2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is a Sports Car Bargain

2017-chevrolet-corvette-grand-sport-1c

At $80,395, I wouldn’t exactly call the Corvette Z06 ‘affordable.’ Affordable in its class, maybe, but if you’re looking for the performance chops of the Z06, in a slightly less powerful package, the Corvette Grand Sport should be your vehicle of choosing. Thankfully, it starts at just $66,445. Continue Reading »

Mercedes Made Audi Into What It Is Today

A story that doesn’t get told enough is how Mercedes directly gave Audi the tools to become a heated rival. In the process, the door might have been held open for BMW, too. Continue Reading »

A Viper, A Track, and the Racing Spirit of Bob Bondurant

The Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in Chandler, Ariz. is now "The Official High Performance Driving School of Dodge/SRT"

“Left, right, left—gun it!” All 645 horsepower roared from underneath the hood of the track-focused Viper GT I was driving. Mumbling to myself, trying to remember everything I had been taught just a few hours earlier. The rugged Tarmac bounced the car up and down like it was riding on jello, my foot 3/4 of the way down, trying to get to 100 before having to slam the brakes and quickly pitch it into a right turn.

McLaren Offering Up Immaculate F1 Supercar, For a Price

6548-McLaren+F1-209

In the final year of F1 production, McLaren only built 64 examples of its fames road car. Now, McLaren Special Operations (MSO) is offering you the chance to buy chassis #069. Of course you’re going to need some very, very deep pockets if you want to bring this beauty home, because the 60th car to roll out of the Woking, England, shop between 1993 and 1998 isn’t going to be anywhere remotely close to affordable for anyone not in the 1%. Given what similar examples have fetched at auction, I’d expect this one to go for around $15 million American dollars. Continue Reading »

Dodge Viper Could Get a More Powerful Final Edition

It’s going to be at least 7 months until the Dodge Viper races off into the sunset, but something tells me production isn’t going to end at 12:00 am on January 1st, 2017. Given the smashing success of the Viper ACR, which currently has a backlog of orders according to Road & Track, it would be foolish for Dodge to wrap things up without building as many Vipers as possible before production shuts down for good.

Like the flying car or the autonomous vehicle, the dream of owning a car that works practically both on land and on sea has been around for decades. The Amphicar kicked off the hype train in the early ‘60s, but Gibbs kept the dream alive in 2003 with the introduction of the Aquada. Continue Reading »

‘Project Predator’ Gives the Jaguar F-Type an Extra 100HP

Few people will drive a Jaguar F-Type R and think to themselves, “hmm, 550 horsepower just isn’t enough.” For those who do want more, Jaguar recently took it up a notch with its 200-mph-breaking and 575 hp ‘SVR’ version. Surely, that’s enough for most palates, but not all.  Continue Reading »

With today’s plethora of futuristic, hybrid supercars like the Porsche 918 and McLaren P1, sometimes it’s refreshing to come across a car that just keeps it old school. There really is nothing like a big V12, three pedals, and a do-it-yourself shifter. Continue Reading »
