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...

Trident Iceni Diesel Supercar Is Coming to the US (Pricing)

In August 2012, we told you about the Norfolk, England-based Trident Sports Cars and their Trident Iceni diesel supercar.  In that particular post, I extolled the virtues of its rather powerful 6.6-liter turbo-diesel and six-speed automatic gearbox.  And, now, the Trident Iceni is officially ready to launch, and it’s coming to the U.S.   Trident claims the Iceni is the “the world’s fastest and most fuel...

2015 Subaru WRX STI: Yep, I was right… I want one. [NAIAS, Video] (UPDATE: Pricing)

As I’m writing this post, I’m watching The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.  I can be said that this is not the greatest of films.  But, there can be no argument that the cars featured are a bit inspirational.  I’m seriously a hairsbreadth from grabbing the keys and being very, very irresponsible.   I recently sold my 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, and since then I’ve been aching for another fun...
