It’s The C7 Corvette Versus Europe(12 hours ago)I almost feel like most of the reason it doesn't get taken seriously is because it's so cheap. How could it possibly be anywhere near as good while costing so little? Well, it may not be AS good but it comes a lot closer than its price suggests.
It’s The C7 Corvette Versus Europe(12 hours ago)As for the C7, it's going to take awhile to win the hearts of the Europeans but it's on the right track. You don't break a stereotype overnight. The next mid engined corvette will be another step forward for it to be taken seriously.
It’s The C7 Corvette Versus Europe(12 hours ago)Would have been nice to see how the Huracan would have faired. Also would have been nice to see all the lap times. Aside from that, they found a deserving winner. I'd have put the GT3 in front of the atom though.
Porsche Macan Fails The Moose Test(Oct 16, 2014)v hitting a moose is usually a fatality, as long as your wearing a seatbelt you have a very good chance of surviving a rollover.
Avoid them at all costs.
Porsche Macan Fails The Moose Test(Oct 16, 2014)the moose why wouldn't you gradually rejoin your original lane. The only reason for two emergency maneuvers would be if there was an oncoming vehicle in which case you would probably choose the ditch for your first maneuver.
Porsche Macan Fails The Moose Test(Oct 16, 2014)I'm not sure I would call this a fail. It avoided the "moose" with the initial emergency maneuver and avoided the ditch with the 2nd emergency albeit with a slight lockup. I'm not convinced 2 emergency maneuvers are required. Once you've avoided
Onboard the LaFerrari At 213 mph(Oct 14, 2014)Austin - It holds the lap record @ Fiorano by 3 seconds. I'd say it's pretty good. Eventually we'll see a track comparison with the P1 & 918. We just have to wait for it. I'm not convinced there will be a clear winner.
Aston Martin Lost About $10k on Every Car Sold(Oct 12, 2014)v indeed. It sounds more like a management problem than anything. Aston Martins haven't changed much in the past 10 years. Retooling costs would be down but they still cost heaps. Hope they can get back on track soon.
Lamborghini Will NOT Build the Asterion(Oct 10, 2014)And so begins Lamborghini's decent. Adapt or die off, that is the way of the auto industry. Just as DCT gearboxes have become industry standard so shall hybrid drive trains. Lamborghini won't be able to compete and meet future emission requirements.
Ferrari 458 Spider is Dino’s Greatest Legacy(Oct 09, 2014)Amazing video. A must see. I have complete confidence that the next 458 will be significantly better in every way than the current one. Ferrari is special like that.
1700 HP Battle: 850 HP E63 AMG Vs. 850 HP C6 ZR1(Oct 09, 2014)It's like a feeding frenzy in here. AMG fanboys have never seen one beat a vette before and they are losing their minds about it lol. It's simple physics. Power/weight. Equal hp but the vette weighs 1/2ton less. In a mile long race all that
1700 HP Battle: 850 HP E63 AMG Vs. 850 HP C6 ZR1(Oct 08, 2014)v ya, he obviously missed 2nd gear. Which makes him a useless driver since its a straight pull back.
I pulled a 12.0@119 1/4 mile in my 470hp vette this summer. This guy did it at 130mph. The powers there, just needs a driver.
Meet the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS(Oct 08, 2014)If he did he wouldn't be that fanatical because they aren't the greatest car in the world like he makes them out to be. It's easy to see why they don't cost much once you've lived with one.
Meet the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS(Oct 08, 2014)Iam - ya, I noticed that a long time ago. I'm 100% convinced it's Colby Church's 2nd alias. They write the same and have the same fanatical bias against anything that isn't Vette related. The Ironic part is I don't think he even owns a Corvette.
More Dirt on the Mid-Engined C8 Corvette(Oct 07, 2014)problem. If I can have a faster easier shift I can concentrate on other things, driving becomes smoother and faster. I certainly won't let pride of ability get in the way of a faster method of there is one available.
More Dirt on the Mid-Engined C8 Corvette(Oct 07, 2014)V Aaron - actually for many people it is about a to b. As in how fast can you get from a to b. At the end of the day the manual has become inferior in that respect. I enjoy heel/toeing as much as the next guy but it's a crutch. A way around a
Motor Trend's 2014 Best Driver's Car is...(Oct 01, 2014)Al - It's a moot point. It's meant to be a hardcore track car so it wouldn't make sense to force customers to have equipment they aren't going to use on a track. They are there as options. Stop nitpicking and give credit where credit is due.
Motor Trend's 2014 Best Driver's Car is...(Oct 01, 2014)No prizes for guessing who here owns a mustang and is none too happy about the camaro kicking it's ass with ~150 less hp.
Not only a great track car but a great drivers car as well apparently. They built it right from the word go.
Motor Trend's 2014 Best Driver's Car is...(Sep 30, 2014)Well done Camaro Z/28! The amount of whining going on here is downright embarrassing. It's "Best Drivers Car" and a car with a powerful NA engine, manual transmission, bare bones track tuned and highly competent chassis won. Why are you surprised??
The World's Greatest Drag Race is Back(Sep 28, 2014)Nicholas - sorry bud but the 911 Turbo really is that fast. Doesn't matter who gets behind the wheel it'll do tens whether it's a seasoned pro or your dead grandmother.
Street Fight: Turbo Cobra Vs. 900 HP Nissan (Sep 27, 2014)Al - he's right. 1 bad shift is all it takes. The last time I let someone drive my car they missed a power shift from 3rd to 4th. The M12 didn't blow up or anything but the damage was done. It started grinding into 4th regularly and within a 1000
Motorcyclist Rams Straight into Two Bicyclists(Sep 24, 2014)v if he was going too fast then he wouldn't have sped up like he did just before impact. I think he was looking elsewhere and didn't see them until it was too late. Def a beginner biker.
Dash Cam Caught a Cop Getting Outplayed(Sep 24, 2014)If that was his car, the police would have his plate on camera for sure and he can look forward to some time in prison. Nicely timed move tho, hope the copper was ok.
Lotus is Still Serious About Doing a Sedan and SUV(Sep 21, 2014)The Esprit was a stand out car thanks to its looks and performance even if the build quality was sub par. Now Ferrari is at the top of its game and Lotus is seemingly beyond hope.
I miss the Esprit.
Lotus is Still Serious About Doing a Sedan and SUV(Sep 21, 2014)2000 cars?? How are they still alive? This is really sad, I feel like in years past they had the edge in performance over the competing Ferrari model but since their flagship model became the Elise it's all gone downhill.
Lambo Murcielago LP670-4 Super Veloce Loses to Everyone(Sep 21, 2014)v funny you say that. Went to the street legal drags with my vette Friday night. Posted a 12.01@118 and beat my opponent who apparently had 800whp. He was having trouble with the launch and asked me to drive his car for him!!
