Cobalt SSizzles: 2008 Chevy Cobalt SS @ the Track
CHEVY COBALT SS @ INSIDELINE.COM:
We come to our first serious corner on Glendora Mountain Road, and the 2008
Chevrolet Cobalt SS Coupe delivers the unexpected. It turns into a tight
left-hander with the haste and hunger of an import sport compact. Perhaps
most surprising of all, it gives the impression of being happy to do it.
Instead of savoring the moment, we get back on the throttle. We hear the
euphoric sigh of the turbocharger,
followed by a throbbing Exhaust note
out the back. The sounds are distinct even to the distracted ear, and they
refuse to harmonize. It's an old-school touch in a car full of new-school
kit, and you realize there's quite a bit going on with the 2008 Chevrolet
It's an odd feeling, because with that familiar Chevy face and Pro
Stock-size rear wing, you wonder if you're getting behind the wheel of last
year's car. But give this 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Coupe an hour of your
time on a good road and it takes you somewhere completely different.
rEVOlutionized: 2008 Mitsubishi Evo X by Vishnu Performance
Improving the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X is no easy task. It hits
60 mph in 4.9 seconds and blasts through the quarter-mile in 13.6 seconds
at 101 mph.
It performs even more amazing feats when its steering wheel is turned.
Physics-defying electronics and magic all-wheel-drive torque distribution
help rotate this sport sedan about its axis with brilliant control and
consistency. It produces a 0.99g performance on the skid pad, and that's
enough grip to match the Dodge Viper and trounce no less than the Chevrolet
Corvette Z06 and Porsche 911 turbo.
In other words, the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is a lot of car for
But for another thousand bucks it can be a lot better. All it takes are a
few electronic modifications. That's where the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer
Evolution by Vishnu Performance systems comes in.
2008 Dodge Charger R/T vs. 2008 Pontiac G8 GT
Cars like the new 2008 Pontiac G8 GT and 2008 Dodge Charger R/T were once
supposed to be every American's birthright. Brawny, V8-powered, relatively
affordable rear-drive cruisers that can blow through a couple of big
Western states in an afternoon at 90 mph — their drivers staring at the
horizon through Ray-Bans, steering with one hand and smoking a Pall Mall
with the other.

buildings that front the massive desert test facility on the outskirts of

Chevy Cobalt SS come into play. They're not fancy, but they're quick and
they're affordable, adding up to something we can all enjoy: a cheap
