I’m a big fan of today’s eclipse. It hit my little patch of land during the brightest part of the day, partially obscuring the sun and providing very welcome shade. But our sadly partial view of the natural eclipse was not as cool as the world’s fastest Mitsubishi Eclipse, which has over 1,200 horsepower.
Right in the middle of all the GT-Rs, Porsches and Lamborghinis that showed up to the Heuberger Subaru Pikes Peak Air Strip Attack at Colorado Springs Airport earlier this month was a seemingly humble 1994 Acura Integra driven by one Myles Kerr. But this is no ordinary Integra.
Here’s a car with an engine that is loud. In addition to being very powerful, putting some 2,700 horsepower to the rear tires from its whipple screw-supercharged 540 cubic inches, it is very loud. Of all engines, this is one of the louder ones.
There’s no such thing as too much power, just not a strong enough car.
Dutter Racing built one of the most wicked Audi 90s I’ve ever seen for Speed Race Fehring 2017. It was so fast that it added additional lightness on its drag run. Wow! Colin Chapman would be so proud.
Famed YouTube speed-redneck Cleetus McFarland came up with a new kind of drag racing for his “Cleetus and Cars” event: Demolition Derby Drag Racing. Line up two beaters at the start line, and then let ‘er rip—fastest car wins. The only catch is, the two competitors have to make contact before the finish line.
Watch as this twin-turbo Hemi Corvette lifts up in praise and soars straight into heaven. The car (and thankfully not the driver, who is fine) is with the angels now.
Count to six. That’s how long it takes for AMS Performance’s monstrosity of a Nissan GT-R to run the quarter mile. That’s not just quick, it’s terrifying.
A thousand feet down the track, the supercharger on Sean Belt’s nitro-burning iron big block Chevy exploded. Here’s as good a view of that explosion as you’re gonna get.
I have never been more jealous of high school shop than I am now. Look at this badass S-10, complete with an LS swap and a 400-shot nitrous setup, built entirely by high school kids.
Last Friday, Leah Pritchett broke the Top Fuel national time record with a ludicrously quick 3.658-second pass at the NHRA Arizona Nationals, reaching a ridiculous 329.34 mph in that short time. Here’s everything she and her team had to remember to get out of the way to prepare for such a run.
Winning is great and all, but what you really want is to win with some style.
Everybody has their own idiosyncratic set of criteria when it comes to buying a car. I have a weird space-utilization fetish, for example. If you’re someone who’s really into width, specifically tire width, your next car purchase is already decided. That’s because the upcoming Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will have…
Few car nerds get as pissed about a digression from tradition as Corvette fans, which is why I absolutely adore this pristine 1968 ‘Vette with a Cummins 6BT diesel swap. Also, it rips.
2016 couldn’t end on a quiet note. No, it had to go ahead and give us another solid candidate for Save of the Year.
Don’t wait until Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! to watch this epic retro highlight reel of monster trucks, insane dragsters, dirt bikes, chaos, destruction and all that is right with the world. It’s so rad that I just grew a Miami Vice ‘stache just thinking about it.
The best look we have at the potential of Faraday Future’s first car is a series of drag races the company showed off beating a Bentley Bentayga, Ferrari 488 and Tesla Model X. But there’s something that’s weird about the drag races themselves.
Truly, we are living in an extraordinary time for nutjob junkyard engineering. As proof, look at this otherwise junky Malaise Era Camaro with a 6.0-liter LS V8 out of a truck with four turbos pulled off Ford Ecoboost engines. It is a monster.
