What We’ve Been Watching

A new week of Speedhunting is about to kick off, but before that happens it’s time to take a quick look at some of the videos we’ve been watching over the past seven days.

And first up it’s a new clip from Hoonigan…

Pointing an 11,000hp beast down the quarter mile in 3.6 seconds is just another day at the office for Top Fuel dragster driver Leah Pritchett, and in this POV-style clip you get a taste of what it takes to make a mind-numbingly quick pass like this possible. Look out for cameo appearances from our own Larry Chen and Louis Yio.

If there’s one way to get tongues wagging about a new supercar, it’s to release a in-car video of the machine lapping the famed Nürburgring Nordschleife in a record time. And that’s exactly what Lamborghini has done with this clip of its forthcoming Huracán Performante, which reputedly destroyed ‘The Green Hell’ production car lap record with a 6:52.01 back in October last year. Since the video surfaced this week there has been a lot of speculation about its accuracy, which perhaps has a lot to do with just how unbelievably quick it is, but we’ll let you be the judge…

Back in early February, the fifth Euro Tripper event went down at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, Florida. As always, there was no shortage of exceptional euro builds at the two-day event, and this video from I Love Bass does a good job of capturing the essence of ET5.

Finally this week, it’s a new clip from Petrolicious, the subject if which is a 2005 Ford GT owned by none other than the model’s lead designer. This is the sixth GT that Camilo Pardo has owned since ’05, and we’re sure you’ll agree it looks absolutely spectacular in its custom livery.

That’s all for now, but as always, if you’ve watched a cool automotive-related video this week, don’t forget to share it with us in the comments section below.

Great bunch of vids. I've been hooked on thjs all of a sudden, the overtake from 11:11 onwards and the sparring between the two constantly... wow https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWjjPKbVkGQ&t=727s

misha charoudin has done quite an extensive video comparison of the lamborghini and 918 laps, it is interesting, I remember the uproar behind the pagani lap time being fake too

U.S. Top Fuel racers only run 1000ft since the accidents a few years ago (not the whole 1320ft).
Even still that's hauling, a reputable race engineer has calculated that this run on the full quarter mile would have been around the 4.3 seconds, which will smash any standing record.
