November 18th, 2020

Cipher this riddle for me: What is virtually the same as a Lamborghini Huracan, right down to the V10 engine and monocoque chassis, but costs a hundred grand less? How about an Audi R8 V10 Plus? The R8 and the Huracan are both produced by the Volkswagen Group using the same powertrain and general format. That’s a win/win proposition. Now add a Stage 3 Package (with billet cylinder heads) from Underground Racing (UGR) and you have a genuine street monster. Let’s take a look. First impressions? What can’t be overlooked is that this car looks and sounds amazing, and the Read More

Europe’s Fastest Audi RS3 vs. Porsche 911 Turbo S – Drag Race

October 15th, 2020

Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to this battle between two German powerhouses. While these two cars are both manufactured in the same country, there are very obvious differences in their makeup. Let’s begin with forced air induction – both of them have turbos.

The Porsche is rear engine vehicle with an air-cooled twin turbo 6-cylinder engine. The turbocharged Audi RS3 is powered by a 2.5-liter engine. It has been modified with Read More

Daylight Street Hits – 900HP Nitrous Dodge Viper

October 1st, 2020

Hello gearheads and speed aficionados of every creed. What could be better than street racing under the sunny skies of old Mexico?

Featured in this production are some of the wildest cars (and a motorcycle) that you are Read More

With a complete interior, air conditioning and premium audio, this 2018 Audi RS3 is a daily driver. Under the hood of this all-wheel drive sedan is a turbocharged 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine mated to a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. In factory trim, the RS3 makes 400hp and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5-seconds. Obviously, Read More
