We know you love your Corvettes, but Chevrolet will be breaking new ground with the introduction of the new 6th generation 2016 Camaro in Detroit on May 16th. The Camaro reveal will be part of a day-long celebration on Belle Isle, the 982-acre island park that will host the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix from May 29-31th.
Remember when the tiny college football team went up against the high-and-mighty Division I squad and barely lost – a moral victory of sorts?
This video taken from the Performance Data Recorder of the Z06 serves as an automotive reminder of that very kind of situation.
On paper, pitting a $100,000 Corvette Z06 against a million-dollar McLaren P1 shouldn’t be much of a contest.
For years, Cadillac has been trying to make a name for itself as a luxury performance carmaker.
Most enthusiasts would say they’ve done a very good job of it with cars like the CTS and ATS.
Soon, though, it appears that Cadillac’s racy resume will be even more impressive as it will be able to boast of having the fastest car in the entire General Motors fleet.
No Corvette this year for the Super Bowl MVP.
That’s the word from Automotive News regarding General Motors’ advertising plans for this year’s Super Bowl.
GM will skip the ads during the game but will still have a presence as Chevrolet will be presenting the game’s MVP with the new mid-size Colorado truck during the post-game show.
Here’s the first video we’ve seen that has the all new 2015 Corvette Z06 going head to head in various highway pulls against its primary domestic competitor, a 2014 Viper TA. Was this the expected result?
America’s two best sportscars battle it out to see who is the king of the road. Both vehicles are 100% stock. Outdoor temperature was 57F. A total of 7 clean runs were made, from varying mph starts and finishes.

If you want a 4×4 with a touch of Corvette, then Wildcat Automotive (which claims “Off Road Is Our Road” as its slogan) out of the United Kingdom has just the thing for you.
It’s a Rover Defender with the same kind of LS3 small block 6.2-liter V8 that powered the C6 Chevrolet Corvette so admirably from 2005 to 2013.

The factory Viper racing program is no more.
Despite winning both the 2014 Driver and Team Championships in this year’s inaugural TUDOR United Sports Car Championship and coming in second place for the Manufacturers Title, Chrysler has decided to end the Viper’s race program.
An old adage says that imitation is the best form of flattery. Obviously we were not the only ones that recognized the high bar in terms of value set by Chevrolet’s performance leader, the Corvette Z06. The folks over in Auburn Hills (that’s Chrysler headquarters) also have come to realize that the 600 SRT Vipers sitting unsold weren’t flying out the dealers’ doors; in fact they aren’t even limping out the doors, and compared to the new Corvette Z06 things were obviously going to get worse for SRT’s sports car.
Last month only 38 SRT 2014 Vipers were sold. That rate of sale equates to a full year and a half supply of unsold 2014 cars and the 2015s are on their way. It doesn’t take a marketing genius to realize that when the new Corvette Z06 hits the dealerships in late December or early January things for the Viper wouldn’t get any better especially considering the price of a 2014 SRT Viper is $101, 300, over $20K more than the more potent 2015 Z06.
