    Spotted in the wild, a 2015 BMW I8. Built to compete with the likes of the Fisker Karma, Tesla Model S, Audi R8 e-tron, and Mercedes-Benz AMG SLS E-cell. The car is built with a carbon fiber passenger compartment on top of the chassis and powertrain. A plug-in hybrid with a turbocharged 3 cyclinder engine and electric motor combo with a combined 360hp supposedly gives it M3 like power and handling. A 155mph top speed with Prius like efficiency. Hopefully its owners will drive better than Prius owners do!

    The Best Porsche 911 Chase scene out of the 80s from the movie “No Man’s Land”. Charlie Sheen even gives a 911 Cabrio a pat on the top before cutting her top open trying to steal her before the awesome chase!

    ASC’s 1970 Pontiac Firebird  ’Dark Energy’

    ASC is responsible for this progressive build along with a few other famous pro-touring builds including Pro Skateboarder Josh Kalis DC Shoes 1969 Camaro. While Pro-touring builds seem to be more of a “who has more money” contest commonly, we dig this build. It keeps just enough enough of the Firebirds original character and brings it into this era with modern components throughout. The definition of pro-touring. The 1,020 hp at 5,900 rpm at 12.5 psi helps our opinion of it as well. Seeing muscle cars with LSX powerplants is so commonplace its almost the defacto these days for guys building a muscle car. We dig the fact that all this horsepower is drawn from an original 455 Pontiac Block.

    Induction: custom billet Visner intake manifold, dual 4-inch throttle-bodies, twin 66mm Bullseye turbochargers, custom air-to-air intercooler, Tial 44mm wastegates and blow-off valves

    Fuel system: Rick’s Hot Rod Shop tank; Aeromotive Eliminator pump and regulator; FAST XFI stand-alone computer and twin injectors per cylinder

    Ignition: MSD 6AL box, Mallory distributor
