    1412985480

    We live in a high-tech supercar renaissance, with the Porsche 918 Spyder, McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari all duking it out for performance supremacy. All three members of this power trio place the engine behind the driver and use some kind of hybrid assist. However, each one finds a slightly ...

    Video: 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost already hitting 12-second quarters
    1411921800

    The arrival of a new Ford Mustang means many things to many people, but not least of them is drag racers. The pony car has always been a mainstay of the drag strip, and the Ford Racing team aims to carry that reputation forward with this latest generation. So it cooked up a few basic ...

    Video: 1955 Chevy drag racer rolls his car, walks away after going through windshield
    1411430400

    A classic '55 Chevrolet and a second-gen Camaro line up for a drag race on what looks to be a beautiful day, but by the end of the run, it's pure carnage with the '55 rolling down the track and its driver's legs sticking out of the windshield. Thankfully, the guy is still alive; in fact he even ...

    Video: World's quickest street-legal vehicle is... 1998 Chevy S-10 pickup
    1410807480

    In the pantheon of performance cars and trucks that have come across our radars, there exists a clear dividing line between those designed solely for use at a racetrack – be that a road circuit, oval, dirt track or drag strip – and those that can be driven to and from such a track. ...

    Video: Evo pits BMW M3 against Porsche Macan in drag battle
    1408922940

    If you want to move five passengers in very rapid fashion and you've got a $75,000 budget, two newly introduced four-door models immediately come to mind – both are the highest performing vehicles in their respective segments. But which is faster off the line, to the 60-mile-per-hour ...

    Video: Watch these NHRA top fuel dragsters pull successive barrel-rolls
    1408561200

    To win a race, you have to finish the race. It's the first lesson of racing, no matter what kind you're into. In drag racing, though, if your opponent crashes out – as is not uncommon a sight – then victory is yours. But what if both dragsters fail to make it to the finish ...

    Video: Ducati Diavel lines up against Corvette Stingray on the drag strip
    1407178680

    Car vs Bike: It's a story we've heard told and seen played out countless times before, but it's one of which we never get tired. Or seldom, anyway, especially when it pits such lust-worthy machinery against each other. In this latest drag race is the Chevy Corvette Stingray Convertible piloted ...

    Video: Porsche Cayman S and Caterham 7 go head to head on the drag strip
    1403902680

    We recently saw the standard Porsche Cayman go up against a Subaru WRX STI in a one-mile drag race with surprising results. Apparently, Evo had a similar idea of evaluating the Cayman's quickness. However, it opted for the more powerful S model and chose a flyweight Caterham Roadsport 140 as the ...

    Video: Which is quicker in the standing mile, a Subaru WRX STI or a Porsche Cayman?
    1403827200

    The 2015 Subaru WRX STI and 2014 Porsche Cayman are both saddled with unfair reputations. The STI with its huge wing and gold wheels has the title of the ultimate boy-racer. On the other hand, Porsche brand snobs look down on the base Cayman as just a wannabe 911. In reality, they are both pretty ...

    Video: Aussie Ford Falcon GT shows its rear end to Lamborghini Gallardo
    1398625260

    When Ford Australia announces, as it did recently, that it wants to celebrate the end of its Ford Performance Vehicle division with a Falcon FPV GT-F that celebrates big-bore origins of the nameplate, it's talking about the kind of car in this video. At some point the classic Falcon GT – ...

    Video: Modified Trabant takes on Nissan GT-R in 1/4-mile battle
    1396990860

    The little yellow guy in the right lane above with the "Flitzer" license plate looks like a Trabant 601 wagon and it's called a Trabant, but it's got little to do with the impoverished East German runabout that did its part to drive Communist ideals further into the ground. You'd almost be ...

    Video: SRT Viper drags an F-16 Viper in latest car vs. jet showdown
    1396983600

    Which is faster, a supercar or a fighter jet? It's a question we've seen people try to answer time and time again, like in this latest showdown. Orchestrated by the Viper Club of America, this drag race pits a 2014 SRT Viper against an F-16 fighter jet, which may be officially known as the ...

    Video: First privately owned Corvette Stingray blitzes 1/4 mile in 12.23 at 114.88 mph
    1380645120

    Chevrolet's latest road rocket, the Corvette Stingray, is a very quick car. If one needs further proof of that, we recommend they take a look at this video from Hennessey of what is claimed to be the first privately owned C7 Corvette to make a pass down the quarter mile. Not just any quarter ...

    Video: Twin-turbo Lamborghini ignites at 250 mph
    1379538000

    Yesterday we covered a crash at the Unlimited 500+ drag race in Moscow, featuring a Nissan GT-R, but today brings better news: a Lamborghini Gallardo making 2,005 horsepower successfully went 250 miles per hour on the one-mile strip in 23.9 seconds without crashing. That's the good part. The bad ...

    Video: Shelby GT500 and Roush Stage 3 go head to head at the drag strip
    1375893180

    The Ford Mustang is a brilliantly affordable source of horsepower, with a base 300-plus-horsepower version available for well under $30,000. Jumping up to about $35,000 will get you a solid 420 horsepower from a high-revving V8, while those with some extra disposable income can get a pair of ...

    Video: Nissan Juke-R pitted against Bugatti Veyron in brilliantly odd drag race
    1370881800

    The Nissan Juke-R must've been a tough car to build a business case for, yet the madcap little crossover with the heart of a GT-R is now a production reality. Admittedly, we should probably assign some quotes around "production," since the vehicle is being built on a one-by-one on-demand basis at ...

    Video: Stock Miata beats bunch of high-powered cars in wet 1/4-mile drag race
    1370545020

    When is a stock, 167-horsepower Mazda MX-5 Miata quicker than a Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Mustang, Lamborghini Gallardo, Lotus Elise and a Porsche 911? When it's raining. Sort of. Mazda Canada arranged a unique drag race to show off the fact that the Miata's optional power retractable folding ...

    Video: Nissan GT-R drag races Swiss fighter jet
    1368125940

    Proving that speed is fun in any language, Nissan's German arm recently pitted a GT-R up against an ex-Swiss Air Force fighter jet, called the Hawker Hunter. Now the idea of a car-versus-plane drag race is nothing new, but this is the first time we can recall a GT-R being involved. While this ...

    Video: 2013 SRT Viper spends its days living life a quarter mile at a time
    1366821900

    There are lots of ways to measure the performance of a car, but there's only one that is quintessentially American: the quarter mile. And while we've already seen a proper comparison test or two that puts the new (and also quintessentially American) SRT Viper on a racetrack, we've yet to see what ...

    Video: Ferrari F12 races Air Malta A320 jet
    1364601480

    Air Malta recently worked up a little stunt that pitted an Airbus A320 against a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta in a drag race to raise funds for charity. It's easy to forget just how quick something the size of a jetliner can be, but watching the video below shows us just where the big passenger ...
