…Spyker wants to give you race ready power?

Spyker C8 Laviolette LM85

Spyker’s C8 Laviolette LM85 is based on their GT2R race car that’s based on their C8 Laviolette, and despite a strange heritage, this looks like one rad ride.

Featuring a 4.2-liter Audi V8 that produces 400 horsepower, a 6-speed manual feeds that power to the black powder coated alloy wheels, which are then stopped (when needed) by 6-piston AP Racing brakes.

The paint scheme is derived from their GT2R, a carbon fiber spoiler rounds out the rear, and the interior features plenty of black leather and alcantara to justify the price tag.

No word on what that price tag might be, but it’s pretty safe to assume that this Dutch beauty won’t be cheap.

Who said money couldn’t buy happiness?

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Nelson Racing F-Bomb?

Nelson Racing F-Bomb

When you’re the Chief Editor of Hotrod Magazine, it’s not like you can just drive around in a Dodge Stratus.

However, the Nelson Racing “F-Bomb” 1973 Chevy Camaro that David Freiburger drives around might just take the opposite to the extreme.

Featuring a twin turbo, 406 cubic inch V8, it’s got 1540 HP and 1527 lb.ft. of torque on tap so that any time speed is an option, the go pedal is sure to provide plenty of it.

Besides the monster engine though, the car has also been caged and minitubbed for safety, and was stripped down to the bare metal before being powder coated with a fighter plane motif that I can’t get enough of.

F-Bomb indeed.
