PostHeaderIcon Bah, Humbug: Bugatti’s Gone Cold on Doing a Top Speed Run for The Chiron

The world has been waiting two years for the Bugatti Chiron to post a top speed run. We’ve been teased about it before, but now it looks all that teasing will be for naught. Bugatti has now closed the door on a top speed run for the Chiron. Word of the company’s decision on the issue comes straight from the mouth of CEO Stephen Winkelmann, who said that a top speed run isn’t in any of Bugatti’s priorities at the moment. Whether that position holds true or changes remains to be seen, but if you’re looking for a threat to the Koenigsegg Agera RS’ world record top speed of 277.8 mph, that conversation, at least for now, starts and ends with the Hennessey Venom F5. Bugatti’s not joining that party, much to the dismay of everyone.

PostHeaderIcon Is The VW ID R About To Tackle The Nurburgring?

As one of the most astounding racing cars in the world, the electric Volkswagen ID R seems to be gunning for the Nurburgring Lap Record. Sources close to the company reported that Volkswagen actually booked the track for May next year. We suspect it will try to send the slightly retuned electric ID R to that very track in order to slash the electric car record and take the scalp off the Nio EP9. That one managed to lap the Green Hell in 6 minutes 45.9 seconds. It is, obviously, a really fast car. Yet, considering the blistering Volkswagen ID R hill climb run at Pikes Peak where it smashed the previous record by 15 seconds and managed to finish the course in 7min 57.148 seconds, I can only imagine it will do the same at Nurburgring.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Challenges Itself to Post a 6:30 Lap Time at The Nurburgring

Porsche is shooting for the stars with its latest plan to conquer the Nurburgring. The German automaker is laying down the gauntlet on the vehicle that ends up succeeding the 918 Spyder supercar. The goal isn’t just to beat the 918 Spyder’s 6:57 lap time at the ‘Ring, but to demolish it by nearly 30 seconds. Porsche’s fascination — it might even be an obsession at this point — with the Nurburgring lap record for production cars won’t be dictated by a specific kind of powertrain, but by whichever powertrain allows it to shave almost 30 seconds off of the 918 Spyder’s lap time at the ‘Ring.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes Invents the Nürburgring “4-Door Coupe” Record with the AMG GT 63 S

Nürburgring lap times are pretty damn important these days, with the top manufacturers duking it out at the Green Hell for bragging rights and a momentary spot in the limelight. Now, it looks like Mercedes is inventing its own record to grab more attention for the AMG GT 63 S.

PostHeaderIcon Video: The Vesco Turbinator II Cracks the 500-MPH Barrier at the Bonneville Salt Flats!

Things are getting pretty wild these days in the world of ultimate velocity record runs. The latest comes from the Bonneville Salt Flats World Finals, held earlier this month on October 2nd, in which the above-featured turbine-driven rail managed to eclipse the current world top speed record for a wheel-driven vehicle.

PostHeaderIcon Take a Look Back at VW’s Record-Breaking Run Up Pikes Peak: Video

This summer, Volkswagen conquered the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb race with their fantastic I.D. R prototype, which was driven by Romain Dumas up the mountain in a record time of 7:57.148, 16 seconds under Sebastien Loeb’s 5-year-old record.

Motorsport is still a relevant marketing tool and battle-scarred Volkswagen decided the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is the perfect place to showcase its electric technology. The race, which has been going since 1916, sees competitors climb up the 12.42-mile-long course all the way to 14,000 feet. Nowadays, there’s no more dirt at Pikes Peak, but that doesn’t make the challenge itself any less daunting.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Mustang RTR Drifts the Entire Nurburgring

Vaughn Gittin Jr. completed a full lap of the Nurburgring, doing so while drifting theFord Mustang RTR drift the whole way. The stunt was performed without the objective of setting a lap time. The achievement was no less remarkable, though, because Gittin Jr. became the first driver to drift a car in the 12.8-mile course.

PostHeaderIcon The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 Steals Speed Record at Laguna Seca, But We’re Not Impressed

The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 has dominated the speed record for production sedans at Laguna Seca by almost a second with Randy Pobst pushing it around the track in just 1:37:54. That beats out the Cadillac CTS-V by almost a second, the Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio by nearly two seconds, the BMW M5 by 2.4 seconds, and the Mercedes-AMG C63S by nearly three seconds. All of this is actually pretty impressive with the exception of one thing – the Project 8 might be a production car, but it’s hardly that. Its production run is limited to just 300 units, and it’s so heavily modified that it’s really not fair to compare it to the mass-produced models that it just beat.

Lets lake the CTS-V, for example. Sure, it’s a modified version of the CTS, but it’s not modified to the extent that it is that different. The same thing goes for the Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio, the M5, and the C63 S. They are all badass sedans, sure, but the Project 8 has a special distinction – only the front doors and roof panel are original. Everything else from the XE it’s based on has been replaced or manipulated in one way or another. That’s not the case with any of the cars that now, sadly, sit below the Project 8 at Laguna Seca. The Project 8 pumps out 592 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque from a 5.0-liter V-8. Do you think you can even get a V-8 in the XE, even in its highest trim? Sorry, not gonna happen. Oh, and the Project 8 cost more than three times that of the range-topping XE S AWD trim level. So, Jaguar wants a pat on the back for breaking the “production sedan” record at Laguna Seca, but the fact of the matter is that it had to use a limited-run car that’s heavily modified to do it. We’re not impressed one bit. This is hardly a production sedan. When Jaguar can beat out the competition with a mass-produced car, then maybe we’ll talk.

But, I digress. Even if this record-breaking run is a ferociously obnoxious
pile of PR crap stinking up our office, Randy Pobst was behind the wheel, and it’s always a blast to watch this man drive. So, we’ve posted the video here for you to watch and enjoy.

PostHeaderIcon The Lucid Air Just Slaughtered Tesla and Jaguar’s EVs Around Laguna Seca

In addition to playing host to the Monterey Motorsports Reunion, the Ferrari Challenge, and numerous other high-profile racing events, Laguna Seca is also the latest battleground for cutting-edge EV performance bragging rights, with makes like Tesla and Jaguar attacking the world-famous Californian circuit to show off their battery-powered speed chops. Now, the Lucid Motors Air, the up-and-coming sedan from the Newark-based company, just reset the lap record for production-based EVs. Kind of.

PostHeaderIcon Video: BMW is Up to More Weirdness with the M2 Competition

The BMW M2 is back in the headlines with another bizarre record-breaking stunt. It’s already claimed the world record — or so BMW says — for popping 79 balloons in 60 seconds with a laser on its front grille. Now, the laser is gone, and in its place is a blade that’s attached to the rear of the coupe. The goal this time is to cut down more than 87 bamboo poles in 60 seconds. Did the BMW M2 Competition do it? Let’s find out.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M2 Competition Breaks Weird World Record in The Name of Marketing

BMW teased a new world record set by the M2 Competition a few weeks ago. It was unclear exactly what that record was, but the German automaker has now released a short video detailing exactly what it is. To say that it’s a strange record would be doing the whole attempt a disservice. And yet, for some reason, we got excited that the M2 Competition broke a record we didn’t even know existed. Why? Because it used a laser in doing it. That’s right, folks — a laser.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Aventador SVJ breaks Nurburgring record!

It’s been only 24 hours since Lamborghini released a short video of the upcoming Aventador SVJ on the Nurburgring, and the Italian firm announced that the supercar set a new lap record for production cars at the Nurburgring. The Aventador SVJ lapped the German track in 6:44.97 minutes, a full minute quicker than the previous record holder.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Dominates The New Australian Racetrack

Porsche has been going around the world, breaking lap records one after the other with the new 911 GT2 RS. This time, however, it sets a new record instead of breaking one. The virgin racetrack in Australia gets smoked by the 911 GT2 RS, and we are quite positive this record will stay for a long time.

PostHeaderIcon Honda Civic Type R Sets New Lap Record

Even if you’re a diehard domestic lover with a heart made of American iron and spare V-8’s, ‘ya gotta give it up for the Honda Civic Type R. Over the year, the H Badge has worked hard to refine and polish this FWD hero to a gleaming finish, and the latest fifth-generation FK8 that dropped in 2017 at the Geneva Motor Show brings all the tricks and innovation together into a single high-speed package. To prove its worth, the new R’d-out Civic has been on a worldwide tour, smashing lap records as it goes, with the latest fast results coming out of a trip to Portugal.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Teaser Mystery Record Attempt for the M2 Competition

It’s been just a couple of months since BMW unveiled the M2 Competition and the Germans are already looking to set a new world record with the coupe. In a newly launched video called “A challenge extended is a challenge accepted,” BMW is teasing a record attempt that takes place in England. Unfortunately, there aren’t many hints as to what kind of benchmark this is.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak Breaks Electric Record at Goodwood FOS

This weekend saw the 25th running of the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and with it, a host of impressive machinery came out to strut their stuff up the short hillclimb course. While there was certainly no shortage of fast cars on hand, one in particular stood out from the rest, as the Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak managed to reset the record books for all-electric racers at the event.

PostHeaderIcon Video: Drone Speed World Record Broken at Goodwood FOS

This year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed plays host to loads of impressive machinery, from the McLaren P1 by Lanzante, to the ItalDesign GT-R50, to an array of Singer Porsche 911’s. But there was something else in attendance for 2018 that may have flown under your radar, namely the record-breaking Wingcopter XBR, a drone that just set a new Guinness World Record for drone top speed.

Flat out, the quad copter managed an impressive 240.06 km/h, or just under 150 mph. The official record is for remote-controlled tilt-rotor aircraft, and the pilot responsible for taking the Wingcopter into the record books was champion drone racer Luke Bannister.

The video is just 1 minute, 20 seconds in length, and shows some high-speed footage taken from the drone, as well as commentary from the record-breaking team. All in all, we’re excited to see just how far racers are willing to push drone technology in the name of speed.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin plans to beat Porsche’s new Nurburgring record

Ah, Nurburgring records. Where would we be without them? Automakers would have one less benchmark to fight over, and we’d miss some fantastic footage with fast cars lapping the Nordschleife. 2018 is already an interesting year with Porsche having broken the all-time record set by Stefan Bellof way back in 1983, but it’s about to get even more fascinating. That’s because Aston Martin could improve on that record with the upcoming Valkyrie supercar.

PostHeaderIcon The Honda Civic Type R Smashes New Record, This Time at Silverstone

The Honda Civic Type R has broken another front-wheel-drive lap record to add to its growing list of records it already has under its belt. This time around, the Civic Type R went to Silverstone in the U.K. to claim a new lap record for a front-wheel-drive production car with a time of 2:31.320, beating the previous record that was held by the previous-generation Civic Type R.
