2016 Chevrolet CamaroEnlarge Photo
We’ve driven the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro and our first drive report went live this week. Here’s a little snippet: “Handling is where the Camaro peels off the muscle car label for good—it's narrower and leaner in absolute terms: it’s how much lighter it feels that’s so impressive.”
2016 Ford Mustang by Bisimoto, 2015 SEMA showEnlarge Photo
While the new Camaro looks nice in black, the Ford Motor Company’s [NYSE:F] Mustang looks absolutely menacing in the same shade, particularly when you add this body kit from AirDesign. This particular car is a 900-horsepower Mustang EcoBoost developed by Bisimoto, and it’s set for a debut at the upcoming SEMA show.
2016 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe track day eventEnlarge Photo
The Cadillac ATS-V and ATS-V Coupe are two of our favorite cars, as you may have noticed after reading our first drive report. They are extremely rewarding cars that put Cadillac in the same stratosphere with the German automakers in terms of engineering prowess. Recently, we took the coupe for a lengthy track day session.

Another beast at the track is the GT-R NISMO. For the 2016 model year, the car gets its awesome N-Attack Package. This is the kit that enabled it to lap Germany’s Nürburgring in only 7:08.679, but it doesn’t come cheap. Pricing starts at $52,000 and tops out at $98,000, and this is on top of the $150k you need to pay for the donor GT-R NISMO.
