Hot Wheels celebrated its 50th Anniversary last year and Chevrolet did a commemorative car for the occasion. Here is our standard “all car, no talking” video from a street drive:
Ahead of its official debut at the New York Auto Show, Chevrolet took the wraps off its newest high performance Camaro variant, the ZL1. While the sixth generation Camaro SS we drove last year offered impressive performance in its own right, the ZL1 model promises to ratchet up the pony car’s capabilities substantially.
When a manufacturer launches a new model they normally invite journalists out to a specific location to drive it. These media programs are usually held under somewhat controlled circumstances on what essentially amounts to a large driving loop, routing you through the roads they want you to go through and avoiding the ones they do not. Sometimes this is done for the express purpose of avoiding the potential shortcomings of the vehicle, like suspension that might be too harsh on some surfaces or an engine lacking guts in certain situations.

Today we’re behind the wheel of Chevrolet’s pony car contender. The Camaro received a refresh for the 2014 model year that includes revised front and rear fascia styling, new headlamps and taillamps, and a new SS hood that draws inspiration from the heat extractors first seen on the 2012 Camaro ZL1.
This week we setting our sights on one of most potent muscle cars on sale today, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. While it boasts plenty of performance right off the showroom floor, once the engineers at Lingenfelter got their hands on this blown drop-top, things get especially interesting.
When the pony car wars ramped up a few years ago with the reintroduction of the Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro, many expected Mopar to be the company to beat when it came to horsepower, as was the case the first time around back in the late 1960s when the burly 440 six-pack and 426 HEMI engines dominated drag strips around the country. However, Chrysler’s resistance to forced induction meant that when the supercharged ZL1 Camaro and Mustang GT500 hit the streets, SRT didn’t have the hardware to answer back with. That may be about to change in dramatic fashion, though.
Chevrolet’s new track-focused Z/28 Camaro has now produced a racing version, dubbed the Camaro Z/28.R. The Z/28.R will make its competition debut this weekend in the GS class of the IMSA Continental Tires SportsCar Challenge – one of the lead-up events for the Rolex 24 At Daytona.
Commemorating its 30th year of tuning big performance into late-model vehicles, Saleen Automotive will be marking the occasion with limited production versions of the Saleen 302 Mustang, 570 Challenger and 620 Camaro, dubbed the SA-30.
In this video, Chevy pits its Nürburgring-worthy 2014 Camaro Z/28 against the rival Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca at the General Motors proving grounds in Milford, Michigan.
Chevrolet Performance has announced its collection of performance parts for the fifth-generation (2010 model year and newer) Camaro. The factory-engineered parts for the Camaro V-6 and SS are borrowed from the ZL1 and SS 1LE. When installed by the dealer, many of the parts do not affect the car’s current warranty.
