World’s Fastest Rolls-Royce

October 25, 2011 at 9:33 am

Granted, this is not you r typical Roller, but this is to all intents and purposes the World’s Fastest Rolls-Royce! Matt Wright’s Crewe-build 1974 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow may still strongly resemble the gentleman’s express that left the line there decades ago, but thanks to the transplant of 588cu Chevrolet V8 it’s somewhat faster. Fast enough to run an impressive 7.94 second quarter mile at 175mph! The car has been prepared by WG Racing and uses a cutting-edge selection of the latest drag tricks and lightening methods to turn it into a veritable supercar slayer, taking well over two seconds off the time taken by the Bugatti Super Sport to cover the same distance. A bespoke Chrome-Moly twin tube chassis, suspension [...]

April 11, 2011 at 8:59 pm

With the first example of Mopar Challenger V-10 Drag Pak now delivered to customers, it’s becoming clear what an awesome machine this is. As the only factory-built, V-10 powered race-ready dragster the car has shown amazing performance. On the opening day of NHRA Division 1 National Open event in Atco, NJ a Challenger V-10 driven by Dave Thomas set a new record in ET and mph categories in the AA/SA class. Dave did it just two weeks after taking ownership of his Mopar Drag Pak, with a 9.43-second elapsed time (ET) at 143.90 mph during a test session. That’s an outstanding result fro such a ready-made package. It can beat almost any bonafide custom-built dragsters in its class. The 2011 [...]

Lingenfelter is one of the oldest and most powerful names when it comes to tuning muscle cars. Their glorious heritage is full of world records for fastest Corvettes. Since the introduction of the new Camaro they’ve prepared lots of powerful packages for it, but sometime for fun they also make a monstrous dragster out of it too! Like this one, powered by a GM LS9 engine with an Eaton TVS2300 supercharger, JE pistons, CNC ported heads with OEM titanium intake valves and sodium filled hollow step exhaust valves. It has a colossal 1243 hp. It does the quarter mile in 8.997 @ 158.8 mph.

This car you see here is the project Vicotr 3 by Red Victor team which will be presented during the VXR Power Festival, to be held at Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire this Bank Holiday, August 28-29. And it’s going to be the fastest Vauxhall of all time thanks to its massive 8.8 liter GM V8 engine which is said to be capable of delivering over 3,000 hp! So it can reach top speed of over 240 mph in quarter mile. Now you are probably thinking that’s a dragster so it doesn’t count, but you’re wrong! It might be a drag car, but the makers of Red Victor 3 claim that it’s going to be street legal as well! We’re not [...]
