The Z/28 Camaro With 636-HP

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):

Is The Mustang Mach-E GT The Quickest SUV In The World?

The Ford Mustang Mach-E GT has sports car-like elements and “accelerates faster than anything in its class.” At least that’s the new claim made by the automaker after they shared the acceleration times for the model after it made its debut in the European market.

The dual-motor Mach-E GT sends power to all-fours, and thanks to the 459-horsepower, goes from 0-62 in a whopping 3.7 seconds before tapping out at 124 mph. And considering the 612 lb-ft of torque, the Mach-E GT is one of the quickest SUVs in the world, beating out power houses like the Porsche Macan Turbo. Oh, did we mention it’s beautiful? Check it out, right here.

1970 Dodge Challenger T/A

The 1970 Dodge Challenger you see above belongs to John Incardone. He made the purchase when he was just a teenager back in 1976 and it’s only belonged to him ever since. Just 2,400 of these cars were ever made and post-restoration, this might be one of the most beautiful. Check out Incardone’s most prized possession below:

The Cadillac Cyclone

This 1959 Cadillac Cyclone was the last “dream car” created during Harley Earl’s time as General Motor’s VP of design. Looking more like a jet aircraft than a car, the Cyclone was designed for the future. The fenders resembled rockets and a Plexiglas bubble top automatically closed for rain. When not in use, the canopy (like that of an aircraft cockpit) folds backward beneath the surface of the trunk. You didn’t have to open it up to talk to people outside of the car though; for that there was an intercom system. At the touch of a button, the Cyclone’s doors moved outward 3 inches from the car and slid back smoothly for easy entrance. This revolutionary concept car was complete with a radar-sensing crash avoidance system and a 325-horsepower engine.

1,100-HP Tesla Model S Plaid Hits The Laguna Seca Track

A little over a year ago, a Tesla Model S Plaid prototype circled the Laguna Seca track in 1:36:55, which was the fasted time for a four-door sedan. Since that, the Lucid Air Dream Edition clocked a time of 1:33. And now, the 1,100-horsepower Model S Plaid has showed up to the party and shaved it’s time down to 1:30:3, which is only 2 seconds slower than the record-holding Porsche 991 GT2 RS. Thanks to Sebastian Vittel on YouTube, we get to watch the lap from behind the wheel of the Plaid. Check it out, right here. Enjoy.
