No power steering. No power door locks. No power brakes. It's just you, a 40-year-old rear-drive coupe, three pedals, a turbocharged SR20 engine with nearly 400 horsepower and the road.
Subaru made a lot of amazing performance cars in the 1990s, and basically none of them came to America. That means us here on this side of the pond had to improvise. Like this.P
The aftermarket for the Ford Mustang is simply insane. But it always seems that the best modified Mustangs come straight from Ford. Does the Roush Stage 3 defeat the Boss 302 as the best Mustang you can get?
What's better for maximizing your game than a friendly rivalry? Maybe an unfriendly one? But if the second isn't available, the first can work too. Just ask these two friends who've created a pair of Subaru RS coupes fit for inclusion in "things Subaru should have built."
We already know Turner Motorsport enjoys a bit of the ol' hot drifting blond, but what's its like to drive the Turner 2011 Continental Tire Series Championship-winning E92 M3 Race Car, sans blond? Let's see.
The Nissan GT-R is a stunningly capable car right from the factory. Add a few hundred extra horsepower and it's a jarheaded MMA enthusiast deep in the throes of 'roid rage. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
The car world is lousy with fly-by-night tuning shops. RENNtech isn't one of them. Founded in the 1980s by 15-year AMG veteran Hartmut Feyhl, the Florida shop has put the screws to hundreds of Mercedes-Benz (as well as Porsche and BMW) products over the decades.
Remember that movie about moving at a high rate of speed while being, er, angrily frenzied? I forget what it was called. Either way, that movie made legend of the tuned Mk4 Toyota Supra. But what's it like to drive one of those things?
The Shelby Mustang GT500's 662 hp may have outstripped the Camaro ZL1's 580, but Hennessey's built a redeemer. That's the ZL1-based 700 hp Camaro HPE700, which, aside from being as horse-rife as a Lamborghini Aventador, can hit 185 mph in the standing mile. Pretty snappy.
We may have already driven DMC's electric Delorean, but Matt Farah does it on video. So here it is, and now let's see if we can get out of this post without any Back to the Future references. Instead, let's pretend the Delorean starred in another 1985 film, Brewster's Millions, with Richard Pryor and John Candy.
In stock form the Cadillac CTS-V is already quite the tarmac spanker. And yet, those who can't leave well enough alone will be pleased to find out the car takes to tuning like a duck to l'orange sauce.
Wait, you said your Ford F-150 SVT Raptor pickup is too slow and not thirsty enough? There's a remedy for that, and its name is John Hennessey. Texas is where you'll find him, up to his elbows in supercharger.
If you've ever been Waterfest or H20 — the big VAG-togethers for VW/Audi fans — you know how rabid tuning shop APR's fanbase is. The Alabama-based outfit has been responsible for some major-league hardware and software upgrades.
We've been waiting for someone to test drive the turbocharged, double-OMFG Hennessey Venom, and someone finally did. That someone is Matt Farah. Prepare to feast your ears on one of the most amazing sounds you've ever heard on the highway. Farah screaming his head off.
