Driving a car at 250 mph looks terrifying. It looks like hyperspace. It looks like death blurring your vision. Things look different from the passenger seat, a view that we may have never had before.
I went to the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show with an edict from my bosses: “Don’t just stand around and complain that there aren’t any manual-transmission rear-drive lead sleds there.” Don’t worry, I found one anyway, and it’s a fantastic old Acura NSX!
It might look like any other IROC-Z, but it doesn’t drive like one.
Today’s Mercedes Benz C36 AMG was originally built to challenge BMW’s M3 and is one of only 200 that were ever imported to the U.S. to do so. Your challenge is to decide if this low-mileage example is Nice Price or Crack Pipe.
I’ve been going to SEMA for more than a dozen years now, and I’ve seen it go from an over the top, in-your-face festival of insanity during the peak of the internet boom in the early 2000s to a ghost town a half a dozen years later thanks to the global recession. The good news is that SEMA is back and stronger than…
Your eyes do not deceive you. That’s a Lamborghini Murcielago going head to head with a Lexus LFA in a professional drift battle.
It takes more than just a bunch of LEDs to stand out in the Japanese tuner car world. Like a holographic wrap, flamethrower exhaust, and a Lamborghini Aventador somewhere underneath all that. Merciful mushrooms look at this thing.
Brabus, responsible for some of the most aggressively ostentatious tuner cars, has passed its brush over the Tesla Model S. And it’s almost elegant! Is nobody brave enough to put some offensive flaps and stance on this car?
This is a Nissan 240SX with the retro Plymouth Cuda-lookalike Rocket Bunny Boss kit, lifted and turned into a prerunner. It is blowing my mind right now.
The swamp muck tourist trap Times Square is unquestionably the most crowded, busy, garbage place to take a car just about anywhere in the world. So we took this 500 horsepower “street car” built by professional drifter Ryan Tuerck there to see if it could handle it.
There is perhaps no more low-key amazing car culture in the world than in New Zealand. For example, here is a video simply captioned ‘testing the new exhaust.’
I’ll tell you exactly.
What’s that you say? Porsche doesn’t make a turbo 911 GT3? That’s true — Jeff Zwart did.
In the 1980s, if you had the cash to buy a Porsche 911 Turbo but sheer speed wasn’t enough to impress your inner Pablo Escobar, you went slant nose with Uwe Gemballa.
It’s not easy to get a car to spit hot fire. It’s especially not easy when that car is an Audi R8, that paragon of Teutonic efficiency. But one way you can get it really cooking is by dumping an extra 775 horsepower into the beast, to make a 1,300 horsepower flame-spewing hellbeast from the deepest pit of Hades.
With twin turbos and tuner mods, today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe 911 should be a ball to drive - a Gemballa in fact. Will it’s price also prove likewise?
When it comes to used vehicles, I’ve always said “mileage doesn’t matter” as long as the car’s got good service history and a reputable seller. Here’s a chance to test that theory: GM tuner Callaway is selling development cars, including this near-perfect supercharged Corvette for less than the price of its upgrades.
If you own a new sports car — let’s say you have a Nissan 370Z — how much power would you make from a twin turbo kit, and how hard would it be?
Daigo Saito does not screw around with drift cars. Here’s his new 1000 horsepower R35 Nissan GT-R.
