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 […]

2012 Detroit Motor Show photo gallery

Here we have a selection of images from the floor of the Detroit Motor Show, or more correctly, the North American International Auto Show. Unlike Tokyo late last year there’s a noticeable lack of weird and wonderful concept creations, but we certainly applaud the appearance of the Honda NSX Concept. It’s easily the clear star […]

Chevrolet Miray heading to Frankfurt
