    On this episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, our host introduces us to his 1993 Dodge Viper. The 1st generation muscle car was very impressive for its time, with a V-10 aluminum engine, 400 horsepower, and 465 lb-ft of torque. Prior to this ride, the most powerful American car on the market was the Corvette ZR1 with 371 horsepower. Check out the episode below and hear from Leno the story of when he bought the car, and why he thinks it’s the “most brutal edition.” Enjoy.

    Sure, why not take a 647-horsepower Ford GT and make it even MORE insane? This special track-only model has 700-horsepower and costs north of $1 million dollars. The Ford GT MK II is an ultra-rare (collectible) version of the 2017-present Ford GT supercar revealed last year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

    The car was built for Google VP Benjamin Sloss Treynor – a supercar fan and collector. Check out this picture tweeted by Multimatic, and do your best not to drool.

  3. The Bullitt Takes On The Isle Of Man

    Leave a Comment

    The Isle of Man is considered to be one of the most dangerous racing events in the world. The famous race is mainly for motorcycles, but every once in a while a four-wheeled machine with guts takes it on. Enter, the Ford Mustang Bullitt. The race dates all the way back to 1907, and while the views may be stunning, the course isn’t exactly forgiving. Over 250 riders have lost their lives on the grueling course. Watch the video below to witness the pony car navigate every inch of the 37.7-mile legendary course. Enjoy.

  4. The Original Ford SUV: 2017 Expedition

    Leave a Comment

    Ford launched the first generation Expedition back in 1997 as the full-size big brother to the Explorer. At the time, both the Expedition and the Explorer were body-on-frame chassis SUV’s. Today, the Expedition is the only one that remains a true SUV while the Explorer has switched to a crossover. The Explorer has been designed on the same platform as an old Volvo sedan, where as the Expedition however, is on the same platform as the previous generation F-150.

    Our friends over at CarBuzz were about to test out a fully loaded Expedition Platinum powered by a twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, with a six-speed automatic. Check it out:
