La F-TYPE R est la définition même de la voiture de sport.

Équipée du moteur V8 5 Litres Suralimenté de 550 CH CEE, et développant un couple de 680 Nm CEE, elle offre une expérience de conduite sans précédent. Son potentiel est exploité au maximum – 0-100 km/h en 4,2 secondes – et le fait figurer parmi les meilleures de sa catégorie, en matière de puissance mais également de rapport poids/puissance. La F-TYPE R tire également le meilleur parti de sa structure ultra-rigide, lui permettant une plus grande agilité et une meilleure maîtrise de la puissance du véhicule
Le moteur V8 5L de 550 CH CEE est incroyablement puissant. Son compresseur de suralimentation élargi alimente le système pour un couple maximal stupéfiant de 680 Nm à partir de 2 500 tr/min. L’accélération est rapide et progressive, la réaction est immédiate et prévisible. L’injection directe guidée alimente très précisément le carburant dans les chambres de combustion au centre, à des pressions pouvant atteindre 150 bar, pour une combustion plus nette et plus efficace. Il est également doté d'un système Stop/Start intelligent très réactif qui peut améliorer la consommation de carburant de 5%.

Fischer Motorsports 2,000 hp Ford GT

This street going GT can pump out 2,000 hp on methanol, and when that’s not available it’s flexible enough to still build big numbers utilizing other fuels. It’s the creation of Shawn Fischer at Fischer Motorsports.

Fischer worked to develop a custom 4.5 liter supercharger that would be part of an overall package to breathe new life into the GT. “The beauty of the screw system is that you have almost instant boost, and great response on throttle tip in. The fastest drag cars in the world are screw supercharged cars because of the torque they’re able to generate off throttle,” says Fischer.

1969 Rupp Super Sno-Sport

Dual tracks, with a Hillborn Fuel injected 308 Ford with Gurney Eagle heads. It puts out 525h.p at 7500rpm. Built by Jim Head and driven by Mickey Rupp himself - this is 1 of 1 Produced.

The world's first snowmobile dragster was the Rupp Super Sno-Sport, a 525 horsepower (at 7500rpm), 308 cubic inch racing research racing. Its top speed was estimaed at 150 mph and braking is by disk brakes on the drive axle coupled with a cable-release parachute. It was conceived by H.E. (Mick) Rupp, 32 year old president of the Ohio company, who havs successfully raced at the Indy 500, Sprint and karting tracks all over the USA. The Super Sno-Sport weights 1,000 pounds and was valued in excess of $50.000.

1963 Giugiaro's Chevrolet Testudo

Bill Mitchell at GM styling sent two Corvair chassis to Italy with an idea towards selling a European styled Corvair on the continent. One went to Pininfarina and the other to Bertone, where Giugiaro was working.
The Testudo held a special place in Giugiaro’s heart. “There’s something special and affectionate about what I feel for the Testudo. It was the first prototype with which I had been given a free hand, without restraints, and the end result captured the attention of the entire automobile world.”
Even if Bill Mitchell’s idea of a localized Euro Corvair never came true, it led to a very influential concept cars, and Tony Lapine himself said that it directly influenced his design of the Porsche 928.

(Testudo is Italian for turtle, an allusion to the sharp beltline separating top and bottom halves of the car)

2014 Camaro Z/28

The legendary Camaro Z/28 is back for the 2014 model year.
Originally introduced in 1967, Camaro Z/28 was designed specifically to compete in the Sports Car Club of America's Trans-Am 2 class. Lightweight, nimble and incredibly powerful, the original Z/28 was designed ideally for road racing. The 2014 Z/28 carries the same racing credentials, running a lap around the Nurbürgring in an impressive 7:37.47 in inclement weather.

A hand-assembled LS7 engine powers the Camaro Z/28, boasting an incredible 505 horsepower and 481 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful normally aspirated regular production small block V8 ever. The highest-quality parts and precision assembly elevate the redline level to 7000 rpm. The LS7 is mated to a TREMEC® TR6060 6-speed manual gearbox that features close-ratio gearing - optimized for the engine’s power characteristics. The TREMEC is coupled with a 5.1:1-ratio short-throw shifter to ensure quick and precise shifts

Camaro Z/28 has aerodynamic treatments designed to produce downforce — specifically at track speeds. A large splitter connects to an underbody panel to further reduce lift. Fender flares over the front and rear wheels and extended rocker panels contribute to aerodynamic stability. Z/28 also features an aggressive rear spoiler and functional diffuser to complete the fully integrated aerodynamic package.

The tires on Camaro Z/28 are robust and massive Pirelli® PZERO™ Trofeo R† 305/30ZR19 summer-only tires† — ideal for lateral motions, like corner entry and exit. Camaro Z/28 features lightweight Brembo® carbon Ceramic Matrix™ rotors and fixed, monoblock calipers. The huge 394 x 36 mm front rotors are paired with 6-piston calipers, while the 390 x 32 mm rear rotors are paired with 4-piston calipers. Compared to similar-size two-piece steel rotors, the lightweight and large carbon calipers save 22 pounds, while encouraging impressive stopping power and heat toleration — ideal for track use.

The all-new driver and front passenger racing seats are designed by RECARO®. Aggressive bolsters ensure both passenger and driver remain firmly planted, even in high-energy driving situations. A flat-bottom steering wheel opens leg room for entry and exit, as well as quicker heel/toe shifting. A short-throw shifter allow for rapid, confident shifting.
