Indy Nights – Street Racing Superheroes

August 29th, 2016

First of all, this is some serious street racing action. Second off, allow me to ask this question: If you come out of pocket for a Lamborghini, then get your lunch eaten by a Honda Civic, do you immediately head home and cry into your pillow? I ain’t trying to be disrespectful – just asking. If you find yourself in a similar predicament, you might want to go underground (Underground Racing, that is). So, here’s the extremely diverse lineup. There’s are a pair of Honda Civics with huge turbochargers and they are taking no prisoners. Then there is a 1JZ Read More

Honda Civic Traps 189 MPH at Pikes Peak

August 11th, 2016

The competitors are breaking the 200 mph barrier (on a regular basis) during this week’s 2016 Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack but who expects to see a Honda Civic that can turn 189 mph trap speeds?  The truth is that this is no ordinary Civic – but it is ninety-nine-percent Honda. Start with a run-of-the-mill, 2,300-pound hatchback Honda Civic. Now, snatch that four-cylinder mill out of there and replace it with a ultra smooth 3.5-liter V6 engine from a front wheel drive Honda Odyssey van. Before cramming it back under the hood, install a set of high-performance cylinder heads and camshafts Read More

759HP Lamborghini Centenario Hits the Street

August 10th, 2016

Marking what would be the 100th birthday of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, the Italian automaker has unveiled the latest in a long line of elite sports cars. It is never likely to see mass production and may even be a one-off proposition. Nevertheless, this 2017 Lamborghini Centenario (pronounced chin-ten-ario) slithered out of its storage bay and through the front gate of an Italian manufacturing facility, just in time for photographers to catch the action. Then it accelerated away and down the street. Whoa! What an exhaust note and this thing looks magnificent! For obvious aesthetic reasons (check out the video) and Read More

Quarter-Mile Pass – Lamborghini vs. Z06

July 28th, 2016

Advanced Modern Performance (Dallas, Texas) has built one heckuva Z06 Corvette. It’s so capable that it can claim the title of world’s fastest Z06 in the 1/4-mile with a 9.3-second pass. The question is; can it withstand this Underground Racing prepared Lamborghini? Let’s have a look. The Lambo seems to take the early advantage as the ‘Vette lags back coming out of the hole. Somehow, the Z06 comes back and lays down a 9.5-second pass and wins by 1/3-of a second. The Lambo had the fastest trap speed, posting a 173.58 to the Corvette’s 148.22. AMP is doing a tremendous Read More

9-Second Alpha 10 Huracan

July 18th, 2016

The staff at Alpha Performance has undertaken the task of trying to destroy their own Alpha 10 Huracan turbocharger kit – thus far with no success. First, they hit the road for the brutal 3,000-mile Gold Rush Rally; stopped by Pike’s Peak and ran the Tail of the Dragon. Through rigorous testing, the Alpha 10 kit performed without a hitch. Next, they went out to the drag strip and you can see the results here. The car ran consistent 9-second passes without fail. The Alpha 10 system utilizes the stock engine and requires only bolt-on installation. It features a pair Read More

First Glimpse – 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera

July 13th, 2016

Hot off the presses! Here is a first look at the latest and greatest new Italian supercar – projected for introduction later this year in Paris or Geneva (Auto Shows). This is the 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera taming the historic track at Nurburgring. When the experts really want to know what a car is capable of, they turn to this grueling 3.199-mile track that legendary F1 racer Jackie Stewart nicknamed “the Green Hell”. The 2018 Huracan Superleggera (meaning “super light”) seems up to the task with typical Lamborghini handling and performance. The Superleggera version is approximately 220-pounds lighter than the Read More

240 MPH Half-Mile World Record

June 20th, 2016

The world record for top speed in the standing half-mile has fallen. The driver who shattered the 238.6 mph mark (set last year by K.C. Howeth in Texas) Saturday is no rookie. Gidi Chamdi is the man-of-the-hour. He once held the record at 234 mph and I’ll give you odds that he won’t let his new “high-water” mark stand very long. Gidi’s car is a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. It has a built 5.2-liter V10 engine and an Underground Racing X twin turbo package. The setup is good for more than 2,300hp. Despite the massive power, this Lambo remains very streetable 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

TT Lambo Posts 6-Speed Half-Mile World Record

May 18th, 2016

There is an old and popular song that says “The Devil went down to Georgia – Looking for a soul to steal.” If he really did come down to the great state of Georgia, he would’ve been proud to drive this twin-turbocharged Underground Lamborghini Gallardo and steal a handful of records (personal and otherwise). This 2,000hp bad girl turned up at the WannaGoFast 1/2-Mile Shootout (in Clayton, Ga.) and took the track record, the event record, and set a brand new 6-speed world record for the 1/2-mile @ 221.08 mph. This is just another entry in a long list of Read More
