Check out this latest video from Hennessey Performance, showcasing their new 2014 VelociRaptor SUV based on the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor truck. If you want a truck that has it all, then look no further as the $149,500 price tag is not a joke. It features a 6.2-liter V8 powerplant that has been supercharged from the factory 411 bhp, to now produce a whopping 600 bhp. This allows the sporty truck as we may say, to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.9 seconds which is 1.6 seconds faster than the stock version.
Now this is why you do not race through traffic, even if you own a Subaru STi or other well designed sports car. This stupid kid thought weaving in and out of traffic at nearly 200 km/h would somehow be safe? At first you notice some near crash chances, but then once in the tunnel the light at the end makes it impossible to see. Of course there were about 50 cars backed up at the end, so he plows through 10 or more cars causing tons of damage and possibly hurting some people at those speeds. This is just a reminder that if you own a sports car, think about the others on the road first before trying to race through traffic. Instead, take your car to the track and really find out its true potential before destroying it for one minute of “fun” with your friends.
In the style stakes, the Audi R8 is a classic supercar with a hefty price tag, but when it comes down to performance it does what it says to the tin, and drives beautifully at top speeds on the race track. If you’re looking to buy new, the coupe model starts at £91,575 with the open-top Spyder model tipping the scales at well over £100,000. Certainly worth a visit to www.carshop.co.uk for price comparisons of used car models, reviews, security and insurance advice for such a prestigious investment, in some cases a high performance supercar can cost as much as a small property. With a seven speed dual transmission clutch, the R8 has smoother handling and great traction on the road coupled with a stylish interior. A two-seater model with the finest Nappa leather interior, no expense has been spared on the upholstery and in car features like built in satellite navigation, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity.
Check out the video after the jump of the most powerful Mitsubishi EVO X that just set a new record with 908 AWHP. It destroyed the most recent EVO X by more than 90 horsepower to the wheels, so there is no denying this will hold the crown for quite some time. Most people wouldn’t even think it’s possible to get close to 1,000 HP to the wheels out of a 2.0-liter four cylinder. This owner proves anything is possible when you turn up the boost and risk blowing the engine. However, he can now say he owns the baddest Mitsubishi EVO X in the world!
The people of New York along with all the tourists that frequently roam the streets were in for a treat the other day. On a trip through Times Square people spotted some rare cars and even a Batmobile replica. This comes shortly after the Colorado shooting for the new Dark Knight film which we are very sorry for the event that occurred that evening. Meanwhile, spectators in New York were able to feast their eyes on a new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 that was wrapped in chrome and is most likely the first of its kind.
