HYUNDAI TAKES ON LAMBORGHINI?

By Steve Goodman

It’s mid- January, and that means that most of our New Year’s resolutions have already fallen by the wayside. Not so for Hyundai, who resolved last year to create a supercar to rival the likes of Lamborghini and the rest of the world’s top supercars.

At the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Vegas, Luc Donkerwolke, head designer for Hyundai N, the Korean car maker’s newly formed performance division, announced that it was full speed ahead on the project. Speaking to Australian publication, Drive at CES, Donkerwolke confirmed that, “Hyundai N is definitely working on a supercar.”

While the headline of this article would probably have been considered a joke by car enthusiasts about a decade ago, since Hyundai launched their performance division... (Read More)


WHY YOU NEED AN AMPLIFIER

Boost Your Signal and Clean Up Your Audio!          

Upgraded speakers can do a lot to improve the quality of audio in your vehicle, but without an amplifier you’re not getting anywhere close to the full benefit. Why wouldn’t you want to hear your new speakers at their best?

Most factory head units/AV Receivers/decks/radios – the thing in your dash that plays music goes by many names – have four outputs at roughly 50 watts each. By comparison, most aftermarket players send out twice as much power on four-to-six channels, in a more accurate way with higher-end sound processing. (Read More!)

Chevrolet today dropped the top on the 2019 Corvette ZR1 with the global introduction of the ZR1 convertible, the first ZR1 drop-top since the original 1970 model-year ZR1.

On sale next spring alongside the Corvette ZR1 coupe, the ZR1 convertible emphasizes Corvette’s iconic proportions and functional sculpture, highlighting the seamless transition between the exterior and interior.

The ZR1 coupe will carry a suggested retail price of $119,995, while the ZR1 convertible will start at $123,995 (prices include destination charge, but exclude tax, title and other dealer fees).

“The new Corvette ZR1 convertible is a supercar in all respects,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Few others can challenge the ZR1 convertible’s power and speed while offering the exhilaration of top-down motoring.”

The performance and technology introduced on the Corvette ZR1 coupe carry over to the new ZR1 convertible. The strength of the Corvette’s aluminum chassis means the only structural changes in the convertible are accommodations for the folding top and repositioned safety belt mounts. The power top can be operated remotely or while driving up to 30 mph... (Read More)

Special aero, adjustable suspension, exclusive tires drive unprecedented performance for a production sports car

DAYTONA, Fla. — Chevrolet has established a new performance benchmark with the introduction of the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE — the most track-capable Camaro ever.

Taking the track-focused 1LE formula to an unprecedented level, the ZL1 1LE incorporates racing-based suspension and aero technologies, as well as exclusive Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R summer-only tires,* in an extreme track performance package.

“The track-focused 1LE package offers progressive levels of performance across the Camaro lineup, from the V6 1LE to the SS 1LE,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. “But with the new ZL1 1LE, the progression takes a quantum leap — this is the ultimate track-day Camaro.”

In preliminary testing, the new ZL1 1LE was 3 seconds faster than the standard ZL1 Coupe around General Motors’ 2.9-mile, 18-turn Milford Road Course test track.

The improved track performance is driven by four key elements... (READ MORE!)
