  • 1970 Dodge Charger Tantrum resto mod for sale

    Less than a year after the car was first listed for sale, the 1970 Dodge Charger "Tantrum" has been listed yet again. Road & Track spotted the listing on Wednesday after Fusion Luxury Motors in Chatsworth, California, posted the incredibly cool muscle car for sale on Tuesday. The dealership selling the car happens to be the same company that listed the Charger Tantrum the first time last June. It's likely the car never sold at all. Fans of the build will recall this modified Charger comes from the Wisconsin-based shop SpeedKore, which debuted the Charger Tantrum at the 2015 SEMA show. The...

  • Chevy eCOPO Camaro runs 9s at the drag strip
    Electric Chevy eCOPO Camaro breaks into 9-second territory

    Chevy had a 9-second quarter-mile time in its sights, and the electric eCOPO Camaro has done just that. The electric drag racer has clocked a 9.837-second run. Thanks to video published by DragZine on Monday, we can see how much the eCOPO has improved. Just a few weeks ago, the electric eCOPO...

  • 2019 Ford Mustang
    Ford Mustang may get a more powerful turbo-4

    Ford ditched the V-6 engine for the 2018 model year, but that leaves buyers with fewer choices than rival Chevrolet Camaro customers. Ford is also stuck with a larger power gap between the standard 2.3-liter turbo-4 and the 5.0-liter V-8 than Chevrolet. It looks like Ford has a remedy for the...

  • Chevrolet eCOPO Camaro pulls a wheelie

    Chevrolet revealed its all-electric drag racer concept, the eCOPO Camaro, at the 2018 SEMA show last October, but now the race-prepped monster has made its first pass. Video published to YouTube last Monday shows the eCOPO Camaro makes hardly a peep as it launches off of the line and pulls a wheelie on the way down the dragstrip. Don't be confused by the rumbling and lumpy idle present in the video. That's the pickup truck the electric Camaro lines up against. It's easy to hear the (lack of) sound the eCOPO Camaro makes when the driver does a burnout to warm up the tires. When Chevrolet...

  • 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat
    2020 Dodge Charger to get Challenger's wide-body option?

    Dodge's updates for the Charger for 2019 were relatively light, especially considering the car's Challenger stablemate received the 797-horsepower SRT Hellcat Redeye option for the same year. It could be, perhaps, that the muscle car brand is saving more serious updates for the Charger's future...

  • Shelby Cobra 427 is up for sale

    Carroll Shelby raised a family and chickens, and nursed a leaky heart valve in Texas in the 1950s. He also raced cars and his body bore all the signs, scarred skin and busted bones. From those humble beginnings 36-year-old Shelby was already well on his way to becoming a globally known automotive designer and engineer. Within a handful of years his name would become synonymous with Ford performance cars in the decades to come. One in particular became one of the most-recognized sports cars of the 20th century: the AC Cobra. After he retired from racing in 1959, Shelby quickly scanned the...

  • 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

    The king of the sixth-generation Mustang arrived Monday when the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 was unveiled at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. While its power output is a talking point, racers took note of its standard hood pins. Ford said the new snake will have over 700 horsepower from its monster 5.2-liter V-8, which is blown by a 2.65-liter Eaton supercharger that spools 12 psi. While that's not a final horsepower rating, it's specifically, although not numerically, "more than enough." The latest Mustang to beat the Shelby name will be fast. Really fast. Ford...
