Back to the future as Chevy produces standalone SS

Feb
28

It was more than fitting that the new 2014 Chevrolet SS got its first major outing at Daytona recently. The production model of the company’s latest muscle car may only have been on the infield this time but the first real-wheel drive performance sedan to be released by the company since 1996 is as exciting for some people as the high-octane racing on the oval, where the Nascar Sprint Cup version was making its debut.

Indeed, it was some debut for the Chevy SS – after the new production model paced the racecars at the start, Jimmie Johnson followed up by bringing his Nascar Super Sport over the line for victory in the main event.

Corvette Marks 60 Years of Performance with 427 Convertible - Muscle Cars BlogCorvette Marks 60 Years of Performance with 427 Convertible

DETROIT – Chevrolet today unveiled the 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition – the fastest, most capable convertible in Corvette’s history – as well as a 60th Anniversary Package that will be available on all 2013 Corvette models.

“The 2013 model year will be historic for Corvette, marking its 60th Anniversary and the final year for the current ‘C6′ generation,” said Chris Perry, vice president, Global Marketing and Strategy for Chevrolet. “We couldn’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate these milestones than bringing back one of the most-coveted combinations in the brand’s history – the Corvette convertible and a 427 cubic-inch engine.”

The 60th Anniversary Package and 427 Convertible will make their public debut at the Barrett Jackson collector car auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Jan 21, and will arrive at U.S. Chevrolet dealers early this summer.

Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition
The Corvette 427 Convertible blends elements of the Z06 and ZR1 models to create the fastest and most-capable convertible in Corvette’s history.

Its heart is the 427-cubic-inch (7.0L) LS7 engine from the Corvette Z06. Rated at 505 horsepower (377 kW) and 470 lb.-ft. of torque (637 Nm), it is the most powerful engine ever installed in a production Corvette convertible – and, like the Z06, the 427 Convertible is only available with a six-speed manual transmission.

The LS7 was co-developed with the Corvette Le Mans-winning GT1 engine and features lightweight titanium connecting rods and intake valves, as well as racing-inspired high-flow cylinder heads and a dry-sump oiling system. It is assembled by hand at GM’s Performance Build Center, where customers who purchase the 427 Convertible Collector Edition can purchase the Corvette Build Experience option and assemble the engine that will power their new car. Read more!

Find great gifts for the Chevy fan in your life at Chevysupersport.com - Muscle Cars BlogHello, guys! It’s been a while since the last time I posted, but I really want to share some cool stuff with you. To be honest, I was looking for a nice muscle car-themed wall clock for my new place and a friend of mine told me about Chevysupersport.com. Along with the extensive selection of Chevy SS Muscle car parts and accessories, I saw the Chevy Apparel and Gifts section, where I stumbled upon some very cool Chevrolet themed t-shirts, caps and … wall clocks!

That was the time when my curiosity prevailed. I browsed that section and really loved the Chevy SS racing t-shirts and the Chevrolet Legends t-shirt. The last one was featuring the Chevelle SS, Nova SS and the Z28 Camaro iconic muscle cars on the back. These products are made of 100% high quality cotton with a silk-screen design. Actually, I still regret not buying this one…

I took a look at the caps – there was some really nice and stylish designs such as the Chevy SS low profile cap, which has SS Super Sport embroidery on the crown, Bowtie on the lip and Super Sport on the Velcro closure adjustable strap. Top quality products, which would make any muscle cars enthusiast extremely happy.

But then I saw it, I found exactly what I wanted – a stylish Chevrolet wall clock, which was even glowing in yellow neon light. “That’s it!”, I thought and right before placing the order, the doorbell rang. It was my girlfriend bringing a box. “Happy Thanksgiving Day!”, she said and gave me the box… It was a heck of a surprise to figure out she gave me the very same Chevrolet wall clock as the one featured on Chevroletsupersport.com. Trust me, there was no one happier than me! As it turned out, she knew what I was looking for and luckily for me, bought it before I did.

So, Christmas time is coming and now I know where to find some great gifts for any Chevy fan - Chevysupersport.com

1969 Camaro Named Best Chevy of All Time

1969 Camaro Named Best Chevy of All Time - Muscle Cars BlogNearly 125,000 Chevrolet fans have spoken, naming the 1969 Camaro the “Best Chevy of All Time.”

As part of Chevrolet’s Centennial celebration, fans were asked to vote for their favorite vehicle from Chevrolet’s 100-year history. During the four-round, elimination bracket, the 1969 Camaro garnered 25,058 of the 124,368 votes cast, edging out the 1970 Chevelle SS in the final round.

Tom Peters, Chevrolet Design director, believes the ’69 Camaro is not only one of the best vehicles in Chevrolet’s history but one of the best vehicles ever. He is a little biased, however, having owned the same 1969 Camaro for nearly 20 years.

“I can vividly remember seeing one for the first time as a kid,” Peters said. “The intent of the Camaro was instantly understood, even to a 14-year old like me, because it possessed a very powerful personality and an elegant, simple design. The Camaro was so cool because it offered this great style, high performance, and yet was attainable for someone just getting out of school. Read more!

Head Games: 2012 Chevy Camaro Adds Power, Saves Fuel

Head Games: 2012 Chevy Camaro Adds Power, Saves Fuel - Muscle Cars BlogNew cylinder head design combines key parts into single aluminum casting

PONTIAC, Mich. – In auto production, more power, better fuel economy and fewer emissions rarely appear together. But the 2012 Camaro 3.6L direct injection V6 engine achieves all three by combining the exhaust manifold with the cylinder head into a single aluminum casting.

Each integrated exhaust manifold cylinder head – a V6 has two — replaces a cast iron exhaust manifold, six bolts, a gasket and a heat shield and three bolts. By eliminating this joint, the potential for a gasket failure is eliminated. And the change reduces engine weight by 13 lbs. or 6 kg per engine. Reducing mass helps improve fuel economy and the 2012 Camaro 2LS model is EPA estimated at 30 mpg highway. Read more!
