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.

Two 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.
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.
Chevrolet 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.
Chevrolet has received a total of four 2014 AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards. This means that for 2014 the company has the most won awards when compared to other single vehicle manufacturers. The customer’s satisfaction has been measured in 50 categories. The vehicles which have received the top-honors inn their segment are: the Impala in the Large Car segment, the Sonic – in the Economy car segment, the Corvette, being the best Sports car and at last but not least – the Camaro rated as the top Sporty car.
The wins move Chevrolet up five spaces in relative ranking among other manufacturers compared to last year. Today’s company car lineup is the best in the brand’s history. It has the design, performance, technology and safety that absolutely corresponds to consumers expectations. The proof for this is these four awards, which also show that Chevrolet has focused on offering the best possible experience for the consumer.
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has been rated at 650 horsepower, which means that it is the most powerful production car that General Motors have ever produced. It is powered by the Supercharged LT4 V-8 engine that has been SAE-certified at 650 horsepower (485 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 650 lb-ft of torque (881 Nm) at 3,600 rpm. In fact, the new Z06 engine delivers 40 percent more peak torque (180 lb-ft / 244 Nm) than the previous-generation’s 7.0L LS7; as well as 7.5 percent more than the supercharged 2013 Corvette ZR1′s 604 lb-ft (819 Nm).
At 3,200 rpm, the new LT4 surpasses the LS7 by 208 lb-ft of torque (252 Nm). On the horsepower side of the graph, the LT4′s 650-hp rating is 29 percent greater than the LS7′s 505 horsepower (376 kW), and 12 horses more than the ZR1′s LS9 engine.
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Atlantic Convertible and Pacific Coupe debuted at first as concept vehicles at the SEMA show last year. Now, the design packages are prepared to enhance the production 2015 Stingray, due to a strong response from enthusiasts. Both versions are to be offered onto the Z51-equipped convertibles, and will be available in the 2LT or 3LT trims.
The package in the luxury GT-focused Atlantic Convertible includes front Z06-style splitter; Shark Gray exterior vents, hood “stinger” graphic and tonneau inserts; Chrome Torque wheels with Stingray center caps; Stingray underhood liner and floor mats; custom splash guards, rear license plate frame and logo valve stem caps and custom luggage.
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible was just introduced. Like its coupe sibling it delivers 625 horsepower (466 kW) and 861 Nm (635 lb-ft) of torque, making it the most powerful convertible ever produced by Chevrolet. The car is built on an aluminum structure, which is 20 percent stiffer than the previous. Its curb weight is nearly identical to the Z06 coupe. Both cars share the same chassis tuning, powertrain output, driver technologies and equipment options, including the Z07 Performance Package. The latter adds Brembo carbon-ceramic matrix brakes, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires and adjustable front- and rear-aerodynamic components.
Corvette Z06 Convertible features an electronic top that can be lowered remotely via key fob. The top can also open or close on the go, at speeds of up to 30 mph (50 km/h). The thick fabric top is offered in four colors along with sound-absorbing padding and a glass rear window. Behind the seat backs there are dual accent panels in either Carbon Flash-painted or with exposed carbon fiber.
Hennessey Performance will unveil its most powerful Corvette Stingray built up to date at the Boca Raton Concours in south Florida on 21st of February. At the heart of Hennessey Chevrolet Corvette Stingray HPE700 Twin Turbo is its twin turbo system that uses a pair of precision ball bearing 62-mm turbochargers producing 7 psi of boost pressure.
The HPE system has been handcrafted and uses mandrel-bent stainless steel tubing and dual turbo wastegates. Twin blow-off valves on the intercooler’s TIG-welded aluminum plenum are also present.
