George Shinn Collection: 46 Classic, Collector Cars With No Reserve

George Shinn Collection: 46 Classic, Collector Cars With No Reserve GAA Classic Cars will be hosting this collection as part of a three-day auction event in November. George Shinn amassed some solid talent when he formed the Charlotte Hornets in 1988 and later moved the team  to New Orleans in 2002, but his collection of cars might be even more impressive than his basketball teams. We've already featured several of his cars that will be sold at no reserve during the GAA Classic Cars auction in November, but here's the full list of all 46 classic and collectible cars from the George Shinn Collection that will be up for grabs on Saturday November 9.

The NSX doesn't lose all of these races against the Demon.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon carries forward the classic muscle car recipe of putting a massive engine in a mid-sized coupe, and it uses the prodigious power to accelerate through the quarter mile quicker than just about anything on the road. Conversely, the Acura NSX typifies the modern method of creating a supercar by combining a twin-turbo V6 and three electric motors, in addition to lots of electronics to make the complicated setup work. Now, DragTimes takes these two very different machine to an abandoned runway in the desert to see how they perform.

  Speedkore roaring into SEMA with twin-turbo AWD Charger Hellcat Widebody More than 1,000 horsepower and a trick exhaust will make much noise post.metadata.leadImageDesc Speedkore Performance is nowhere near finished with the Dodge Charger. At last year's SEMA show, the Wisconsin-based tuner showed a 1970 Charger Evolution with carbon and aluminum body panels, and a 996-horsepower Hellcat engine yoked to a six-speed transmission. This year the company teased a profile rendering of a 2020 Charger Hellcat Widebody on Facebook with the line, "All we're going to say is this all-wheel drive, twin-turbo, widebody Charger is going to be unveiled at the Magnaflow booth.

In the first run, the Demon jumps the start and has some fun by doing a smokey burnout done the strip. The NSX completes the quarter mile, though, and covers the distance in 11.1 seconds at 125.6 miles per hour.

In ideal conditions, the Demon can run the quarter in the nine-second range, so you might expect it to wipe the floor with the NSX in these races. However, that's not the case. Even with the Nitto drag radial tires, it can be hard for the Demon to put down the powerplant's ample power. In the races from a standing start, the Acura actually wins against the more powerful Dodge.

The NSX and Challenger also engage in three races from a roll, and these runs let the Dodge show off its acceleration ability. The Acura admirably tries to keep up, but with traction less of a concern, the sports car can't win against the muscle machine.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 Is for Living Life a Quarter-Mile at a Time

  The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 Is for Living Life a Quarter-Mile at a Time With drag-strip gear borrowed from the Demon, the more affordable 1320 is a straight-line thrill.If you’ve made it this far you probably know, but just in case, the 1320 Drag package is named for the length of a quarter-mile in feet. Like the limited-edition Demon, this is a Challenger set up for the drag strip. But the Demon has been discontinued for 2019, so the 1320 is now the factory-prepped dragster in the Challenger lineup, which is why Dodge let us rip on the 1320 at the drag strip at the Auto Club Speedway in Pomona, California.

This is a 2017 NSX in this video, meaning that it doesn't have the upgrades for the 2019 model year. However, these pieces wouldn't help the coupe go much quicker in the quarter mile. The improvements include new Continental SportContact 6 tires that allegedly shed two seconds a lap off a run around the Suzuka Circuit. In addition, the suspension is 26-percent stiffer in front and 19-percent stiffer at the back. The standard equipment also now includes four-way power adjustable seats, satellite navigation, aluminum pedals, and front and rear proximity sensors.
