HorsepowerFreaks Goes Global with Massive Magazine Exposure

HorsepowerFreaks is defying preconceived notions that high horsepower cars are difficult to drive, obnoxiously loud and only driven on race gas. They have kept one vital ingredient of gravity defying speeds; looks to die for. And it is thanks to cars like this that ensure I never get bored of this game!"... BMW Performance Magazine (March 2009). "Knowledge is Recession Proof".... "We know what the Bugatti Veyron is capable of with it's capabilities clearly published on Wikipedia, so I believe we now have the power and the traction to come very close if not beat it in several categories."... Heavy Hitters Magazine (Mar-April 2009). "Those that continue to innovate and spend money through these challenging times are coming out on top."... "HPF produces the highest horsepower around and they aren't about to give their competition any hints on how they did it. The competition will just have to spend time and money reverse engineering if they want to decode the mystery of 1100 usable ponies."... Performance Auto & Sound Magazine (February 2009).



HorsepowerFreaks has grabbed worldwide attention receiving the covers of magazines in Russia, Ireland, Hungary, France, the Middle East, UK, Canada and the United States. Their explosive growth during these tough economic times shows that hard work can and often will pay off for those that are diligent, don't take no for an answer, and continue to set the high bar for others to follow.

Actually, I'm kinda pissed at Bimmer magazine for their article. They kept on saying "claimed horsepower" and stuff like that to indicate that they were skeptical on HPF's numbers.

They said they didn't have a dyno to confirm the claimed numbers on. Well, if that's an issue WHY THE F DIDN'T THEY LINE UP A DYNO FOR THE DAY??

I didn't see similar wording in the last Dinan review I read in Bimmer. Did they dyno Dinan's cars?

why cant i find any good videos of them on youtube though. especially the widebody car. maybe my search skills just arent up to par, do these guys have any promotional videos, or at least something other than the cell phone crap or a 5 min video of a car idling and backing out of a garage im finding on youtube. I wanna see these guys in action!

Chris has stated that they are working on a new rear end to put the power down with no issues as well as a few other things. About 2-3 weeks ago he also stated in a month or so he would have true videos of the car done. I am sure they will be coming soon!

Congrats on HPF for stomping on AA. Their turbo kit is a masterpiece. It's just a shame their wide-body kit is so tasteless and ugly
