Giant Killer – 670HP Turbo K20 Honda Civic

August 4th, 2016

This little import doesn’t make a lot of noise but it does carry a big stick. Never mind that this Honda looks like it’s missing a few panels, it is wreaking havoc on the streets (of Mexico I’m certain), and taking no prisoners. Here is a dyno test and some street (roll) racing action that will have you wondering just how high this four-banger can rev. The tiny Civic first tangles with a Ferrari 458 and make him look foolish. Next, he jumps on a turbocharged S2000 and a modified GT-R and puts both their lights out, respectfully. Then he Read More

This is roll racing action that borders on the fringe of the supernatural!

To witness both these luxurious racers at the same time is enough to take one’s breath away. Take a gander at this high-tone action. Is there no substitute for cubic-inches? Hmm, let’s see. The McLaren is a British by-product that utilizes a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 to irk out 666hp and 516 lb.-ft. of torque. It can blast from 0 to 60 Read More

In the words of a famous sugary soft drink character: “Oh, yeah!”  This clip brings us a plethora of exotic beauties from faraway places. This is an event crowded with an unbelievable field of high-end Italian and German sports machines, including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Porsches. You really don’t want to miss this action! In Superseries 1, the Lamborghini Aventador and Huracan square-off for some head-to-head dig action. Both cars are using launch control; therefore they leave the line at precisely the same instant.

This skilled videographer has managed to capture some very competitive head-to-head roll racing on a closed airstrip.
