Which one of these powerful cars has been eating their spinach lately? Check them all out and decide for yourself at the Auto Show!
Chevrolet Camaro: Highly customizable, the Camaro is offered in a variety of packages based on the focus of the buyer. The road-racing-inspired 1LE model has been updated for 2013 with track-ready features. All SS models now offer variable-effort electric power steering and a dual-mode exhaust system, both of which were introduced on the Camaro ZL1.
Chevrolet Camaro ZL1: Now available as a convertible for those who desire a highway blowout, this supercharged Camaro achieves 580-horsepower. Billed as an “everyday supercar,” it boasts 0-60 mph in four seconds, a top speed of 184 mph, and it lapped the Nürburgring in 7:41.27. The ZL1 name is derived from the all-aluminum racing engine of the same name, which was developed and installed into a handful of regular-production Camaros (69 total) in 1969.
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: The fastest production model ever offered by General Motors, with a top speed of 205 mph, the ZR1 is the ultimate expression of Corvette’s technology-driven performance legacy. Even more exciting than its production specs is the fact that customers who opt for the Corvette Engine Build Experience can participate in the assembly of their engine at the General Motors Performance Build Center in Wixom, Michigan.
Dodge Charger: The Charger is efficient and smooth; paired with the award-winning 292 horsepower 3.6-liter aluminum Pentastar V-6 engine, new models with eight-speed automatic transmission deliver refinement, improved performance and best-in-class 31 mpg (highway). That transmission debuted on the Charger in 2012, and was the first of its kind among domestic sport sedans.
Dodge Challenger: Delivering an impressive 27 mpg (highway) for its 305-375 horsepower, the Challenger’s 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine is legendary. The iconic muscle car offers unique exterior personalization, and three specifically engineered suspension and wheel and tire combinations: sport-tuned, performance-tuned, and Super Track Pak. This detailed architecture results in impressive ride and handling, and braking performance.
Ford Mustang: One awesome new feature for 2013 is a 4.2-inch LCD screen loaded with Track Apps, which enable the driver to monitor performance measures such as g-forces and shows acceleration and braking times. Additionally, the Ford SYNC connectivity system now comes standard on the Mustang Boss 302.
