Corvette C7

 After 60 years of making the Corvette, Chevy finally released the 7th edition (C7) Corvette this year. The new Vette has new styling that GM hopes will appeal to a younger audience, and wash away the stereotype as an old man's car. This means sharper edges and bringing back the stingray name that has not been on a corvette since 1976.

They also gave it plenty of power, the 2014 corvette has a LT1 6.2L V8 that make 455-460 bhp, depending on the exhaust  choice of the customer. It is not just raw power though, the new corvette has some great technology in it. While when driving the car at it's limits you have 8 cylinders to keep you going, when cruising at speed the car can change to only using 4 or 6 of its cylinders in order to save gas and be Eco friendly.

Eco friendly does not necessarily mean that is a cool car though. They also gave the car a carbon fiber hood (along with other parts), a 7 speed manual transmission, and finally changed the infamous interior of previous corvettes. So maybe GM finally has a car that truly can compete with a Ferrari.

Ferrari F12berlinetta

The Ferrari F12 has been a hit since it was released last year, being titled the "Supercar of the Year" by TopGear.com. This replaces the 599 in the Ferrari lineup, but nothing is lost due the performance this car has. It has nearly 750 horsepower and double clutch technology in the transmission taken straight from Ferrari's Formula 1 car. This means that it it can go 0-100km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.1 seconds and run a 1/4 mile in 11.1 seconds. This is exception for a street car, even coming from Ferrari, as the Ferrari Enzo runs the same 1/4 mile in 11.0 seconds.

We would like to thank www.spottedcars.fr for the featured picture at the top and we encourage everyone to go check the car photos on their website.

Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster

We just recently posted about the Lamborghini Aventador, but Lamborghini has recently stepped up their once top of the line car by releasing a roadster (convertible) version. This release has been highly anticipated since the one of a kind Aventdaor J (red car below) was released at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The Aventador J remains a one off car that permanently lacks a roof, while the roadster is just like any other convertible. Except for the fact that it has a price tag of $441,600.

2014 Chevy Corvette C7

The next generation Chevy Corvette C& was released last Sunday (January 13, 2013) at the North American International Auto Show. This seventh generation Corvette looks much more modern than before, but still maintains that made in America feel that we have got accustom to with the long front, short back, and of course the air inlets behind the front wheels. This has been the most anticipated Corvette in a long time and while we still have a lot to learn about the car before you can buy one in 2014, it looks like this is a very promising car. Only time will tell if it can live up to the high standard set by more than 60 years of great Corvettes before it.
