Monster Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE63S – 200+ KM/H Quarter-Mile

March 11th, 2017




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! For decades Mercedes-Benz has been quietly working away in their AMG facility to produce some of the most outlandish, high-quality hand-made, production hot rods ever to come out of Europe. Each Mercedes-Benz AMG vehicle is equipped with a totally hand crafted engine that is autographed by the expert builder. These cars are the best-of-the-best. The AMG GLE 63S has the stance of a predatory Read More






First Look – Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE

March 7th, 2017




What? No 2018 Camaro Z28? What will we do? How will Chevy enthusiasts survive? Very well indeed, I presume. Allow me to attempt an explanation as General Motors has provided. There has been no sign of a Z28 version of the Camaro for 2018 because the ZL1 ILE will fill its spot in this year’s lineup. Does this mean that the Z28 is gone for good? Absolutely not, according to sources inside GM. So, why can’t the ZL1 1LE simply be adorned with the Z28 badge? In a word: history. You see, the Z28 Camaro has always been a naturally Read More






Tesla P100D Ludicrous Testing 0-60 MPH vs Battery State of Charge from 10% to 100%

March 5th, 2017




Fact or Fiction?  Teslas get slower as their battery is depleted. One of the most common comments on our Tesla videos is related to performance losses as the battery state of charge in the Tesla goes down.   Since we typically don’t run our Tesla’s charge down the low levels we never really experience noticeable performance losses.  We have run multiple 0-60 tests as well as 1/4 mile runs back to back with many different Teslas and the times have always been relatively consistent. In the video below we test the Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous from 0-60 MPH as well as measure Read More






3000HP Corvette ZR1 – World Record Eighth-Mile

March 3rd, 2017




Whoa! Check out this record breaking 1/8-mile, radial tire pass. Greetings drag racing enthusiasts. Say hello to Mark Woodriff and his amazing twin-turbo ZR1 Corvette. This car laid down an 1/8-mile pass with an ET of 3.83-seconds @ 212.69 mph. That is good enough to set a new World Record for a radial tire car in the 1/8-mile. It is hard to believe that this car, with a Larry Jeffers built front half, was badly wrecked only 2-weeks prior to this video being produced. The car is powered by a Sonny’s (Leonard) Racing, 522 cubic-inch, big block engine with a Read More






$3-Million Street Race – Porsche vs Ferrari

February 23rd, 2017




Hello race fans and drag racing aficionados in particular. Meet Leo from Performance HQ. Leo has a problem of which any car enthusiast would be envious. He owns these two amazing exotic automobiles and he doesn’t know which one is fastest. Let’s take a look as he tries to find out. First of all, I know that the race is taking place at the San Antonio Raceway, but it has all the elements of a street race. Theirs is lots of good natured trash talking, some friendly wagering, and a general lack of traction out of the hole. The first Read More






Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous Plus Testing on a Mustang Dyno

February 20th, 2017




It’s been about 2 years since we dyno tested our Tesla Model S P85D so we figured it was time to head back to see Jack at HPLogic to see how much power our new Model S P100D with Ludicrous Plus is making. The first few tests were coming in pretty low due to the car pulling back power while throwing up some error codes.  The Tesla’s sensors were detecting that the car was not actually moving while the wheels were spinning, causing the car to stop accelerating on the dyno.  The first result was around 450 ft lbs of torque. Read More






Huracan vs. GT-R – Street Rolls

February 14th, 2017




Hello race fans and street racing aficionados and welcome to an action packed night of roll racing on the streets of Phoenix (Mexico). This is an area where flat geography and low humidity make for ideal racing conditions. Let’s take a look and see what happens when some of the baddest supercars on the planet roll out on the same strip of highway. If you like imports then you’ll love this video. It has a trio of modified Nissan GT-R coupes, a Lamborghini Huracan, an AMG Mercedes-Benz, and even a stout Honda Civic (near the end). The feature car is Read More






Blown Mafia

February 8th, 2017




It seems that everywhere I go, racers are partial to one of the big three power-adders. Some like turbochargers, others love superchargers, and some are loyal to nitrous injection systems. That got me to thinking: why can’t a guy have a combination of two or even all three? It seems that I am not the only sicko following this train of thought. Bradley Gray, owner of Blown Mafia, is in the habit of stacking power-adders and covering them in chrome. All these vehicles run and drive but (the bad news is that) Bradley is not into racing them. He likes Read More






Street Racing Compilation – Roll and Dig

February 8th, 2017




If you like racing on the streets (of Mexico); you will love this video! I almost laughed when I saw a turbocharged Volkswagen Corrado at the outset of this production – then the VW whipped a couple of Corvettes and a Camaro. The Sketchy Vert WS6 Trans Am was a little more than he bargained for but most street racers find that to be the case, All in all, this was not a bad night of roll racing for a four-banger VW. From there, it’s on to some dig racing. There are some pretty average rides to begin the night 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
