2016 LOTUS ELISE 220 and ELISE SPORT 13

4.2s 2016 Lotus ELISE 220 Is Quickest Ever! USA Arrivals in March; No Fatties T-Shirt Optional

  Shocking speed from this new Elise 220 from Lotus!  Just 4.2-seconds to 60-mph for its estimated $60k US price makes it one of the most rapid machines for the money. And that is just in a straight line! Put some curves in the road course, and the Elise will walk away from most American metal — regardless of price or power ratings. The new Elise Sport is the base model below the 220, but is down about 80 ponies from the 217 of the top road-legal Elise in 2016.  Even so, the Elise Sport’s 6-second blast to 60-mph will …

2.3s, 1020HP 2015 ULTIMA Evolution Is Quickest Car In World?!

As McLaren GTR models, Porsche GT3 and Ferrari XX cars show — there is a huge business for track-focused and track-only supercars. Stripped of production frippery and shod with racing shocks and rubber, these cars are undoubtedly more intense and more focused on track. But what if you went the other way entirely? Instead of beefing up a production supercar for racing, how about adding some comforts to a pure race-car? The result is the very new 2015 Ultima Evolution Coupe and Spider. Three power outputs of Chevrolet Racing V8’s are available, with the top dog delivering a massive 1020 …

3.8s 2015 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S Is Quickest SUV EVER!

  Here is the scenario: two amazing Porsches. Which to do first? Our first article definitely led with the new Targa GTS — until we looked at the spec sheets. The PDK Targa GTS sprints to 60-mph in a very-respectable 4.1-seconds with the PDK pack. But brace yourself for some real heat with the new Cayenne Turbo S. This $160,000 super-truck is now the quickest SUV of all time: 3.8-seconds to 60-mph. Apologies for the lack of formatting in the specs below. Screenshots of the full specs PDF included, however, as proof of this unbelievably quick new Cayenne Turbo S. …

2016 SHELBY GT350R Is Quickest Factory Mustang Ever Made

If there are two priorities for an all-star track racer, one column would be labelled ‘Power’ and the other ‘Control.’ This new GT350R majors on control, with huge changes to the aero setup, the suspension and grip package, and the overall handling characteristics. The GT350R is an always-on, flypaper-grippy supercar that hopes to best the Camaro Z/28 in the quickest-lap stakes. This will be the Mustang for laying down the headline Laguna Seca laptimes, with much equipment and luxury tossed aside to slice those last few 10ths from the ultimate speed the GT350R can achieve. This means it will be …

2015 Hennessey HPE700 Mustang gif

717HP, 3.6s 2015 Hennessey HPE700 Is Quickest Custom Mustang Yet~!

Limited to 500 copies each – the new Hennessy HPE600 and HPE 700 Mustang upgrades are the hottest so far out the gate for this sweet new musclecar. The upgrade is centered on the powertrain to deliver those headline numbers, but the Hennessey Mustang is also seriously sexy outside with its deep racing splitter and aero treatment all around. This package, like the Roush options, can be ordered from Ford dealerships as well as via Hennessey directly. Difference? The Hennessey upgrade is seriously pricey – with our estimate being +$15,000 for the HPE600 and +$20,000 for the HPE700. Ordering details …
