street rod
auto muy veloz para circular en las calles


Explanation:
La respuesta es larga pero en mis diccionarios sólo encuentro: Coche arreglado o TRUCADO!!! (ugghhh)

This term refers to HOT RODS, which are cars that have been either built or modified for increased speed and acceleration. Some of them are built so they can be used for cirulation in the streets and therefore are called "Street (hot) rods.

I do not know if I would say that Hot rods are Formula 1 material but maybe you could call them that by extension. Hot rods have their own competitions.

Here is a quote of the Encylopedia Britannica:

"(A Hot Rod is a) privately designed and built automobile constructed along individualistic lines to provide maximum starting acceleration; it is most popular in the United States. Hot-rod competition is largely confined to acceleration contests (see drag racing), but hot rods may also compete in various classes against time or distance in speed and endurance attempts.

There is even a magazine that specializes in Street rods. See the link below:

street rod
bólido "street rod" (bólido utilizado en carretera)


Explanation:
Street Rod: hot rod solamente utilizado en carretera.

Street Rod: Técnicamente, es un auto pre-’49, con el típico motor grande y refrigerado, gruñido fuerte. La marca y modelo no son tan importantes, aunque esos viejos hot-rods deuce coupes suficientemente modernizados son consideradosla crema y nata de este terreno. ¿Recuerdan el flamante
deuce coupe de Martin Sheen de la pelicula "The California Kid"? Los street rodders provincianos y customizadores tienen la costumbre de tratarse y considerarse uno al otro en como si fueran perros y gatos; los customizadores, consideran a los street rodders como remilgosos y snob’s, sin sentido del estilo de la verdad y en efecto, muchos street-rods se ven como si hubieran salido del mismo molde, y verdaderamente muchos lo son. Considerando la duración del viejo hierro y del hecho de que este se oxida, muchos de los street rod’s de hoy están hechos con fibra de vidrio.

El resto de las décadas no merece nuestra atención.Los 70 aportaron los Resto-Rods, clásicos aparentemente de serie, pero modificados mecánicamente.Tambien a partir de esa época se generaliza el termino Street Rod para designar a los rods comodos, bonitos, seguros etc. Se acuña este término porque el de Hot Rod tenía para mucha gente connotaciones negativas como carreras callejeras, peleas, ruido, coches “sucios”y raros, etc.
