Well, you don’t see this everyday… For all intensive purposes, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is, excessive. We’re talking about the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 with 717 horsepower and 656 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels. Tuners like Hennessey have even turned up the output to over 1,000 horsepower. But this… this might just be too far. In one of the most outrageous Challenger Hellcat builds we’ve seen, this custom ride sits on 34-inch wheels by Underground Rim King that throws off the car’s proportions and performance. And no, we’re not sure why anyone thought this was a good idea. Anyway, check it out here and let us know your thoughts. We’d tell you to enjoy but you probably won’t.
You might be surprised to see the Durango in a drag race. But after it was fitted with the Hellcat engine, it proved to be a performance car worthy of competing against some serious sports cars. So, how does it fare against something like the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray? Hennessey Performance put the two head-to-head in an all out battle. C’mon, you know you’re curious. So place your bets, and watch the video below to find out. Enjoy.
The Ford Maverick Grabber is one of those obscure muscle cars. Can we even consider it a muscle car? Or does it strike you as something else? Today we’re recognizing the Maverick Grabber simply for what it is – a cool car. Released in 1971, this Ford had the right look without all the weight beared by the competition. That weight (or lack there of) was the Grabber’s ticket to some added speed and the Ford 302 CID V-8 didn’t hurt either. Arguably the best aspect of this car was the aesthetic. The advertising read: “It’s not a superbomb, it’s more of jazzy firecracker.” So there you have it.
There are critics that say that electric vehicles aren’t as safe as traditional cars. Will the batteries explode in a serious crash? Can fire departments extinguish them? These are valid concerns, but one thing is now confirmed, and its that the Ford Mustang Mach-E has passed the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s rigorous tests, earing itself that coveted Top Safety Pick designation. We gotta give it up, since earing this score is no small feat. Any vehicle tested by the IIHS must achieve a ‘good’ score in six separate crash tests: driver-and-passenger-side small overlap, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints.
