The most famous vehicular serpent returns to the road in 2013!  The Viper will once again grace highways and racetracks across the country, thanks to its reintroduction under the Street and Racing Technology (SRT) brand from the Chrysler Group, which focuses on delivering flagship performance.  The mid-engine Viper debuts an all-new aluminum 8.4 liter V-10 engine, delivering about 640 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque, which is the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports car engine in the world.  On the outside, the exterior has been modeled to evoke classic Viper styling with modern interpretation, while inside, the interior is designed to provide and comfort and an enhanced driver experience.  The SRT Viper will hit dealerships in 2013, with pre-orders beginning this November.

First Drive: 2013 Ford C-MAX Energi

Hybrids are old hat by now, and range anxiety proves that consumers aren’t quite ready to switch to pure electrics just yet.  That leaves a new middle ground for hybrid plug-ins, like the 2013 Ford C-MAX Energi.  A marriage between the best of both technologies, these vehicles plug in to charge, but when the electricity runs out, fall back on hybrid engines to keep the car running.  The C-MAX Energi has three driving modes: EV Now (electric only), EV Auto (electric/gasoline blend), or EV Later (gasoline only).  It achieves a combined fuel rating of 95 MPG-e (its sister, the C-MAX Hybrid, achieves 47 MPG).  Check out the 2013 Ford C-MAX Energi at the Show this year, and see how it stacks up against its strong plug-in hybrid competition, like the Chevy Volt and Toyota Prius Plug-In.

We celebrated a very special birthday at the 2012 Denver Auto Show!  We helped Karina throw a surprise 50th birthday party for her husband Mike, a long-time fan of the Denver Auto Show.  We were so excited to help Karina, Mike and their family and friends celebrate this special day.  There was food, drinks, cake and even a Lamborghini!  If you or someone you know would like to celebrate a special day in style at the Denver Auto Show, email Alexandria Pudney.  Happy birthday again to Mike, and we can’t wait to see you next year!

First Drive: 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish

Mr. Bond's other Aston.

2013 aston martin vanquish 02 The DB5 may be the most iconic vehicle in its history, but in a year  that brings the debut of the latest 007 adventure, Aston Martin also  ushers in a revival of the Vanquish.  The sleek head-turner made it's  first splash (literally) in 2002's Die Another Day (no, seriously --  remember the melting ice palace?), buoying it to the upper ranks of  movie cars.  The new Vanquish evolves from the DBS, with luxurious  inspiration from the the exclusive One-77.  The lavish attention to  detail on the interior (such as hand-stitched leather) is carried over to the mechanics under the hood (or "bonnet", as Bond would say).  Aston Martin's flagship V12 engine has been tweaked to deliver 565 bhp and 460 lb-ft of torque, resulting in 0-62 mph in 4.1  seconds and topping out at 183 mph.  Utilizing an updated Touchtronic 2 transmission that's shaken, not stirred, the Vanquish is only available as an automatic.  The Vanquish is set to conquer these shores next year, estimated at around $300,000.  In the meantime, pay homage to 007 in November's Skyfall, and check out the current Aston Martin lineup at the 2013 Denver Auto Show!
