Name the Emerald 2015 Special Edition Camaro SS
by Robert Nimocks
GM has an opportunity for the public to name a special edition Camaro before its debut at the 2014 SEMA show in Las Vegas. This is a rarely offered chance for you to have your ideal name presented to the public on a future collector edition vehicle. Chevy is taking suggestions for the name now through the Camaro's Facebook page and on Twitter at the @Chevrolet account by using the hashtag #NameThatCamaro.
The special edition SS Camaro will be offered in a unique Emerald Green metallic with Cyber Gray rally stripes. The car will be offered in coupe and convertible form with the SS trim and a choice of either a six-speed automatic with 400 hp and 410 ft-lbs or a six-speed manual with a 6.2-liter V8 rated at 426 horsepower and 420 ft-lbs. In addition to the SS package the Camaro comes with a ground effects package and the ZL1 rear spoiler, it will also have the RS Appearance Package with high-intensity discharge headlights. The Emerald Green paint and gray rally stripes will be set off with a special set of 21-inch Chrome Dusk wheels to add to the unique package. The interior will feature a black interior with Graphite Silver door panel and instrument panel inserts. A black top will be included with convertible models.
Optional content will include a sunroof, dual-mode exhaust (except export models), navigation radio and Chevrolet Performance short-throw shifter.
2015 Henessey Mustang Delivers 717HP
by Robert Nimocks
We just learned how great the new 2015 Corvette Z06 is with an impressive 0-60 time of 2.95 seconds. Over at the Mopar camp the Dodge Charger (and Challenger) Hellcat with its 707hp hemi beat the much lighter Corvette with a 0-60 time of 2.9 seconds. We certainly know once you leave the drag strip and head to a road course or nearest canyon road, the 2015 Corvette Z06 will vaporize the Hellcat with its skidpad rating of 1.2g. One of the big three players is still missing in the group, but what can Ford lovers do while waiting for the rumored GT350 Shelby Mustang? Stepping up to the plate once again is Hennessey who has made a point to supercharge and tune more varieties of new cars than any other shop. continued...

2015 Corvette Z06 Pricing and Value
by Robert Nimocks
For 2015 the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is the most powerful production car ever produced from General Motors. The 2015 Z06 has a base price of $78,995, the convertible's base price is $83,995. While that may not be affordable for many, it is definetly a deal over its competitors.
The Corvette has often been compared to the pride of Germany, the Porsche 911. The most powerful 911 is the Turbo S rated at 560 hp and 516 lb-ft and costs $182,000, while the Z06 costs less than half and is rated at 650 hp and 650 lb-ft. Now that sounds like a value there.
Here is a chart for comparison, when we get complete road tests results, we'll add skidpad rating to the chart. While the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is the best HP/Dollar value, it can't compete on a road course and we wanted to add for those looking for Raw Horsepower.
|Chevrolet Corvette Z06||78,995||650|
|Audi R8 V10||173,500||550|
|Dodge Challenger Hellcat (not a track car)||59,995||707|
|Ferrari 458 Italia||233,509||507|
|Ford GT (2005)||150,000||550|
|Porsche 911 Turbo S||182,700||560|
|Porsche Cayman GTS||75,200||340|
