Underground Racing R8 (Nitto Tire Booth)
UR showed up in force at this years SEMA show. This TT R8 is their latest trip down the rabbit hole of insane speed and horsepower numbers. Tipping well past the 1000hp mark and easily achieving 200mph+ while maintaining an exceptional level of engineering in their new kit.

Underground Racing Aventador (HRE Wheels Booth)
Showcasing a set of HRE’s new S1 Wheels in a candy teal finish this unsuspecting super car is actually packing Underground Racing’s new twin-turbo kit. Producing 1000hp on pump gas and 1200hp on race gas. What we soon found out about this car besides the newest wheels and UR Twin-Turbo kit, it was owned by the same person with the R8 TT. He decided to bring four of his UR cars, these two were the latest editions to his collection.

VWVortex AWD Super Beetle (H&R Springs Booth)
Using tuner know how and a public forum to fuel fan fare behind this build, the VWVortex crew got the bright idea of mating a Golf R drive train with an insane 500hp turbo beetle motor. Also fitting a set of one-off 18” Fifteen52 Formula over the UK Golf R spec racing brakes. Every time we walked by the car all we could think about was what it would be like to drive the damn thing.

Rado/Hawk BMW 135i (Hawk Booth)
This unsuspecting 135i was packing more of a punch than we expected. Rado (yes Chris Rado) is stepping up his tuning game with a leap into the euro-tuning world. They decided to install a turbonetic single turbo conversation with a cobb tune and spearco intercooler. Giving this micro Bimmer more get up and go than a 1M off the lot, a whopping 478hp at the wheels.

IND Distribution BMW F10 M5 (Falken Tires Booth)
Nestled nicely on KW Clubsport3 suspension and battleship grey BBS wheels, this caged F10 M5 is due for a major overhaul. Currently the car is sporting new intercoolers, a flash, exhaust system, intake and pushing well into the high 11s quarter-mile. The concept for this car was centered around what a F10 M5 Challenge car would look and perform like. We hear phase two for the car involved an engine overhaul to reach the 1000hp mark.
