Stock Z06 Takes On Stock Shelby Mustang GT350 and GT500

Here’s how these un-modified American thoroughbreds fare at the drag strip

1000 horsepower fire-breathing monsters are a common sight at almost any drag strip these days, but I’m sure most people would like to know how some sports cars perform out of the box.

Well in their latest video, Wheels shows a bone stock C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 taking on a Shelby Mustang GT350 and Shelby Mustang GT500. Let’s see which one comes out on top. The showdown took place at the Mission Raceway Park up in BC, Canada.

This 1957 Coyote-Swapped Ford Thunderbird Represents The Next Step In Resto-Modding

This 1957 Coyote-Swapped Ford Thunderbird Represents The Next Step In Resto-Modding

This amazing, 1957 Ford Thunderbird will essentially become a modern car in a classic suit, once it’s complete, as it will feature a 460-horsepower Mustang V-8 and a modern chassis

Depending on who you ask, resto-mods can be a blessing or a curse. And while the purist way of keeping things in their original state is pretty self-explanatory, restoring a car with modern parts does have its advantages. The people at V8TV are no strangers to resto-mods, but today’s YouTube video is a step further from most resto-mods. It involves a beautiful, partially-restored, 1957 Ford Thunderbird, which is a family heirloom.

This time, we are looking at the fastest domestic car with a stick shift – a 1,900 horsepower Ford Mustang.

A Ford GT Test Mule Has Been Spotted Around Detroit With a Seemingly Different Engine

A Ford GT Test Mule Has Been Spotted Around Detroit With a Seemingly Different Engine

A weird-looking GT test mule was spotted recently that hints at Ford working on the rumored C8 Corvette competitor

A while back, we shared information about a C8 Corvette being benchmarked on Ford grounds, in Dearborn, Michigan. This was preceded by a trademark for the Thunderbird name, filed by Ford, in January 2021. Recent reports suggest that Ford has moved to the next step in developing a C8 rival. Ford Authority shared information about at least one Ford GT roaming around Ford test facilities. Moreover, the car spotted reportedly had a mysterious new engine that sounded nothing like the 3.5-liter V-6 EcoBoost.

How On Earth Did A Stock BMW M3 Competition Manage To Beat A Tuned Nissan Skyline GT-R And A Tuned Ford Mustang?

The M3 Competition made over 200 horses fewer than the Skyline and the Mustang and still beat them in a drag race!

Carwow is back with another drag racing video, and this time, they had a pretty interesting mix. The contenders for this race were a Ford Mustang, a Nissan Skyline, and a BMW M3. The BMW M3 was in the Competition spec and completely stock. However, the Japanese and the American weren’t. The Nissan made 750 horses whereas the Ford put out 735 ponies. The M3, on the other hand, makes a little over 500 horsepower. Which car do you think will claim the bragging rights this time?

First Ford Tried to Ruin the Mach 1 Name, Now It Wants to Ruin the Skyline Name

First Ford Tried to Ruin the Mach 1 Name, Now It Wants to Ruin the Skyline Name

Skyline is supposed to bring fond memories of certain Nissan cars, but soon that could change

One could easily argue that the Skyline name belongs to Nissan. It brings back memories of cars like the 1957 Nissan Prince Skyline and, more importantly, cars like the R32, R33, and R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R – the godfather of Godzilla itself, the current Nissan GT-R. The name has been kept alive in certain markets as a sports sedan – the same car we call the Infiniti Q50 here in the States, and now it seems a new Skyline could be coming the U.S. market. The catch? If it happens, It’s not going to wear a Nissan badge but a Ford or Lincoln badge instead.

What a Mid-Engine C8 Corvette Rival From Ford Needs To Have In Order To Stand a Chance

What a Mid-Engine C8 Corvette Rival From Ford Needs To Have In Order To Stand a Chance

A new Thunderbird might give the C8 Corvette trouble, but it needs to have a few aces up its sleeve in order to stand a chance.

The Ford vs Chevy rivalry is one of the oldest and biggest in automotive history. The two American carmakers have been going at it, across the lineup for decades. We have the Mustang vs Camaro, F-Series vs Silverado, and Bronco vs Trailblazer, but before all of those there was the Thunderbird vs C1 Corvette. And guess what, the Thunderbird wiped the floor with the Corvette, in the 1950s, outselling it 23 to 1.

What If Ford Slapped The Thunderbird Name On A Mid-Engined Competitor to the Chevy C8 Corvette?

What If Ford Slapped The Thunderbird Name On A Mid-Engined Competitor to the Chevy C8 Corvette?

Ford might be cooking up a new mid-engined car, and that means the C8 Corvette could be in danger

Ford versus Chevrolet is one of the most epic automotive rivalries we’ve come to witness. You’re probably familiar with the Mustang vs Camaro, or F-Series vs Silverado rivalries, but now an even older Ford vs Chevy rivalry could be resurrected. The mid-engine C8 Corvette is currently GM’s pride and joy and Ford doesn’t have anything to compete against it. At least not at this price range, as the Ford GT is way more expensive and produced in much lower numbers. However, it seems this might change very soon, as the Blue Oval was spotted testing a C8 on their home turf, in Dearborn.

The RC-F Track Edition is over $40,000 more expensive than the Mach-1, but features similar engine specs

Well, one of them is a true-blue American muscle, but the other is a Japanese. But, before we discount it, this car has managed to hold its fort in a segment ruled by the Mustang, the Challenger, and the Camaro. I’m talking about the Lexus RC-F.

The folks at the channel compared the Lexus RC-F Track Edition with the Mustang Mach-1 in various aspects. Which one do you think came out looking better?

The Ford Thunder - Everything You Didn't Know And Why You've Never Heard Of It

The Ford Thunder - Everything You Didn’t Know And Why You’ve Never Heard Of It

Ford SVT Thunder Expedition is the performance SUV Ford never made

Before the Ford Raptor stole the show, as Ford’s go-to performance pick-up truck, there was the Ford F150 SVT Lightning. The first-generation SVT Lightning came in 1993 and inspired other manufacturers to build their own performance pick-up trucks. In 1999, the second generation Lightning came and this is where things get interesting. At the time of the second-generation F-150 Lightning, SVT (Special Vehicles Team) worked on an SUV version of the pick-up truck. It was the Ford SVT Thunder Expedition. Sadly, it never made it to production, but that doesn’t stop us from telling you all we know about it.

Great Alternatives to the Volkswagen Golf GTI

Great Alternatives to the Volkswagen Golf GTI

Can the Volkswagen Golf GTI still manage in the increasingly crowded hot hatch market?

The Volkswagen Golf GTI is considered the forefather of the hot hatch segment. The first Golf GTI was introduced in June 1976 and has been going strong ever since. Nowadays, the Golf GTI is in its eighth generation and is still one of the best all-around performers in the segment. It’s also sold both in Europe and North America, which is not something that can be said for all the cars on the list. With that being said, the modern hot hatch scene is as dynamic as ever and many new contenders for the best hot hatch title. Here are some of the best alternatives that aim to de-throne the GTI.

We’re Willing To Bet There’s a Secret or Two That You Don’t Know About The Ford GT Heritage Edition

How many supercars come with secret cupholders?

The Ford GT is one of the most interesting supercars in the market, and it’s not just because of all the things we already know about it. The GT is also loaded with plenty of easter eggs that can only be discovered once an owner takes delivery of the car. Supercar collector Manny Khoshbin recently received his GT Heritage Edition, and the first thing he did with it was create a walkaround video with a Ford delivery specialist to learn all of the GT’s secrets.
