    This bolt on modified Gen V Viper in the videos below is quite impressive. There is good driving to go with it as the owner shifts cleanly and quickly. Previously, we saw a bolt on Gen V Viper beat a PP-Performance tuned CLS63 AMG from a roll and some fanboys doubted the outcome. Well, this bolt on Viper runs not one but two tuned M157 AMG's from PP-Performance. Let's start with the CLS63 AMG said to be a stage 2 PP-Performance tune. The Viper makes easy work of it as they dodge (pardon the pun) traffic: The E63 is said to have the RS850 PP-Performance package with upgraded turbos. The Viper makes easy work of it as well: How about a Mercedes-AMG GT S? Considering the car is stock this race favors the Viper. The AMG GT S gets the hit in the first run. It is quickly overtaken and passed. The second run has a lot of traffic and isn't very clean but the Viper pulls again: Does a tuned SLS AMG fare any better? Nope. The Viper spanks it too: With the AMG's all getting mopped up surely an Aventador will do better? Guess again. The nice thing at least is that this video has honks denoting the start of the race. It doesn't matter, Viper comes out on top yet again: The only real challenger to the Viper is a tuned McLaren MP4-12C. The McLaren does not have a passenger but the Viper does. In the first video it is pretty much door to door with the McLaren appearing to edge. In the second run it looks like the Viper jumps and holds off the McLaren. Overall, this goes to show how potent a bolt on Gen V Dodge Viper is as if this point needs reinforcing yet again. The videos themselves leave a lot to be desired as honks would be much appreciated as would steady camera angles from mounted GoPro's. What we get is a lot of head turning making for jumpy vids so these are not the best but it's still easy to tell the Viper is a beast.

    This new coupe looks the business! I really like the smooth flowing lines, and of course, the amazing power plant that comes with it. Good job MB!

    Well they were supposed to have many different cars to choose from with an expanded lineup. This is what they were going to produce: It's a shame they have fallen on hard times.

    It's a shame. I would love a lotus. The prices are pretty crazy and I am scared of the fact that people have totalled their cars in minor incidents because that front clamshell is $$$$$$

    Nice results here for Eurocharged modifications on the S55 3.0 liter twin turbo direct injected engine platform from the BMW F80 M3 and F82 M4. The Stage 1 tune on the stock exhaust puts down 452 wheel horsepower and 459 lb-ft of torque at the wheels on pump gas. Add in catless downpipes and power climbs to 477 at the wheels. The tune and downpipes provide a boost of just under 50 horsepower at the wheels over the catless downpipes alone. These are all pump gas numbers. With higher octane or meth injection of course things can be pushed further. Pricing is typical Eurocharged which means the best value for the quality in the business. $1400 for downpipes and a tune for the F80 M3 and F82 M4 is a steal. Tune only: Tune and catless downpipes vs. catless downpipes only: Downpipes:

    Another year and another LA Auto Show is in the books. There were some exciting debuts. Alfa Romeo made a splash with their new Giulia. Mercedes-AMG of course had the new C63 AMG coupe which is gorgeous. Not enough can be said about Ford and their GT350R Mustang and the GT. BMW of course had their M4 GTS, Dodge their Viper ACR, and Acura their NSX. The emphasis on enthusiast cars may be diminishing but they are still alive and well with some of the best iterations yet. These are exciting times for performance enthusiasts. That is not to say everything is all sunshine and rainbows as the presence of Lotus basically evaporated and manufacturers keep pushing electric drivetrains which is where we are headed. The enthusiast market probably has 20 years left at best before autonomous electrics that drive you take over. Enjoy it while it lasts. Here's a recap of our coverage: LAAS 2015 - BMW wants $134,200 for the 2016 F82 M4 GTS LAAS 2015 - Volkswagen is delusional and acts like everything is fine by deflecting attention to electric powertrains LAAS 2015 - The 'new' 2017 R231 Mercedes SL is the old Mercedes SL LAAS 2015 - Alfa Romeo brings a few Giulias and a few gorgeous women to Los Angeles LAAS 2015 - The world's ugliest F82 BMW M4 created by LT Motorwerks, LB Performance, and Crzy Engineering LAAS 2015 - We can't get enough of the new Ford GT LAAS 2015 - The C205 C63 AMG coupe is gorgeous - Mercedes-AMG brings their Edition 1 AMG C63 S Coupe LAAS 2015 - Aston Martin's bespoke DB10 created for James Bond LAAS 2015 - The second generation Audi R8 is simply stunning LAAS 2015 - Mercedes-AMG brings the AMG GT GT3 race car and it is badass LAAS 2015 - The Lotus US presence is on life support - Exige V6 Cup photos LAAS 2015 - Go racing with Porsche's Cayman GT4 Clubsport for $165k - PDK Cayman GT4 #LAAS2015

    $165,000 is a lot of money for a track toy. If you have the coin Porsche has the car. This is the Cayman GT4 Clubsport. What do you get for that money? A stripped out interior, roll cage, GT3 cup car front suspension system, racing harness, upgraded brakes, larger fuel tank, and fire suppression system. Does all of that add up to $165k? Well, we do not know. The main change is that the manual transmission is ditched for the PDK dual clutch transmission. Interesting, considering that this pretty much admits that for serious track duty the PDK is the better performance option. It also proves that Porsche could easily give the standard Cayman GT4 the PDK but is refusing based on politics to maintain an artificial performance hierarchy as with a PDK transmission the Cayman GT4 would step on too many 911's toes. This is why PorscheBoost has been saying for some time now that the manual transmission decision is solely driven by internal politics. The only way you will get a Cayman GT4 with a PDK transmission from Porsche is with this Clubsport model. Considering it is not street legal and comes with almost a $100k penalty we would be perfectly happy with the standard GT4. For guys that want to race, this Cayman might just be the perfect car. #LAAS2015

    Anyone remember when the future was bright over at Lotus Cars? Allow us to jog your memory. It was way back in 2010 when Lotus was showing off a bunch of concepts including a 2013 Esprit. Lotus had an awesome presence at car shows and was generating huge buzz with their upcoming lineup. It all fizzled out as you may have noticed there was no Esprit built for 2013. The other four concept cars they debuted in 2010 named the Elan, Eterne, Elite, and Elise also amounted to nothing more than wishful thinking. Lotus did end up producing a new Exige a variant of you see below except they do not sell it in the USA for street use. All they sell is the Evora which pretty much was supposed to be a stopgap car until they launched the new Esprit among others. Lotus did not even have their own booth but a dealer brought this Exige to the LA Auto Show. Their presence is almost non-existent. It is a shame as they produce cars for enthusiasts. With Lotus not being able to even sell their full offering worldwide it is fair to wonder if at least in the US their best days are behind them and if they even have a future in this market. #LAAS2015
