Classics Of The Future
Chevrolet Corvette Z06, 2005
Corvette Z06 The most noticeable feature of the sixth-generation of America’s star-spangled sports car were its headlights, under plastic fairings rather than of the pop-up variety. The ultra-high-performance Z06 had a lightweight alloy chassis, and the hand-built V8 engine was both the biggest-capacity Chevrolet small-block ever and, at 505bhp, the most powerful non-turbo engine ever seen in a car from General Motors.
|7,011 cc, V8
|207 mph (332 km/h)
Carbonfibre and balsa wood were among the lightweight materials in the Z06 edition of the Corvette C6; it could sprint from 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.6 seconds
Chevrolet Camaro, 2010
Chevrolet Camaro The first Camaro appeared in 1967 as Chevrolet mounted a credible rival to the best-selling, sporty Ford Mustang. This 2010 model aimed to recapture much of the appeal and aura of the original, both in terms of compact good looks and surging performance. The car shared its basic platform with several Holden models from GM’s Australian division, and in 2011 it was joined by a convertible. In the same year, the Camaro began to be widely exported.
|6,162 cc, V8
|155 mph (250 km/h)
The macho new Camaro was available with either six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission, the latter with 20 bhp less from the 6.2-liter V8 engine.
