Hello guys, it’s been a while, but we are back on the track! And today we want to show you a video, capturing the fastest Lamborghini we’ve ever seen – 2005 hp, taking the mile at 402 km/h … on fire!
During the recent Unlim 500+ class event at the Moscow Mile, were all the big boys gather, but this Lambo Gallardo brought the house down with the fastest ever time at the event.
As impressive as reaching the Bugatti Veyron’s top speed in just one mile is, the video is most impressive because it shows what the driver went through as he realized he was in danger – the Russian driver is panicking to get his multi-point seatbelt off even as the car is still rolling. His cabin is rapidly filling with smoke, but fortunately the fire isn’t as serious as it initially seemed. Watch the video on Read more!
We, from Muscle Cars World think that Vossen have set the bar very high with nice wheels. Most people will fall in love with their projects and we are glad to feature them anytime we can.
Today’s favourite are the new Vossen’s CVTDirectional wheels. These wheels are something the competition is going to have a hard time topping. This new type of wheels are directional. They’ve been fitted to a crisp new Ford Mustang 5.0bbin十大平台网 and the featured combo is amazing.
We are sure these wheels will look sick on every other modern muscle car, but Vossen picked this Mustang to showcase their amazing CVT directional – a very nice wheel, both sharp-lined and light in design. Click on Read more for video and photos!
Well, the Camaro you are about to see is definitely the one you expect – it’s a Hello Kitty-themed Camaro, prepared by ReStyleIt. Back in the days, Dodge and Plymouth used to offer two intriguing pink-ish exterior paints on vehicles such as the Charger, the Cuda or the Dart. They were called Moulin Rouge and Panther Pink, and they were extremely cool.
The theme on this Camaro is very … distinctive and we really would like to know what were the guys over at ReStyleIt thinking of when they created it. Take a look at the front fender badges, the pink rear diffuser and the Hello Kitty exhaust- a Hello Kitty-shaped pipes with whiskers attached to them. This is very … brave decision, which you won’t see in any other Camaro.
Hello Kitty Chevrolet Camaro originally came in the red exterior finish underwent full body color change, including the door jambs. Gloss white became the base color before the hot pink accents completed the final look. Click on Read more for photos.

This is the first customer-owned, production 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray to be tested down the 1/4 mile dragstrip. As far as we know, it is bone stock. Factory stock equipment includes: Automatic transmission, Z51 & 3LT packages. VBox acceleration testing showed acceleration from 0-60 mph in 4.15 sec. and 0-100 mph in 9.50 sec.
The tests were performed by Hennessey at Lonestar Motorsports Park near Houston, Texas. Density altitude was 2742 ft when this car ran down the track. What’s for sure is that there will be more more testing of the new Vette by the team at Hennessey Performancebbin十大平台网 coming soon.
The Texas-based specialist has already announced plans to develop a number upgraded Corvettes, but, for the time being, the carbbin十大平台网 Hennessey tested completed the 402 in 12.23 seconds at 114 mph (183 km/h). It would probably do better with a manual gearbox, but that doesn’t make the 12-second run less impressive.
As a reminder, Hennessey is readying four packages for the 2014 Corvette, with power ratings ranging from 600 to 1,100 horsepower and prices between $12,495 and $67,950. This means we could be watching a 10-second Corvette by the end of the year. Check out the video on Read more!
Mecum Auctions is taking the gavel to Chicago this Oct. 10-12 with 1,000 vehicles expected to cross the block at the breathtaking Schaumburg Convention Center. The lineup is already fraught with headline-worthy consignments including the most famous wheel-standers in drag racing history– the Hurst Hemi Under Glass Collection – as well as the one-of-a-kind, factory-styling Corvette gifted to Harley J. Earl, a man often considered to be one of the most significant innovators in the history of the American automobile.
For all who don’t know, the Hurst Hemi Under Glass Collection is a group of four Barracuda-based powerhouses built by Bob Riggle that appeared as crowd-thrilling wheel-standers at major events across North America from 1965-75 and then again from 1992 until 2009. Each of the four cars is built with the same over-sized engine in the rear, visible beneath the back window, hence their “Hemi Under Glass” moniker. The excessive power of the engines coupled with the uneven weight distribution allows the cars to scream down the track in excess of 100 mph with noses skyward and sparks flying from their track-skimming rear ends. Offered together as one lot from the Bill Sefton Collection, these history-making cars are still fully capable of thrilling any car-loving crowd. Bob Riggle and Hurst’s famous “Shifter Girl” Linda Vaughn will be onsite to sign autographs during the auction. Read more!
