Tesla Model S P100D 1/4 Mile Testing at Palm Beach International Raceway vs a Huracan and Nissan GT-R
While we got rained out last week and weather wasn’t looking good for this week either, we headed out to Palm Beach International Raceway to give the all new Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous it’s first real world test down the 1/4 mile drag strip. Luckily the weather held and we got some awesome races in. To make things interesting we lined up the Tesla vs a Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 and based on previous runs with the Huracan and some Racelogic VBOX tests with the P100D, we knew it was going to be a close race.

Underground Racing (UR) has scored again with their earth shaking X-Package.

When you think about Minnesota and Ford, images of furrowed ground and lush crops may come to mind but this “Star of the North” based Ford can run circles around anyone’s tractor. This is no trailer queen either; the owner drive it all over the U.S. – stopping only long enough to do a little tuning before taking on the local 1/4, 1/2, or 1-mile track. This clip catches owner and operator (Dan) at Street Car Takeover in St Louis, Missouri, after 500-miles of abusive road driving (part of a 7,000-mile week).

Take a look at this race between the all new Tesla Model S P100D racing a Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4. Both cars have all whee drive and run 0-60 MPH in under 3 seconds. How long can the Tesla fight off the exotic super car from Italy? Take a look and see!
Whoa! Better than a Bugatti? There are very few cars that make that claim but that’s the scoop on this Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) modified Ford Mustang GT500. At a sticker price that is less than a quarter of the Veyron, this pony car might just be worth a second look.

The sheet metal work alone may take up four-months to complete. Read More
