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.

Oct 30 2014 9:22am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We live in a world where 200 horsepower is economy-car fare, 300 horsepower is mildly interesting, and 400 horsepower is the minimum needed to command many enthusiasts’ attention. Big horsepower is affordable, too, if you know where to look. In the past decade, the world has seen its share of 400-hp cars, and they’ve now depreciated into the realm of attainability. At $20,000 or so, however, they’re not giveaways, and with ...

This four-door has the chops to back up its performance-oriented name and has some calling it the Corvette sedan we've always wanted. It's been nearly two decades since Chevy had a rear-drive sedan in its showrooms, and ...

MI man bonds with late father by buying his old Corvette

Oct 8 2014 4:03pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Car Buying, Classics, Convertible, Performance, Videos, Chevrolet A few years back, I was catching up with my childhood friend Adam, who told me he had stumbled upon his late father's tow truck in the used-car listings. When I asked him if he'd buy it, he shrugged, "What for?" Maybe if it was a Corvette instead of a tow truck, he'd have felt differently. One Scott Bachman of southern Michigan did. Cherishing childhood memories ...
