Super Street magazine will be running the US leg of the rally, which starts in Miami, stops in Atlanta and finishes in New York. The rest of the competitors will continue across the Atlantic to Edinburgh, London, Paris, Barcelona and Ibiza. Editor-in-Chief Sam Du along with The ID Agency’s Jasper Watts will be driving a highly-modified 2014 Lexus IS. Scheduled to be published on the cover of the August issue of Super Street, the Lexus race car debuted at SEMA 2013 as the wildest third-generation IS modified to date. Under the hood is turbocharged 2JZ-GTE engine swap, a powertrain most commonly found in the Toyota Supra. The engine has been built to withstand extreme power using a 3.4-liter Brian Crower stroker kit, upgraded valvetrain and Garrett turbo. The estimated power for this car is 800hp on race fuel.

Other scheduled drivers of Gumball 3000 include Deadmau5, Tinie Tempah, David Hasselhoff, Tony Hawk and Xzibit. The action starts June 4th in Miami. Follow @superstreet on Instagram and Superstreetmag on Facebook to see live updates of the rally.
