Tweaks to the 8.0-liter twin-turbo V8 are still being contemplated
A Koenigsegg Agera RS hit 284.3 miles per hour and set a two-way averaged top speed record of 277.9 mph while testing in Nevada. Watch the video here.
It's time to see what 1,360 horsepower can really do when fully uncorked.
Want to hit the Ford GT's 216-mph top speed? Better turn its steering wheel-mounted dial to V-Max.
The record was set at the Texas Mile.
Bugatti wanted the thumbs-up of a "real champion."
Faster than the current Corvette Z06, slower than a Hellcat.
Just watch Andy Wallace's hands.
The world record for the fastest wheelie ever was broken last week in a British racing event by Gary Rothwell.
Dodge shows that its 707-horsepower, 6.2-liter supercharged V8-powered Charger SRT Hellcat really can reach its 204-mph top speed.
Watch the boys at Motor Trend bring together a ridiculously fast array of tuner cars, supercars and superbikes for a top-speed run down Minter Field air strip in Shafter, CA, in this latest video.
Hey, all you fans of the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, where will you ever use that 204 mile per hour top speed? Probably not in very many places, and Smart would kindly like to remind you that, "Top speed means nothing in the city."
The Bugatti Veyron might be getting on in years, but it's still an engineering marvel capable of truly insane velocity. There are tons of videos of the Veyron doing its super-high-speed trick of reaching 200 miles per hour with seemingly no effort. But do you know how much ground the coupe is actually covering at full chat? Let's just say it's mighty impressive.
Formula E completed its first testing session at the Donington Park circuit, where the electric racing series' headquarters are located. Lucas di Grassi, driving for Audi Sport Abt, was kind enough to attach a GoPro video camera to his helmet to give us a pilot's-eye view of what its like to steer Formula E's Spark-Renault SRT_01E around the track at full speed.
Hennessey has done it again, improving the claimed record-holding top speed of its Venom GT to 270.49 miles per hour. The record run was made on February 14 on the 3.22-mile landing runway at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The speed was confirmed by a Racelogic Vbox telemetry system, but for a variety of reasons, it will not make it into the Guinness Book of World Records. However, it narrowly beat out the record-holding top speed of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport at 267.81 mph. Amazingl
By and large, the machines created for the SEMA show in Las Vegas are built for lounging around under convention center lights and not much else. All those go-fast parts we see bolted on do little more than collect lustful stares from from the crowd. But Creations n' Chrome set out to discover just what their bolt on additions to its Ford Mustang were good for. Under the outrageous 3dCarbon bodykit sits a Vortech supercharged 5.0-liter V8 good for around 580 horsepower at 8 psi of boost on stock
In a rebuilding job worthy of The Six Million Dollar Man, Richard Loosee's T-Top Ferrari Enzo destroyed in a 200-mile-per-hour shunt has been reborn to take on the Bonneville Salt Flats. Gone are the T-Tops, replaced by something just as outrageous: a set of turbos that will boost the Enzo's V12 to between 850 and 1,000 horsepower when gunning time comes. And they were able to repair and reuse the car's original block.
