Supercharged, high-mileage BMW M5 E39 sounds epic and goes like stink

Some of us are longing for the good ol’ days of naturally aspirated engines while others just want the extra power provided by forced induction. Case in point, this BMW M5 from the E39 era is hiding a secret under its bulging hood with quad air vents to cool down the engine. It still has the 4.9-liter V8, but now with a supercharger from Evolve Automotive.

1930s Cruiser Boasts Supercharged Performance And Style

This incredible 1935 Auburn Eight Supercharged Cabriolet is a sight to behold both under the hood and out of it. The 1930s were an excellent time for American automobile manufacturers across the nation as the market was primed for some big moves, despite the recent economic collapse, in the automotive world. That means that everything from styling to engine options was quickly improved with every model, which makes every car a piece of automotive history. While these cars certainly cannot compete with the newer performance vehicles of more recent times, they help to show you exactly how the insane supercharged eight-cylinder vehicles got to where they are today. These cars are a road map for the high-performance muscle and sports cars of today and that we all know and love.

Half Made Out of Wood, This 1948 Ford Packs a 560-HP Supercharged V8 Under the Hood

Today, wood is only used on expensive cars to accentuate the lavishness of their cabins but more than a century ago, the material was used to craft wheels, chassis reinforcements, and exterior body panels. The industry quickly switched to metal but some of these vehicles were subsequently modified by independent coachbuilders or local carpenters who used hardwood to enlarge their original passenger compartments.

Ford Blatantly Copies Tesla Supercharger Stations

US automakers are waking up to the idea that the future is electric, and are making great headway in electrifying their product offerings. Ford, which already offers the Mustang Mach-E, is getting ready for more EV models such as the Ford F-150 Lightning, and with that comes the responsibility of providing, and maintaining a charging network. EV leader Tesla has managed to deliver a successful charging network with its Supercharger stations boasting an iconic hollowed-out design, and now it seems like Ford is following suit with a very similar design, but completely different approach.

BOOST DISTRICT C8 CLAIMS AROUND 700 HP WITH SUPERCHARGED CORVETTE PACKAGE

We are in the middle of a new campaign in the C8 Corvette horsepower war. Even though absolutely no one has found a way to officially tune the encrypted ECU controlling the latest version of the Corvette, we have now seen several high-profile builders bring big power builds forward, all while playing nice with the factory ECU. The latest is the Californian crew from Boost District who brought their supercharged C8 Corvette out to the 2021 SEMA Show. Boost District claims their Corvette is the first supercharged C8 employing a positive displacement blower. A claim that could probably be disputed.
