…Dodge’s Challenger SRT-8 is no slouch?

Dodge Challenger SRT-8

The new Dodge Challenger is the heavy artillery of the modern muscle car war.

It’s big, it’s powerful, it’s only offered in the high-performance SRT-8 trim level, and you can have it in any color you want, as long as it’s Hemi orange, silver, or black.

Unfortunately, the interior suffers from a severe case of rental-car-itis, but when it’ll do this all day:

Doug Levin is normally a Viper guy.

However, when you take a Lamborghini Murcielago, bolt on two hairdryers, and let the drop-top roar with 800 horses, no explanation for the switch is necessary.

Supposedly the world’s first twin turbo ‘lago, this yellow monster screams like a beaten child at full throttle, and probably puts just about anything else on the road to shame.

Four wheel burnouts anyone?

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Supra-LeMans?

Supra-LeMans

So you’re living in Germany, you’ve been given a slightly beat up 1972 Pontiac LeMans as part of a video game promotion, and you have access to a turbo’d Mark III Supra engine. What do you do? You combine the two of course.

Ralf Becker is the man behind this mash-up monster, and though it’s in rough project form right now, it’s not hard to imagine the potential. Redline burnouts and blow-off valves anyone?
