Wildly styled JDM GT-Rs came out in force at this year's SEMA show. And when our intrepid shooters came across this stunning machine in an outdoor Toyo Tires exhibit, we knew we had to yell you about it.
Everyone has a bucket list of things they want to do in their life. Some people want to climb Mt. Everest, others want to travel the world. For gearheads like us, we dream of building our perfect car or attending something like Gatebil. If you haven't heard of Gatebil, the intro of this video sums it up quite well.
Local Colorado radio station 106.7 KBPI’s tagline is “KBPI Rocks the Rockies,” and on August 24th they did just that with their 10th annual Rock N’ Roll Car Show. Just like their past shows, this year’s event was held at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colo., and being that it’s nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the location couldn’t be more fitting.
Whether he is drifting up the Crown Range in New Zealand, competing in professional drift events all over the world, running his own graphic design/signage business or building top notch drift cars, Mike “Mad Mike” Whiddett is always up to something crazy. Well, he is at it again with this latest drift build. Those of you familiar with Mad Mike’s cars may know his Mazda RX-7 fitted with a quad-rotor 26b called “Madbul,” or his Mazda RX-8 with a tri-rotor 20b called “Badbul.” Both Madbul and Badbul are highly competitive professional drift cars that make 534 hp and 813 hp, respectively. While many people would be more than happy with numbers like those, Mad Mike wasn’t. He wanted more.
We haven’t stopped thinking about the Toyota FT-1 Vision concepts that continue to make us drool. We know, we know; there are more important things to do in life besides dreaming of cars that probably won’t come to fruition—at least not in its current form. But we can’t help it. We did something crazy last night. We hit the bottle hard and wandered onto Photoshop. Bad (read: great) things happened.
Normally you’d think a 2-, 3- or even a 4-rotor is fancy, right? Not the Kiwi’s at Pulse Performance Race Engineering. Try wrapping your mind around a 6-rotor Wankel engine that makes 813 hp @ 9000 RPM to the wheels, on pump gas, with no forced induction. The guys at PPRE did just that when they created the world’s first 6-rotor engine, and boy is it a thing of art. But that leaves you wondering, what do you do with a masterpiece like this? Put it in a museum? Drop it into a drag prepped, but street legal Mazda RX-4? For most of us the choice is an obvious one: we’d pick the latter.
After completing a 213 mph half-mile pass at Shift-Sector’s Airstrip Attack, the last thing you ever want to happen is something to go wrong with your car, sending you off the airstrip and causing the car to flip and roll a few times before finally coming to a complete stop.
Ever want to hear two of the world’s most exclusive cars going at it in a rev battle? Well prepare your ears for the pleasure that is the Ferrari Enzo and Ferrari LaFerrari doing that very thing ¾ in a tunnel of all places. The 651 BHP V12 of the Enzo and the 950 BHP V12 with HY-KERS in the LaFerrari have uniquely different exhaust tones, but both of these stallions are legends of their respective eras and the epitome of true hypercars. And the winner is? We think the LaFerrari won, but feast your eyes and ears on the video for yourself and you be the judge.
There isn’t much better than an early Sunday morning filled with the sound and feeling of roaring V8’s banging the rev limiter, the sweet smell of burning rubber, and a clear Colorado sunrise. On August 7th, 2014 Drift Colorado held the third and final round of their Enjukuracing.com Points Series.
With one quick look at the Hennessey Venom GT on a dyno, the age old saying “everything is bigger in Texas” couldn’t ring more true. Not just ‘cause the 270.49 mph, world record holding, Venom GT puts down a subtle 1244 brake horsepower and 1155 ft-lb of torque but also because of that massive flame it throws. The savage power coming from the modified 7.0 liter, twin Precision ball bearing turbo, LSX mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox is music to any automotive enthusiast’s ears.
On Sunday, June 8, 2014, Import Drag Racing Circuit/Street Tuner Mayhem made its annual stop at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colorado. IDRC is an event geared toward import cars and domestic sport compacts (FWD or AWD with 4 or 6 cylinders). This year’s event consisted of drag racing by class (super stock, super mod, street bike, heads-up), the JDM Chemicals car show judged by INSTAFAME on behalf of DSPORT Magazine, and temperamental weather.
#TeamRevv had the chance to catch up with a group of adrenaline seeking individuals and their cars on the sixth installment of the goldRush Rally that made its way through Denver on Monday June 2nd at the Four Seasons hotel.
