What's so impressive about the 2014 Chevy Camaro Z28? Well, for starters, it can beat the lap times of the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 and the 911 Carrera S, with credit going to the 7-liter LS7 V8 engine. For real, that bad boy throws 505 horsepower with 481 pound feet of torque. More interesting might be the front tires. They're Pirelli P Zero Torfeo R series, and are the wides of any car in production, anywhere. Now if only the center console didn't look like it was pulled out of 1997.

When you enlist a French supercar manufacturer to create a teaser video for a car, you end up with a piece that's as long as a theatrical trailer. Bugattis have never been subtle, so why should their teaser be anything less than they are?
Many are familiar with the Bugatti Veyron, but Bugatti decided it too needed to venture back into the four-door car market. Heck, if Lamborghini and Porsche are doing it, why shouldn’t they? So with all this in mind, Bugatti has released a teaser for the Bugatti Galibier four-door concept. Checkout the Galibier above and what Bugatti’s about after the jump!
It’s big, it’s loud, we’re pretty sure it spits out Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth as it rolls by—the long awaited, fifth generation, Dodge Viper.
Unlike most sensible automakers who are seen tuning down their cars, replacing motors for batteries and what not, Dodge decided it’d be a fitting time to have a proper V8 roam the streets once more. Yet, this wasn’t a simple redesign, but an overhaul of the Viper posters that hung on our walls as children.
So how do you welcome the new Viper? Through YouTube videos, of course! Follow the jump to watch them all.
If you find yourself to be one of the lucky owners of the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, you should be enjoying the fast lane with a huge grin on your face. Who else on the road can complete with you, achieve 0-62 in a little over 3 seconds. But as all good things come to an end, your days are numbered too.
Ferrari announced that it will soon be replacing the Enzo with something mind blowing, as usual. So what does that mean for you, who possibly just purchased a F12 Berlinetta? Well, you’ll be downgraded to the slow lane, as Ferrari is planning on releasing a street legal F-1 power status, streetcar. Ferrari will be giving previews of the supercar to potential buyers by the end of the year. The public will be graced with its presence most likely at the Detroit Motor Show or Geneva Motor Show in March.
And if you’re wondering about the price, Ferrari Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo says, “We want to surprise people not just in terms of price but also with the car itself.” So that means free, right?
We’re always fan of interesting marketing technics, but this one takes that cake. Ford has unleashed a series of marking campaigns in this years Sports Illustrated Swimsuit magazine that feature the sexy Mustang in different colors alongside one beautiful model in a matching swimsuit. The model, Dalena Henriques, never shows her face, but it credited in each ad.
A quick Google search for Dalena Henriques brings up DalenaHenriques.com, no surprise there. The thing is, when you visit the site, every photo in her portfolio features her with the Mustang, with no face revealed. It then becomes obvious--Ford created a fake supermodel (and yes, they credited her as a "supermodel") of their own as an additional means to generate buzz.
