When we bestow Steve Tornari's 1967 Nova with the title of "The Bluto Blutarsky of SEMA 2014," know that it's pretty much our highest honor. If you recall, Bluto was Animal House's grizzled veteran-he'd been around forever, gotten wrecked many times and, despite his geographic challenges, was a diamond in the rough.
Let's say that you were rolling around Shift-S3ctor's Airstrip Attack 7 in a twin-turbo, V-8-powered BMW M5. And let's say that for your half-mile run, you staged next to a plain-looking, white RS7. If you hadn't been paying attention in the pits, would you have felt pretty confident about pulling out the win? I mean, with an M5's stock 0-60 times in the mid-3-second range, and stock 0-100 times in just over 8 seconds, that's a pretty fast ride. Add in a few mods and you've got yourself a giant killer.
Writing a "fastest Supra" blog is kinda like asking which of Mike Tyson's punches is the strongest, which of Kim Kardashian's butt cheeks is the roundest or which of Revvolution's team members are trying to look the coolest in shades (besides me). The answers? All of the above, of course. Yep, "fast Supra" is basically an oxymoron these days, so you really have to have something special to claim the "fastest import" title. And EKanoo Racing has something special—their Outlaw 10.5 Supra just ran an eye-popping 6.05 ET at 387 km/h (240 mph)!
OB Prestige Auto's 2,000+ horsepower Gallardo Superleggera just dominated Shift-S3ctor's Airstrip Attack 7 (be sure to check out our official coverage) by blasting a scorching 229.1 mph half-mile run (read: soon after this video was published, they set two consecutive passes, each besting this trap speed; more on that later).
The F80 is a mind-blowing concept that was penned by Adriano Raeli. Raeli is a young Italian who moved to California to study transportation design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. His portfolio contains several interesting designs: the Alva Roadboard is a lightweight, electric take on an adult skateboard, and the Alfa Romeo Azzurra is a futuristic cross between a Maserati and a Jaguar.
