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.

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.
