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

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

Thin Mint – 6-Second Mustang

October 11th, 2017

This brilliantly hued Mustang is much more than just a pretty face. It manages to post consistent 6-second elapsed times and win races in the process. To answer the obvious question: The paint job is a mixture of a seventies Ford Mustang Mach 1 color and (of all things) an Aston Martin shade. I’m not sure whether I like it or not but it is certainly unique. I definitely like what has been done under the hood. The best thing that can happen to a small coupe is a huge engine. The Thin Mint has a 5.4-liter modular unit from 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
