Golf Sportec R sc 350 - For car lovers from the family of Volkswagen Golf VI, of course you know how they are to through increased with the two top models, drive 207hp GTI with front wheels and R. In the line-up wheel-drive Golf-r this is indeed the fastest and strongest. Golf Sportec R sc 350, this is one of the ways used by Volkswagen to their line-ups. In this case there were some changes made ??by Volkswagen on this new product, R sc Golf Sportec 350.
Shoehorning a truck engine into a sleek precision-engineered German auto like a BMW Z4 seems like the height of madness, but this is precisely what this car builder did. Anybody who has transplanted an engine will appreciate the incredible work that was necessary to put this car on the road.
We all know the story of how Facebook was created. Just a couple of brilliant college friends that had nothing better to do, but they were not the only ones with over the top inventions. Two men named Barry Eastman and Mike Hand are credited with creating one of the fastest drag racers ever. While they may not have gained as much popularity or made as much money as Facebook it is still a very appealing creation in the racing world.
In contrast to the R18 e-Tron we recently featured, the next project car is a study in good old-fashioned knowhow, dedication and a huge helping of elbow grease. For several years now, a popular grassroots-focused car magazine has been holding a competition for a car that can perform best in an autocross, a drag race and a car show. A car that gathers the top points in each of these events is then awarded top honors. Easy enough, right? Just don't think though that whipping out your checkbook will do the trick, because a devious rule limits competitors to a total outlay of a little over $2000 dollars. In fact, the limit is based on what the current year the competition is running. So, for this car that was run in 2010, the total budget had to be limited to $2,010. But you can sell parts you don't need to recoup part of the budget, and safety items like rollcages, harnesses and OEM brake hoses aren't counted towards the car's cost. Still, there's only so much creative thinking you can do, and a lot of compromises have to be made to find the best balance between performance and cost.
Once in a while, a build comes along that simply takes one’s breath away. Forget about the numbers generated by the car, because they are just a consequence of the painstaking work and amazing detail that it took to put this car together. Not to mention the insane amount of money that went into making it happen. First of all, this Audi S1 replica uses a space frame chassis which integrates the rollcage, suspension mounting points and powertrain mounts. To this tube frame is attached the wishbone suspension which uses spherical links throughout and Bilstein dampers with remote reservoirs. Front brakes are 8-pot monsters while the rear uses an inboard brake system. Wheels are 18-inchers shod with racing slicks.
Sharp-eyed readers will immediately notice what's wrong with this picture. But read on if you don't get it now. First of all though, Volvos are not exactly the first choice when it comes to modding a car, although when professionally built and raced, this particular marque has had numerous successes, notably when they entered the 850 wagon in the BTCC. The owner of this particular car seems to be a Volvo fanatic, as his previous project car was a 242 model with a 315 hp V8 from an XC90 swapped into it. It's since been sold to give way to this 2JZ powered C70
It is a well accepted economic principle, that young fresh markets see a lot of incoming investment; new brands appear, new competitors pop up and everyone is excited to get a piece of this market. Later on, as these markets mature, a handful of strong players emerge and the consumers weed out the good from the mediocre. Finally comes a consolidation phase where only the strongest survive and you see a wave of sales, bankruptcies, bailouts, mergers, and acquisitions in a quest to stay alive.
People, in love, do things that don’t really make financial sense. But when you feel so strongly about something, the value of money becomes less of an issue and you become more willing to pay for things that you want or for experiences that you enjoy. The owner of this 1971 Turbocharged Dodge Dart we’re talking about today, sinking over $10,000 into this simple custom turbo conversion is no different.
You can never trust anyone anymore. Last week I was watching a video of a late 70s Jaguar fitted with a Small Block Chevy under the hood. And yes, it was a stock SBC making ~250hp at best, but that same configuration with a performance rebuild and some hidden bottle could have been capable of ~800 hp, all while looking like a stock 70s Jaguar. This Chevrolet Cobalt is no different! This Cobalt is a twin-charged monster with surgically placed modifications to improve the car in every aspect of performance peak power, power delivery, traction, launch, cornering ....etc
Boost heads are people who have been bitten HARD by the boost boost bug. These are people who look for boost in everything that they do, they befriend people with high boost cars, they spend most of their online time looking at dyno graphs, compressor maps, and talking to people about big boost mods, on the weekends they are at the track or at cars and coffee ignoring the Ferraris and Lambos and looking for that Golf with a GT40 strapped to it or the Z06 with the T88.
