Need to take a ride cross country in the lap of luxury while still getting some work done? Short of a tour bus, the Concept One Curve from Lexani Motorcars might be one of the most comfy options imaginable.
With 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque pumping out of a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 and starting at $78,995, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is a performance powerhouse for its price. However, not everyone wants to drop that much cash on a sports coupe, especially when the base 2015 'Vette is a pretty potent package already... for tens of thousands of dollars less. However, for buyers wanting a taste of the Z06 in their regular C7, the Chevrolet Performance catalog might be more than rea
Echo Tells SEC It 'Does Not Have Adequate Liquidity'
Not to state the obvious, but an echo is about all that's left for the plug-in hybrid vehicle system maker of the same name. Echo Automotive, which was led by the engineering team of the defunct Bright Automotive, has run out of cash. Echo said in a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing last month that it couldn't pay its debts and is "exploring options to restructure its business." The stock still trades Over the Counter (OTC), but it is worthless. The filing flat-out says, "the Compa
West Coast Customs is in trouble with federal authorities and will be forced to pay over $150,000 thanks to charges that employees were chronically underpaid between November 2010 and January 2013, according to a report from The Press-Enterprise.
Purchasing these things can actually hurt your car's value and performance
By spending money on maintenance and some upgrades, you can improve your car's reliability and overall life expectancy. You can also reduce safety risks and expensive repairs. Changing the oil regularly, replacing worn-out tires, and getting your wheels aligned periodically are all no-brainers.
Vilner turned its customary and intensely luxurious attentions to a two-door Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited back in 2012, following that up this year with its take on the four-door version. A coat of lustrous black paint outside is brightened up LED headlights, foglights and taillights and layers of chrome laid on the grille, mirrors, door handles and fuel filler cap.
The most recent installment of the Fast & Furious franchise spent much of its time in London, and naturally that meant another one of those interchangeable nighttime party scenes with loud exhausts, loud paint jobs, loud music and loud attire. Vice magazine went to London to check out the real tuner-car lifestyle in a documentary called Boy Racer, and in spite of not coming across a single vintage Dodge Charger or sky blue Porsche 911 GT3 RS, there's a lot of what you'd expect.
Imagine, if you will, that you began living under a rock from January 13, 2013 on, and only emerged long enough to purchase a sixth-generation Chevrolet Corvette. You had no knowledge of the heavily redesigned, seventh-generation Corvette - it's shapely new body and enthusiast-infuriating rear taillights were as foreign as the Bhagavad Gita recited in Klingon. On one of your rare outings from your rocky dwelling and behind the wheel of your C6 Vette, though, you stumbled upon one of Chevy's new
Water transfer printing – or hydrographics – isn't exactly a new art. But HG Arts, a Barcelona-based hydrographics trainer and equipment supplier, has released a pretty cool video showing how this process can be used to spruce up an otherwise boring wheel.
Imagine stuffing six Toyota Prius engines into a single Chevrolet Corvette. The fuel economy would probably suffer, but the car's pick-up sure would be impressive. And that's sort of what Maryland-based aftermarket-product maker Quanta is proposing with a hybrid kit for the iconic General Motors sports car, Gizmag reports.
Toyota has six vehicles that it's bringing to the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show next week, all of which were developed by and for people who live active lifstyles. Four of them are the result of the Toyota Dream Build Challenge, which tasked a team of athletes and vehicle customization shops to build Toyota sedans, pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles in seven weeks that would enhance performance in their respective sports.
ABT Sportsline, known as ABT Tuning from its founding in 1967 until 1991, is a German aftermarket parts and tuning company that has focused on enhancing Volkswagens and Audis since the VW GTI bowed in 1978 (in Europe, at least) and races competitively in DTM (Germany's touring car racing series). The company has kept its roots in Europe for all of these years, but will debut the AS6, based on the Audi A6, at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) in a couple weeks before opening up sh
There's nothing like a factory-built part, especially of the performance variety: you can make your car faster, often without voiding the vehicle warranty. Take the Chevrolet Camaro, for instance, and imagine being able to swap some of the most crucial ZL1 parts onto your SS or V6 model. Well, that's now a reality because Chevrolet Performance has announced that it offers a slew of the high-performance parts found on high-end V8 and, in particular, supercharged Camaro models for installation ont
Once you get past the fact that it's hard to call a car a sleeper when it has race-product stickers on its quarter panel, and the script across the back panel reads "Porsche 911 3.2 Sleeper," it's fun to imagine what this car can do. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911, Germany's DP Motorsport took a model from 1986, stripped it of everything – including the paint and undercoating – then replaced everything with lightweight and race-ready parts.
