  • 2014 Shelby GT500 tribute car on Jay Leno's Garage

    A special 2014 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake roared into Jay Leno's Garage for a new episode. Actor Jim Caviezel is the proud owner, and he's turned the car into a rolling tribute for the fallen members of SEAL Team Six aboard Extortion 17. Caviezel is heavily involved with the military and the idea to turn this GT500 Super Snake into a tribute came after he was inspired by a novel detailing what a group of SEALs experienced serving their country. The trident belonging to Chris Kyle sits proudly beneath the hold along with the names of 19 SEAL team members who lost their lives in Extortion...

  • Hennessey HPE1000 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

    For most, the 650 horsepower offered by the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is more than you’ll ever need in a front-engined, rear-wheel-drive sports car.

Here we see Hennessey testing a new 1,000-horsepower—yes, one thousand horsepower—package for the Corvette Stingray.
