What do you think of when you think of British motorsports? Jaguars, Aston Martins, Lotuses, and Morgans doing fast things? Loud noises? Beautiful shades of green paint? The British motorsports scene wasn’t always like that.
The result is not what you might expect.
Drag racing a motorcycle takes nerves of steel and, in this case, powerful legs and some solid cardiovascular training.
Code Brown: medical lingo spoken to indicate a release of fecal matter on oneself, usually in high stress situations. Situations like this lucky Dodge Viper getting within millimeters of annihilation in the form of a drag strip wall.
Now that the new Tesla Model X electric SUV is finally being delivered to customers it’s time to see just exactly what kind of performance we can expect. Luckily for us, Tesla followed up the insanely powerful Ludicrous mode Model S P90D with an equally Ludicrous Model X P90D, and somebody raced them.
How much quicker is the P85D compared to the former range-topping Tesla Model S? The dual-motor EV utterly humiliates it in a drag race.
Every year, Motor Trend brings together a bunch of cars to name their Best Driver's Car. And every year they drag race all ten of them on an air strip. But this year they have a Porsche 911 Turbo S and a Nissan GT-R Nismo. Which one is faster?
I know in certain beach communities, we're quite popular with the seagull population, which is why I'm issuing this warning: I think some seagulls get hurt or possibly killed in this video. That GT-R is hauling a significant amount of metric ass when it impacts that seagull flock, and the results aren't great.
Converting a Mazda Miata into an electric dragster may be considered sacrilege in certain circles, but when it spanks a Model S in a drag race and runs the quarter-mile nearly a half-second quicker than a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, that should be enough to quell the haters.
We get dozens of emails every hour asking one question. That questions? Which is faster: a Bugatti Veyron Supersport or a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse? Well, wonder no more, dear readers, for we have the answer.
A bit more than 2,000 hp in a Gallardo equals a quarter mile time of 10.293 and a mile in 23.479 at 230 mph. Pretty much unbeatable performance.
Today's question is whether a 550 horsepower Nissan GT-R with launch control, or an Oris Swiss Hunter Fighter Jet with 22,000 hp Rolls-Royce engine can cross the finish line earlier.
We all love a drag race with a crazy fast car and a motorbike, but this car really is special and with about 900hp from Nine Excellence it is an absolute monster! The bike just happened to be at the track lapping so we decided to race it. It's a Daytona 675, not the quickest bike it seems so we think we need…
The folks at Lethal Performance say this 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 is the quickest of its kind in the world. To prove it, they brought us this video, complete with foreboding Hans Zimmer-eqsue music, slow camera pans over the car, and of course, some insane drag strip launches.
No matter what you think of Tesla, you have to admit that the Model S is a ballsy, ground breaking machine. It is pretty much the first electric car that could be considered an almost viable alternative to a traditional gas powered car in terms of refinement and range.
With very few exceptions, Hondas are front-drivers, and front-drivers don't make the best wheelie cars. An exception in the Honda fleet being the late, departed S2000. Watch as this heavily-tuned unit managed a very un-Honda-like nose loft (helped by massive boost and drag slicks) at TX2K12 this past weekend.
The appeal of the Bugatti Veyron is it's so fast and so well-engineered any obscenely wealthy person can hop into it and be faster than other, poorer, people. Not this guy. He appears to not understand how the vehicle's launch control works and sits there, lamely, as the guy in the GT-R blows him away.
