Chevy is For Real Planning a Mid-Engined 2017 Corvette Zora ZR1(Sep 11, 2014)I would classify it as a C7.5 than a C8..they'd reserve the "C8" moniker for base model Mid-Rear setups through the normal cycle. I can see the "Zora" having stingray features and when the official C8 rolls out, it has an entirely different look.
Dodge Charger Hellcat Eats up the Track(Aug 15, 2014)from what I understand the chally hellcat has a 7.03 spread..4.71/1 in first and the high gear is .67/1 and that's out of the TorqueFlight 8 tranny..I imagine it will run the same in the Charger
SSC Tuatara Production May Finally Get Underway(Jun 17, 2014)No other place to put the mirrors..think about it..they have to actually be able to use them..but if they are lower, at speed, air will travel over the mirror and not into the intakes
Nissan Reveals its Future: Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo(Jun 17, 2014)Two teams of designers and they come up with a retarded looking car..and that goes for a lot of car companies..if it's not gonna ever make production, they draw up some Frankenstein..some bits and pieces look good but as a whole..thumbs down for me.
John Hennessey Discusses His Masterpiece: The Venom GT(Jun 02, 2014)So simple and yet would utterly stroke a veyron with ease. It has everything you need. Again, the veyron has a leather wrapped dash..go ahead and keep your "luxury" a Chrysler 300 has more luxury! watch out for that new W24 9000lb monster beetle
Why is this Maniac Throwing Rocks at an Aventador?(May 30, 2014)Notice how he didn't get his punk ass out the car after he hit it with the rock..which I would have done the minute he threatened with a rock..just because you have a car like that and the road was empty, it's not an open invite to power down it
Why is this Maniac Throwing Rocks at an Aventador?(May 30, 2014)I've have to agree with the statement about Beiber...everyone wanted his head after he pulled the same stunt and Keyshawn Johnson ran him down. If it's an ongoing issue, it obviously pushed this dude to the edge, especially if he has kids...
Europeans Are Going Absolutely Nuts Over the New Mustang(May 29, 2014)To be able to walk in a dealership and buy one, makes it more accessible than probably paying double to import it in. A huge plus for Ford as it makes a bigger global presence and They'll get to see why the Mustang has been around for 50 years
Will the Viper Become a Dodge Again?(May 25, 2014)It is kinda said they went out and made SRT it's own brand..especially not having any other models in store..you can kiss that barracuda goodbye though..so what's next..are the bringing Ram back into Dodge?
Listen to the Koenigsegg One: 1 Fire Up and Smile(Apr 13, 2014)Hate to say it, but that idle sounded like shit..not impressed at all..I will say it probably sounds a hell of a lot meaner in mid range acceleration. But I can honestly say I've heard better
Trion SuperCars to Build 2000HP American Hypercar(Mar 30, 2014)The TransStar Dagger GT..300 mph top speed..yeah over the years their website got even more legit..actually adding specs and parts and more details. Who knows where it actually stands now
Hennessey Reveals 'World’s Fastest Edition' Venom GT(Mar 26, 2014)And someone mentioned earlier about the veyron needing 4 miles..try 5, the length of their straight..not to mention the 1 mile head start(curve) it so it was at 110 by the time it started its run
Hennessey Reveals 'World’s Fastest Edition' Venom GT(Mar 26, 2014)Production or not, Guinness certified or not..I saw a video that showed this car going faster than a veyron..to hell with a certificate..no street legal car is faster than this one..I wouldn't be so sure on the one:1 going any faster either...
Ferrari to MH370 Families: Go Grieve Somewhere Else(Mar 24, 2014)Most of the families have probably been there from out of country..so not only are they not getting answers but not the are being displaced by a bunch of Italian douche nozzles..bad form Ferrari, bad form
Ferrari to MH370 Families: Go Grieve Somewhere Else(Mar 24, 2014)The hotel has the right to do whatever they like with their rooms..if they paid or not, it could be refunded. It's the privileged attitude and sense of entitlement that's rearing it's ugly head here...
Koenigsegg One:1 Vs. A Beached Whale (the Veyron)(Mar 23, 2014)But that's neither here nor there cuz the proof is out there that the venom is faster..in my book..the P1 is the pinnacle of cars right now..and until the Laferrari gets put through the paces, that won't ever change.
Koenigsegg One:1 Vs. A Beached Whale (the Veyron)(Mar 23, 2014)It's vbox verified..only difference, it wasn't allowed to do a second run, and Guinness came out and said "hey, we decided a production has to be 30 made" just one over the venoms prod. Run..seems Guinness got a hefty donation..
Koenigsegg One:1 Vs. A Beached Whale (the Veyron)(Mar 23, 2014)To my knowledge, the koenigsegg has never been ran at that speed..it's estimated..until then it's a claim..the venom has beaten the top speed of the veyron with half of everything the veyron carries...
CGI Will Keep Paul Walker in Fast & Furious 7(Mar 23, 2014)They did do something similar with Arnold in Terminator Salvation..another bodybuilder and CGI'd his face..same for Chris Evans in the beginning of Captain American and Marlon Wayans in Little Man..
Cars Lottery Winners Should Buy(Mar 20, 2014)there is more I would chose over this..just cause of the center drive.it's a pain in the ass to get in and out of these types of cars, let alone one where you have to crawl over a seat to get in the drivers seat..a man of my stature doesn't need that
Maserati Confirms Alfieri Could Be Ready by 2016(Mar 08, 2014)they'll gladly push you towards a used one because they make no money off the new ones..they'll mark up the used ones and most people would be none the wiser because "hey, it's a Ferrari gimme gimme"...
Maserati Confirms Alfieri Could Be Ready by 2016(Mar 08, 2014)I should have tried to be more clear originally..now some of the special cars, Enzo, LaFerrari etc. have the more strict requirements..with Ferrari, it's all about your relationship with them if you want new...
Maserati Confirms Alfieri Could Be Ready by 2016(Mar 08, 2014)you can buy a used Ferrari anytime you want..I'm talking new..some dealerships require you buy a used one before new, a) because you will have to wait a couple years to get the new one and b) it builds loyalty, they don't want you to turn and flip it
Maserati Confirms Alfieri Could Be Ready by 2016(Mar 07, 2014)it's funny, a requirement to buying a new Ferrari is you have to have bought a Maserati..I would gladly do so if this was one of my choices. Good move Maserati! this definitely presents a "next-gen" look
Hennessey Venom GT Busts the Veyron SS's Balls (Again)(Feb 24, 2014)those that think the Veyron will come back and beat this is gravely mistaken..they have no reason to because they are looking to it's replacement..there is also no clear cut guidelines to what a production car is..
SRT Has No Plans to Make An Entry-Level Viper(Feb 05, 2014)anything SRT does will end up hurting the sales of the flagship Viper...whether it's offering a V8 in the Viper or building a brand new roadster to "compete" with the Vette..
Bugatti Confirms Second-Gen Veyron to Have More Power(Feb 05, 2014)the Venom and Agera would both walk the Veyron..a w16 w/ quad turbos is a waste of time, energy, and money..slap some leather on it and call it luxury and charge 2 million dollars..the former at the least proves it can be done better cheaper
Nissan GT-R Breaks $100,000 Barrier(Jan 22, 2014)you know why you see more Corvettes than GTRs...the demand is that high for them so they build that many of them..the GTR is a niche market..they know they don't sell as many so they jack up the price to make up the difference..
Top Ten Shelby Cars of All-Time(Jan 21, 2014)@brian umm no the last pic is a standard gt500..the SuperSnake is cosmetically different and some 100 to almost 200 hp more..
McLaren P1 Lapped Ring in 6:30 Says Insider(Jan 20, 2014)yes there is no official standard for lap times..but if you want to make the claim..it has to be from a VBOX..and to take the production car "title" it's stock from factory tires, no slicks (wet or dry). 6:30 is hellacious..6:40 is realistic
Top Ten Shelby Cars of All-Time(Jan 20, 2014)out of all the craptastic Dodge cars he had a part of..you choose the Daytona..the Durango would have been a better choice! and you leave out the Series 1, the Cobra Concept, the GR1 concept, the Daytona Coupe and the SuperSnake?! who wrote this?!
Chevy Says Corvette ZR1 Not Happening(Jan 14, 2014)they said the price is fairly close to the outgoing Z06..I'm guessing 75k for the 7 spd tranny and 80k for the 8 spd..doubt it top 90k
Leaked! 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06(Jan 11, 2014)if that's the Zo6, then what the hell is the ZR1 gonna look like?!? and if this is pushing around 620 hp..big brother has to be in the 700 range! I..must..change....
Leno Almost Crashed his Porsche Carrera GT(Jan 06, 2014)of course he almost wrecked it..200 mph on street tires on the banks of talladega..I watched it years ago when it aired and I was scared for him when it happened..it's like fishing for some kind of reason on how PW died...
Chrysler is Now Fully Italian Owned(Jan 02, 2014)all it really does is it gives Fiat a foot in America's door..all it will breed is cross platform tech..I wonder if they'll attempt more sports cars to now go with their sister automakers?
GM to Buy Tesla in 2014?(Dec 31, 2013)everything has a price! what would happen is they would keep Tesla as a brand..they would then be able to produce EV models of all sorts..sm sedans, large sedans, crossover, pick ups..it's a win for everyone
5 Cars Saying Goodbye After 2013(Dec 31, 2013)the avalanche is one that will be missed by me..it was more SUV than truck IMO..you could swim in the back seat and it rode like a SUV also. they were butt ugly until 2008.
Tuned Corvette Stingray Races Stock Viper and 12C(Dec 30, 2013)minimally tuned vette vs stock viper..viper took it because of it's mid range torque..now the 12c..that is a different breed, vette doesn't stand a chance, they had another vid of it walking the viper too
Old Dodge Vipers Aren't So Dangerous After All(Dec 16, 2013)it's bare bones and to the point! only and exactly what you need! ask any viper owner and they'll tell you exactly what they think of the interior..that they don't give a damn because they're in a viper and you're not!
Gallardo Successor is Called the Huracan?(Dec 13, 2013)only thing..I think it could use bigger wheels to eat up some of the wheel gap..if it is fact the same tranny from the Aventador..this thing is gonna be a beast!
Troller's Rides: Yoloswagbeast(Dec 10, 2013)really?! this is what you have to resort to?! feeding into trolls to make them feel special. when in fact they are worthless and pose no credible or intelligent conversation to the articles. WTG car buzz, allowing yourself to be trolled!
Is the Porsche 911 Turbo S a Supercar?(Dec 01, 2013)for me I categorize supercars and hypercars by their top speed..190-220 is supercar for me. I believe some cars can be split by trim also..example would be the C6 corvette..base form isn't a supercar but the ZR1 and Z06 were
Actor and Car Guy Paul Walker Killed(Dec 01, 2013)sucks to hear because he did most his own stunt driving and wasn't a person who craved for the limelight. you never heard tmz drama about him..feel sorry for his daughter!
Actor and Car Guy Paul Walker Killed(Dec 01, 2013)I'm wondering how much of Fast 7 was filmed..either way, look for a stunt scene where he drives off but ends up dying in the movie because what wasn't finished has to be re-written
1994 Dodge Viper Has Just 504 Miles(Nov 29, 2013)the only red one I found on eBay has 29k miles..where is this one from..because I actually have a pic of me sitting in one that has everything original including the tires..which were not dry rotted in anyway..don't remember the miles though
Nissan Reveals 591hp GT-R Nismo(Nov 19, 2013)The new SRT Viper ACR should beat this easily..it ran a 7:12, 3 years ago..lighter and faster now, no reason it shouldn't top 7:08
Tesla is Serious About Building F-150 Fighter(Nov 14, 2013)Tesla is doing big things and is leading the charge with EVs and what they can do..no way in hell are they gonna topple the king of the mountain though in terms of pick up trucks..it's gonna roll off the line at 90k plus if they do
