Just a week after Saleen released information and images of its upcoming Mustang-based S302 mega pony car, Hennessey Performance has dropped into our laps renderings and information on its sinister HPE700 Mustang. (Coincidence? We think not.) And as usual with a Hennessey product, it is absolutely drunk on power.
How much power? Thanks to a Roots supercharger—Hennessey’s anabolic steroid of choice—as well as upgrades to the throttle body, fuel injectors, fuel pump, and exhaust system, Hennessey claims to wring 717 horsepower at 6600 rpm and 632 lb-ft of torque at 4400 rpm from the 2015 Ford Mustang‘s Coyote V-8. This enables the car to hit 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and pass the quarter-mile mark in 11.2 seconds at 131 mph, by Hennessey’s measurements. Saleen’s S302, for what it’s…Continue
This was probably the NUTTIEST car we encountered at the Pikes Peak Air Strip Attack - this 1170hp 101mm turbo equipped Cadillac CTS-V was turning heads everywhere it went. Hop into the passenger seat as we race down the 1/2 mile raceway at over 180 mph!
When you bet a sandwich on a race, you better be prepared to pay up if you lose! This Nitrous Outlet equipped V10 Viper gets taken down at Street Car Takeover OKC in the Drag Strip Roll Race event by "Miss Stangkilr" in this beautiful Procharged C7 Corvette
The Vette is only making 7psi on a temporary P1SC Procharger, it is around 570whp, the Viper put down 480whp and isn't spraying on this pass

In February 2014, Hot Rod Magazine invited the Big Red Camaro out to face off against Chevrolet's new 2014 Z-28 Camaro. Big Red has never been one to back down from a challenge and to pit the Generation 1 Camaro against the new Generation 5 was too good an opportunity to pass up. The Big Red team braved one of the worst ice storms on record and made the trip out to the Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama to attend the challenge. With the freezing temperatures came poor track conditions, and the new Z/28 had a huge advantage with all its modern traction control systems - Big Red had her work…Continue
In an unexpected turn of events, the Camaro Z/28's engineers noticed that the tires rotated at least a full 360 degrees on the rims during a single lap on the test track. Brembo's carbon-ceramic brake rotors can do that to you.
Chevy went for the track oriented Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires and carbon-ceramic Brembo rotors to control the 7.0 LS7's 505 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. The only problem was that the achieved 1.5 g in deceleration force also happened to be enough to slip the rims inside the tires, all the way around according to the chalk line put next to the valve stem at the beginning of a test lap.…Continue
Joel Highsmith built a Dodge Challenger with the goal of breaking the 200 mph barrier at events like the Mojave Mile. Now that dream is shattered because the car has been stolen. Let's see if we can find it.
According to Allpar and multiple concerned people who have emailed us about the case, the Challenger was taken around 7 p.m. Sunday in the parking lot of Spankin Time Motorsports in San Bernadino, California, which is located at 160 South D Street. The car was in a 39-foot black and red enclosed trailer, pictured here as well, which was believed to have been towed off by…Continue
