Spring has arrived! What better way to celebrate than with a blown 6-speed drop-top V10 on an empty twisty country road.
You've - hopefully - got ten fingers and ten toes, shouldn't your car have ten cylinders too? Our Nice Price or Crack Pipe contender for this Friday does, and you'll need to decide if that fact makes this Crown Vic the deal of the decade.
If you're like me and can't afford a supercar, but you would like to drive one like a madman anyway, this might be the right option for you. This is my review of the Audi R8 V10 Driving Experience.
Man, it's been a rough couple of weeks for Chevy trucks. First one gets publicly humiliated by a Dodge truck in a tug-of-war that was probably allowed to go on too long, and now another one gets soundly trumped by some German engineering.
What you're looking at is the drawing for the world's longest and heaviest float, currently under construction in preparation for its debut at the Rose Bowl Parade. When complete it'll host the world's fastest skateboarding dog riding on a surfboard. No, you're not on drugs.
Yep, it's a ten-banger in a box. The Viper may be dead for the time being, but Chrysler will still build you a V10 by hand, intended for use in drag racing. The 8.4-liter monster makes 800 hp and 695 lb-ft. No pricing info has yet been released.
Youtube is flooded with videos of people drifting Subaru Imprezas, but this isn't just any Impreza. Underneath this Subaru's hood sits a V10 from a BMW M5. Watching this video requires overcoming the mind blowing sound to visual discrepancy.
There is something menacing and terrible about V10 engines. They lack the vocal complexity of the V12 and they also lack the screaming elegance of flat-plane V8’s. What they have instead is pure terror.
For all its performance creds, the late Dodge Viper was left wanting when it came to carrying home bags of fertilizer. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Ram SRT-10, however, will haul both manure and ass.
Chrysler decided to shoot 30 seconds of video showing a 300C sedan — sporting Utah dealer plates — supposedly imbibed with the 600-hp Viper V10 and an "SRT10" badge. So, you're just going to leave that there, then? [RedLetterDodge]
For the gentleman drag racer: the 600 HP, 8.4-liter V10 from the Dodge Viper has been shoehorned into the surprisingly capacious engine bay of the 2011 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak. A snip at $85,512.
The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento finally bared itself to the world in Paris, sporting 570 hp and carbon fiber everything. Pardon us if we feel the stripping was not worth the teasing.
Cincinnati Reds 2nd Baseman Brandon Phillips was arrested last month for "reckless driving" with his mom in the car. This is the hideous purple Audi R8 V10 he was arrested in. Update!
