When Anthony Serra was ready to resurrect his racing career after a seven-year hiatus, he wasn’t going to skimp on a new chariot. No stranger to the podium, with a decade-long stint as a club and pro driver in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, Serra could’ve called any number of tuners, builders or…
Video companion to the article we just posted (bit.ly/Dyson-Porsche-962), with some BTS of the 962 at Lime Rock Park and in the Dyson Racing shop getting restored for Rennsport.
When speaking with Rob Dyson, you get a sense of just how capable, present and dominant the Porsche 962 was in the world of prototype racing. For almost a decade, the Kevlar-bodied, aluminum monocoque — Porsche’s first, made of folded aluminum sheets riveted and glue-bonded together — prototype was racing worldwide…
Years ago, Scotto wouldn’t have considered a muscle-car project like the Napalm Nova. An Audi 80 rally car? Maybe. A Hayabusa-powered Smart ForTwo? Definitely. Rescuing an old, unsophisticated shambles from the crusher? Not bloody likely.
The Fuller “Double Down” might not be the first all-wheel-drive ‘32 Ford Roadster in existence, but with an 850 horsepower, 576-cubic-inch motor and Indycar suspension, it’s certainly the meanest.
A lot has been lost with the mechanical connection between sports cars and humans since the electronic boom has consumed them. Human interaction and mechanized feel has disappeared with computers doing most of the heavy lifting: steering, throttle and suspension.
Rumors have been swirling that Ferrari is building a lighter, faster, and all-around hotter version of the F12berlinetta—a car that some have dubbed the “F12 GTO.”
When Andre Romualdo was looking to buy a performance car as a platform to build upon, he knew the Australian-sourced Pontiac G8 offered an affordable starting point. With an already stout V8 offering 361 horsepower and 386 lb.-ft. of torque from the factory in GT guise, on top of a performance-honed ZETA chassis…
Visiting a friend at a New Jersey Porsche dealership recently, I happened upon a magical moment. A new owner taking delivery of this gorgeous Arena Red hybrid hyper hauler.
Before I step foot in or even see the McLaren, the mere thought of driving gets my heart racing to a significant beat. A shot of adrenaline is coursing through my veins, dilating my pupils and making me incredibly giddy. It’s similar to the feeling you get when sex is imminent. This is supercar lust on a primal level.
Last year, before RxSpeed even launched, I was invited to take part in the BFGoodrich launch of their All-Terrain T/A KO2 tire down in Baja California, Mexico, and take routes that are in the Baja 500/1000. And while the story is old now, I never really got to explore how amazing it was. I wanted to revisit it here.
We’re following the restoration of Dyson Racing’s Porsche 962-101 that’s heading to Rennsport.
Rebuilding racing motors and seeing engine development firsthand is a car-nerd’s dream.
Having children is undoubtably expensive. But have you ever wondered what you could do with the money you saved? With some smart money allocation and a knack for engineering, this custom Bonneville hotrod will clue you in that you can create a stellar creation from the ground up in your garage. Kids or cars?
Auto hacks and friends of RxSpeed, Michael Spinelli and Roger Garbow, recently went to Lime Rock Park to sit shotgun in the 1244 horsepower Hennessey Venom GT where getting to 155mph in less than half a mile is easily repeatable.
Sometimes you just need a little room to let an AMG breathe. Luckily, we know of a place. And remember folks, this is a four-door sedan that elderly people drive.
Racetracks are magical places. Even if you’re not there to race or drive at all, there’s a certain feeling associated with the acrid stank of race gas and burned rubber. Which is why I jumped at the opportunity to be a “spotter” for a Porsche Club of America member.
Thanks to the proliferation of prototyping and high-quality testing in the past few years, tuning a vehicle has become something that isn’t going to grenade your motor after 10 pulls. More so, it’s become easy to assume you can get a modest gain by either reflashing the ECU, bolting on an exhaust and intake, or…
We take an up close look at the 2015 Long Beach Grand Prix and break down what makes the race a spectacle.
Turning a Willys Jeep into a certified hotrod is one thing that Jesse Spade set out to do, and with a 400-plus-horsepower Hemi pushing around 2,000 pounds of mass, he accomplished being an outlier in a loaded Jeep market.
