The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V: 640hp in a family sedan. Yeah we want one

Cadillac has come a long way in reviving the brands image as an old mans car. The CTS played a big roll in that, and then the CTS-V smashed that stuffy old mold into a million pieces. Now that we are three generations into the CTS the V model is bigger and better in nearly every way.
You probably don’t need a 200mph 640hp family sedan, but you probably want one. 0-60 will come in at 3.7 seconds ensure your kids the best run to school imaginable.

2015 Corvette Z06 0-60 in under 3 seconds

When the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 dropped earlier this year I might have called it the greatest car ever. Now we have numbers to back that up. It turns out the new Z06 will do 0-60 in 2.95 seconds which is pretty damn fast. Who needs AWD? Not the Corvette Z06. Nissan GTR fanboys better watch out because the Americans are coming. Then there’s that little issue of quartermile. Well we speculated it might be a ten second car right out of the box and it is. The quartermile comes in at 10.95 seconds. That’s stupid fast for a factory car.
Let’s not forget the price. Coming in under $80,000 it begs the question. Why the hell does a slower, less reliable, less efficient Ferrari cost nearly $300,000? I have no clue, I’ll take the Z06. Readers, this is best car in the world. It’s American, and it’s obtainable. We live in amazing times. More after the jump.

The 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat

Sometimes life requires four doors. If your life falls into that catagory don’t panic and go buy some damned minivan because Dodge has you covered. Not to long ago the Dodge Challenger Hellcat was born it was inevitable that soon it’s four door brother the Charger would get the monster 707hp Supercharged 8 cylinders of kickass too. That day is here.
The Charger is stuffed with the same goodies you get in the Challenger and of course two extra doors. I’m sure a lot of die hard Mopar guys are still a bit sore that the Charger got four doors in the first place but surely the fact that it is now the fastest production sedan… the world makes up for it right?

More info and pics after the jump.

McLaren gets it’s freak on at Pebble Beach

McLaren GT has today confirmed that it will premiere its latest model at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, with the wraps set to come off the track-only 650S Sprint. The stripped-out racer will make its global debut alongside a number of other models from McLaren Automotive, and completes the brand’s display with four global debuts planned for the Californian event, including the McLaren P1™ GTR.
Based on the recently launched McLaren 650S Coupe, the track-focused 650S Sprint is fitted with developments to the Brake Steer system, even more refined active aerodynamics and a race set-up for the ProActive Chassis Control (PCC). These upgrades deliver a more engaging GT racing experience, without losing any of the refinement and balance found in the road car.
