Hennessey Jeep Trackhawk Has 1,012HP, Wiped 1/4 Mile In 10.7s

What’s your impression of a Jeep? Probably just a good, off-road family car, but never a speed demon. Well, that is until 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk comes around. Armed with a supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 engine, this monster of SUV rockets from 0-60 (0-97 km/h) in 3.5 seconds and ripped through the quarter mile in 11.6s. Astounding, indeed. That’s super duper quick for a SUV, but for the folks at Hennessey Performance, it is never enough. Continue reading Hennessey Jeep Trackhawk Has 1,012HP, Wiped 1/4 Mile In 10.7s

Here’s A Prove That Loud Cars Always Get Unwanted Attentions

Here’s a video of a Nissan GT-R that purportedly has 1850HP under the hood being pull over by a police officer. Now, there was no explanation as to why it was pulled in, then again, looking that the massive, wider-than-its-body rear wing, we can only speculate that mods were the issues – specifically, the wing. The ride is super low too and has flared fenders which looks like a wide body kit. Is this the most beautiful Nissan GT-R we have seen? Nope. Certainly not.

Classic Volkswagen Beetle Reimagined Into A Drool Worthy Roadster

If you are a huge fan of the classic Volkswagen Beetle, chances are you have heard of German-based Memminger. If you haven’t, I bet you will, starting with the Memminger Beetle Roadster 2.7 because, this thing is a definition of beauty. Now, I am not a huge fan of air-cooled Beetle. I never thought it was a cool car. A Rabbit is a cool car, not the Beetle. Guess I just have a thing for straight lines. But, but… this Memminger Beetle Roadster 2.7 here changes everything. Continue reading Classic Volkswagen Beetle Reimagined Into A Drool Worthy Roadster

Porsche 911 GT3 RS Tamed ‘Green Hell’ With 6:56.4 minutes Lap Time

The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS may not be fastest Porsche yet, but it sure makes the notorious 20.6 km (12.8 miles) ‘Green Hell’ at Nürburgring-Nordschleife circuit in Germany looked tame. Piloted by Porsche development driver Lars Kern and Porsche works race driver Kévin Estre, the 520 horsepower Porsche GT3 RS set a lap time in 6:56.4 minutes, becoming the third production Porsche sports car with a notarized lap time of less than seven minutes. Continue reading Porsche 911 GT3 RS Tamed ‘Green Hell’ With 6:56.4 minutes Lap Time

Honda Civic Type R BTCC Is How A Civic Type R Should Look Like

Remember I ranted how bad looking the 10th generation Honda Civic was when it was unveiled? To our dismay, the Type R, with the aeros and all, isn’t any better. It was a tad better at best. Well, it looks like not all hopes are lost. As it turns out, it CAN be saved and the Halfords Yuasa Racing Honda Civic Type R-based BTCC race car is the living proof. If Honda designers need a good reference what race-bred looks like, this is it. It has everything a race-bred car have and should have, including fat wheel arches, slow slung ride hide, front splitter and the works. Continue reading Honda Civic Type R BTCC Is How A Civic Type R Should Look Like

MINI JCW GP Concept Has So Many Things Going On On The Exterior

There is really nothing much to talk about the MINI John Cooper Works GP Concept that made the show floor at the recent New York International Auto Show. It is a concept that either you hate it or love it. As you can see, the ride has so many things going on the exterior that they almost made it look very spaceship-like. Not a lot is known about this oddity except that the over-the-top exterior is supposed to convey a pure race feeling (wait, does it???).

SEAT Made CUPRA A Standalone Brand, Unveiled A 670HP CUPRA E-Racer And A 296HP CUPRA SUV

If haven’t already heard, SEAT has split out CUPRA model to be an independent brand – probably as a show of its resolution in turning out performance rides. The first vehicle to bear the CUPRA badge is Ateca, a sporty SUV that, unlike most SUV, is no slouch in the performance. With 300 PS (about 296 horses) from its 2.0 TSI motor, the CUPRA Ateca has well over 100 horses over SEAT Ateca which, coupled with SEAT 4Drive traction system and a new 7-speed DSG gearbox, allows it wipe the century sprint in just 5.4 seconds and reach an un-SUV top speed of 152 mph. Continue reading SEAT Made CUPRA A Standalone Brand, Unveiled A 670HP CUPRA E-Racer And A 296HP CUPRA SUV

Holy Smoke! The Legend Lives. The Toyota Supra Is Making A Comeback!

When Toyota decided to split up its Toyota Celica Supra, it was probably the best decision. Unfortunately, as awesome the move was, the Supra moniker did not last. It ended with the JZA80 model, Toyota’s most powerful production model, after 16 years (or nearly 25 years, and four generations, if you count the Celica-Supra era). Fast forward to today, Toyota finally confirmed that it is bringing back the legend. Yes. You heard that right. The legend lives! Or at least, it is going to live sometime in near future. And Toyota affirms the move with a compact, two-door coupe at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, called Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept. Continue reading Holy Smoke! The Legend Lives. The Toyota Supra Is Making A Comeback!

BMW Sold 12K M2 Coupe In 2017, Celebrates With A Special Black Shadow Edition

BMW is particularly proud of the BMW M2 last year. In all, the German automaker said it has pushed out 12,000 units all over the world. Pardon me for my ignorance, but 12,000 is not a lot, right? Oh well, whatever it is, BMW thought it is a milestone worth mentioning and celebrating with a special edition BMW M2 called BMW M2 Coupe Edition Black Shadow. The Edition Black Shadow is supposed to emphasize “the compact high-powered sports car’s performance characteristics with precisely harmonized design features.” How so? I have absolutely no idea. Continue reading BMW Sold 12K M2 Coupe In 2017, Celebrates With A Special Black Shadow Edition

Porsche 911 GT3 RS Is The Most Powerful Road-legal Naturally-aspirated Sports Car

Later at Geneva today, Porsche will be taking the wrap off the most powerful road-legal high-performance sports car with a naturally aspirated (NA) engine, the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The 2018 911 GT3 RS is expected to premiere on March 6, 2018, at 9:20AM (CET). Expect nothing less than 520 angry horses – 20 HP more over its predecessor, and 470 Nm (347 lb-ft) from its 4L six-cylinder naturally-aspirated engine, which is paired to a specially calibrated seven-speed PDK to enable this monster of the road to rocket from zero to 62 miles an hour (100 km/h) in mere 3.2 seconds and sending it on its way to 312 km/h (about 193 miles an hour).
