2014 Nissan GTR Prices and Specs for Track Edition, Black Edition and Premium [Video]

Nissan.  Nissan.  Nissan.  With all the commotion surrounding the 2014 Corvette Stingray and the Porsche 991 911 Turbo, you couldn’t resist coming out with some tantalizing info on your own two-door monster (or should I say Godzilla), the 2014 GTR. Only instead of just drool-worthy videos of your car being slung around a road with near-reckless abandon or just cold, hard numbers, you give us both.  Here we have an exhaust-filled...

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Quarter-Mile, HP, Price, Top Speed

Soooooooo… The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat… Um, yeah.  I’m not entirely sure what else to say about this car other than it’s fast (very, very, very fast) and powerful (very, very, very powerful).  After its flabbergasting power, everything else seems trivial.  We first wrote about the Challenger SRT Hellcat in May, mentioning Dodge’s claim of over 600 horse for this latest of Detroit muscle cars and...

Horsepower to Reindeer Power Conversion

Back for the holidays is the TickTickVroom.com exclusive Horsepower to Reindeer Power conversion. Of all the methods of transport that exist, it must be argued that Santa Claus’s sleigh and eight flying reindeer rank among the coolest and fastest out there (He does make it around the world in one night including several stops, after all).  So, with Christmas and Santa’s annual trek coming up on Wednesday, it got me...

2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo Is in a League of Its Own

As if the Nissan GT-R Track Edition wasn’t enough of an insane supercar, Nissan has just lifted the silks on an even more bonkers version of the GT-R, the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo.  And, it is in a league of its own.  Basically, the Nissan GT-R Nismo is a GT3-inspired version of the normal GT-R.   Power for the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo is a massive 600 horse (up 55 hp from the standard car), and torque is “over 480...

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Takes on the Nurburgring [Udpated: Price]

After ten hours and 1,000 miles of Nurburgring track testing, a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 driven by Adam Dean lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife in an astonishingly quick 7:37.47.  Yeah, 7:37.47… That’s quick.  And, it was in the wet.  The track was slick, and by the end of the run, it was raining.  I know what you’re thinking… “Isn’t a Chevy Camaro Z28 a muscle car?  And, aren’t muscle cars...

Nismo Watch Concept: A Nissan GT-R for Your Wrist [Video]

Watches and cars go very well together.  So well, in fact, that I started a watch and car blog.  There have been a lot of watch and car combos over the years.  TAG Heuer and Mercedes.  Hublot and Ferrari.  Hublot and Senna.  Girard-Perregaux and Ferrari.  Oris and RAID Suisse-Paris Rally.  Breitling and Bentley.   The list goes on and on, but, they all have one thing in common.  They are watches with car themes.  Apart from a few...

2014 Corvette Stingray: 0-60 in 3.8 Seconds and 1.03 g Cornering [Video]

Way back in January when the 2014 Corvette Stingray debuted, Chevrolet promised it would be the best performing standard Corvette yet.  Then in April when Chevy announced the Stingray’s $51,995 price tag, they hinted at a sub-4 second 0-60 and cornering better than 1 g.  Our last hint at the Corvette Stingray’s performance came in May when we learned of the LT1 6.2 liter V8 and its 460 horses and 465 pound-feet of torque...

2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S: Ms. Stuttgart Has Arrived [Video and Photos]

The 40th anniversary Porsche 911 Turbo, aka Ms. Stuttgart 2014, has arrived, and judging by those rear fenders, she has some junk in the trunk… a 3.8 liter, twin-turbo flat-six to be precise.  She may look a lot like the past several Ms. Stuttgarts, but don’t be fooled the 2014 911 Turbo and Turbo S bring a lot to the table. Let start with that 3.8 liter flat-six, shall we.  In the… ahem… standard 911 Turbo,...
