Corvette Stingray Debuts in Green(3 hours ago)Patrick - On the C5 & C6 they left some space between the two sides which makes all the difference. Putting them all in a row just looks too busy, and the rear is already busy enough.
Looking Back at the Toyota Supra(11 hours ago)Never was a fan of these. The interior looked brutal compared to similar year competitors....300ZX TT and the RX7. I never would have guessed the potential engine output way back then and the cult like status it would achieve.
Corvette Stingray Debuts in Green(16 hours ago)worst corvette rear end in years. The 4 pipes in a row just looks stupid. And yes, the design is wayyyy busier than every vette that's come before it. Just looks like too many people were involved in the design and nobody compromised.
Schumacher Laps the Ring in F1 Car(May 22, 2013)the ring is bumpy therefore he needed more suspension travel, which means raised ground clearance, which means much less downforce, which means slower cornering speeds, which means less tire friction, which means less tire heat, which means less grip
MT Drives the GT-R Track Pack(May 22, 2013)major respect for this car but its not a car I would choose to buy. I think it looks great inside and out but the weight is the main issue for me.
Forza 5 Previewed for Xbox One(May 22, 2013)the roads here are complete shit. They are straight and flat and full of potholes. I really envy people who live near smooth winding roads.
Forza 5 Previewed for Xbox One(May 22, 2013)A track day for me costs min $500. I love going but it's a 600km round trip so I don't go very often. I enjoy the online competition of GT5 in between real track events which are only time attack. Street driving doesn't interest me much because
BMW, Toyota Rule Out F1 Return(May 21, 2013)They are middle of the pack this year. Usually by this point it's very hard to gain ground. Every team is developing their cars at breakneck speeds. I'm hoping for a miracle though. They are a great team.
Cars and Coffee Boston(May 20, 2013)Shelby - assists are defeatable in the 458 and most any sportscar. Your argument is invalid.
Cars and Coffee Boston(May 20, 2013)Colby - I know you can't accept that someone might prefer something other than a vette. It just shows how close minded you are. My friend says he likes the Viper more because even though its not as fast, its more exhilarating to drive. His words.
Cars and Coffee Boston(May 20, 2013)I'd take the Ferrari. The GT40 might look nicer but I bet it's not as entertaining.
Could Honda Power McLaren Sportscars?(May 18, 2013)The engines they sold Lotus were just passenger car (Elise/Exige) and minivan (Evora) engines. Not designed specifically for sportscars. Lotus did the best they could with intake/exhaust/tuning but still the engines have been described as lacking
Streamlining a Truck's Aerodynamics(May 18, 2013)I still think the ram looks better, more stylish and contemporary. This looks too blocky and the front grill looks straight off a Ford but with smaller slats.
McLaren Already Planning Next P1(May 17, 2013)how does admitting a mistake make him look like a douche?? Not admitting a mistake when facts that prove you wrong are hitting you in the face makes you look like a douche.
McLaren Already Planning Next P1(May 17, 2013)imo the 918 is really beautiful, but it's too soft looking where the P1 has a more purposeful shape overall. A hypercar should look a little wild and crazy, of course there are those cars that try to hard and go the other way like the Veneno.
McLaren Already Planning Next P1(May 17, 2013)Carlos - excellent point. The 991 turbo is bound to have spectacular performance. I suppose they will have to elevate the performance of the next MP4-12C significantly in order to justify the additional cost = enter hybrid tech here.
McLaren Already Planning Next P1(May 17, 2013)no, it was designed and priced to compete with the 458 Italia. 911 turbo is quite a bit cheaper even though it offers similar performance.
Rare Corvette C6RS Up For Sale(May 17, 2013)But yes, your right. They successfully built the motor to have a very wide and usable power band, hence the huge naturally aspirated displacement. After reading several articles about this car the general consensus is that it feels extremely fast
24 Incredible Headlight Designs(May 17, 2013)no assumptions were made, I just call things as they appear. And in comparison to the Audi units, these appear cheap... inferior or not inferior has nothing to do with what I said. just to clarify.
Mercedes Reveals the New S-Class(May 17, 2013)Yea Sean jeez lol. anyways ya, the 911 is definitely the benchmark for sportscars and has been for a very long time. Good call carbuzz.
Rare Corvette C6RS Up For Sale(May 17, 2013)I was using motor trends zr1 weight of 3358lbs when I calculated the p/w since it was between road & tracks 3405lbs and car & drivers 3333lb curb weights respectively. not sure what you were trying to say in your previous comment.
Rare Corvette C6RS Up For Sale(May 17, 2013)Oh really? Then prove it! What comparison are you referring to exactly? I know auto week compared the two and the ZR1 ended up being slightly faster. Your just another jackass pretending to be a know-it-all like a few other fanboys on here.
Honda Confirms Return to F1(May 16, 2013)output @ 600hp due to the fuel restriction. You need energy to make hp, fuel is the energy. Reduction in fuel = reduction in hp.
Honda Confirms Return to F1(May 16, 2013)The engines need to be much more efficient because they will only be given 100kg of fuel for an entire race. Right now they use 160kg of fuel. While they will incorporate some additional energy recovery systems the engines themselves will only
24 Incredible Headlight Designs(May 16, 2013)These look quite cheap compared to the audi's. like a bunch of led's behind plastic instead of one smooth line.
Harris Drives Porsche 918 Spyder(May 16, 2013)It will be overshadowed by the Ferrari and McLaren but this is nothing new. Because the P1 and LaFerrari are being produced in such limited quantities, I really don't think Porsche will have any trouble selling their hybrid supercar.
Honda Confirms Return to F1(May 16, 2013)hopefully they can resolve their issues sooner rather than later. Same with Mercedes. It's more exciting when all the top teams are closely matched.
Rare Corvette C6RS Up For Sale(May 16, 2013)AJ - that comparison was with a corvette racing factory sponsored C6R, which is miles different than this car.
Rare Corvette C6RS Up For Sale(May 16, 2013)Actually, they only changed out the block, crank & rods. The intake and heads are standard Z06 items so the engine feels the same as a regular Z06 but just with more power. And at 3200lbs it's power to weight is slightly worse than a ZR1's.
Motoring TV: Top Gear(May 16, 2013)hard to pick without sampling them both. The R8 looks better but the vette is faster & probably alot more exciting. Win win decision really.
Rare Corvette C6RS Up For Sale(May 15, 2013)No worries Justin, the main reason the cost was so high is because Caravaggio did it. Their seats and wheels are pretty pricy so I'm not surprised it cost that much to redo an entire interior/cage.
Ferrari 458 Destroyed at Suzuka(May 15, 2013)I wonder how the driver lost control in the first place, looked like it happened at the end of a long straight. Another Ferrari sacrifices itself to save its occupant. Well done.
Rare Corvette C6RS Up For Sale(May 15, 2013)considering they replaced the seats and recovered every surface in the car, including the cage, and did a great job of it obviously, $30k doesn't sound outrageous to me.
Rare Corvette C6RS Up For Sale(May 15, 2013)My brother has a caravaggio steering wheel in his vette. This is how corvettes should have come from the factory. just gorgeous.
Subaru BRZ Tuned to 450 HP(May 15, 2013)no such thing as a "gently used s2000" since the power doesn't come on until most other cars have gone past redline and are starting to chuck vitals out through the side of the block.
P1 Supercar Sunday 2013(May 14, 2013)Jon - He was just describing the different paint scheme it had, no need to criticize.
Supercars Invade the Highway(May 14, 2013)XJR-15 was an early 90's racecar modified to be a limited production streetcar. Upon closer inspection I don't think this is one of those although it looks quite similar. Not sure what it is.
