There’s some things that the Aussies do best: Make insanely powered pickup trucks (utes to those down under), fishing and insects that kill you.
Here’s another to add to he list… burnouts!
The Aussies obsession with the burnout is unrivalled. Their insanely powered competition cars produce both enough power, smoke and flames to put anything you’ve seen in your local “cruise” to shame. These guys literally burn rubber until either they annihilate the tyres or catch fire.
Check out the video below from 1320 Video highlighting some of the lunacy at this years Summernats.
The SRT Hellcat might just look like another “Murican” muscle car but under the bonnet of this his beast lurks a 707 horse power Supercharged HEMI. This 4 door sedan saloon is not only fast, it’s proved to be very liable and practical too. If you’re in the market for a muscle car – the Charger might me the car for you however if you’re after something with some off-road pedigree then maybe opt for the Dodge Ram.
Here’s the specs of this amazing car:
Engine: Super Charged 707-HP 6.2L HEMI – 650-lb-ft Torque
Performance :0 – 60MPH: 4.2 Seconds – Top Speed: 204MPH

Santa Pod Raceway played host to the 2015 Gymkhana GRiD: European Gauntlet finals last month with the world’s greatest gymkhana drivers all battling for the podium.
The two day event saw its fair share of action including Ken making some minor body work adjustments to his Hoonicorn after a minor error saw him clip a crash barrier or two.
Even though Ken failed to make to secure a win, he sure put on a show in his mighty Hoonicorn. He said, “It was an incredibly fun weekend and I loved watching the guys battle it out. Trying to get the massive Hoonicorn around the course was a real challenge today and it’s the first time I’ve properly raced it. Dmitrij had an amazing drive in our one-on-one, so well done to him! Thanks to Monster for organising such a great event and to all the fans who came to see us. I can’t wait to see how we top this next year!”
Check out some of the highlights from Sundays action
In February 2014 the Hennessy Venom GT took to the Kennedy Space Center’s 3.22-mile (5.18 km) shuttle landing strip in Florida. The Hennessey team recorded a top speed of 270.49 mph (435.31 km/h). Unfortunately for Hennessy, they only completed the run in a single direction and had only sold (to qualify Hennessey must build 30). This meant that even though flat out it trumped the Bugatti Veyron’s 254.04 mph it did not qualify for the record.
Despite the controversy, the very fact that a production car exceeded 270 mph is an amazing achievement. If only they had met the conditions set by the Guinness Book of Records.
Take a look at the video below of the Hennessy Venom GT in action.
We’re certainly not usually a huge fans of either Japanese verts or green paint jobs but this stanced S2000 gets us a little moist. Further proof that sometimes, all you need a nice set of wheels, a touch of camber and a some coilovers. Enjoy the VTEC y0!
We’re not sure if Ken Block knows how to drive in a straight line, sure it makes for some crazy videos but its not very often we see him piloting something with any less than 500BHP at the wheels… until now.
This latest video starring the internet’s favorite hoonigan see’s Ken piloting the new Ford Focus RS, in all its more-door glory.
Rumor has it that the all new RS will be powered by 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine (as seen in the new Ford Mustang) mated to an all new 4WD system. It’s suggested that the new RS will produce over 330BHP to all four wheels, up from the 300 BHP produced by the MK2 RS 2.5-litre in-line five .
The official announcement will drop on February 3, 2015 so stay tuned to what should be the most lary Focus RS yet.
The mighty Honda NSX is one of those holy grail cars that tends not be to be changed from it’s original form. This example however has us at Turbo-Nutters torn between its stanced and original flavor. The body kit might be a little too much for some purists but theres no denying that even with some add-ons it’s still one of the best cars to roll out of Japan for a very long time.
In looking at the photos on his Facebook page—some of them aren’t safe for work, just a heads-up—it’s easy to figure out what millionaire playboy Dan Bilzerian enjoys outside of making bank as a poker player. The guy clearly loves all the things you’d associate with a rich dude living a lavish lifestyle: women, guns, private jets, working out, and, most importantly, his car collection.
Earlier this year, Complex point out the fact that Bilzerian has the kind of collection that would make most rappers jealous—and they were right. In scrolling through that list, which was derived from his social media accounts, you can find him chilling near his tricked-out trucks and jeeps, a number of supercars (including one beautiful black Ferrari 458), and a few classic/antique rides as well like his Cobra Shelby. Basically, he has many of the luxury cars that we tend to write about here at Turbo Nutters.
Ken Block’s Gymkhana has returned for it’s 7th and most epic instalment yet. This time Mr Block pilots his custom 1965 Ford Mustang, capable of laying a staggering 845bhp through all four corners.
In this video he takes to the streets of LA, strutting his tyre shredding stuff and laying down some serious rubber.
In a statement from the man him self he said, “The access to locations for this project was incredible, Obviously the film commission in Los Angeles is quite good and accustomed to working with projects that involve driving all the time. However this was the first and only time that anyone has done actual live-action driving and filming at the top of the Hollywood sign. Some of the permissions we had to obtain from the Department of Homeland Security were intense!”
We think you’ll agree that this is the most cinematic Gymkhana we’ve seen yet. We’ll shut the hell up now and let you watch the video.
Let us know what you think in the comments! Enjoy!
