rolls off the assembly line (there are only about 4,000 produced annually) does so with a 502hp, 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged, V8 engine that also makes 443 lb.-ft. of torque. It comes with a sequential, 7-speed gearbox and it is rear-wheel drive. In stock trim, the 570S can accelerate Read More

Roll Racing on the Street – McLaren vs. Ferrari

April 15th, 2017

If high profile street racing is what you seek – this is it! How much better could it get than a McLaren 570S and a Ferrari 488GTB, engaged in a contest of speed and acceleration on the street? One thing is for certain; if you spot these two fine examples of automotive engineering on your local interstate, it will be a memorable trip. The McLaren 570S is marketed as an entry level supercar. It is less intense and expensive than other McLaren models. The monocoque, mid-engine coupe is equipped with a 3.8-liter V8 engine capable of producing 562hp and 443 Read More

Half-Mile Blowout – Lamborghini vs. Nissan

March 31st, 2017

Hello racing fans and welcome to the Rafael Hernandez Airport in sunny Puerto Rico. Today’s action is of the 1/2-mile variety and it is particularly outstanding. Some of the baddest cars and most capable performance firms are on hand to try and claim the top speed crown. Underground Racing (UR) is well represented by the star of the event – a black Lamborghini Superleggera, owned by Richard Fowler. As you know, the Superleggera is pretty potent in factory trim but Richard’s Lambo has been treated to the UR X-Package that bumps output up to the 2,000hp mark. Richard has already Read More

Track Testing the New Lamborghini Aventador S

February 4th, 2017

In an effort to keep pace in the ever evolving world of supercars, Lamborghini has introduced the all new Lamborghini Aventador S. Recent offerings from Ferrari and McLaren have made it necessary for Lamborghini to up the ante in the Aventador lineup. That brings us to the “S” version. In addition to an exterior face lift, the Aventador S also benefits from a more powerful engine, improved steering, and a universal controller that overlaps all of the car’s major components together for a much smoother and more refined driving experience. The test-driver refers to the new version S as a Read More

Audi vs. McLaren – Drag Race

October 10th, 2016

Here is a big-money brawl between two mass-produced supercars. For those who may watch this video and think that all cars of this caliber are the same, keep in mind that this is the baddest Audi on the menu (an R8 Plus Quattro S Tronic) and the most conservative McLaren (a 570S). Take a look. This contest will be a dig race between two cars with similar horsepower specs. The Audi is an all-wheel drive coupe and the McLaren is rear-wheel drive but the R8 outweighs the 570S by more than 400-pounds. With 610hp, the R8 bolts from 0 to Read More

Ultimate Exotic Car Showdown

October 3rd, 2016

This could be billed as the most complete showdown of supercars ever compiled – with a few exceptions. The Bugatti entry is noticeably absent, there’s no Nissan GT-R, the Corvette Z06 was overlooked, the Dodge Viper ACR is nowhere to be seen, and what about Tesla? One more honorable mention might be the Koenigsegg Agera but that’s probably advancing into a different realm of automobiles. Nevertheless, this list is quite impressive and the video will leave any car enthusiast feeling as if they need to climb into the cockpit. The backdrop is a sunny RAF airstrip somewhere in the United Kingdom. The Read More
