The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro

It’s here, and if you haven’t seen the photos yet you are in luck. I’ve got a few. I’ll hold judgement until I see them in person. Part of me loves it, part of me hates, it but a bigger part of me loves the 455hp V8. You’ll get three options of engine a 275hp turbo four banger, a 335hp V6, and the big dog LT1 455hp V8. You’ll want that last one. The interior is pretty darn sweet so that’s a nice step forward. I’m sure it will be a hoot to drive. Who knows maybe we’ll get to test one someday.

On with the photos!

Lotus goes green with their new racer

When I’m looking through the dozen or two press releases I get each day I’m looking for specific things. Muscle cars, interesting technology, and cars that look crazy. If a car looks crazy and is green that’s probably going to get my attention. Lotus is today’s winner of the green car contest with their new racing Elise Cup R. att29b4a

Renowned for its race-bred ethos, the development of the Elise Cup R into an enticing new model is now complete.

Following extensive testing, Lotus has finely honed its engaging Elise S into a Cup variant. A dramatic 3.0s reduction of the Hethel lap time of the Elise S suggests that enthusiasts seeking a viable track-day / road car need look no further.
