When it comes to beefed-up Mustangs, no pony compares to Ken Block’s Hoonicorn. Sure, he uses the heavily modified 1965 Mustang for a lot of drifting, but it’s insanely powerful and, as a result, insanely fast too. How fast? Well, it can put a Ford GT Carbon Edition supercar to shame.

Why Wouldn't You Watch This Showdown Between the McLaren Senna and 720S?

Why Wouldn’t You Watch This Showdown Between the McLaren Senna and 720S?

Two cars from the same automaker, using the same engine and transmission, but with different sets of pros and cons; who will win?

There are thousands of drag races online, but this one from DragTimes has caught our attention this time. It’s an epic race between the McLaren 720S and the McLaren Senna on a drag strip. The Senna is the third addition in the automaker’s Ultimate Series, joining the F1 and the P1. Seeing the specs, you might declare the Senna to be the winner in this drag race competition.

The BMW M5 Competition Can Take On the Ferrari 488 Pista With $8000 In Mods

This is a drag race you want to watch

The BMW M5 Competition F90 is one of the most incredible cars in the market. While it’s technically a luxury sedan — and a heavy one at that — the M5 Competition F90 boasts enough power to drive like a supercar.

Put the high-powered M5 into the hands of a tuner like Evolve Tuning, and the sedan’s performance potential goes to levels unseen, or at least in the vicinity of one of the most potent Ferraris around: the 488 Pista. YouTube channel Carwow brought these two powerhouses together for an explosive drag race and, well, fireworks ensue.

Three-Way BMW M Race Will Leave you Longing for the Past

Three-Way BMW M Race Will Leave you Longing for the Past

The BMW M3 E46 and the BMW M3 E36 take on the new BMW M2 Competition

The BMW M3 E46 is considered one of the greatest driving machines of all time, and its predecessor, the BMW M3 E36, wasn’t that far behind. The two M3s from yesteryear are largely responsible for turning BMW’s M division into a household name. That legacy lives to this day now that the all-new M3 G80 has arrived.

But this isn’t about the M3 G80 or its roots to both the E36 and E46. This is about the two M3 legends taking on a different M car: the equally all-new BMW M2 Competition.

Chasing Whales: BMW X7 M50i Drag Races Mercedes-AMG G 63

Chasing Whales: BMW X7 M50i Drag Races Mercedes-AMG G 63

Is the less powerful BMW X7 M50i quicker than the Mercedes-AMG G 63?

A few years ago drag racing used to be a thing for muscle cars and supercars, as was development at the Nurburgring. Nowadays, most vehicles, including performance SUVs, are being tested on race tracks before production starts, and we can also see them running quarter-mile races.

Are drag races relevant for a massive, full-size SUV? Not really. But people still do it, simply because it’s fun. If you ever wondered how the Mercedes-AMG G 63 and the BMW X7 M50i compare in straight-line racing, the folks over at Track Day just ran a test.

The BMW M5 and Nissan GT-R Try to Tame a Ducati Panigale V4R in a Drag Race for the Ages

This is a race you wouldn’t dare miss

A heavily tuned BMW M5 Competition and Nissan GT-R would make for a tremendous race. Both models are already revered for their performance capabilities, but when you throw in the element of the aftermarket world into the mix, well, let’s just say that fireworks are expected.

We get to see these two heavy hitters in that environment courtesy of Carwow, but this particular race isn’t just between the M5 Competition and the GT-R. A third participant is involved, and it’s one of the most feared two-wheeled killers in the market: the Ducati Panigale V4R. This is a three-vehicle competition, and the stakes just went to the next level. Does the Panigale V4R have a chance against a heavily tuned M5 Competition and a souped-up Godzilla or is it going to fall flat on its face?

Drag Race Battle - Ferrari 812 Superfast Versus Tesla Model X P100D

Drag Race Battle - Ferrari 812 Superfast Versus Tesla Model X P100D

Old school takes on the new school!

On paper, an SUV should have no business competing against a supercar in a drag race. But the cars in question, a Ferrari 812 Superfast and a Tesla Model X P100D, aren’t exactly too far apart in the performance category. One produces 588 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque, while the other has 790 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of torque on tap. Line them side-by-side on a drag strip and the question of who wins isn’t as ridiculous as it sounds. In the end, such a race took place at the Drag Times home track of Palm Beach International Raceway. As for which car won? Watch the video and find out.

There's No Way The Toyota Supra Can Beat The Lexus LC500 In a Drag Race, Right?

There’s No Way The Toyota Supra Can Beat The Lexus LC500 In a Drag Race, Right?

More power doesn’t always translate to faster on the road, or does it?

On paper, the Lexus LC500 and the Toyota Supra are two entirely different performance cars. One is a stylish and luxurious two-door grand tourer while the other is an outright performance-bred sports car that also serves as Toyota’s flagship performance car.

We’ve seen some odd pairings engage in drag races in the past — most recently, there was one between a Hennessy-tuned Chevrolet Corvette C8 and a Rolls-Royce Wraith — and this one follows along that path. Does the turbocharged Toyota have what it takes to beat the naturally aspirated V-8-powered Lexus? YouTube channel Throttle House tried to find out, and the results, well, will surprise you.

This Blinged-out Tesla Model X Runs a Quarter-Mile Faster Than a Porsche Carrera GT

This Model X goes through a drastic weight reduction and takes less than 11 seconds to complete the quarter-mile race!

Tesla cars have embarrassed some of the most loved supercars on drag strips for a long time now. With every new performance update, things just keep getting better. It’s funny how effortlessly these EVs receive a power bump, when internal combustion engine cars, on the other hand, have to spend a lot of time in the garage and get new parts and other upgrades.

Despite Tesla offering continuous updates, people are not content. Well, that’s the case with every enthusiast. We just can’t have enough. So, this new Tesla Model X went through some old-school faster-off-the-line techniques to breach the 11-second quarter-mile record to become the quickest production SUV in the world right now. How about that!

A Decade Apart: Manual 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S vs. 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera S

A Decade Apart: Manual 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S vs. 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera S

The Porsche 911 gets better by the generation and here’s the hard proof

With every new 911 generation, Porsche doesn’t forget to mention that it is the best 911 to date and equally important, the best 911 it can be at the moment of launch. This, however, doesn’t make past-gen 911s weak, for the simple reason that Porsche wholeheartedly invest all its know-how into its core sportscar, regardless of the age they came to be.

So when Throttle House dropped a video that compares the current 2020 911 to the 2010 911, our interest piqued.

Kick Off Your Weekend By Watching an Audi R8 Take on an Audi TT RS-R

This sibling rivalry suddenly becomes more competitive

On paper, the stock Audi TT RS is no match to the Audi R8 V-10 Plus. One car is powered by a 2.5-liter TFSI engine that produces 394 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the other car packs a 5.2-liter FSI V-10 engine that produces 610 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque.

You can’t dispute those figures, especially when you race both Audis against each other. So why did Carwow bother to race a TT RS against an R8 V10 Plus? The answer is the TT RS-R, the heavily modified version of the sports coupe.
