2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 aims at the Boss 302

Track day beast!

Although I've owned more Ford Mustangs any other vehicle in my life, I'm not really a Ford person. I like all kinds of vehicles, I just happen to like reasonably priced American muscle. There were some things about the new Camaro but I didn't like which left me purchasing a Ford. I am very interested in the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.

This isn't like the Z/28 of the late 80s and 90s, this new Z/28 is a naturally aspirated American muscle car designed specifically for track day enthusiasts. Chevrolet calls this the ultimate track-capable Camaro. The vehicle uses a high revving dry-sump LS7 with carbon-ceramic brakes and fluid coolers specifically made for track work.

The only potential downside to this car is that it has a stripped-down interior that may make it uncomfortable for some drivers. The car is also light with a curb weight by 300 pounds less than other Camaros in the line and has a special tracking suspension and aerodynamic treatments. The engine produces 500 hp and 470 pound-foot of torque. Pricing is unannounced, but if those carbon ceramic brakes are standard you can bet this will be the most expensive Camaro in the line.

Aston Martin has produced its first suite of images of its gorgeous Lagonda hyperluxury sedan in production form.

Chevrolet Silverado Toughnology Concept Touts Steel’s Supremacy, Somewhat Wrongly

Sep 30 2014 5:46pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Ford’s dramatic switch to an aluminum pickup body for the 2015 F-150 has dramatically outshone the new-for-2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, and the Ford isn’t even on sale yet. Well, hold your horses, Ford fans, because Chevy’s going to tell you why steel is still king. What you’re looking at is a stock 2015 Silverado 1500 LTZ with a bill of materials painted on its body. The Silverado Toughnology concept, unveiled at the Texa ...

Pontiac Firebird in latest Generation Gap scrap

Sep 30 2014 3:52pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Classics, Coupe, Performance, Videos, Pontiac Generation Gap is mining the Lingenfelter collection again this week to compare two very different interpretations of the Pontiac Firebird. An original 1968 example goes toe-to-toe with a 2010 Lingenfelter Trans Am to see whether the old man or the modern re-imagining takes the crown. Being from the Lingenfelter collection, both cars are absolutely immaculate. The '68 packs a Pontiac 350-cubic-inch ...

Is Driving a Certain Car Your Ticket to Traffic Court?

Sep 30 2014 1:49pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

Look, just because you drive a Subaru WRX doesn't mean you're more likely to be the type of person who exceeds the speed limit or breaks other traffic laws. OK, it actually does mean that, but we're not the ones saying it, Insurance.com is. The auto-insurance rate-comparison website analyzed online quote info from more than half a million drivers and more than 500 car models between January 2013 and July 2014, and identified the cars most likely to ...

Ford has promised that its new aluminum-bodied 2015 F-150 pickup would set new standards in capability from the moment the sheet came off the truck in January. It’s the sort of marketing speak that typically draws eye rolls—but it turns out Ford wasn’t joking. According to the 2015 F-150′s officially stated towing and payload numbers, the thing will be able to tow up to 12,200 pounds and haul up to 3300 pounds ...

Video: 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Hits the Nurburgring

Sep 30 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

You might be tempted to think that the 2015 Corvette Z06 is ready to hit the streets now that its configurator is online, but you’d be wrong. Refining a super-fast vehicle that’s based on a true-blue race car is a long and difficult task, and it seems Chevy is spending a lot of time doing that. With just a few months left until the first Z06s start rolling off the assembly line, GM’s halo sports car is being put through its paces on the Nurburgr ...
