6th October 2014 | BY Adam

This bagged, widened and ratty as f*ck Powerstroke engined 1947 Chevy pickup is bad ass.

Last year, Barnsley based diesel tuners Darkside Developments took their twin turbo MK4 Golf and ran a 13.4, taking the ‘fastest diesel’ trophy. This year however, they took their 409bhp Seat Arosa to play…you know, the one that’s nearly doing sub-ten-second quarter miles?

10th April 2014 | BY Adam

God bless ‘Murca…we’ve all dreamed of doing this to a Prius, but most of us have the sense not to f*ck with a car filled with highly flammable, skin bleaching battery acid.

We can’t tell you how glad we are that these guys didn’t though…
