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 Greatest Ford Factory Race Cars From The 1960s
Ford, like other manufacturers in the 1960s, wanted to appeal to young car enthusiasts, by giving them souped-up versions of their regular models meant for drag and oval racing. Motorsport was still a popular way for carmakers to advertise themselves and their cars and the “win on Sunday, sell on Monday” mindset was still going strong, which spawned a variety of Ford homologation cars, available to the general public. Not long ago, we covered GM’s approach to factory race cars and Ford, naturally, responded with these hot versions of its cars.
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.
Watch The Ford Fusion Sport Destroy a Dodge Charger On The Drag Strip
It’s always interesting to see how two stock or mildly modified vehicles stack up against one another in a drag race. Our fellow Canadian car enthusiast, Sam CarLegion has gathered two entry-level sedans with V-6 engines in order to find out who’s quickest. We have a Dodge Charger on one side and a Ford Fusion on the other. Both vehicles have all-wheel drive and V-6 engines, but that’s where the similarities end.
Drag Battle: Kia Stinger GT With a Tune Messes With a ROUSH Ford Mustang GT
When the Kia Stinger came out in 2017, it changed many people’s perceptions of the Korean brand. It also turned out to be a very quick car that responds very well to minor modifications. With this in mind, YoUTube channel Sam CarLegion has arranged for a tuned Kia Stinger GT to show up on the drag strip. However, it’s not going to run by itself, as it is joined by a ROUSH-modified Ford Mustang GT.
This 2022 Ford Puma Hybrid Rally1 Will Give Hyundai Lots Of Headaches

Ken Block’s Hoonicorn Vs Tesla Model S Plaid Is An Epic Drag Battle
Hoonigan’s YouTube channel returns with another “Hoonicorn versus the world” episode and this time it’s all on the line because the mighty Hoonicorn goes up against a Tesla Model S Plaid – the bane of many high-performance, combustion-powered vehicles. So far the Lia Block – Ken Block’s, 14-year old daughter - has been crushing it, losing only to a 2,000 horsepower Nissan GT-R. Will Tesla take another scalp or will the Hoonicorn finally put it in its place?
Ford Vs Ferrari: Hoonigan Style
Hoonigan has been staging some of the craziest drag races, seen on YouTube. As part of the channel’s “This vs That” series, we now get “Hoonicorn vs the World” – a series of drag battles, where Ken Block’s teenage daughter – Lia Block – who is only 14, rocks the 1,400-horsepower Mustang, known as the Hoonicorn. In the previous episode, Lia Block raced an NHRA C6 Corvette and now, she’s going up against a Hoonicorn-inspired, 2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta twin-turbo.
Ford Mustang GT Gen3 Supercar Looks Ready To Take On The 2023 Repco Supercars Championship
Ever since the fifth-generation Ford Mustang was launched back in 2015, the muscle car proved itself of being quite a successful race car. During its six-year lifetime, the current Mustang won many racing series, putting the Chevrolet Camaro in second place.
Ford announced the next-generation Mustang GT Gen3 Supercar at Mount Panorama, right before the 2021 Bathurst 1000. Both the Mustang Supercar and the Camaro did a series of display laps during the race before getting ready for an intense testing session throughout 2022.
This Bronco 4600 Ultra4 Is What The Bronco Was Meant to Be From The Start
Ford has unveiled the Bronco 4600 race truck series that will take part in the Ultra4 Class races. This comes following the three 4400 rally class Broncos that the automaker showcased earlier this week. The Bronco 4600 will not be street legal, of course, but it comes with a plethora of equipment that can make you go weak in the knees. Ford has noted that it will be based on the two-door Bronco with the V-6 engine.
Ford Could Give Us a Mustang GT3 Instead of an LMDh Prototype
Ford quit the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship and the FIA World Endurance Championship at the end of 2019 when its successful GT race car built to the GTE regulations was parked. Now, as GTE is nearing the end of its lifespan, at least in North America, Ford is looking at fielding a
based GT3 car in the future although the option to build an LMDh prototype that could fight for outright wins at Le Mans, Daytona, and Sebring isn’t completely off the table either.
You May See the Ford Bronco R Baja Racer Again Soon
Ford surprised a lot of people by entering the Bronco’s prototype at last year’s Baja 100 race. As a marketing strategy, it paid off even if it failed to finish the race. People kept talking about it for a long time, even though they weren’t good things. Ford’s Communications Manager, Mike Levine, had tweeted after the Bronco R’s unsuccessful stint that Ford will be back for next year’s event; and, guess what? The company is staying true to its words.
Ford recently admitted that the automaker is open to selling the Bronco R as a turnkey project truck to race teams as long as people are willing to buy it. Will it be successful in its second attempt?
