    Video: Silly dyno, that Tesla doesn't have 2,000 lb-ft of torque [UPDATE]
    1407790680

    Torque. Lots of torque, right off the line. That one benefit presented by an electric motor over its internal-combustion sibling, and the Tesla Model S delivers it in spades. 443 spades, to be precise, or about as much as a Bentley Continental GT or McLaren 12C. But when one Emmanuel Chang put ...

    Video: Check out this tour of Arash's factory and an AF8 dyno run
    1396051080

    As boutique automakers go, Arash has been around for quite a long time, yet it hasn't really made much of a splash. We first reported on them a whopping seven years ago, and since then, the English-built brand has trotted out a slow and steady stream of exotica. YouTuber Shmee150 has a great ...

    Video: 2,200-HP Saleen S7 is a goosebump generator on the dyno
    1378580760

    What does more than 2,200 horsepower sound like? Any of us could guess that an output that gargantuan doesn't enter the world like a gentle breeze, but putting an actual voice to it could require some imagination. That is, unless you happened to have a video of a ridiculously tuned Saleen S7 ...

    Video: You know you've always wanted to dyno a Barbie Power Wheels
    1371167820

    When I was a kid, Power Wheels were all the rage. But my caring and loving parents refused to buy me one, no matter how many times I asked. My experiences with the machines back then were limited to test-drives at the local Toys R Us, or befriending the weird kid down the block just so I could ...

    Video: 200-mph Camaro dyno run is a blow out
    1370019660

    What's the best way to get the tires off the rims quickly? Not by running the thing at 200 miles per hour on the dyno and having them explode, we're quite sure. That's what happened to a twin-turbo F-body Chevrolet Camaro with 1,800 horsepower at the wheels as it was being prepped for the Texas ...

    Video: Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 has a bit of a dyno issue
    1369759440

    We're of the mind that each and every dyno should come with Murphy's Law painted in big, visible letters down the side. For every ten successful dyno runs out there, it seems there's one where events go horribly wrong. Take, for example, the video below. The clip shows what happens when a Ford ...

    Video: Russian tuner squeezes 1,000 horsepower into a Fiat Coupe
    1319749020

    You may remember a fun little hatchback called the Fiat Panda 100HP. All it took was a hundred horsepower to turn a ho-hum supermini into what European editors knew and loved as one of their favorite driving machines. That was a little overshadowed by the Fiat 500 that offers the same powertrain, ...
