2014 Chevy Camaro Z28

It's back! The z28 is one of the most known Camaros that was ever made. And the new look is so mean! It just looks like it's in a race mode all the time. I love it, and the black rims and spoilers make it unique to all the other Camaro packages. The whole new fascia for the front end is a ton better than the 2013 version. To make it lighter, the Z/28 was made with 19-inch wheels, taking off 42 lbs over the 20-inch rims found on the SS and ZL1. There's no tire inflation kit, trunk carpeting, some sound deadening, and fog lights. Air conditioning is optional, the rear glass is slightly thinner, and the battery is a lightweight unit. The stereo is a single speaker retained for the obligatory seat-belt minder chime. Nine pounds have been cut from the backseat through material changes and doing away with the pass through ability. In the end, the Z/28 weighs 300 lbs less than the ZL1, or about 3,820 lbs. This puts it at 40 lbs lighter than a Camaro SS with a manual transmission and 200 lbs heavier than the Ford Mustang Boss 302. But that is most the information that I found. They like to keep it a surprise too. They haven't even let the price out yet!

2013 Hennessey Venom GT

All I can say is whoa. When you see this car, there's no doubt that it's fast. Even the stock version of this car would blow any average car away. Then having Hennessey upgrade it? Oh man. Any of there cars have way too much power for one man to have. But this is their most powerful one yet. They put the LS7 in this, which is the 7.0L 427 CID aluminum block in it, and that's a crazy huge, crazy powerful motor, basically pushing nothing. Then on top of that they put twin precision turbo ball turbochargers on it. This give it a total of 1,244 horsepower and 1155 lb-ft torque. I think they're trying to make a land rocket, and if so they sure have done it. This car is so light, everything is made out of carbon fiber except for the doors and the roof, weighing in at a little over 2,700 pounds. The aerodynamics of this car are insane too. It lays so low to the ground, and all the flares and the spoiler, it gives it so much down force. I said it was fast right? It's probably classed as beyond fast. It goes 0-60 in 2.7 seconds, 0-100 in 5.6 seconds, and will do a quarter mile in 9.92 seconds. 6 seconds and its over 100! That's insane! I couldn't even grasp being in a car that could do that. I don't think any man could reach it's top speed without being crazy, fastest car in the world reaching 278 mph. Blowing the Bugatti Veyron out of the water at 258 mph. That's getting close to 300, and I don't know if anything is safe going 300 on the ground. But the price for the Hennessey modified Venom GT is $1.1 million dollars. Hats off to the man who can buy this car.

1972 Chevy Nova (Super Sleeper)

I am a huge fan of muscle cars, and this one is probably the most well built, well hidden muscle car sleepers. A sleeper is an old muscle car that doesn't have the greatest looks. Maybe a few rust spots there, and some dents there. But then when you lift the hood, the motor blows your mind. and thats exactly what happened when I was checking this car out. You definitely can't see it, but this beast is carrying 1,160 horsepower and 825 lb-ft torque. This is because this has an all-aluminum LS2 Longblock with twin-superchargers. I'll give you a few minutes to stare in amazement at the picture below.
?How he was able to do that, I don't know. But I do know that they had to reinforce a majority of the body because the amount of power it has would twist the frame like no other. A unique feature of this car is that it has what is called "Octane On Demand" fuel system, which allows the car to carry gas from the fuel pumps at the gas stations, and and also high octane racing fuel. They each have their own set of injectors. The primary one is used for the fuel pump gas, since it is a daily driver. The secondary is used for the racing fuel. So when the driver is cruising through town he is using normal gas, but maybe when he is out on an old country road or maybe even on the highway or interstate and wants to get on it, all he has to do is punch the gas and the secondary fuel system with spray the racing fuel to give the car an instant boost. To give you an idea of how fast it is, it ran a 10.41 at 141 mph on a quarter mile. Overall, this car is truly an amazing and unique car.

2013 VR1200 Cadillac Hennessey Coupe

This is probably the nicest Cadillac you'll ever see, so you better get a really good look at it. They're only making 12 of these monsters. Thats in the world. This thing has so much power it's ridiculous, nobody should possess this much power. But if you're rich you sure could. Which doesn't make since, you know just cause you have alot of money doesn't automatically make you qualified to drive supercars dangerously. Most rich people fail to listen to that advice. And what do they do? They screw around in traffic and it costs them tons of money when they crash their precious Ferrari into the wall. Just something that annoys me. Anyway, back to the car. Let me just start off with telling you that this car has 1,226 horsepower, and 1,109 lb ft torque. Like what more do you need?! Thats insane. I have no words for it. Its 0-60 time is 2.9 seconds. Another mind blower. And get this, its top speed is 242 mph. The reasons it is able to go that fast and aquire so much power is because Hennessey dropped a 7.0L 427 CI aluminum V8 block into this sucker. Oh, and they added twin turbos. It has forged pistons, connecting rods, and crankshaft. Just everything in the whole engine assembly you could possibly upgrade it has done. Superior exhaust system, intercooler, high flow air induction system. The drivetrain assembly comes in manual or automatic, but the automatic costs $20,000 more. Upgraded suspension, brakes, tires, everything. This car is just absolutely amazing. But it also costs $295,000. So good luck with that!?
