2016 Chevrolet Camaro Unveiled, is Leaner and Packs More Horses

The sixth-generation Camaro has finally been unveiled on Saturday and as we all know, it is kind of a big deal for Chevrolet because it is a Camaro. The new generation fastback muscle car is said to offer a more nimble driving experience, attributed by an all-new, lighter architecture and of course, a broader powertrain range. That said, we will never understand the rationale of offering a wide engine range. I mean. It is a Camaro for goodness sake. It is supposed to perform and as such why do you need an entry-level 2.0L turbo unit? Not that 275 horse and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) coming from the 2.0L unit is anything shabby, but it is pretty pale when compared to the 3.6 V6 powertrain which delivers 335 hp and 284 lb-ft (385 Nm) of torque and the range-topping 6.2L V8 of the Camaro SS that pumps out 455 horses and 455 lb-ft (617 Nm) of torque.

Texas-based Bloodshed Motors Turns a Classic 1968 Mustang into a 800HP Silent Monster

What are the odds of an American Muscle car lover who is also an electric car lover? That would constitutes too a tiny population in the U.S. of which you will probably find them in Texas where Mitch Medford’s Bloodshed Motors does the business of converting classic cars into octane-charged high-speed electric machines that will give most supercars a run for their money and without the harmful emission. Leading by example, Mitch has converted a 68’ Mustang into a monster vehicle, which he calls Zombie 222, producing over 800 ponies and a mind-blowing 1,800 lb-ft of torque (2,438 Nm!).
