Well, here's an interesting piece of news to liven up the start of your week. Instead of cracking down on illegal drag racers, the Malaysian government actually plans to promote motorsports by building drag racing circuits all across the country.According
Place your bets
Yes, that headline sounds like the start of a very lame motorsport joke. Also, the activity in question is like comparing apples to oranges. So, why do it? Because you take any opportunity you can to make things go fast on a
This will compete for Toyota Motor North America in the 2022 NHRA season
Yes, that is, indeed, a Toyota Supra. But no, it is most definitely not an absurd custom build or whatever you want to call it-this one's a Funny Car. And by 'funny' we mean that it's going drag racing
Which 1,000hp beast are you betting on?
The Tesla Model S Plaid is one hell of an electric vehicle. It boasts 1,020hp and does 0-97kph in under 2sec. It's basically a supercar/hypercar killer with four doors and plenty of space for both passengers and cargo.
Wishlist time?
The Lego Technic line of models is largely considered the toymaker's top-of-the-line offering for car nuts. And with vehicles like the all-new Land Rover Defender and Lamborghini Sian in its lineup, it isn't hard to see
Which performance car will reign supreme?
One Toyota GR Yaris, one GR Supra, one Honda Civic Type R, and one empty stretch of asphalt. Well, this should be fun?Top Gear recently had the pleasure of having all three performance cars to themselves on a makeshift drag strip
Jesus, take the wheel
Close calls behind the wheel usually come in the form of a poorly-timed overtake or a pedestrian popping out of nowhere to obstruct your path. These can ruffle a motorist's feathers, but they aren't anything driving experience and
Displayed at the 2021 Tokyo Auto Salon
Drag cars are supposed to be menacing and noisy, not quiet and subtle. The Honda e-Drag, though? We're willing to make an exception.Displayed at this year's virtual Tokyo Auto Salon (TAS), the Honda e-Drag is a stripped-
Yes...at a cost
Ken Block has found a pretty neat way to keep busy since turning over Gymkhana duties to fellow tire shredder Travis Pastrana: Taking on anything and everything behind the wheel of the legendary Hoonicorn V2.Since Hoonigan started its Hoonicorn vs. the
The Hoonicorn isn’t just proficient in going sideways...
Remember Ken Block's outrageous Hoonicorn V2? Y'know, the 789hp twin-turbo V8 version of the four-wheel-drive 1965 Hoonicorn Ford Mustang RTR? Of course you do. Given it's spent half of its life at 45 degrees (or more)
Violators may face a fine of up to P500,000 and up to a year in prison
Not a fan of illegal street racing? Well, news flash: Neither are we. It's stupid, it's dangerous, and it's against the law. If you're stacked enough to afford a race car-be it a sports car or a
Other peak figures: 1,502hp, 270kph
Ford has a new electrified Mustang on its way, but we figure this won't get as much flak as the Mach-E that came before it. This is the all-electric Mustang Cobra Jet 1400, and it just exceeded its testing
This isn’t even the bike’s final form
Frankly, 208hp can be enough to have fun with in a car. On a motorcycle, though? You're going to need some serious cojones to consider a bike with that much horsepower.That said, the MV Agusta Rush 1000 isn't any
That ‘1400’ in the name denotes the horsepower rating, by the way
Back in 1968, Ford built 50 special lightweight Mustangs specifically for drag racing. Some 40 years later, it revived the practice, and most years since has built small batches of these fat-tired, turnkey but non-road-legal Mustangs. They're called
What happens in Vegas ends up in the history books
On November 1st, Brittany Force strapped into her Top Fuel dragster at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, waited for the lights to go out, and pinned it. Exactly 3.659sec later, she crossed the finish line at 338.17mph (544.23kph).It was
Seven and a half minutes of time-lapse awesomeness
Got seven minutes spare? Good. Because thanks to the power of time lapse, that's all you need to see a Top Fuel dragster's 11,000hp engine completely stripped down and rebuilt. It's also remarkably satisfying. And quite mesmerizing. Like
Mike Bowman gets nothing but net as he has the mother of all Code Brown moments
Here's a useful-and very visual-illustration of physics for you. See, if you think those parachutes that sprout out of the back of drag cars once they've crossed the finish line are merely there to add a bit visual
