The 2015 Hennessey VelociRaptor SUV takes the current Ford F-250 and turns it into an eight-seat ass-hauler with a front bumper like Quagmire’s chin and a supercharger on the 6.2 gasoline V8. It’s the 2015 Ford Excursion we won’t get, plus tons of horsepower.
Nissan invited some big names from the pickup truck aftermarket to climb all over the Cummins diesel-powered 2016 Titan XD and measure it for their various accessories. Looks like Nissan’s going to support of you modifying your new truck if you buy it from them. Interesting.
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.
Luxo-tuner Startech has sliced the back off a long wheelbase Range Rover and turned it into a little monster like something between a cereal box toy and Megazord. It's wider and faster than a regular Range Rover, and since it has a "bed" you can reportedly skirt luxury taxes importing it as a commercial vehicle.
The 2011 to 2014 Ford Raptor is highly off-road capable with 411 horsepower. The Shelby Baja 700 adds a 2.9 liter supercharger, big ol' exhaust, jump-worthy suspension, and takes the output up to (you guessed it) 700 horsepower.
Kahn Design is a part supplier on the insanity scale between outfitters Mansory and Icon, leaning hard toward this side of "batshit." This Land Rover Defender 2.4 TDCI 90 "Chelsea Wide Track" Pickup is what happens when they slap a big dose of body cladding on a tiny little truck. And it totally works.
AC Schnitzer's goal of making bad decisions into a viable business model consistently delivers. The latest bit of evidence is this BMW Z4 with the M50d's diesel shoved into the nose and tuned to put out 620 lb-ft of torque. That should do.
It's gotten to the point where we scoff that the Ferrari LaFerrari can "only" reach 217 mph, but with all of the Texas highway and Ehra-Lessien videos out there, it's hard to remember that there are only a few places where the brave can try for 200 mph.
If one photo could sum up the entirety of 80s German tuning, you're looking at it. It's the interior of a Mercedes 280TE by Zender, and amazingly not a single Smurf was harmed in the process.
To give GM fans a ground-pounding off-road alternative to the Ford Raptor (and troll the Blue Oval), Corvette tuning legend Ken Lingenfelter and truck tuner Southern Comfort Automotive got together and created a suped-up Silverado called the Reaper. This is the first one we've seen in the wild.
German tuning out Regula-Exclusive has carved an incredibly complex body kit for the Porsche Cayenne, which kinda makes it look like an Audi from a movie set thirty years in the future. In the present it's pretty intense, but I find it strangely appealing.
British GT-R tuner Severn Valley Motorsport (SVM) has executed a new approach to the performance SUV— packing performance parts and the powerplant from an R35 into Nissan's 7-passenger Qashqai.
There are hot rods. There are rat rods. Then there's this: A new Camaro SS that's been speed-rusted and deglossed into junkyard condition while getting a 1,000-hp supercharged engine — and it only cost $150,000.
Citing poor market conditions HKS USA, formerly one of the largest aftermarket JDM performance companies in the country, is ceasing U.S. operations after nearly three decades in business. A letter obtained by Jalopnik shows the company will consolidate its work to Japan.
The experts in pony car animal husbandry knew their talents would not go to waste when Ford revived the 5.0-liter V8 dubbed Coyote. Here's one of their first crossbreeds, a swap into a Fox-body Mustang. Call it the Foxyote.
Only old Axis buddies like Germany and Japan could shape this kind of cross-cultural moment; an annual fair for Japanese sports-car fans in Deutschland dubbed "Reisbrennen" — literally, "rice burning." Hot cars transcend any language.
