    Leave a Comment

    The car featured today was known as “The Black Ghost” on the west side of Detroit. It would come out, win a ton of races, and then disappear. No one really knew who owned this extremely rare ride, but on occasion you would catch a glimpse of it cruising the streets and the rumors would start flowing. Maybe that’s what made The Black Ghost such a spectacle, the mystery of it all. But in any case, the story of this classic ride is tremendous, and truly worth the watch.

    Dodge released the final teaser video for the final Last Call model before the official reveal on Saturday. The unveiling will happen at the Dodge Last Call Powered by Roadkill Nights Vegas one-day performance festival. The teaser shows a leprechaun jackhammering a bunch of golden balls, but as expected there are some Easter eggs throughout. Our guess? A Dodge Challenger. Check it out and let us know yours. Enjoy.

  4. Past vs. Future: 2017 Chevy Bolt vs. VW GTI

    Leave a Comment

    Well, well, well, what do we have here. Looks to us like a good old fashioned drag race. Sure, the unusual egg shape of the Chevy Bolt isn’t the most attractive model we feature, but don’t judge, it’s a damn good car. The Fast Lane Car puts the Bolt up against the VW Golf GTI. The GTI has a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that relays 210 horsepower to the front wheels, making it a standard in a line up of the world’s best hatches. Unfortunately for the Golf, the competition in this race has it completely beat.

    We know that electric cars usually own drag races due to all the electric torque on tap from the start. The Bolt’s 200 horsepower and 266-lb ft of torque delivered to the front wheels seems to make the Bolt the easy winner off the bat. We don’t get to see what happens post take off, but we’d imagine the GTI would overtake the electric Chevy once the engine gets going. Check it out:
