Best Used Muscle Cars You Can Buy

Having a car is one of the most crucial aspects in this modern and fast-pacing world. Not having one means being unable to do a great number of things. Like driving around obviously. Or at least, not being able to find a girlfriend. It is not a secret that everyone prefers getting a sleek, brand-new, untouched car and to be the first one to try, feel, and tame its power. Yet, very often, the desire for something new is not being satisfied. Why? Because prices are too high and that specific and so-much-wanted car is just not affordable, apart as an image on your laptop’s desktop. In situations like this, services which offer reliable vehicles and not so bank-account-emptying prices come to the rescue. For instance, there is a wide collection of used cars on Hertz Rent2Buy.

Wheelsandmore 1961 Chevrolet Corvette C1 FrontTwo stunning beauties for sale, which have been refined very expensive, in very high quality and with great attention to detail. Both cars are complete rebuilds without mileage, inside and out – technically and visually new.

Candidate 1:

Chevrolet Corvette C1 1961 in a two-tone metallic paint. In a subtle grey, the combination with the GMC Red effect is strictly made for the vehicle. The interior is based on the vehicle exterior color, is naturally processed just as high quality and provides, together with the black fabric hood, an excellent transition. The heart of this dream car, a 5,7l-V8 LS1 with 385PS / 550Nm from the Corvette C5 and a stainless steel exhaust system from Magnaflow, provide enormous propulsion. Delaying by Porsche-Brembo brake system, designed for the most technical claims, it‘s also visually pleasing to the eye. With a coilover suspension by QA1 and opulent 20 inch-wheels from Breyton, the overall picture is rounded off very consistent.

Chevy's Corvette-Powered Camaro Storms the NurburgringChevrolet has hit upon the novel idea of using a little known area of challenging forest draped with intermittent terror and tarmac called ‘Nurburgring’ to test the capability of its new Camaro Z/28. It posted a lap time. It was quite fast.

How fast? 7m 37.47s. In isolation, that sounds incredibly slow, considering the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 boasts a 505bhp, 470lb ft 7.0-litre V8 – the same one you’ll find in the Corvette Z06 – tinkered by Corvette Racing. All this power is marshaled through a six-speed manual gearbox to the 19in rear wheels in a torrent of sweaty-palmed fury. But then do bear in mind this ‘Nurburgring’ is around 13 miles long.
