This vintage Motor Trend Ignition episode has it all: A Shelby GT350, a Mustang 5.0, Randy Pobst, a dyno test of the GT350 with 467 whp and 374 lb-ft of torque, a Dodge Charger Pursuit Cop Car, and a Lap Battle between a cop car and a GT350. Check out the episode below and hear Jason Cammisa’s take on all of the above, specifically the Shelby GT350. Enjoy.
We love a showdown. More specifically, we love a showdown with tons of power. On this episode of Hot Rod Garage, the new 1000-hp Chevelle takes on the 1000-hp Caprice. These rides might not be classified as supercars, but they’ve definitely got some super powers. See the two go head-to-head, right here.
We’ve all been there (or daydreamed about it) – cruising down the open road in your beloved ride. A father and son were doing exactly what their 700 hp Camaro was modified for, until things went South and the pony car caught fire. The spectacle was all captured on video and thankfully the father and son are fine.
Let’s just chalk this one up to another restoration project.
So right off the bat you probably know that this isn’t about a stock Cadillac Escalade. And wherever ridiculously fast cars are going faster, you know Hennessey Performance isn’t too far away. In this video, a Camaro ZL1 is pitted against a Cadillac Escalade SUV tuned by the great (and possibly crazy) people of Hennessey. The shop offers a HPE800 package, which comes with a mighty 805 horsepower, doubling the power in the stock Escalade. But how? By attaching a high-flow 2.9L supercharger to the 6.2-liter V8 engine, and of course a few other upgrades sprinkled in there. The Hennessey Escalade goes 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds and goes a quarter-mile in 11.7 at 116 mph. Check it out for yourself in the video below, and let the insanity of the Hennessey Escalade tuning package really sink in.
