Unveiled at SEMA 2014 is the racy new Mustang RTR. The RTR is a concept designed by Pro Drifter Vaughn Grittin, Jr. for the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang. “Ford has really done an amazing job with the new 2015 Ford Mustang,” Gittin Jr. said at the RTR’s reveal. “The all new platform has very easily allowed us to mesh RTR’s tastefully-aggressive styling and modified performance to offer our most capable, best-handling fun-to-drive RTR’s to date.” Fans can get the RTR package with any of the 2015 Mustangs engine options. However there are several different levels of Spec packages to choose from. So many Options. The Spec 1 package really just focuses on the appearance of the car while the Spec 2 package includes both the looks and the power upgrades.

So what gives the RTR such a racy look? The [...]

By Nicole James
Yesterday freedom rang from sea to shining sea. Fireworks, barbecue  and the star spangled banner where on everyone’s minds as we celebrated the declaration of our independence over 200 years ago. For years, cars have been a symbol of American innovation, power, and freedom. Here is Car Street Journal’s list of the top ten most iconic American cars in American history.

Trending: Cops using Super Cars

By Matthew Harris

The Huracan, Lamborghini’s successor to its top selling Gallardo, was revealed in March 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show. Who would’ve guessed it would end up helping fight crime, but that’s exactly what happened when Lamborghini decided to donate the Huracan to Italy’s state police. In fact, the new super car is replacing two of its predecessors that were also donated to Italy’s police force in 2004 and 2008.

The donation is to further improve the relationship that Lamborghini has with the Italian police. “We have a strong and fitting relationship with the Italian State Police. The new Lamborghini Huracan stands for Italian super sports car excellence and we are proud to provide it to the Italian State Police to carry out the specialist tasks these police cars undertake,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President [...]

Exactly 50 years ago today, the production Mustang was shown to the public for the first time inside the Ford Pavilion at the New York World’s Fair on April 17, 1964.

Initially offered as either a coupe or convertible, the Mustang’s unibody structure was laid over a 108-inch wheelbase and stretched out 181.6 inches from bumper to bumper. Its cockpit was pushed further back on the chassis, resulting in a longer hood and shorter rear deck design. It’s with those proportions, and detailed with such iconic touches as the running horse in the grille, the side scallops along the flanks and the taillights divided into three sections, that the Mustang became a car people were instantly passionate about.

Fifty years later, the Martoccia Family has been selected as our April Ride of the Month to [...]

Formula Drift Long Beach 2014

Photos and Words By Paco Ibarra

Long Beach marks the beginning of another season for Formula Drift, with over 10 years under their belt and more drivers running higher horsepower vehicles, this season promises to be faster and more exciting than ever before.

One of the biggest changes that was made for this 2014 season is the qualifying format which now requires every driver to run twice as opposed to last year where the top 16 qualifying drivers would only be required to run once. Additionally, the judging criteria was adjusted to allow for less ‘zeroes’ in the event of ‘corrections and straightening’ which now only cause point deductions. One of the most criticized changes this season was the removal of the consolation battle for 3rd place which is now decided by points.

This year also surprised fans because of [...]
