Ariel Atom 500 V8 Development

Being the Motor enthusiasts we are, you would imagine that a Lotus Exige has probably the best power to weight ratio right. Well that what we thought at least until we found out about the new beefy Ariel Atom.

The Ariel Atom 3 sprints from 0 to 100 Kph in under 3 seconds and can hit 160 Kph in under 7 seconds, can you say fast! With figures like that who would need more power. But the guys at Ariel Motor Company decided to develop a super special project for the …

Lamborghini Gallardo Twin Turbo

In theory the Gallardo could produce figures of 1417 Kw
Underground Racing have been creating quite a stir lately with their newest little project the Twin Charged Lamborghini Gallardo ordered by some rather hectic speed junkie. Jonah placed an order for a modified Lamborghini that can produce 1119 Kw running on VP C16 racing fuel, this thing has enough horses to side swipe Schumy’s F1 car. Oh and let’s just add this into perspective, the Gallardo loses a lot of the engine’s original power by the time it’s reached the tires …

Although its not exactly a true limited-edition car. While the first 125 examples of the car will be produced in an exclusive Aspen White color, the Special Edition will become a regular production model later in 2010. And you can bet it will …

312KW MTM AUDI TT RS

Rumor has it Audi will bring the TT RS to South Africa.
I know i’m not going to be the only one saying this when i say, the new Audi TT is awesome. It really looks the part of an aggressive sports monster. Problem is, LOOKS THE PART. But it’s never really played the part. Up until now the TT has been lacking that muscle to be a capable sports coupe. Audi’s solution to this problem is the Audi TT RS. It’s the first true sports car to be drafted by …
