Check out Tesla’s latest software update for the Model X which enables a hidden easter egg feature that is enabled by entering in a “secret” code. After putting in the code, leaving the car and pressing the lock button the key fob, the Tesla Model X puts on quite the show with synchronized flashing lights, music and falcon wing door dances. Check out the video below!
There is something particularly satisfying about building a car that can perform on the street without looking like it. This is called a “street sleeper” and it has been called a motorized version of the pool hustler. This video gives us a look at 10 of the baddest and most surprising street sleepers of 2016. Check out this turbocharged Honda Civic. With a built K20 and a massive turbocharger, this sub compact is knocking off Lamborghinis on the street. The turbo Silverado looks factory but don’t press your luck with this single cab pickup. With a big turbo and a Read More
This video features at least two things that I hold near and dear: street racing and the beautiful state of North Carolina. The Tar Heel State has always held a special place in my heart, with its densely wooded mountains in the west and stunning beaches in the east, but experiencing the Tail of the Dragon (on my modified Harley Davidson Road King bagger) took it to a whole different level. Between that, some wonderful white whiskey (for medicinal purposes and in moderation), and some of the friendliest folks on earth, I can’t help but go back time and time Read More

What would you do for fun if you lived in a place where the roads were flat and straight – as far as the eye could see? Sounds like a street racer’s paradise to me. Why not buy a couple of the most elite factory supercars on the planet and line them up for some dig racing action? That’s what I want for Christmas, Santa! Featured in this video are the Nissan GT-R and the Lamborghini Huracan. The Nissan is configured with front-engine and all-wheel drive, while the Lamborghini rocks a mid-engine setup that can be had with standard rear-wheel Read More
The Red Demon is being billed as the World’s Fastest All-Wheel Drive Car and the World’s Fastest Diamond Star Motors (DSM) car. It is built and campaigned by Boostin Performance (BP) out of Hoffman Estates, Illinois. The BP team gets an opportunity to display their extraordinary brand of resiliency when the engine block literally splits in half during testing; pulling the main bearing studs out in the process. That’s about as broken as an engine block can get but this skilled crew ain’t quite ready to fly this Eagle back in the trailer yet. They work through the night and manage to Read More
The first production 2017 Ford GT rolled off the line today during a live FaceBook webcast from the factory in Canada. The all new Ford GT was painted in black with orange stripes and had the optional carbon fiber wheels, glossy carbon fiber exterior trim along with the Launch Control interior. There will only be 1,000 3rd generation Ford GTs produced over the next 4 years and the order dates for the first 500 were sent out earlier this week. We ended up with an order date of May 2017 which is just a few months away can’t wait to spec out, Read More
Anyone who has ever raced in a parking can attest to the fact that it can be treacherous. This track, on this weekend, was possibly one of the most dangerous that I have ever seen. First of all, the track was an eighth-mile uphill – couldn’t find a flat place in Houston, Texas? Next, the drag strip dead-headed into a convention center. What’s up with that? Drag cars have enough problems stopping (hence the parachute) so why throw salt in the wound by restricting the landing strip to an area the width of a four-lane road? Finally, traction was nonexistent Read More
This clip brings us a street battle (dig and roll racing) between a modified import coupe and a factory stock domestic sedan. These kinds of contests take place every day down Mexico way, where street racing is king. The rear-wheel drive Hyundai Genesis coupe is a mutated version of the powerful V8 powered Korean sedan of the same name. While it is offered with a 348hp V6, this car was equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo engine with an intercooler. It also has been upgraded with aftermarket parts like a high-performance tuner, a cold air intake setup, and a larger turbocharger. Read More
