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.
Ringbrothers promised to make a splash at SEMA this year, and they certainly delivered. Behold, “Uncaged.” The car is based on a Ford Mustang convertible from 1965, but besides the center caps on the wheels, everything is pretty much updated.
You can tell just by looking at the ‘Stang, it’s not your run of the mill ride. The body sits atop a Fast Track chassis from Roadster Shop that’s been widened an inch on both sides. The bottom line: this is not a modified Mustang but a Mustang-based restomod. It’s an all-new car that takes on a whole new meaning. See it for yourself, right here.
On this episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, Dr. Ernie Nagamatsu gives Jay the unforgettable opportunity to share the same driver’s seat as legends like Dan Gurney, Carrol Shelby, and other racing icons. Check out the episode below that features a 1959 Old Yeller II. Enjoy.
It’s pretty standard to hear about exotic sportscars and supercars spending their years in secured garaged, appreciating in value over time. You don’t often hear the same about pickup trucks. CarBuzz recently reported their latest find on Craigslist, and it truly is something special. It’s a 1988 Ford-350 XLT Lariat dually. The truck has had just one owner and has clocked a mere 5,682 miles over three decades – that’s just 177 miles per year. Under the hood is a 7.3-liter eight-cylinder diesel engine. This particular truck has spent most of it’s life in a heated garage and the owner confirms it is 100 percent rust-free. From the looks of it, it’s in phenomenal condition. Why the owner would be selling a beauty like this is beyond us, but we hope he or she gets a pretty penny.
