After cramming a 3.6-liter V6 (from a Passat) into this Golf, this thing is ready to spank some supercars on a closed airstrip. HRP Performance (Germany) put their brand of bullet proof engine modification to work under the hood of this very bad girl that gives the word fahrvergnügen (German for driving enjoyment) a while new meaning. An HRP kit, with a pair of turbochargers, gives this grocery-getter the extra get-up-and-go to run with the big boys. Despite not being a beast out of the hole (no smoke and no spin), this European nightmare manages to get down the track Read More
In this clip, it’s about to jump off between two extremely powerful but dramatically different daily drivers. The race is all out mayhem between two all-wheel drive powerhouses and it goes from 0 to 100 mph – for $1,000. Whoever is out front, when either car hits 100 mph, takes home the cash. The Tesla S P85D (in Ludicrous mode) is one tough hombre. The Tesla is all-electric, makes approximately 762hp, and can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8-seconds. The Nissan is no slouch, with over 550 factory hp and all the bolt-ons. Buckle up – this Read More
A recent Lamborghini VIN identification document shows the upcoming Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera to be a 2017 Model year along with a power output of 470 kW which converts to 639HP which probably puts the naming at LP640-4 Superleggera. With the power increase and less weight it should be interesting to see how the new Huracan competes against it’s primary competitors; the McLaren 675LT (666 HP) and Ferrari 488 (660 HP). Check out the details in the document below:
Feel like a 1,300-mile road trip? How about in a turbo car that is pushing over 2,000hp? Now, try it with four-rounds of drag racing along the way? That’s exactly what Rocky Mountain Race Week 2016 entails for Doug Cline and his awesome orange 1969 Chevy Camaro. This car is in every way a street car – that is capable of posting 1/4-mile passes that dip into the 6-second range (over 200 mph). It is equipped with a 598 cubic-inch big block Chevy engine and a pair of Precision 94-millimeter turbochargers. Ride along as this journey winds through the Colorado Read More
Dewayne Mills in his Golden Gorilla Camaro has just established a new personal best and a world record for turbocharged cars on radial tires – in the 1/8-mile. This footage was shot during the Rage by the River Event; during the semi-finals and finals. The latter of which featured a $7,500 cash prize. After an outstanding weekend of racing, Dewayne and the boys find themselves running solo in the semi-final round. They proceed to post an eye-catching 3.79-second pass at 206.45 mph; that’s good enough to take the world record and move on to the finals. Check out the action Read More
The staff at Alpha Performance has undertaken the task of trying to destroy their own Alpha 10 Huracan turbocharger kit – thus far with no success. First, they hit the road for the brutal 3,000-mile Gold Rush Rally; stopped by Pike’s Peak and ran the Tail of the Dragon. Through rigorous testing, the Alpha 10 kit performed without a hitch. Next, they went out to the drag strip and you can see the results here. The car ran consistent 9-second passes without fail. The Alpha 10 system utilizes the stock engine and requires only bolt-on installation. It features a pair Read More
We demonstrate when we decide TO use and NOT use the Tesla autopilot system in a Tesla Model S P90D Ludicrous during an early morning commute in Miami, Florida.
The perfect example of a street car is one that you can beat on during long days at the strip and then drive home in the comfort of cool air conditioning. This Nitto GT-R is just that type of car. It has 245/70/17 Mickey Thompson ET street radial tires but it can still make a 9-second 1/4-mile pass if the need arises. This all-wheel drive monster has a Nitto modified 3.2-liter block with a stroker kit, JE forged pistons, topped with a race ported RB26 cylinder head, and custom secret-spec camshafts. A Precision 8285 turbocharger forces massive amounts of air Read More
