The latest issue of NZ Performance Car has hit shelves in a store near you. Check out this sneak peek into what to expect from the pages of Issue No. 237

Alex’s SR coupe

From a bogged-up shell to a pristine show-spec racer, Alex MacAskill’s SR Coupe may have been one hell of a hangover, but four years of hard work has transformed it into a show-winning race machine, ready to tackle South Island circuit and hill-climb events. Here is a little teaser from the car’s first public outing — in an unfinished state — in 2015.

The 100th running of Pikes

The second-oldest race event in the US, Pikes Peak is unique in its location and the challenges it brings, as vehicles contest 156 corners while climbing to 4300 metres above sea level. We sent along the best damn mountain goat we know, Larry Chen, to capture all the action, set to a breathtaking backdrop of the Rocky Mountains. Want to see just how hair-raising it is from the driver’s seat? Take a record-setting ride with Rhys Millen.  

Reg Cook’s streamliner

Deep in the South Auckland countryside, possibly the most ambitious-yet-ingenious project we have seen in recent years has just been completed. In this issue we take a very in-depth look at the FWD that Reg hopes will exceed 220mph at this year’s Bonneville Speed Week. Check out our video of the start-up. I bet you will be surprised by the power plant choice.

Water injection explained

We chat to Richard Green of Green Brothers Racing about how water injection works, why it’s so good, and we also show you how to install a kit like the one used in New Zealand’s fastest import.
