Quarter-Mile Pass – Lamborghini vs. Z06

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

Street Race – Corvette vs. Shelby GT500

It just doesn’t get much better than this; here is a classic street battle between Ford and Chevy. The action is coming at you from an industrial park – on a dead-end thoroughfare. The ‘Vette makes a great first impression as it comes on strong, looking like a beast during warm-ups. The Mustang comes out of the hole with cold tires and walks the track to win the first pass. In the second pass, it seems that the Chevy has made some tuning changes and defeats the Shelby handily. The only thing missing is a third and final pass for Read More

Street Racing – Z06 vs. Porsche 911 and More

BK34 has taken it to the streets (down in Mexico, of course) in his modified Corvette Z06. This bodacious bowtie is equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharger engine from the factory. Add some strategically placed bolt-ons, a camshaft upgrade, and some upgraded cylinder heads and you have the advertised 580whp. He should have his hands full tonight with a Porshe 911 and a Toyota Supra. The ‘Yota has a Precision 6765 turbo and is claiming 650hp. The Porsche is running some very pricey aftermarket add-ons and claiming 540hp at the rear wheels. This is highly-competitive, 3-wide roll racing. Let’s take a Read More

8-Second Manual Transmission Fox Body Mustang

I’m not sure where this guy came from but he showed up at Street Car Takeover in Charlotte, North Carolina and drove the wheels off this stick-shift Mustang. You just don’t see many drivers who can use a clutch and get out of the hole like this guy – he ain’t skeered.  This is heads-up drag racing action between some awesome competitors. The car has a built small block Ford 5.0-liter engine with a turbocharger that the driver calls cheap and foreign-made. Regardless of where the turbo came from, or how much it costs, the car ran good enough to Read More

Airstrip Attack – 800HP Volkswagen Golf

After cramming a 3.6-liter V6 (from a Passat) into this Golf, this thing is ready to spank some supercars on a closed airstrip. HRP Performance (Germany) put their brand of bullet proof engine modification to work under the hood of this very bad girl that gives the word fahrvergnügen (German for driving enjoyment) a while new meaning. An HRP kit, with a pair of turbochargers, gives this grocery-getter the extra get-up-and-go to run with the big boys. Despite not being a beast out of the hole (no smoke and no spin), this European nightmare manages to get down the track Read More

Street Racing – Ludicrous Tesla vs. Modified GT-R

In this clip, it’s about to jump off between two extremely powerful but dramatically different daily drivers. The race is all out mayhem between two all-wheel drive powerhouses and it goes from 0 to 100 mph – for $1,000. Whoever is out front, when either car hits 100 mph, takes home the cash. The Tesla S P85D (in Ludicrous mode) is one tough hombre. The Tesla is all-electric, makes approximately 762hp, and can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8-seconds. The Nissan is no slouch, with over 550 factory hp and all the bolt-ons. Buckle up – this Read More

2017 Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera LP640-4 to have 639 Horsepower

A recent Lamborghini VIN identification document shows the upcoming Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera to be a 2017 Model year along with a power output of 470 kW which converts to 639HP which probably puts the naming at LP640-4 Superleggera. With the power increase and less weight it should be interesting to see how the new Huracan competes against it’s primary competitors; the McLaren 675LT (666 HP) and Ferrari 488 (660 HP).  Check out the details in the document below:
