This is the Goblin made by DF Kit Car out of Texas. It's an open-wheel exoskeleton type car in the spirit of the Ariel Atom, but at a significantly cheaper point of entry. It features the turbocharged powertrain of a 2009-era Chevrolet Cobalt SS with 260 horsepower, and a curb weight of just 1,550 pounds wet. The truly appealing portion is the price: you could build this kit yourself for as little as $13,000, or fully assembled turnkey vehicles start at just $24,000 for the N/A version or $32,000 for the turbocharged version, roughly half the cost of an Ariel Atom.

The Ringbrothers' are maintaining their positions as the kings of SEMA with this year's project, the 1,000 HP, supercharged 416 cubic inch "G-Code" 1969 Camaro. It's got a full suspension setup from Detroit Speed, an interior featuring incredible detail work, and one-off, IROC-inspired wheels. Oh, and did I say it's fast? It's insanely fast.

Everyone talks about the BMW 335i as a good tuner platform, but what if you don't go to track days, but rather, drive to the mountains to go snowboarding? A boosted, AWD, BMW wagon may be the answer!

This is the first and only time I've ever driven a stock Honda S2000. This 'AP2' Or second-generation model features very low miles, 237 HP naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine, making 160 lb/ft of torque, and a very rare blue color that shines like diamonds in the sun.
I've been saying this since way back in 2009 when we first drove the BMW 335i: This is the new Supra. And in the era of Runway Racing, (and Supra's being too valuable to turn into race cars), the 335i is one of the more common sights putting up strong numbers on the airstrip. This particular car makes 830 WHP at full boost settings, thanks to a single, top-mount turbocharger and a fire cannon of a fuel system, running consistent high-160 MPH passes in the standing half mile. It's not meant for canyons, and in fact its owner has never even been in the canyons, but we NEED to feel what that kind of violent acceleration is like.
