Have you ever been airstrip racing? It's an incredible amount of fun for the first few runs. Speed is an addiction, and you soon find yourself wanting to go faster. When you've got four-figure horsepower on tap, things can get pretty wild very quickly, but as modern cars continue to get even better, it's not as difficult as it once was to find extra speed. When speed is simply an extrapolation from how much extra cash you have, how fast would you like to spend? If you have enough, you can buy 1400 horsepower units worth of big turbos, big intercoolers, big injectors, and big Hoosier tires.

Why Does Horsepower Matter?

  Why Does Horsepower Matter? Horsepower is a standard measurement, whether you’re talking about a car or a shop vac, and the term is so commonplace that it’s easy to forget it has pre-vehicular origins. Watt’s horsepower formula is confusing, but there’s no need to understand it in order to understand why horsepower ratings affect cars. The reason car engines are measured in horsepower is because engines were invented, in part, to do the work that horses used to do, not because we need to know how much coal a car can move over a certain period of time.

During the Motor Sportive Day event in France, I have filmed this rather insane Porsche 911 997 Turbo tuned by the famous German tuning company 9 ff . Believe it or not but this beast is able to produce a whopping 1400 HP and 1200NM of torque!!

With wide sticky Indiana special reserve racin' tires on the back of this beast, it's unlikely that they'll be searching too long for traction, and in something with this much power, traction is key to a good run. Even when the event is the 'Rolling50 Deutsche Meisterschaft' in Lahr, Germany. These guys all make their top-speed runs from a 50 kilometer per hour rolling start. I've been pretty vocal about rolling starts in the past, but when you have this much power on tap, it's much more likely to last through the season if you're not 'dig racing' and snapping axles every week.
