The immigration

New York (USA), 4. April 2013 – on the New York Auto Show (still up to 7. April 2013) Chevrolet introduces a particularly fleet version of the Camaro. The Americans have brought a name from the box: Z / 28. A short that was already used in 1967, then for a racing series.

Corvette engine

For the new model year, there are only smaller changes on the Camaro. At the front, the opening in the lower barbecue is gross, which, on the other hand, narrow. The Z / 28 preserves a rough spoiler lip and wider fuss flight. On the stern somewhat a discreet spoiler, a diffuser sits between the four tailpipes of the exhaust system.

Heartstuck of the Missed Camaro is the seven liter suction motor with eight cylinders known from the Corvette Z06. There he makes 512 hp, in the Z / 28 it is 507. The maximum torque amounts to 637 Nm, the force will transfer over a manual six-speed gearbox to the rear roller. A blocking differential and a traction management system should help to create best values on the racetrack. The first Z / 28 from the year made 1967 in 1967 294 hp – also from a V8.

Economical sports car: vw golf gt with dsg

Berlin, 07. May 2007 – The small pointer dances in its munzgroben round instrument. A kick on the gas. In a flash, it accelerates from left to right and shows us the prere build-up in the twin-turbocharged Golf GT. This boostmeter seems completely useless, but is really fun to drive.

Technically innovative

Since the Golf RGTI with its announced 300 hp is still in the stars and is a black study in California, the R32 with 250 hp and the GTI Edition 30 with 230 hp currently mark the top of the model range. The GT is the third in the group. It is far behind with its 170 hp, but the sensational thing is the displacement from which these 170 hp gallop out: 1.4 liters. The R32 needs almost 3.2 liters for its 250 hp, while the GTI can draw on just under two liters for its 230 hp (Edition 30) or 200 hp. The performance per liter – R32: 78 hp per liter, GTI: 116 hp per liter (Edition 30) or 101 hp per liter, GT: a crisp 122 hp per liter. The efficiency curve therefore rises rapidly with each model step downwards. A compressor and a turbocharger are responsible for it.

A Golf from the outside

The GT hides well in Golf garb. Only minimal clues give it away for fans, insiders and those who like to read short stories on cars. Because the "GT" lettering is wedged between the ribs of the front grille. Three rough openings for breathing are placed under it. Underneath the car, wide 17-inchers ensure contact with the road. At the rear, a twin tailpipe blows out the battered combustion preres. Otherwise everything on the Golf is Golf. Nevertheless, the youngsters in the McDonald’s parking lot immediately spot the GT badge.
