    BMW with a major new model often does a concept car that hypes and shows off the design language. Now, this is an early leak so more photos along with higher resolution pictures will come but the first thing to remember is that the real thing will not look like this. They will try to get close though. You get a basic idea of the direction in which they are headed with the 8-Series. Also keep in mind, the 8-Series is expected to replace the 6-Series. Why? Well, apparently the 4-Series keeps moving up in size and the 8 is close enough to the 6 to create redundancy. However BMW works it out do finally expect a real M8.

    Well, this is quite the lineup. The twin turbo Gen V Viper ACR in the video you should know from a video earlier this month where it went up against a 4.0 liter Whipple Coyote and a big turbo MKIV Supra on the highway. The Viper has a twin turbo setup from Nth Moto who builds some of the strongest Gen V's in the country. This ACR is still on the stock motor which means it is making under 1200 whp or so. The ACR aerodynamics are also still in place and they create extreme downforce but also extreme drag at highway speeds. The three C6 Corvettes in the video are blown although the Z06 and Grand Sport have centrifugal blowers. That means they are top end terrors. The Z06 obviously has the larger 7.0 liter LS7 V8 although this is a larger 441 ci built example on E85 and meth running an F1A while the C6 Grand Sport has the newer and larger F1X which is a nasty, nasty blower. The Z06 records the first run but it is botched. The second run has the Z06 do better before getting out of the gas again quickly. Next up is the ZR1 and the Grand Sport. The ZR1 is the camera car and the ZR1 also sprays on the run. It's over quick but the ZR1 pulls. The ZR1 takes on the Viper next without any juice. The ZR1 opens a lead and looks to take the hit but the Viper pulls back up top. Some very strong cars.

    Maybe this is a good thing? Lotus has struggled which is no secret to anyone and they did not have the ability to roll out their entire product lineup (limited as it may be) worldwide. With an infusion of Chinese cash perhaps Lotus can return to some sort of glory or at least once against offer lightweight enthusiast vehicles. Lotus was already a part of Proton of Malaysia which did not seem to help the brand much if at all. Geely (which owns Volvo) is buying 49.9% of Proton which will result in a 51% controlling stake in Lotus. Really, the goal seems to be to get Proton and Lotus is just a bonus. The real question here is if this acquisition will be good for Lotus and its future. Nobody seems to know the answer and Geely's focus in the deal likely is not Lotus and sports cars. Source

    There is no better place to 'prove it' than the dragstrip. An impressive timeslip goes much further in proving what a car can do than an impressive dyno run. LMR took their 1000 horsepower sixth generation Camaro SS to the strip and laid down some awesome runs. This car will do a 9.5X @ 148.95 miles per hour. Now that is moving! What is the mod list? As follows: 2017 Camaro "Ominous" LMR 1000HP Package 1st Qtr Test Session with the New Build 416 ci Engine LMR Heads and Cam Procharger Supercharger LMR Custom Fuel System American Racing Headers Prototype Circle D Converter Do not underestimate centrifugal blowers on the strip. LMR does not specify which Procharger unit they are using and they do not share the cost of this build either. Late Model Racecraft tends to be tight lipped with all the details but there is no arguing with the result.

    BMW lifted their gag order on the new F90 M5 and suddenly the internet is flooded with 'reviews' of the prototype. Basically, these are propaganda pieces designed to flatter new M5. You are not going to see any of these journalists sitting next to a BMW test driver and criticizing the car. These are not reviews but marketing fluff. Do we learn anything about the car? Well, the ability to go from all wheel drive to rear wheel drive appears seamless. The question BimmerBoost wants an answer to is what is the weight distribution? Additionally, what does the car weigh? Nobody seems to bring those points up. The idea of being able to switch from two wheel drive to four wheel drive on the fly is brilliant in appeasing purists and also appeasing those who just want to go fast off the line. You will finally see good elapsed times on the strip from the M5 even from terrible drivers. Complaints about traction will disappear. Somehow, despite the technology and traction advantages incorporated the F90 just does not feel like a real M5. Without a manual transmission and with far more weight up front BMW is not offering anything that stands out. Take a look at a couple of the 'reviews' below and see what you think.

    BMS seems to be tackling a ton of platforms these days. The VR30DDTT engine platform in the Infiniti Q50 and Q60 models is a perfect candidate for tuning. The 3.0 twin turbo direct injected V6 is available in 300 horsepower and 400 horsepower from the factory. This is the 300 horsepower version which obviously is underrated. BMS recorded the car at 321 rear wheel horsepower and 317 lb-ft of rear wheel torque completely stock on an E30 blend: That number jumps up significantly with the Stage 1 tuning box. Horsepower goes to 413 at the wheels and torque jumps to 412 lb-ft at the wheels. Why even bother paying the premium for the Red Sport models? It will be interesting to see if the Red Sport models sees larger peak figures with a BMS tuning box as well. More details from BMS:

    The McLaren 570S just continues to impress. As you know last year a stock McLaren 570S on street tires managed a 10.2 @ 135.2 in the 1/4 mile. The 570S also recently broke into the 9's with bolt ons running a 9.9 @ 140.5. This particular example has an exhaust and associated cosmetic upgrades. For minor mods the result is incredible: This 570S is on the verge of 9's on street tires. The 570S is simply a damn strong car.

    I love Lotus and what their cars stand for and I really like what Geely has done with Volvo, I hope they can work some similar magic here because it would be fantastic to see more handling centric performance cars on the road. Even though the old CEO's ideas were far fetched it would be awesome to have a proper lotus super car developed.

    The following was pulled from 6speedonline.com Redgutz on the Champion Motorsports Dyno in for her turbo upgrade. Results: 655 wheel HP and 641 wheel torque on Ms109 race gas. 610 wheel HP on 93 octane. 655 wheel HP is about 773 horsepower at the crank. Modding the car is now over. Final mod list: Champion Motorsports upgraded turbos - 68mm VTGs Champion Motorsports intercoolers Tubi catless race exhaust GIAC tune (probably called Stage 4) BMC filter Champion race diverter valves Stock: plenum, headers, Y pipe and transmission. No meth injection or nitrous. Here is the video of a Dyno pull. Flames happen. Will post Dyno graphs as soon as I get them.
