Heffner Ford GT Shatters Standing Mile Record [video]

Well, now one guy has cause to point and laugh at all those idiots who plunked down $1.6 million for their Bugatti Veyron’s. The Hoffman Motorsports / Heffner Performance that just this year set a 252 mph standing mile record at the Texas Mile has done it again. At the, Exotics Rally Miami One Mile, this past weekend, they cranked up the boost from a pedestrian 26 psi in Texas to an unbelievable 41 psi, bringing the total output of this particular Ford to 1,900hp, and propelling the Yellow GT to a new standing mile record at 266.93 mph, and officially sealing the deal for me that the Ford GT is truly the ultimate tuner car.

Video after the jump.

Breaking: Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T R-Spec is Built for Tuners

Hyundai is introducing the R-Spec version of its Genesis Coupe 2.0T at the SEMA Show, Nov. 3-6 in Las Vegas.

The tuner-friendly version of the Genesis Coupe 2.0T will be the first production R-Spec model to arrive in the U.S.

Priced at $23,750, the R-Spec features the same core performance equipment as the 2.0T Track model but with non-essential equipment removed to reduce cost and weight. The result is what Hyundai calls a “perfect black canvas for tuners”.

The R-Spec has the same tuned suspension, 19-inch gunmetal finish alloy wheels, performance Summer tires, Brembo brakes, Torsen limited-slip differential, all core equipment on the Track model. The R-Spec also receives a set of front strut camber adjustment bolts and R-Spec badging.

Gone are non-essentials such as Bluetooth connectivity, automatic headlights, cruise control, trip computer, chrome interior accents and steering wheel audio controls. The result is a $3,000 savings from the 2.0T Track model. The R-Spec will only be available with manual transmission.

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T R-Spec will be available in three colors, Karussell White, Bathurst Black and Tsukuba Red.
