The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE looks every bit like a weapon of mass trackstruction. Not a week after that street-legal car’s debut does the General show off its racing version. This is the Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R.
Chevrolet showed off its latest racing tribute to the Dead Milkmen and the gods of speed today, and it looks so good. The new Camaro GT4.R is based on the 2017 Camaro ZL1 road car, per IMSA, and it packs a gigantic 6.2-liter LT1 small block V8 engine that can roast tires on demand when the race is over.
Rally legend Michèle Mouton helped start the Race of Champions in 1988 to determine the best rally driver in the world, and it’s grown to include all kinds of racers. We should care about it, but it still feels overshadowed in the United States by the defunct International Race of Champions. Why? IROC had a car.
One of my favorite displays at auto shows are the engine cutaways. I love seeing how the parts move together and what does what. Imagine my delight when I saw this video of a working, 3D printed General Motors LS3 V8 engine.
I have always been a big fan of American cars, terrible handling and all. None of my friends who owned Audis, AMGs, Bimmers understood this affection. I didn’t care. It was a cheap way for me to enjoy gobs of torque, and the occasional fishtailing. (Plus, while I spent $30 for an oil change on my Ford they were…
Truly, we are living in an extraordinary time for nutjob junkyard engineering. As proof, look at this otherwise junky Malaise Era Camaro with a 6.0-liter LS V8 out of a truck with four turbos pulled off Ford Ecoboost engines. It is a monster.
I think the Dodge Viper (RIP) V10s, all versions of them, are some of the coolest engines ever made and nothing anybody can say will make me think otherwise. You can stick one in your lawnmower, or your 1968 Camaro, and you won’t hear a peep out of me.
Muscle car sales are declining, and for the first time in two years, the Chevrolet Camaro has outsold the Ford Mustang. The primary reason for this apparent bowtie takeover is ridiculous discounts on leftover 2016 model year Camaros as the 2017s come out. Now is a great time to get a new Camaro and save some money in…
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
The Chevy Camaro celebrates is 50th anniversary with the 2017 model year. In honor of that, GM just cracked open their time capsule and cut this reel of old Camaro footage over the ages. So, is that volcano real or...?
She was knitting when the brakes went out.
Tonight on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, we uncover the best kept secret of the post-nuclear-holocaust desert: Immortan Joe’s Citadel!
What do you mean this amazing weekend of racing is over and we have to go back to work now? Here’s this year’s Indy 500 Pace Car, the 50th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro SS.
Your rad Dodge Challenger Hellcat may lord it over the other modern American muscle cars in horsepower, but not when it comes to the small overlap test.
The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1's new 6.2-liter supercharged V8 doesn’t just sound good on paper. The latest footage of the ZL1 testing on the Nürburgring sounds unbelievably good even through the cheesiest phone speakers. (Plus, they kept it off a wall this time.) Find a good sound system and crank this engine note up to…
Sometimes when you’re behind the wheel of a potent American muscle car at high speeds on a track with walls super close to the asphalt, well... shit happens. Ask me how I know this! And the poor bastard behind the wheel of this 2017 Camaro Z/28 mule knows it now too, at the Nürburgring no less.
Do you like the sixth-generation Camaro? Have you always thought it could use a few more electrons in its powertrain? Probably not, but it’s good news anyway, we promise. GM is working with 16 colleges to help design a more environmentally-conscious Camaro, and one university’s plug-in hybrid system is looking highly…
If taking your new car out for a track day and risking a parts failure is too much of a headache for your wallet, ease up if it happens to be a V8 Chevrolet Camaro. That’s right—you can succumb to the temptation of the race track or drag strip, and parts failures will more than likely fall under warranty.
“Stop trying to make Pontiac happen,” I said to no one in particular at the New York Auto Show last week as I stood in front of the Trans Am SE Bandit Edition booth. “It’s not going to happen.” Then I learned that these garish last-generation Chevrolet Camaro conversions were signed off on, literally, by Burt Reynolds…
Sebring International Raceway’s Chateau Élan Hotel and Conference Center features sweeping views of the circuit itself, a lively bar right next to the action, and a parking lot to bust in to A-Team-style when you lose your brakes at the hairpin. We’re glad this Camaro driver knew where the track access road went.
