The 450 HP Crawford Performance Turbo BRZ - /TUNED
We love the FRS and BRZ twins; they offer an approachable limit of performance and phenomenal dynamics in an affordable package. And we learned earlier this season that a bolt-on turbo kit will add to the FRS's performance without taking away from it's character. But what happens when you double the BRZ's horsepower and triple it's torque? We find out.
The STILLEN 500 HP Supercharged Nissan 370Z - /TUNED
TUNED Visits racing legend Steve Millen's STILLEN in Costa Mesa, CA to see
what happens when he gets his hands on the Nissan 370Z. Already a potent
machine, what happens when STILLEN upgrades pretty much everything?
Fortunately, it doesn't suck.
The 350 HP VCMC Turbo Scion FR-S - /TUNED
Tuned heads to Chuckwalla Raceway to test out VCMC's turbo FR-S, built for Canada's Tuner Challenge.
It's a fully built track car, and as an added challenge, Matt gets to share
the track with the practice session for the 24 Hours of Lemons.
The 1,100 HP Switzer "Ultimate Street Edition" GTR - /TUNED
It wasn't long ago that driving a 1000+ horsepower car came with
many sacrifices. These were race or show cars, not to be used daily. Enter
the Switzer "Ultimate Street" GTR. On pump gas, it makes 1,000 horsepower with virtually no
downside. On race gas, it makes 1,100 horsepower. And the owner of
this particular GTR uses it as his daily driver to commute to work. Is
enough to get to the office? We'll find out.
**Update** 0-60: 2.5s, 1/4 Mile: 9.4 @ 150, Standing Mile 208 mph.
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.
