The Lamborghini brand has a rich reputation for sleek and powerful premium sports cars. This version may be the baddest of the heap. The name ‘Aventador’ is taken from a particularly vicious Spanish fighting bull and the ‘SV’ represents Super Veloce or ‘Super Fast’. The ‘LP750’ symbolizes the 741hp made by the 6.5-liter V12 engine and the ‘4’ indicates that this beast is all-wheel driven. This Italian masterpiece is capable of rocketing from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.8-seconds; making it a killer street racing machine. It has a top speed that exceeds 217 mph and costs around $500K.

You seldom see a vintage Toyota Celica making waves on the drag strip. This little car has everything it takes to pull off that classic import look and all the high-performance goodies to make it run like a modern roll racing superstar.

The Speed Warehouse team did Read More
While we’ve seen a bunch of races between the Tesla Model S and various supercars, this is the first we’ve seen of the all new 7 passenger 5,600 pound Model X Tesla SUV racing. The Model X in the video is a P90D with the optional $10,000 Ludicrous mode going up against a bright red and loud Ferrari F430 with the F1 6 speed transmission. While the power to weight ratio is heavily in the Ferrari’s favor, the monstrous amount of instant torque and all wheel drive in the Tesla play a big role in this race.
Now, get this! This Toyota MR2 (mid-engine setup) is equipped with a Honda drivetrain. That includes a K20 2.0-liter engine that has been fitted with dart racing sleeves, JE Pistons, Manley valve train components, a stock cylinder head (camshaft upgrade), and a 66-millimeter turbo making between 25 and 36-pounds of boost. The combination is capable of churning out over 900hp and it is shifted using a sequential transmission.

This is straight-up, 3-wide street racing action between a couple of power house sports cars and a Honda. First, the big dogs line-up for some 60mph roll racing.
