2008 Dodge Viper ACR: From L.A. to Bonneville

CHECK OUT THE VIPER AC-R ARTICLE: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Features/articleId=129907?tid=edmunds.il.home.photopanel..2.* We're about to make our first high-speed run in the still-black 2008 Dodge Viper ACR when the old guy pulls up to our makeshift pit. He looks exactly like the guy you'd expect to meet in the middle of the Bonneville Salt Flats, like a worn-out Hank Williams, Jr. Over the deafening cackle of his Cummins-powered diesel pickup, he yells, "What's you boys doin'?" "We're going to make a few runs in this Viper here." "Yeah, how fast will she run?" "We don't really know. Maybe 190 or so." By the expression on his face, it's obvious ol' Hank has figured out that we have no idea what we're doin'. He knows we're just a bunch of yahoos with a fast car. He takes a good long look at the big winged Viper, then he shuts off the truck's engine so we can hear him better. "When you're going fast, the slightest gust of wind can flip you," he says. "That's why we only ran early in the morning when the air was calm." We look up at the mid-afternoon sun and wonder what we've gotten ourselves into. "And make sure you don't run out of room," he continues. "You think you have all the space in the world, then Floating Mountain is suddenly right in your face. I remember when I went for 300 mph back in 1978; my chutes didn't open and I almost didn't get her stopped." He runs his fingers through a white beard. "Didn't make 300 either," he adds. "Only 280." Great. We thought this Bonneville thing was as easy as holding our foot down until the speedometer stopped moving. Now Mr. Monday Night has us imagining our $100,000 Viper sliding across the Utah desert on its roof.

2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10 Coupe by Edmunds' Inside Line
For full article: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=122304 "Brute strength and awkwardness" is a phrase that we heard a lot while growing up at Dad's race shop. He used it to describe a powerful yet ill-handling machine; or, more often, the driving technique of a hero driver attempting to cope with one. Both definitions rattled around in our brain as we traveled to Virginia International Raceway (VIR) to drive the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10.





Nissan GT-R @ El Mirage: 2009 Nissan GT-R Road Trip - Part 2
http://blogs.edmunds.com/Straightline/category/cat.2009NissanGT-RRoadTrip?t id=edmunds.il.home.photopanel..1.* No one in their right mind would take their brand new, $70,000 sports car onto a silt-covered dry lake just to do donuts in the dirt. So, of course, that's the first place we headed. There was plenty of room on El Mirage dry lake to stretch the GT-R's legs a little. We got it up to 130 mph before deciding that the limited visibility and random mounds of dirt made anything faster a potentially life -- and GT-R -- threatening exercise. Then we turned off the traction control and got it sideways to see what the GT-R is like when it's not stuck to the pavement. Shocker of the day -- it's fun. Click through to see the videos.





2009 Audi TT-RS Hits the Nürburgring - Spy Video
FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE AUDI TT-RS: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/GeneralFuture/articleId=128666?tid=edm unds.il.futurelanding.latestnews..4.* Since its introduction in 1999, the Audi TT has been known for its unique look — and its lackluster performance. The TT hasn't exactly been slow, but its lack of serious horsepower made it more of an image car than a true driver's coupe. This might change with the introduction of the 2009 Audi TT-RS, an all-out performance version of the stylish TT. Caught testing on the Nürburgring test track, the top-of-the-line TT wears several telltale design elements that identify it as a high-performance RS model. Up front, the TT-RS has the same metallic trim across the grille as the TTS, but closer inspection reveals large air intakes at each corner in place of foglights. Other styling differences include seven-spoke wheels and a pair of oval tailpipes, a signature RS design cue. It's hard to peg which engine will provide the power for the TT-RS at this point. Early rumors suggested a turbocharged five-cylinder, but the recent introduction of Audi's new 3.0-liter TFSI V6 suggests otherwise. The new supercharged motor is expected to develop roughly 300 horsepower in U.S. trim, a number that would put the TT-RS a solid notch above the TTS with its turbocharged 265-hp inline-4. Expect one of Audi's S tronic dual-clutch gearboxes with either six gears or possibly even seven. Like all RS models, the TT version will also get a retuned suspension, larger wheels and tires and upgraded brakes. Minor interior upgrades will be part of the package as well. Given the lack of camouflage on this test mule, expect a public introduction in the next few months, with U.S sales starting by early next year.
