The Mustang with A 7.3-Liter Godzilla V8

You may have seen this Mustang floating around the internet. The car featured today has been perplexing muscle car fans everywhere due to its unusually large hood bulge. Some speculated that it was a test mule for a more powerful Shelby GT 350 or a new Cobra Jet. Ford has finally reveled that under the hood of the ‘Stang is Ford Performance’s new 7.3-liter Godzilla V8 and a manual gearbox. The Blue Oval gives Ford fan and YouTuber REVan Evan the inside scoop (and exclusive first look) at the muscle car. Check it out, right here.

Excessive Challenger SRT Hellcat

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.

Focus RS vs. Toyota GT86

Well, well, well. What do we have here? An all-wheel drive hatch challenging Toyota’s first rear-wheel drive sports coupe in ages. The Japanese car being challenged is fit with skinny low-grip tires and a driveshaft down the GT86’s sagittal plane, allowing the 205 horsepower boxer-four to hit some serious drifts. Knowing all of this, we would usually tell the Focus to take a hike. But, the RS has a trick up its sleeve. The name of said trick? “Drift mode.” Shocking, we know. Question is, how effective is it against the tried and true method of sending power to the rear. Let’s find out, right here:
