The 900 HP Heffner Twin Turbo Lamborghini LP-560 -- /TUNED
/Tuned goes to Sarasota to visit Heffner Performance, the first company to
ever build a twin-turbo kit for the
Lamborghini Gallardo. In a barely marked, unassuming suburban shop, Jason
Heffner turns out some of the tuning world's craziest creations. His
twin-turbo Lamborghini LP-560 seems so
right, however, that we feel it should be standard equipment from the
Mitch Allread: Don't Call it a Rat Rod... - /BIG MUSCLE
It packs a 400 hp diesel out of a Ford F-350, a Dana 80 rear-end, and a
look and feel that would make Max Rockatansky feel right at home. This is
Mitch Allread's custom fabricated creation and it is, without a doubt, one
of the coolest things on the road today. This is a machine that transcends
the traditional hot rod formula by breaking down borders and setting its
Whereas most hot-rods are built by custom shops utilizing parts from mail
order catalogs, Mitch took a different approach and fabricated just about
everything on his ride by hand. Calling this a rat-rod would be an insult -
a work of art however... that'd be just fine.

Best Paint Touch-up Tricks: Mercedes G55
This is one of the worst key scratches I have ever seen. This car needed to
be repainted, but I thought I would give it a shot...nothing to lose. It
covered 3 separate door panels with varying depth levels. 98% of the 9 feet
was through the clear coat, paint, base, and into the substrate. EXTREMELY
bad scratch. In this episode, I discuss multiple ways to approach this type
of paint damage. I want to be crystal clear: THIS CAR NEEDED TO BE
REPAINTED FOR 90-100% satisfaction. My techniques here, with the
understanding of the customer, had the best-case final results of 70% to
75% "better or touched-up" appearance. See how it turned out. Thx for
1967 GT500 Eleanor: Re-imagining a Classic - /BIG MUSCLE
Carroll Shelby created it, "Gone in 60 Seconds" re-imagined it, and
audiences around the world made it famous. The 1967 Shelby GT500 Eleanor is
one of the most recognizable movie cars of all time. With the body lines of
a shark, the stage presence of a movie star and the perceived performance
of an olympic athlete, it's no wonder die-hard enthusiasts fell in love
with this amazing machine. BIG MUSCLE received so many requests for this
car that we just had to go out and find one. So now sit back, click play
and enjoy... and don't bust my chops in regards to my glasses - it was
really sunny that day - M. Musto

Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.
The World's Fastest DeLorean - /TUNED
