Track Tested – Nissan GT-R vs. Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R

September 22nd, 2017

There’s more at stake in this track battle than bragging rights. Nissan has been producing the GT-R for more than a decade. Now, it must defend its very name from a powerful upstart and a different kind of GT R. The 10-year-old Nissan GT-R has built quite a reputation for itself. It has become a fearsome competitor on both street and track, and is a bargain (at $105 – $130K) when compared with other supercars of its ilk. It is powered by a twin turbocharged 3.8-liter V6. In factory trim, it makes approximately 565hp and accelerates from 0 to 60 Read More

September 9th, 2017

Warning: The sights and sounds captured in this eleven-minute video may cause feelings of false euphoria. Sports car enthusiasts may feel as though they have been transported to some sort of hypercar heaven. Watch at your own risk. As majestic as the background of this video appears, the most stunning elements are found in rolling stock. Nestled at the bottom of a beautiful mountain range, hundreds-of-millions of dollars worth of automobiles have gathered on a deserted airstrip. These are not trailer queens with no mileage on the odometer; these cars are meant to be driven – and driven hard. Drag Read More

TX2K17 – Taking it to the Streets

August 29th, 2017

How do you kill some down-time when you are attending the TX2K17 event in Houston? Grab several hundred of your closest friends in fast cars (on bikes, too) and scamper across the border (into Mexico) for some street (roll) racing. Take a look! First up is a supercharged Honda S2000 in a roll race with a Nissan GT-R. The GT-R jumped out on him and never looked back. The S2000 lived to race another day. This time it’s against a Camaro with unknown modifications. The Honda wins this one – handily. Next, we have a pair of Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Read More

Battle for Germany – Mercedes-Benz vs. Porsche

August 28th, 2017

Who wouldn’t want to be tasked with determining which of these two high-performance German sports cars is the absolute best? A road test, a track run, and finally an all out drag race will provide the data used to arrive at which of these awesome rides is superior. The first entry is the stunning Mercedes-Benz AMG GT.

750WHP Chevy SS Trolls the Streets

July 28th, 2017

Hitting the strip on Saturday night in this Chevy SS is roughly the equivalent of cruising around on the street in a NASCAR racer. Advantages of this car include air conditioning, entertainment devices, and plush seating. It just don’t get no better than that! With the ability to put 750hp to the rear wheels, this sedan sounds amazing. It’s off to the interstate (of Mexico) for some roll racing action. There’s a reason that they write songs about little red Corvettes and if you roll alongside one, you’d best be ready to put the pedal to the metal. This little Read More

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

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

This may be the most impressive Mercedes-Benz that you will ever lay ears on! Sure, it looks like an executive crossover SUV but when the throttle cracks open, this black beauty sounds like a race car!
