Monster Madness!


We’ve seen some incredible machines as of late; a twin turbo M5 M3, an LS9-powered Camaro, even a 2700 horsepower F150! But this one probably takes the cake as the meanest, fastest street machine around; its a 94 Mustang Cobra powered by a Viper’s 8-liter V10, which is force fed by a couple of T-76 turbos.  Some modification was needed to make everything fit, including moving the firewall back 10 inches and custom fabricating engine mounts and suspension linkages.

This has all taken months of work, but the day has finally come to turn the key.  Listen and enjoy this deep hiss of this Cobra.

Speaking of Godzilla

The Nurburgring recently opened back up, inviting auto manufacturers to test out their latest and greatest. The first super car of the year to run around the track is none other that the 2010 Nissan GTR. Last year it, the GTR ran a 7 minute and 29 second lap around the Ring, besting a slew of other super cars, including every car that Porsche makes. This is an amazing lap time which not only sparked a super car war, but it even had Porsche investigate the claim, purchase a GTR, fail at driving it and issue press releases saying it was a hoax.

Well Nissan has lapped the Ring again, this time in a 2010 GTR that has a revised double-clutch transmission, bigger fuel tank, 5 more ponies and some shoes borrowed from the optional Nissan Spec-V wheel/tire setup. Their official lap time of the day; 7:27.56.  That’s quite a lot faster, but still a full second short of the ZR-1 and 5 seconds behind the Viper ACR. Nissan engineers say the track has some dust and sand on it today which limitted the grip. They will be testing out the J-Spec GTR tomorrow with the hopes of claiming the second fastest production car lap time on the ‘Ring.  Stay tuned, more Godzilla drama to follow.

Unofficial: Dodge Viper ACR is the new King of the Nurburgring


The Dodge Viper ACR has gotten a lot of press from car magazines and blogs lately, and for good reason.  The Viper ACR is a wolf in sheeps clothing, a street-legal racecar that was built for pure speed.  It looks like all of Dodge’s hard work has paid off because it ran around the Ring in 7.22:1!  Motor Trend has a video to prove the run, however, the time is still considered “unofficial” because it was only timed by the manufacturer and not any of the lap officials.  Enjoy the video!
