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.

Ford Shelby GT500 v Hennessey Camaro:
Hennessey HPE550 Supercharged Chevy Camaro SS:
We're looking at the 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR and 2008 Chevrolet Corvette
Z06, but we're imagining a '68 Shelby GT500KR staging next to a Corvette
with one of the 427-cubic-inch V8s on the Connecting Highway in Queens, New
York, probably sometime during the Nixon administration. We don't know how
the cars are tuned or which driver has the better hole-shot technique, but
we're calling our street race in favor of the Vette.
You see, there's no historical basis for a close Corvette-Mustang rivalry. A Corvette of any
year is a little too fast and smart to be street racing ratty muscle cars.
It's a real sports car, the kind of car that's still fun when you start
going around corners.
But maybe it's a different story with this 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR and
2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Each of these rear-wheel-drive coupes has a V8
rated for more than 500 horsepower at the flywheel.
And with the release of the limited-edition 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR, Ford
has moved in on Chevrolet's price territory. The GT500KR leaves the Ford
factory as a $46,730 GT500 coupe and is shipped as a rolling chassis to
Carroll Shelby's facility near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Nevada. By
the time the KR cruises out of Shelby's shop, it's an $82,395 Mustang.
As such, the King-of-the-Road Mustang must now contend with this
$76,920 2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. And though the Z06 is a few horsepower shy of the
upcoming ZR1, it's not an easy mark. The GT500KR will have to play like a
sports car just to keep up.
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.
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.
2014 Audi RS5 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 507 Coupe! - Head 2 Head Ep. 51
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman sets out to discover which
German hot-rod-personal-luxury-coupe is the best you can get. The 507 Coupe
is the last iteration of the W204 C63. With the exception of the very
limited-run Black Series, it's the best C63 that AMG has ever done. Under
its hood sits a hand-built, 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V-8 good for 507
more do you want? Perhaps something more high-tech, and that's where the
Audi RS5 comes in. The sexy coupe from Quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm features
a 4.2-liter V-8 that spits out 450 hp. That¹s less power than the 507
Coupe makes, true, but the Audi also features AWD, a dual-clutch
transmission, bigger wheels and tires, plus a trick torque-vectoring rear
differential. Which one is quicker? Which one is more fun to drive? Which
one is best? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
