I think we all can agree that not everything goes to plan. And in this scenario, that’s definitely the case. This Dodge Challenger Hellcat set out to do burnouts and some acceleration runs but it’s time came to a halt when the driver suddenly lost control and swerved into a Silverado driving in the next lane. The good thing is that no one was seriously injured, and neither had kids inside the vehicle. The Hellcat suffered the most damage surprisingly, with the entire front end being nearly ripped off and the hood bent upwards. See it all unfold for yourself, right here.
Freiburger and Dulcich have brought this rusty 1969 Impala back from the dead! The Crusher has a 489 inch big block with an 871 supercharger producing 700 horsepower to the flywheels and 500 horsepower to the tires. The Roadkill guys take the ride to the drag to lay down some times, and even try to do some burnouts. Check it out, right here.
If you’re not familiar with the American tuner Hennessey, you’re going to want to get acquainted. The company specializes in taking fast cars and making them soar: the 2014 Z/28 Camaro, to be exact. It had a respectable 505 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque but factory standards aren’t Hennessey’s speed. The Z/28’s 7.0-liter, hand-built LS7 V8 was mated to a TVS2300 supercharger and now graces the road with 636 hp. Check out the test drive right here (earplugs not included):
Jeep announced last year that the Wrangler 392 would make it to production, and with a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 producing 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, what’s not to be excited about? The Fast Lane Truck on YouTube decided to pit the Wrangler against another mighty V8: the Ram 1500 TRX. The truck hasn’t put up the best power figures in the past, so it could have it’s work cut out for it with the Wrangler. Check out the video below to see how the 392 does against the TRX. Enjoy.
