Corvette-Powered Track Day Beast Starts at $149,000

Performance should be very impressive

A company called Innotech has unveiled a car built specifically to destroy race tracks called the Aspiron. The car will be unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in a few weeks and the car is designed specifically to appeal to track day enthusiasts. The vehicle will start at $149,000.

The car has a very angular nose that looks a lot like a Radical and features a large rear wing for downforce. The car has little interior and no roof featuring six-point harnesses and a digital instrument cluster. The car will be powered by various GM V-8 engines including a 6.2-liter LS9.

That LS9 engine can be tuned for 800 hp. The company will also offer a version powered by ethanol able to produce 1000 hp. All engines use a six speed manual transmission and a limited slip differential. The entry-level $149,000 version has 500 hp.

Road Test: In The Age of the C7 Corvette, Is There A Future For The Dodge Viper?

Sep 25 2014 8:47pm CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

Not even two years since it began production, the biggest news we’ve heard about the latest version of the venerable Dodge Viper (or, formerly, SRT Viper) is that Chrysler decided to slash its price by $15,000 due to low sales; certainly not the splash they hoped to make after resurrecting the serpent after a three-year hiatus. A lower price, now starting at $86,880, should help, but sales will still be an uphill battle for the Viper. For ...

GM Recalls Impala, XTS for Braking Problems

Sep 24 2014 10:53am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

GM is recalling more than 220,000 full-size sedans because the electric parking brake may stay partially engaged while driving. The 2014-2015 Chevrolet Impala and 2013-2015 Cadillac XTS have faulty electric parking-brake software that can result in the pads touching the rotors even after the brake is released. Of course, driving with the pads dragging the rear rotors causes excessive brake wear and can lead to roto ...

Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray By GeigerCars

Sep 22 2014 4:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

It’s no secret the Corvette C7 Stingray is a hot performer. With its 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque, the C7 launches itself to 60 mph in a very respectable 3.9 seconds. Its handling is spectacular too, thanks in part to the Magnetic Ride Control shocks and other Z51-specific parts. However, improvements can always be made.That’s where one tuner company based in Germany steps in. GeigerCars has developed a performance upgrade kit that ...

Few cars have garnered more attention than the new American performance trifecta. Between the C7 Corvette , the Challenger Hellcat , and the 2015 Ford Mustang it's like the hopes and dreams of a nation are riding on front-engine/rear-drive domination. Now I've driven all three, and it's a tire-shredding reminder that it's a good time to be al ...
