Street Beast Shootout – 1400WHP Viper vs 1100WHP 240SX

January 5th, 2017

Mention the words “Viper”, “GT-R”, and “street racing” to me and you will have my undivided attention. This video has all of those things and a whole lot more. Let’s get this (roll racing) party started with a contest between a 1,400whp Dodge Viper and an 8-second Nissan GT-R. The Gen V Viper and the Nisan GT-R are two of the baddest production vehicles to ever roll off an assembly line. Obviously the Viper in the video has undergone some extensive modifications; including a turbo setup. The Snake handles Godzilla easily and moves on to the next victim. You may Read More

GT-R Tackles Huracan on the Street

December 20th, 2016

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

2017 Audi R8 – Extended Test Drive

October 6th, 2016

Here’s another one of these great video installments for Motor Trend’s 2016 Best Driver’s Award. These guys use a ton of GoPro swag and produce some of the most extraordinary camera angles you’ve ever seen. Randy Pobst is back behind the wheel and once again, the track is the iconic Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway. Randy is as qualified as anyone to critique high performance automobiles and Laguna Seca is designed with a unique set of hair pins, corkscrews, and gut-wrenching elevation changes. Check out the hot lap action. It is truly breathtaking! This is an incredible car. The 2017 Audi Read More

Ultimate Exotic Car Showdown

October 3rd, 2016

This could be billed as the most complete showdown of supercars ever compiled – with a few exceptions. The Bugatti entry is noticeably absent, there’s no Nissan GT-R, the Corvette Z06 was overlooked, the Dodge Viper ACR is nowhere to be seen, and what about Tesla? One more honorable mention might be the Koenigsegg Agera but that’s probably advancing into a different realm of automobiles. Nevertheless, this list is quite impressive and the video will leave any car enthusiast feeling as if they need to climb into the cockpit. The backdrop is a sunny RAF airstrip somewhere in the United Kingdom. The Read More

New Half-Mile World Record

September 23rd, 2016

Underground Racing (UR) has scored again with their earth shaking X-Package. UR has taken the lead in developing turbocharged performance machines and, if this past weekend’s festivities are any indication, they aren’t planning on relinquishing their position any time soon. The backdrop is a closed airstrip during the ShiftS3ctor event in McMinnville, Oregon. All of the top players are on hand for this event, as you might expect, and world records are being broken all weekend. At the end of the event, Richard Fowler owned the new World Record in the 1/2-mile at 247.25 mph – that’s 7 mph faster Read More

205 MPH 1.4 Mile Huracan

June 14th, 2016

I love these ride-along videos. This is one such video in which an exquisite Lamborghini Huracan takes on a Ferrari 488GTB and posts a top speed of 205 mph in the 1.4 mile Hypermax IV event. This clip comes to us from the historic Bruntingthorpe Proving Grounds in the United Kingdom and features one of the most iconic supercars of the modern era. The “affordable” Huracan sells for around $200K and is equipped with a (mid-mounted) high-revving 5.2-liter V10 engine. It is offered in all-wheel (602hp) and rear-wheel (571hp) drive configurations. It has a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (no manual offered Read More

Battle of the Italians – Ferrari 488 GTB vs. Lamborghini Huracan

May 24th, 2016

This is the stuff that civil wars are fought over; which one is faster – the Lamborghini Huracan or the Ferrari 488GTB? Mama Mia! Let’s take a look and see. The Ferrari is making 661hp (at an amazing 8,000 RPM) using a 3.9-liter V8 engine. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3-seconds, has an adaptive suspension system, and a price tag of nearly $250K. In the other lane; the (all-wheel drive) Lambo is churning out 602hp with a 5.2-liter V10 engine. It has a 7-speed dual-clutch automated transmission, the capacity to accelerate from 0 to 60 Read More

World Record Quarter-Mile Pass for OBP Lambo

February 26th, 2016

The OB Prestige Auto Racing Team showed up at the drag strip and showed out by setting a new 1/4-mile world record (8.97-seconds @ 165.47 mph) for a Lamborghini Huracan. Just check out the time slip for yourself. This emerald green, all-wheel drive beauty rolls off the factory floor with some pretty impressive credentials but what Heffner Performance adds is nothing short of miraculous. They start by building the 5.2-liter V10 engine to the brink of being completely bullet poof, then add a twin turbo package and a MoTec engine controller. The 7-speed dual clutch automatic is then treated to Read More

Supercharged Lamborghini Huracan

November 19th, 2015

Momma always said, “Nobody likes a whiner” but Mom, there are times when a good whine can be quite pleasant. For instance, when this killer white Lamborghini Huracan rounds the bend and you hear a startling whine as he jams on the accelerator and plants the rubber to the pavement. That whine is from a Eaton TVS2300 roots type supercharger sitting atop a 5.2-liter V10 engine. The entire package is produced by VF Engineering from Anaheim, California. This Lambo is also equipped with a 6061 aluminum intake manifold with an internal bypass and high-flow dual throttle bodies with high-flow MAF Read More

November 18th, 2015

Underground Racing is on the cutting edge in turbocharged high-performance technology and they proved it again at the WannaGOFAST Texas 1/2-mile event in Sulpher Springs, Texas. This awesome looking twin-turbocharged Lamborghini Huracan (driven by KC Howeth) posted a world record-setting speed of 238.6 mph; besting the old record by nearly 4 mph! The previous record holder was Gidi Chamdi and he was also piloting an Underground Racing prepared Lamborghini when he set it. Gidi’s car is a Superlegarra and we know that he’ll be back shortly to carry out his next move in this high-speed battle of one-ups-manship. The Lime Read More
