They used to be considered a secret tip: powerful Muscle-Cars from the USA, driven by high-performance V8-engines with more than 400 HP at insanely low prices. Today, the former secret has become a true scene. Corvette, Camaro and Mustang are now running at eye level with Porsche and friends. The processing quality has improved, chassis technology has turned more modern and even the high-performance engines are much more drivable than they used to be. One thing has stayed the same: they are comparatively low-priced!

We’ve seen our fair share of chromed cars – everything from an Audi R8 V10 to a Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster – but here’s something American – a real muscle car.
Talk about a flashy Camaro, literally! Vinyl wraps have been all the rage in the aftermarket, allowing car owners to change up their car’s color completely and unlimited times, but also 100% reversible. The Czech guys from Tintek.cz – specialist in wrapping sports cars – are back with a new chrome vinyl. They outfitted the vinyl to a Chevrolet Camaro SS and an Audi TT.
Tintek says the Camaro is the first chrome application of this kind in the Czech Republic, as the effect is not obtained by painting the car but by applying a special 3-D foil over the original paintwork. They also offer the chrome effect in gold, black, green, blue, orange, red and violet. This is what I call an original tuning project! Check out the video on Read more!
The chase is on, this November. In the second part of November, the world of racing games as we know it will change. At least this is the promise made by EA and Criterion Games when it comes to the release of the latest Need for Speed title, perhaps the most anticipated in years, Hot Pursuit.
Until the game arrives in stores though, EA thought to taunt us some more with the extraordinary cars which will be featured in the game. Enter a new promo video, this time for real: real cars, real road, real people.
And not just your everyday people. EA and Criterion called upon British grime music band Roll Deep and the man formerly known as the Stig, Ben Collins, for a little chase-me-down the street gimmick.
The video is just a teaser to a complete chase between a pair of Lambos Porsche 911 GT3s. How it all worked out we’ll see on November 8th.
Hot Pursuit, a revival of the successful original title, will introduce a whole new feature for online play, called Need for Speed Autolog. Through Autolog, players can compare racing stats and automatically get personalized gameplay recommendations.
It features pretty much all the cars which represent something in today’s world, including Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, Ford Shelby GT500, Audi TT RS Coupe, Chevrolet Camaro SS, Porsche Cayman S and Dodge Challenger SRT8. The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione and Ford Shelby GT500 will only be available in the Limited Edition version of the game.
The game will be released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii.

LS9-Powered Camaro Goes Topless
New 2011 Hennessey HPE700 Camaro Gets Convertible Option and 755 Horsepower
SEALY, TEXAS – With the limited production run of Hennessey’s 2010 HPE700 Camaro long since sold-out, the company has announced they will build another 24 units for the 2011 model year. This latest run of HPE700′s will include the addition of the new convertible model (from Chevrolet) and an increase in power from its supercharged 6.2L LS9 V8 – the same engine found in the Corvette ZR1.
The 2011 HPE700 gets its additional power from revised boost levels and a more robust fuel system, delivering 755 bhp and 763 lb-ft of torque. This 30 horsepower increase over 2010 will also help move the convertible’s extra weight, while the large 15 inch brakes from last year remain to bring it back to a stop quickly.
As the Camaro convertible arrives in showrooms in the spring of 2011, the 6-speed manual SS model will become available alongside its hardtop brethren to become the basis for the HPE700 LS9 Camaro transformation. Read more!
