Houston, Texas-based modifiers of obscene horsepower, Hennessey, fill their corporate coffers supercharging Corvette and Cadillac engines to the point of absurdity. But they are best known for their Bugatti-killing Venom hypercar. Hennessey and Bugatti, in fact, have gone back to the lab many times in the past 10 years to squeeze out a bit more power […]


The International Supercar Wars just got a little testier this week, with the pronouncement from a California-based company called Trion Supercars that they were engineering a 2,000-horsepower rubber and asphalt devourer.

Just before the Geneva auto show, Jaguar flips the sheets off its brand new super wagon, the XFR-S Sportbrake. Powered by the same fire-breathing V8 that beats inside Jag’s F-Type R (as well as XKR-S, XFR-S and XJR), the 542-horsepower lump is good for 0-60 in 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph — pretty dazzling numbers […]

The Four Rings teams its 4-door looker with firepower to match

Audi has many beautiful vehicles in its line-up, frankly there are few (if any) automakers out there who can compete with the Four Rings on a strictly aesthetic level. And one of their best looking vehicles, the A7 sportback, is getting the RS overhaul for 2014 — something Benz’s CLS63 and BMW’s M6 are probably […]

Still 100+ MPH/100+ mile range, now with IET technology

Oregon-based Brammo is getting ready to release a new fully electric motorcycle model that builds both from their first bike, the Enertia, and second bike, the Empulse (which we previously covered), resulting in the Empulse R. The new model has been vamped up using Integrated Electric Transmission (IET) — a mechatronic propulsion unit that replicates […]
