Hoonigan Puts Two Fast & Furious Homage Cars On The Dyno To See What Power They Make
Hoonigan shows some love for the original Fast & Furious movie by hosting a "Dyno war" at throtl’s dyno where two cars, inspired by the 2001 Fast & Furious movie, put down some epic numbers, worthy of the franchise. Hoonigan brings their Ford F-150 "Frightening", which is a parts bin special with a 2JZ swap while throtl brings out a 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX, modified to look like Brian O’Conner’s original car. This one, however, is the real deal, so it should be interesting to see what power it makes. Hopefully, no "danger to manifold" signs pop up.
The Toyota GR Yaris With Straight Pipes Sounds Like An Epic Mix Between BMW M3 And Alfa Romeo Giulia QV
The Toyota GR Yaris is one of the most bonkers hot hatchbacks to come out in recent times. This Japanese pocket rocket is, actually, a homologation rally car, and although Toyota hasn’t managed to go racing with it, just yet, the GR Yaris already proved quicker than some of the most iconic cars, ever made. Its small, turbocharged, inline-three has one of the highest specific outputs, but, what you didn’t know is how it sounds with straight pipes.
Formula Drift BMW M2 Attempts To Go Fast In a Straight Line, But A BMW 318is Time Attack Monster Has Something To Say About It
Hoonigan’s “This vs That” has given us some of the most epic drag race battle, we have ever seen. If a build is crazy fast and weird, it’s bound to show up on their channel, and this time, we have two very different BMWs squaring off against each other. The first bonkers machine is a BMW M2 Formula Drift car while the second one is a BMW E36, built specifically for Time Attack. Neither of the cars is meant to race on a drag strip, so it should be very interesting.
This 1,700-HP Foxbody Is The Rowdiest 1993 Mustang Cobra R You Have Ever Seen
A 1993 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R is something of a collector’s car, which is why seeing heavily-modified examples like this one, is quite rare. However, the horsepower junkies at Addiction Motorsports don’t care about collecting cars, which is why they’ve turned the red ’93 Cobra into a one-of-a-kind, 1,700-horsepower dragstrip-slaying Foxbody Cobra.
The Mercury Marauder Makes A Comeback As A Blacked-out Lincoln Continental
When it comes to early-2000s American performance sedans, the Mercury Marauder is one of the first to come to mind. Produced in 2003 and 2004 (in its last iteration), Marauder was based on the otherwise mundane Ford Crown Vitoria, along with the Lincoln Town Car, all of which were based on Ford’s Panther platform. Since the 2016 Lincoln Continental is the closest relative to either of those, graphic designer, jlord8 has used the luxury sedan to recreate the Marauder in our time.
2022 Datsun 240Z "The Lion’s Rock Commission" By MZR Roadsports
It’s always nice when there is a company, specializing in restoring and reimagining a certain model. In this case, it’s the team from MZR Roadsports, and their choice of car is the Datsun 240Z – a Japanese icon with a global fan base. What the U.K.-based outfit is doing can best be described as a classic car with a modern twist. It’s safe to say, MZR Roadsports is for Datsun 240Z, what Singer is for Porsche 911, and this is the company’s take on what the perfect 240Z should be.
This 1977 Ford F-100 Pre-Runner Is An Epic, Sreet-legal Trophy Truck
AutotopiaLA is back with what is, arguably, the most outrageous build on the channel – a 1977 Ford F-100 Pre-Runner. What makes this truck special is not only the fact that it survived a roll-over accident, but also that it is a V-8-powered, street-legal trophy truck that loves to hang in the air.
The 1969 Ford Mustang "Anvil" From Fast And Furious 6 Is Alive And Looks Gorgeous
When it comes to classic American muscle cars, the Ford Mustang is among the most iconic names in the history of fast American cars. The Mustang, like other iconic muscle cars, has been immortalized in cinema, and you may remember this particular example from the Fast 6. The 1969 Ford Mustang “Anvil” may be a movie star, but it’s not an “all-show, no-go” situation like with many movie cars. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.
Say Hello To The Most Hideous Mercedes S-Class Ever Conceived
Indian tuners have given us some very interesting and ambitious projects. Remember, the Hyundai Accent-based 1969 Ford Mustang or the Honda Civic Si-based Lamborghini Aventador, made by Dream Customs India? While those are some of the better projects we have seen from India, the one we are showing you now is a bit disturbing. The imagery comes from an Indian blogger that goes by Shiva and shows what was once a W126 Mercedes S-Class, in a very neglected state.
Probably The Most Bonkers Hoonigan Drag Race Ever: 573 CID Chevy K5 Jimmy Vs 2JZ Ford F-150 "Frightening"
To say Hoonigan’s drag races are epic is an understatement. For a while, we have been seeing some of the most insane showdowns with some of the weirdest builds ever, but this one takes things even further. It may look like a classic Ford versus Chevrolet duel, but there’s a twist. Hoongan’s very own homage to the Fast & Furious, Ford F-150 Lightning, driven by Paul Walker goes up against an all-American, insanely loud Chevy K5 Jimmy Big Block V-8.
Ford GT40 by Ruffian Cars Is An Homage To The 1966 Ford GT
Modern performance cars have a tough job replicating the feel and presence of iconic models, a case in point being the Ford GT40. Ford, itself, has been trying to come up with a proper successor for about half a century before coming up with the 2005 Ford GT and later the 2017 Ford GT. Chris from “Ruffian Cars”, however, may have come up with the best homage to the 1960s legend, with his 1966 Ford GT40-inspired, all-carbon-fiber, wide-body creation, presented by AutoTopiaLA.
This Custom 1956 Chevrolet 3100 Stepside Will Not See Any Haystacks In Its Bed
Custom cars are awesome, but what’s even crazier is custom pick-up trucks, especially when they are from the 1950s. A perfect example of that is this 1956 Chevrolet 3100 Sidestep, built by “Customs by Lopez”. While the Chevy 3100 was part of the Chevy Task Force, also known as the “Blue Chip Series” in GMC dealerships, it started out as a humble, but rugged work truck. However, it has been transformed into a mean, rubber-burning machine.
A Widebody Porsche 996 Slant Nose Makes For An Epic Homage To The Porsche 935
It seems the Porsche 996’s rise in desirability has made it a go-to platform for exciting builds. We recently talked about an epic collaboration between Porsche Club of America and Porsche Classic, which spawned the Porsche 996 Classic Club Coupe. From Crucible Coachworks, Pennsylvania comes another epic 996 project. The slant nose was a distinct option for classic 911s and this 996 makes full use of the design, along with a 935-inspired body kit.
1965 Shelby Carbon Cobra To Commemorate Six Decades Of An American Icon
Classic Recreations has come up with an 800-horsepower Shelby Cobra in full carbon attire for Shelby American’s 60th birthday. Only ten examples of the 800-horsepower two-seater will be produced. Each of these track-only cars will set you back a whopping $1.2 million.
2022 Porsche 911 Carrera "GT3 RS 97" Concept Study by DMC
Very few high-performance carmakers have a heritage as proud as Porsche, especially when it comes to the company’s pride and joy - the 911. It’s no surprise, then, that plenty of tuners are enthusiastic about reimagining the 911, and DMC is one of the latest examples. The Dusseldorf-based tuner is currently working on a complete package for the Porsche 992 Carrera, the visual part of which is now complete brings back some of Porsche’s signature elements that harken back to the 997 GT3 RS.
