Shootout video – Helicopter vs. Challenger SRT8 392

I promise that you will not see a more unique head to head race video today. While most people are editing their BMW 3-Series vs. Cadillac ATS footage we are busy scouring the depths of the inter web for diamonds in the rough. Where else can you watch a MD500 Helicopter goes head to head with a Dodge Challenger SRT8 392, with the winner taking on a 125 shifter go kart.

Turn your brain off and enjoy as this video is one very clever way to have eyeballs view your products and contact information. Well played RPM Rollbars and Precision Helicopters as you are both now on our radar.


Watch a Koenigsegg Agera R dust off a Ferrari 458 Italia

You truly can’t appreciate just how powerful the Koenigsegg Agera R is until you see it matched up against another super car that is putting down 562hp.  In this short flick we are on-board a Ferrari 458 Italia as it attempts to keep up with the Agera R as it puts the hammer down from a rolling start.

We have to warn you though that this video may cause a jaw injury as I know mine hit the keyboard when I saw how large the margin of victory was.  Consider us now the newest members of the Koenigsegg Agera R fan club and we can’t wait to see who’s doors it will blow off next.


The Ultimate SUV Shootout

What do you get when you have three flatbed trailers hauling a car, 3 vehicles that can each hold 5 people, state of the art 4-wheel drive systems, a combined total of more than 1500 horsepower, and a rented race track???

The answer is simple; it’s Motor Trends ultimate SUV shootout.  In this great video Motor Trend magazine has lined up 3 of the most potent SUVs ever created to see which one is the best.  They have chosen all 2012 models and starting with the BMW X5 M, Porsche Cayenne Turbo, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8.  We could give you all of their stats and first impressions but that is what the video portion of this posting is for.

So without further ado sit back strap in and enjoy the sounds of large displacement V8’s powering all 4 wheels.


11 Car Quarter Mile Shootout Courtesy of Motor Trend

This may just be the ultimate car shootout as the folks over at Motor Trend have found a great line up of super and halo cars to run down an empty airstrip.  The overall results did not surprise us however some of the middle pack runners did.  There was only one rule to be allowed to compete and that was that the car had to be an 2011 model.

Once you have watched the video and if you would like to learn about the entire event click the link here, Motor Trend Article from their latest Magazine.

We won’t spoil the results, but we will let you know the 11 cars that were involved in the ¼ shootout:

Audi R8 GT

BMW 1-Series M Coupe

Chevrolet Corvette Z06 with the Z07 package

Ferrari 458 Italia

Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca

Lexus LFA

Lotus Evora S

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Nissan GT-R

Porsche Cayman R

Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Not only is the concept of the shoot out a great one but the camera work and production value of this relatively short 4 minute video are so well done it could easily have been a segment on TV.  Well done Motor Trend!  keep up the amazing work!


Audi RS3 vs BMW 1-Series M-Coupe in a Drag Race

By now we have all seen the 1-Series M-Coupe vs M3 videos and Know that these cars are extremely closely related to each other.  So today we will see the Might new 2012 BMW 1-Series M-Coupe take on one of its segments competitors the Audi RS3.

On Paper this may or may not seem like a fair fight as both cars have 335hp and about 330lb-ft of torque.  The difference is how that Power gets applied to the tarmac.  The Bimmer sends the power to the rear wheels through a traditional 6-speed manual.  Whereas the Audi uses a dual clutch 7-speed auto and distributes its power out to all 4 tires.

Check out the ¼ mile drag race that Auto Express has put the two rockets through, the results were close and the reply analysis is very entertaining.
