To be top-of-the-food-chain in with this kind of company (BL 1200+ awhp Nissan GTR, Mullet’s Hennessey Ford GT (Twin Turbo, Supercharged, with Nitrous), and the LMR Turbo + Nitrous Camaro) is definitely something to brag about. This footage from TX2K12 puts it all into perspective. Seriously, it’s not even close. WoW. Underground Racing definitely knows how to build monster eating monsters!!!

Cars on Fifth 2012

Words: Rob | Photos: Ruckus

If there was one word to describe Cars on Fifth this year, it would be perfect. Located on the exclusive 5th street in Naples, Florida, Cars On 5th consists of blocks worth of Exotic and Classic cars flanked with the best shopping and restaurants that Naples has to offer. This luxury atmosphere keeps us coming back year after year. The reason why I say this year was perfect was a great combination of cool seventy degree weather, a great crowd, and the best cars to date.

Much like the variety of restaurants on 5th street, the diversity of cars at Cars On Fifth is quite special. There are very few shows where you see a classic truck slammed on bags across from a Shelby GT500 which is parked next to a Gulf blue Mercedes SLS AMG; While for the most part, cars are grouped by make and model, juxtapositions like that remind you if you like cars, you can appreciate them all. That ideal is seen throughout Cars on Fifth, everyone appreciates everything. Look in any direction and you’ll see a Ferrari guy talking to a Ford guy about his Mustang, or a crowd of Porsche enthusiasts admiring a slammed Rat Rod. Simply put, there is no hate.

So what stood out to me? Well, the first car that made me go “wow” was a gulf blue SLS AMG. There wasn’t a whole lot special about it, except that beautiful powder blue and that’s enough for me. My other best in show was the two-tone Ferrari 458 Italia. The black accents on this hot new Ferrari took it to the next level, and a great example of subtlety going a long way. This was why in a row of six 458’s it was the one that everyone was talking about.

I could go on and on about the beauty of dozens of the cars there, but I’m sure you would rather just look at the pictures. With something for everyone from food to shopping to all types of cars, Cars On Fifth keeps getting better and better with each passing year. Their only problem will be topping the perfection of this year’s show!

Five Fast Trailer

It’s here, the third trailer for the upcoming Five Fast movie. I can’t wait to see this next and supposedly final movie.  Although, there saying it’s the last one something tells me if it does well enough at the box office, we’ll see Vin Diesel and Paul Walker come back for a sixth. A few new things were shown in this trailer including the signature bikini clad girls at crazy midnight street race parties. Just in case you thought they forgot. Also some of new the high profile cars include a LFA and Ford GT. With only 50 days until the movie comes out on April 29th this new Five Fast trailer has got me genuinely excited.

Lamborghini LP560-4 vs Ford GT500

Well, not only does the Bull have the looks to kill, it also has the muscle. With all due respect, from a price point perspective, the Ford GT500 does win hands down… (MSRP: $46,725 US) The Lambo on the other hand, “if you have to ask, then you probably can’t afford it”.

EuroSunday Event – East Coast

EuroSunday Event

EuroSunday is an event that was started by Sacramento Ferrari owners out in California. Well, now there is an East Coast event and it happens every 4th Sunday of the month. I found out about the event through a post on Audizine.com calling for all types of European vehicles.

This past Sunday was a gorgeous day and was the perfect setting for photography and exotic cars. The diverseness of the types of vehicles parked in a closed off section of the parking lot in a strip mall in Hallandale was just short of amazing. From the white Porsche GT3 with black rims to the battleship grey Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 competing for admiration, there was an enthusiasm in the air similar to that of a child in a candy store. I grabbed my camera and fired off a few shots. In the background, you could hear an exasperated mother just finishing her shopping calling her son to get down to the mall right away to see the exotic car show happening in the parking lot.

Some of the noteworthy vehicles there were a first year supercharged red Acura NSX looking like it just rolled off the dealer lot, the silver Ford GT and a black on black B7 Audi RS4. I was there for only a short time, and being the 1st EuroSunday event on the east coast, it was a rather good turnout. I’m excited for next month.
