Audi 100 Coupe S/GT - Is This The Muscle Car That Audi Never Gave Us?
A 1972 Audi 100 Coupé S/GT, rebuilt by Niklas Frisk from Sweden, has now been restored to its former glory as a sporty vehicle for everyone to appreciate. He meticulously recreated the Audi Coupé that we see here, making a few subtle changes that have dramatically altered the looks of the car. For instance, several metal body pieces are from Volkswagen, with some parts also sourced from a motorcycle. It took 5,000 hours of relentless effort to painstakingly recreate this masterpiece.
When An F1 Car Takes On A Tuned Lamborghini Huracan and a Tuned Nissan GT-R, It’s Nothing But Chaos!
The folks at Carwow uploaded yet another drag racing video, but this time threw an unusual contender in the mix against two supercars. The Lamborghini Huracan and the Nissan GT-R are pit against a Formula 1 car on the drag strip! To make sure things aren’t lopsided, the Huracan and the GT-R are tuned to make 1,200- and 1,300 horses combined! Do they stand a chance against the F1 car?
Watch Four Micro EVs Drag Race For What Seems an Eternity
It’s clear that EVs are already a big part of modern-day motoring. It seems another endeavor is to make personal transportation more accessible for younger people. One of these cars, in particular, can be driven by 14-year-olds, which is a bit worrying. Our colleagues from “What Car” present the four contenders. These are Citroen AMI, Renault Twizy, Micro Electric, and Reva G-Wiz. The actual race starts at 4:00, in case you want to skip straight to it.
The Ford Bronco Is No Match For The Jeep Wrangler 4xe In Drag Races
The Ford Bronco has been at the Wrangler’s throat ever since it was conceptualized. Targeted to take it on from all the sides, the Bronco came out all guns blazing. However, Jeep has made some smart and methodical strikes to some of Bronco’s most vulnerable areas that have skewed the results back in balance. For starters, there was the announcement of the V-8 Wrangler hours before the Bronco’s much-anticipated debut. Then there was the adoption of electrification in the form of the Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid. While you can get the V-8 conversion, you can’t get a plug-in hybrid setup installed on the Bronco, thus giving the edge to the Jeep product.
While the off-roading prowess of the Bronco is as good as – if not better – than the Wrangler 4xe, the on-road performance is not. To test this out, the folks at The Fast Lane Car decided to test this out by pitting the two for a series of straight-line races.
This 85-Horsepower Superkart Almost Put A 710-Horsepower Ferrari 488 Pista To Shame
The Ferrari 488 Pista is no joke. It makes over 700 horses from its V-8 mill and can sprint to 60 mph from rest in under three seconds. With these specs, you’d expect it to take on the best of the best in straight-line races. But, ‘Driven Media’ had other thoughts and decided to pit it against an unlikely competitor – a superkart. On paper, it’s no match to the Prancing Horse, but on the drag strip, the Ferrari faced stiff competition from it. Sounds insane, doesn’t it?
This Vertical Climb Shows You Exactly How Impressive The Rivian R1S Is Off The Road!
Rivian has been around for a long time now and we know almost everything about its upcoming products, the R1S SUV and the R1T pickup truck. They are essentially the same product in two different body styles. While the deliveries of the products have still not begun, Rivian has been teasing a lot of new specs and technology lately. The company’s CEO, RJ Scaringe, recently tweeted a 25-second video of the R1S successfully attempting a steep climb in Moab, Utah. Now, whether you like it or not, this is mighty impressive!
This Dodge Demon Proves Why Big Wheels and Low-Pro Tires Have No Place On the Drag Strip
The Demon is essentially a drag racer based on the Dodge Challenger platform. Dodge made this beast for those people who wanted more from the Challenger Hellcat. A Supercharged V-8 is the appropriate engine of choice for the Challenger. Due to high demand, Dodge built a limited number of Dodge Demon’s that took the Hellcat equation and pushed it to a new dimension.

Superwagon vs Hot Sedan: Watch The Audi RS6 Take On The BMW M550i In Straight-line Races
The Audi RS6 is a supercar trapped in a family-hauler’s body. The V-8 engine makes 600 horses in this iteration and can sprint to 60 mph from rest in under four seconds! The wagon has proved time and again that you can have just one vehicle that can do family and work duties during the week and fulfill the adrenaline cravings over the weekends. It again arrived at a drag strip, courtesy of CarWow, to take on a sedan that’s overshadowed by the BMW M5 – the M550i. The M550i is a tamed version of the M5 and doesn’t get enough recognition. But, here’s a chance for the car to prove itself against a recognized drag strip champion, the Audi RS6. Which German do you think will win?
Can a 500 Horsepower Genesis G70 Take On a 600 Horsepower R33 Nissan Skyline GT-R?
Yes, it’s another drag race, courtesy of the YouTube channel “Hoonigan”. This one is a bit odd, as we have two cars, we never expected to see go head to head. On one side, we have a Genesis G70 3.3 twin-turbo that’s literally brand new. On the other side, we have a “barely stock” R33 Skyline GT-R. It’s all or nothing for the GT-R as its title for the best tuner car is on the line. The Genesis is down on power and heavier. Does that mean it’s going to be humiliated? Let’s find out.

Watch 1,450 Horses Get Unleashed On A Drag Strip In This Epic Mercedes vs BMW battle
Mercedes came up with an AMG C63 Black Series almost a decade back. The team at Carwow brought it to the drag strip to take on an F80 BMW M3. Both these vehicles, however, are tuned and make 1,450 horses combined. While the BMW features a pair of hybrid turbos, the Mercedes features a supercharged under the hood. They go up against each other in a series of rolling and drag races. Which tuned car do you think will win the showdown?
This Tesla Model S Plaid Roars And Grunts Like A Dodge Hellcat!
Switching to EVs isn’t just the next step into the future. It’s a friggin’ paradigm shift. One of the things that is putting off a lot of people is how silent EVs are. If you’ve been driving an internal combustion-engined car for decades, EVs will disappoint you in the aural department. While many governments have mandated that EVs come with external speakers to notify pedestrians about the EV approaching them, Tesla has taken this to the next level.
Tesla allows you to use any soundtrack for the external speakers, and YouTuber Brooks Weisblat from Drag Times showcases the same on his Tesla Model S Plaid. In his latest video, he has enabled the Dodge Hellcat’s sound on his Plaid and it is weirdly incomprehensible to us.
BMW’s Return to The Big Grille Actually Dates Back to 1996 and This 7 Series Concept Proves It
The topic of BMW’s large kidney grille is still a much-debated one. The prolonged grille design is actually a design cue that dates back to the 1930s, with cars like the 1936 BMW 328. Now, the long kidney grills have made a return, with most of BMW’s current lineup proudly wearing it (or shamefully, depending on how you’re looking at it). However, BMW’s recent decision to bring back this grille design isn’t as recent as you may think. Back in 1996, Joji Nagashima – the exterior designer behind the E36 and E90 3 Series came up with an interesting concept that paved the way for the controversial E65 7er. It was called the ZBF 7er and was the first concept to bring back the long kidney grille.
