Scary Street Battle – BMW vs. Cadillac

October 31st, 2017

Happy Halloween! I hope you enjoy this back and forth street (roll) racing battle between two, evenly matched, high-end street machines. Both of these cars have been modified dramatically to improve engine performance. I wouldn’t consider it a slanderous statement to say that BMW is not known for street racing prowess. That is precisely what makes this BMW 135i Coupe a great choice for a street sleeper. The slick looking Beemer has been upgraded with a Precision 6466 turbocharger and a DOCRace turbo kit, tuned by EMP Performance. Depending upon the boost setting, it is capable of producing a bit Read More

McLaren 720S Dyno Results and Graphs

October 31st, 2017

Many have been wondering how the McLaren 720S can be so fast running 9.9 in the 1/4 mile with just 710 horsepower as per McLaren’s specifications for it’s latest supercar. We take a trip with the McLaren 720S over to a dyno to see just how much horsepower and torque the amazingly fast supercar makes from it’s 4.0L twin turbocharged V8. Since different dynos can report different numbers, we also dyno a McLaren MP4-12C to compare power numbers between the two cars.

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

Porsche 991 Turbo S Quarter-Mile Record

October 21st, 2017

In proving their continued commitment to building the fastest cars on the planet, EKanoo Racing (from the beautiful Kingdom of Bahrain) has inked themselves a new entry in the world record book of quarter-mile drag racing. With a lot of help from ESMotor (also of the Kingdom of Bahrain), these skilled racing aficionados managed to accomplish what no one ever had – on 1320-feet of asphalt. They built and raced a Porsche 991 Turbo S from a standing start through the trap in 8.993-seconds at a top speed of 160.7 mph. What a way to kick-off the new racing season 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

Muscle Car Madness

October 18th, 2017

You may call it cars gone wild, muscle car madness, or insanity on wheels but it won’t change the fact that this video makes fantasy come to life. Many of us remember the crazy toy cars of our Mattel Hot Wheels collections. With their giant chrome engines, protruding through the hood and towering above the roof line, these tiny die cast creations inspired some of us to build our first hot rods. The cars (and trucks) in this video closely resemble the shiny (and radically modified) toys that we played with as children – only they are very real. Each Read More
