Ken Miles’ Son Takes the Ford GT 40 Heritage Edition Around Daytona
This Bugatti-Powered Ford Mustang Is Freaky Cool, But Crowds Better Watch Out
The Mustang has always been one of the most talked-about cars on the internet. Whether because of its movie stardom, relative affordability, performance versions, being a crowd magnet, or simply because it’s in the hands of people who can’t drive and crash, the Mustang is one of the most celebrated cars in automotive history. Its 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 is also capable of a very solid 460 horsepower and 390 pound-feet (530 Nm). For 2020, the GT’s V-8 received dual fuel injection, revised intake runners, and larger valves, making it even more tuner-friendly. YouTube channel “Palm Beach Dyno” shows us exactly that.
Hoonigan’s 2JZ Supra-Swapped Ford F-150 Frightening Has Sprung to Life
The yesteryear Ford F-150 Lightning was one heck of a truck, especially in its second generation. It came with a supercharged V-8 mill that was officially the world’s fastest production truck at that time, hitting a top speed of 147 mph in a run in 2003. Now, no one in their right minds would swap this engine for something else, but the folks at Hoonigan did; and we love it!
Presenting, the Ford F-150 Frightening: an SVT Lightning that’s now powered by the 2JZ engine from the Toyota Supra. The team took it to a dyno, and the results are quite impressive for a shop truck.
This Twin-Turbo Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Is Downright Ridiculous
The Ford Mustang Shelby 500 is the poster child for modern-day muscle car performance, but Ford Performance could have pushed it easily into supercar territory. What’s my basis for that statement? Well, I’m about to show you a video of a 1,250-horsepower Shelby GT500 that will absolutely decimate just about anything on the track.
Is The Lexus RC-F Track Edition Any Better Than The Mustang Mach-1?
Amidst all the buzz surrounding electrification, the guys at TheStraightPipes brought in two muscle cars for an epic V-8 showdown. 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?
This Supercharged Lowrider ’68 F-100 Is Absolutely Droolworthy
The world can never have enough lowrider trucks, especially if they’re vintage and are customized tastefully. Autotopia recently covered a customized 1968 F-100 that looks great and features a Mustang V-8 crate engine. The truck was originally a magazine project for Classic Trucks, but went on sale last year and was purchased at an auction by the current owner. Looks neat, doesn’t it?

The Story of Fordlandia - One of Henry Ford’s Bounciest Failures
Buried deep into the Brazilian jungle sit the remains of what was once Henry Ford’s utopian city. A place where one of the richest and most influential men on the planet wanted not to make money, but to - quote - help develop that wonderful and fertile land.
And I can tell you right now that Henry Ford definitely didn’t make any money out of his dream city. In fact, it turned out to be one of his biggest failures - but we’ll get to that later. So keep reading to find out the story of Fordlandia, an American attempt at making an American rubber factory and an American-style community in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon.
The Ford Thunder - Everything You Didn’t Know And Why You’ve Never Heard Of It
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.
Dodge Durango Hellcat Takes On A Shelby GT500 - Does AWD Give the SUV an Edge?
Hennessey Performance had two new visitors at its facility, both of which came to be tuned up to around 1,000 horses. One was a family SUV with a sports car alter ego called the Dodge Durango Hellcat, and the other one was a two-door, rear-wheel-drive sports car from Shelby called the GT500. Both makoverof 700 horses and took under four seconds to 60 mph from rest. These are the stock specs, in case you were wondering. So, before they were injected with steroids, the folks at Hennessey decided to race the two of them because, well, why not! Who do you think will win?

This $350,000 Ford Ranger with a Chevy Big Block is Not For The Faint-Hearted
Resto-mod operations are fun, but this one here is some next-level shiz. What started as a third-gen Ford Ranger has been converted into a $350,000 truck that can handle anything thrown at it. It comes with a ton of off-road equipment, massive tires, and a big-block Chevy mill. This build was posted on AutotopiaLA’s YouTube channel and comes from a California-based tuner, RJ Fabrication.
Ford Mach-E Vs. A Rocket?
Ford Motor Company’s official YouTube channel recently came up with a very interesting way to boast about the Mach-E’s electric range. Ford’s EV has an EPA range of 300 miles (483 km). When you consider that just a decade ago, most EVs were struggling to squeeze 100 miles of electric range, Ford, like other carmakers, has come a long way.
We’re Willing To Bet There’s a Secret or Two That You Don’t Know About The Ford GT Heritage Edition
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.
This Truck Is a 2014 Ford Raptor With a 1979 Face And It’s Retrolicious
Restomods have a special place in our hearts. But, there are two sets of people here – one who want it to be as old-school and stock as the original, and the other who prefer the retro aesthetics and modern features. For the latter, we’ve got an amazing build right here by Sweet Brothers Restomods. On the outside, you see a truck from the 70s, but everything else about it is from the 21st century. A perfect blend of both worlds, innit?
Check Out the Ford F-150 Electric As It Plays In The Snow
Now that the 2021 Ford F-150 is out of the box, the company can focus (pun unintended) on developing the electric version of the truck. It’s been in the works for quite some time now, but the first time we saw it in action – and that also officially confirmed its presence – was when Tesla challenged it to a towing capacity test and the electric F-150 allegedly towed over a million pounds. Apart from that, the company teased the truck a few months back along with the announcement of the new Rogue facility.
But, it seems like the company has already starting hyping it up. Ford released a teaser video that showcases the electric F-150 playing on ice like it’s no one else’s business.
The Ford Mach-E Saves Christmas for the Griswolds
Remember the famous Christmas lights scene from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation? Well, the Griswolds are back after two decades to reprise that scene, with the only change being the addition of a Ford Mustang Mach-E this time. Ford has roped in Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo to play Clark Griswold and Ellen from the Christmas-themed movie. Does Griswold manage to have a drama-free Christmas this time at least?
A Ford F-150 Raptor Isn’t Really A Raptor Until It Has Tank Tracks
The immense mod potential in a vehicle is not limited to just hatches and sedans; even pickup trucks can be modified and customized to a crazy extent. Take Westen Champlin for instance. Instead of upgrading the tires to a bigger or a different set, he got some new shoes altogether. Champlin has fitted tank tracks on his Ford F-150 Raptor and it has become a beast that can conquer just about any terrain. Were we doing Raptor the wrong way until now?
This Dyno Video Proves That Ford’s New 7.3-Liter V-8 Deserves the "Godzilla" Name
Ford’s Godzilla engine needs no introduction. The automaker introduced this in the Super Duty truck series not too long ago. This V-8 pushrod displaces 7.3 liters and makes 430 horses and 475 pound-feet of torque. But, it looks like the engine is a lot more capable than its rather subtle state of tune in the production engine form.
Ever since the company started offering it as a crate engine, builders have been trying to extract every ounce of power from it. Merkel Racing Engines decided to do the same, and with minimal mods, they were able to achieve four-digit power figures. Is this engine a beast or what?
One of Cyberpunk 2077’s Most Exotic Rides Is Now Available in Forza Horizon 4
Cyberpunk 2077 is barely a week old, and it’s already crossing over to a different game. One of the game’s most exotic vehicles is jumping over to the world of Forza Horizon 4 as a playable car. The custom Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech is the latest in a long line of collaborations that Playground Games, the developers of FH4, have signed off on with other video game titles.
Forza Horizon 4 gamers will have to complete a challenge to gain access to the Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech, but the cost that comes with completing it should be worth it once you can get behind the wheel of the racy supercar. If you already have the Halo Warthog and the custom Regalia from Final Fantasy 15, the Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech car would make a nice addition to your collection.
This Supercharged Terminator Ford Mustang Is Not For the Faint Hearted
The fourth-generation Mustang wasn’t exactly a looker when it first broke cover in 1993, but Ford fixed that with the "New Edge" redesign in late 1998. More importantly, Ford rolled out a new SVT Cobra model, while the Cobra R made a comeback for 2000 with 385 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque. But the Cobra R wasn’t the ultimate fourth-gen Mustang.
In 2003, Ford and SVT unveiled the Terminator Cobra. Powered by a supercharged 4.6-liter engine instead of the Cobra’s 5.4-liter V-8, the Terminator came with 390 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque on tap, along with unique design features and updates. A notable output back in 2003, 390 horsepower doesn’t seem that spectacular in 2020, but someone noticed the Terminator’s potential and turned it into an even more menacing beast.
Throwback: 2006 Ford Shelby GT500 "Germany" Commercial
2006 seems like forever ago, doesn’t it? At the very least, it feels like a different lifetime. Social media was still in its infancy and the world felt a lot bigger back then. 2006 was also a big year for Ford. The Blue Oval was bringing the Shelby Mustang back to life after a 25-year absence. Ford went all-out in marketing the return of the Shelby nameplate, and one commercial, in particular, effectively hammered Ford’s point. The Shelby Mustang was a beast, and there really was just one road in the world that could have a proper dance with it: the German Autobahn.
The ad, called “Germany,” puts the spotlight squarely on the 2006 Shelby Mustang GT500 and what it could do on a stretch of road that didn’t have any speed limits. It’s a fascinating commercial to look back on given that the Shelby Mustang is now deep into its third generation.
Watch The Ram TRX and The Ford F-150 Raptor Come Face-to-Face In This Four-Way Drag Race
It is always fun to see big, bulky trucks ripping the roads in a straight line. There are numerous videos online where you can find any combination of two trucks going up against each other. But, the one that you wouldn’t have seen so far and is arguably the most-anticipated war is the Ram 1500 TRX versus the Ford F-150 Raptor. However, this, too, is ticked off the list, thanks to the folks at TFLTrucks. The guys brought together the two behemoths on a drag strip along with the Chevy Silverado 1500 and the Ram Rebel. Who are you rooting for?
