2015 Ford Mustang Specs – GT Gets 435 HP

Not to be outdone by Dodge and their obscene 707 horse Challenger SRT Hellcat, Ford has just release their own muscle car news.  Of course, I have to be referring to the 2015 Ford Mustang GT and its more-than-respectable-in-fact-its-downright-great 5.0-liter V8 churning out 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.  By the way, that’s 20 more horse than a 996 Porsche 911 Turbo.  Food for thought.   Not to be outdone by...

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...

Megane Record Nurburgring Lap in Renault Megane RS 275 Trophy-R

Not many cars can lap the Nurburgring North Loop (aka Nordschleife) in under 8 minutes, especially not teeny-tiny little front-wheel-drive hot hatches.  A few months ago, the Seat Leon Cupra 280 did it in 7:58.4, setting a new ‘Ring lap record for a front-wheel-drive car.  The previous record holder, Renault, was understandably miffed.  So, the plucky French carmaker came back for a Megane record Nurburgring lap.  What Megane? ...

The Watches of the Gumball 3000

In the last TickTickVroom post, I blabbered on about the starting grid of the 2014 Gumball 3000 rally, particularly about the incredible, amazing, wonderful, astonishing cars.  And, that is a very worthwhile topic.  However, wherever the wealthy gather to play with million dollar toys, some pretty great watches gather with them.  So, I thought I’d like to write a quick post on the Watches of the Gumball 3000.   In summary,...

Harley Earl Corvette: A One-of-a-Kind

Not too long ago, I was at the Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance, and I was up close and personal with something I never thought I would be fortunate enough to see in person… the Harley Earl Corvette.  To be honest, before that day in Boca, I never really knew the details of Harley J. Earl’s one-of-a-kind 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible (aka Shop Order 10323).  That is to say… I knew it existed, but...

[UPDATE: The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat’s 6.2-liter supercharged V8 officially produces a massive 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.  Holy crap.] With a 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 producing over 600 horsepower, we knew the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat exhaust note would be mean… Just plain mean.  Oh, and loud… Mean and loud.  But, we didn’t have any idea it would be this mean and loud and...
