#sideshotsaturday with the nose job. Not easy and not perfect, but it turned out pretty well in my opinion. This shot does a good job showing why I insisted on getting not the all black version but the one with the brushed aluminum frame. It highlights the rest of the car’s brushed aluminum trim so well. I think it looks especially good against Daytona Gray PE. Is this the first B9 Daytona with alu trim RS style grille on the Gram???
Final C7 Corvette 😭🇺🇸 ______________________________________ [4/13/19] The C8 is coming on July 18th and now we officially know the C7 will not be built alongside the next generation and path of the Corvette ethos, the 2020 Corvette.. This may also mark the death of the front engined corvette which has been the style since 1953 but not without it nearly becoming a mid engined car a few times before! We say “maybe” because all GM announcer was the C7 is ending, not necessarily front engined corvettes.. (maybe just maybe there will be Two lines of corvettes!) 🔥 @Allcarnews Spec Sheet: The Z06 is powered by a 6.2L Supercharged V8 making 650HP and 650 lb-ft of torque. 🔥 This final C7 will be auctioned off at Barrett Jackson on June 28th meaning that the C7 line is ending soon as the C8 begins production for later this year! I’m sure this C7 will go for A LOT of money as it’s owner (might) be able to say that he has the last front engined corvette. All the proceeds of the corvette money will go to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. Also there is a massive 232 day supply of C7’s on dealer lots which is around 9,000 unsold cars for the Corvette. ________________________________________ ACN EXTRA: What do you think will happen? Will there be two lines of Corvettes? 🤔 ________________________________________ - - #Chevy#Corvette#USA#overheating#US#murica#ZR1#z06#trackcar#C7#C8#drive#carbon||#powerful#performance#turbocharged#supercharged#advanced#SupercarsRevamped#Supercar#HyperCar#ItsWhiteNoise#CarLifeStyle#MadWhips#CupGang#Carstagram#BlackList#AmazingCars247 An #allcarnews posted
Jay Leno always says, ‘Germany was the birthplace of the automobile, but France was the nursery’. This was also true for sporting cars, with some of the most iconic names like Bugatti, Delahaye and Talbot-Lago coming from the European nation. However, by the 1970s the industry was all but dried up... until Venturi came along that was. With financial backing, former Heuliez engineers Gérard Godfroy and Claude Poiraud formed MVS (Manufacture de Voitures de Sport - ‘Manufacturer of Sports Cars’) in 1984 with the goal of producing a grand tourer rivalling Aston Martin, Ferrari and Porsche. Their first car - the ‘MVS Venturi 200’ - arrived soon after, combining 200 horsepower, a lightweight fibreglass body and a rigid steel chassis. Production began in 1987, and just over 200 were produced until 1990. By the next decade, the company’s majority stake had been sold and the ‘MVS’ name was dropped in favour of Venturi. The more powerful 2.8-litre V6 had also been introduced, which shot power up to 261 horsepower. This new car was called the Venturi 260 and received good press during the day. Its performance was on par with the Alpine A610 and the Lotus Esprit SE, and although it did succumb to several raids of fellow manufacturers’ parts bins, build quality and usability were high. Over the next few years, Venturi expanded into racing and started their own FIA one-make series dubbed the ‘Gentleman Drivers Trophy’, which would support racing events around the globe. 73 of these ‘Trophy’ cars were produced, but Venturi also produced a dedicated road-going variant. Called the ‘400 GT’, this car took on a similar platform and configuration from the earlier Venturi cars but looked radically different. Gone was the swooping bodywork in favour of Ferrari F40-esque wide fenders, air vents and rear spoiler. The wheelbase was lengthened by 100mm and the PRV V6 engine tuned with dual turbochargers and intercoolers to 402bhp at 0.95 bar. The car also shed 100 kg with a stripped out interior and carbon brake discs - it was the first production car to feature these, in fact. Between 1994 and 1996, only 15 examples were produced.
