The 2012 Cheverolet Camaro ZL1

Wow. The all new Cheverolet Camaro ZL1, boasting a supercharged 6.2l LSA engine producing 580hp and about 556lb feet of torque. This car will produce some serious numbers on the track. There are subtle changes from the exterior of the current SS, in order to not make the car look over the top. Changes include bigger front facia grill, different fog lamps, hood air intakes, different wheels, and a slightly different rear(spoiler, exhaust). I also believe a different steering wheel is also available. I'm going to keep this short, but also wanted to mention that stopping power will be provided by Brembo Brakes, and the car will come equipped with Eagle F1 tires. An electro-magnetic ride control will allow this new Camaro to feel at home, whether on the track or in the streets, adapting to anything thrown its way. It will be available Spring 2012, but it will be hard to find with its low $50,000 price tag.

The all new Audi A7. With the current 3.0 liter V6, it will get you to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds. Not to mention when the S7 and RS7 are released, that time will be much quicker. The six-speed manual will be available for the A7 as well as an 8 speed automatic. On the other hand, the higher spec models (S7 and RS7) will offer a seven speed dual clutch transmission that will help control the 600hp that the RS7 will most likely produce. The daytime running lights are at the top of my favorites list for this car, as well as the sporty tail. The shoulder flares run smoothly to the rear of the car creating a revolutionary luxurious yet sporty look. This higher end Audi also has a reasonable price-tag starting around 65g, which is not too bad considering all this car has to offer. The S7 and RS7 will definitely provide some competition for the Porsche Panamera S and Panamera Turbo as well as the all new CLS550 and CLS63 AMG, which are all beautiful cars by the way. I suspect Audi will have a bright future with the sales of their all new Audi A7 line.
