For $54,995 you can drive off in a Chevy Camaro ZL1 that will get to 60 mph in 3.9 sec (automatic) or 4.0 sec (manual). It will tear through the quarter-mile in as little as 12.0 to 12.1 sec at 119 mph. That would be on the way to a 180 to 184 mph top speed.

Aston Martin V12 Zagato attacks the ‘Ring.
Even though a large Supra-esque rear wing and a more aggressive chin spoiler and side skirts appeared on the Scion FR-S prototype in the latter stages of testing at the Nürburgring, the disguised production car still looks tame compared to the stunning FR-S concept by Five Axis.

The LFA’s front-mid-mounted V-10 is already a tightly coiled snake of an engine, ready to strike with 552 bhp generated near its 9000-rpm redline.

Plans for the Venom GT include test sessions at the Nürburgring in the summer of 2011, with Hennessey hoping to ultimately break the 7-minute barrier. Can the Venom GT do it?
