he finds is not just another GTR, because this is the fastest street car
he's ever driven.

*Update* After carefully re-checking the VIN and build date, Matt's
Delorean is actually a 1983 model, not a 1981 model. It was built in August
of 1982. Matt doesn't care. Thanks DMC geeks for assisting with that.

The 500 AWHP, AWD, Hillclimbing, Psycho Syclone - /TUNED
We end our fourth season with probably our favorite subject car of all
time, Adam Auerbach's GMC Syclone Hillclimber. This truck is what "Tuned"
is all about; customized in every way possible, 100% function with form
following suit. It's nasty, dirty, evil, and perfect.
The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
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 BMW E30 is quickly becoming a cult classic among the DIY, autocross,
and track crowd. And though the M3 version may be climbing so quickly in
price, soon no one will be able to afford one, the 325i, as it turns out,

E30 is just about the nicest one we've seen, and if you think it looks

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
