If you’re itching to get an American supercar in your garage, you could probably do a lot worse than the new 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06, which starts at just $78,995 with delivery. There’s a convertible, too, and it’ll start at $83,995. Based on the incredibly balanced and fun-to-drive Stingray, with the added benefit of yet more suspension work, aerodynamic work, and, of course, all of that power from the supercharged LT4 V-8, the 2015 Corvette Z06 promises to set a new benchmark for value—and is likely to make the Nissan GT-R check its mirror.
What do you do when you have a 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat for the week? Why you go burn its tires down to the cords, of course. And that’s just what we did. It sounds incredible, looks even better, and is probably the most natural muscle car thing in the world. Oh, and it’s also fun.
Have you heard of the Youabian Puma? No? Well, you might wish it had stayed that way, as the enormous, oddly-shaped vehicle is, quite possibly, the ugliest automotive creation built in real life this century. A new promotional video for the car attempts to show it in the best possible light, but if there were ever evidence for the saying, “You can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear,” this is it.
Ford’s 2015 Mustang also made some news this week, although unofficially. According to information leaked on a fan forum, the Mustang with the turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine will rate 22 mpg in the city, 31 mpg on the highway, and 26 mpg combined. That’s not bad at all for a 320-horsepower muscle car.
Adding to the performance splendor that was this past week is Sebastian Vettel and the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge. Pushed hard on the track that gave it its name, the Q50 Eau Rouge looks like one fun car to drive. We can’t wait to give it a shot.
