2018 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 by Caravaggio Corvettes

Comprehensive Set Of Improvements For A Lot Of Money

Caravaggio Corvettes managed to reconnect the words luxury and Corvette one more time. As we all know, the latest Corvette is quite a car, especially in its high-end forms like the Z06 or the ZR1. However, even its best trim lacked the sophistication and luxurious layout that could be compared with anything similar from Europe. Caravaggio Corvettes, a Corvette modification company known for its specialized approach to customizing Corvettes, designed a new interior, garnished it with leather and other exclusive materials, then actually showcased two tricked out cars.

"Racing-Type Vehicles" Let Connecticut Police Pull Them Over for Going too Slow

Shooting a YouTube video and intentionally holding up traffic isn’t cool

Driving too fast on a highway will almost certainly get you booked. But driving too slow? That actually happens, too, especially when the offending party, or parties, in this case, thinks it can just get away with shooting a video of sorts in the name of YouTube clicks. That’s exactly what happened to a group of drivers that were allegedly rolling down I-15 in Connecticut with their high-powered exotics, except that they weren’t going too fast with their cars, but because they were going too slow.

2019 Chevrolet Yenko Corvette by Specialty Vehicle Engineering

How does a 1,000-horsepower Chevrolet Corvette sound like to all of you

The Chevrolet Yenko Camaro holds a special place in the heart of drag-strip fanatics from the 1960s, in part because of Yenko Chevrolet, the Pennsylvania-based dealership owned by racer Don Yenko that turned production Camaros into go-faster track-spec monsters. Fast forward to this year, though, and the Yenko nameplate is being revived on another performance-focused Chevrolet by New Jersey-based Specialty Vehicle Engineering. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the Chevrolet Yenko Corvette.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2016 Chevy Corvette Stingray

Wallpaper of the Day: 2016 Chevy Corvette Stingray

When Chevy introduced the C7 Corvette, we’re pretty sure that the Earth stood still for a moment. The car managed to maintain the classic Corvette philosophy but came to the market with an all-new design, new powertrain, and a brand-new interior. It was a complete makeover, yet it was still very distinguishable as a Corvette. This is evolution done right, folks. When introduced in 2014, it delivered 455 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque from a naturally aspirated, direct-injected, 6.2-liter V-8. It was also available with a performance exhaust system at launch that raised those figures to 460 and 465, respectively. Zero-to-60 mph? That sprint comes in less than four seconds. Needless, to say, the Corvette is the epitome of sports cars and muscle cars alike, and that’s why we’ve decided to honor it as the Wallpaper of the day. We’ve hand-picked our favorite, but we’ve included a rather sizeable gallery that you’re more than welcome to pick and choose from. Go ahead, now, get to downloading already.

Video of the Day: 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 Top Speed Testing

Video of the Day: 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 Top Speed Testing

These days, there’s so much emphasis on Nurburgring lap times that it seems we hear about a new record, or a new attempt, at least once a week. There’s no doubt the Chevy was doing its best to make a best lap at the famous track after it was spotted there not that long ago. But, Chevy has more than a lap record in mind when it comes to the most powerful production Vette yet. Chevy drug the ZR1 all the way to Germany to put it through the paces at ATP Automotive Testing Papenburg, one of the largest proving grounds in the world and one that has miles upon miles of straight track looped together with banked curves at the end – the perfect recipe for top speed runs.

To make a qualifying run, a vehicle has to make two passes on the track, one in each direction (against and with the wind, naturally.) Once both runs are complete, the times are averaged out to establish a “true top speed.” As it turns out, that ZR1 is everything we hoped it would be, hitting 214.88 mph on one run and 210.20 on another. The true top speed? 212.20 mph. Not too bad at all, right? Well, check out the video of this awesome run below and let us know what you think!
