VIDEO: Chevrolet SS Pace Car lights my fire

The 2014 NASCAR season has begun with the bizarre sight of the Chevrolet SS (née Commodore SS) Pace Car catching fire while it was leading the field around Daytona International Raceway. “Tower, we’re on fire,” came the confirmation from Brett Bodine behind the wheel of the flaming Pace Car. Feeling a bit sorry for the […]

Chevrolet gives V8 Commodore SS hope post-2017

According to the motoring.com.au website the V8-powered VF Commodore SS may have a life beyond the closure of Holden’s local production operations in 2017: Holden fans will still have the chance to drive a rear-wheel drive V8 sedan with the Lion badge on the nose after the death of the VF Commodore in 2017 if […]

Detroit 2014: Chevrolet Corvette C7.R

Those good ol’ boys at Chevrolet didn’t just stop with the road going version of the Corvette Z06. No siree, they kept the pedal to the metal and developed this all-new C7.R racecar. And when Corvette goes racing you better stop and take notice because they do it bloody well. Since 1999 they’ve dominated the […]

Detroit 2014: Chevrolet Corvette Z06

This is the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and with “at least 625 horsepower (466kW)” from its 6.2 litre supercharged V8 it’s sure to be as fast as it looks. Known as the LT4, the new 6.2 litre engine has plenty of torque to go with all that power too. 860Nm+ of it! This thing will […]

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 leaked

Last year it was the regular old Stingray which got us excited, now it’s the all-new Z06. Go on, admit it, this looks pretty bloody awesome! Three images have been leaked (first by Left Lane News, then Jalopnik) ahead of its debut in Detroit next week, as you’d expect. For now, at least, details of […]

Chevrolet Camaro Z28 laps Nürburgring in 7:37

The Americans are again keen to prove they have discovered corners by continuing to test their automotive products at the Nürburgring. And it turns out they’re getting quite good at making cars handle well, as this video from Chevrolet shows. The 2014 Camaro Z28 has lapped the Nordshcleife in 7:37.47 and we have the visual […]

I love the sound of V8s in the morning!

It’s true we don’t always give a lot of focus to American cars on AUSmotive. It’s also true that there’s not many better sounds in the automotive world than a kick arse V8 at full noise. So when you have not one, but two of Amercia’s finest treading the tarmac theatre of the Nürburgring we […]

Detroit 2013: Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

An American car featured on AUSmotive; what’s going on?! But it’s a Stingray! Truth be told, we knew those interested in the new C7 Corvette would have already read up on it and figured it wouldn’t be worth running. But when we looked a bit closer and saw those, let’s face it, pretty stupid centre-mount […]

VIDEO: Oh deer!

Here is a pretty nasty video of a chap called James Greenwood killing Bambi in his Crovette Z06 at a track day in West Virginia. Neither of them had a chance really. The clip itself is not over the top with Bambi’s blood and guts, but if you’re the queasy type we suggest don’t take […]
