And to celebrate this centennial anniversary; Chevy has released a Special Edition Vehicle to commemorate this milestone. The 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Centennial Edition is one mean looking sports car that is sure to become a collector's item. The Corvette Z06 has a base price of $75,600 and the Centennial Special Edition Package adds $4950 to that total. The vehicle tested here also benefits from the Z06 Ultimate Performance Package which adds another $7500 onto the base price. The Corvette Centennial Special Edition features a cool appearance package along with special edition wheels and a Magnetic Selective Ride Control suspension. The first thing you notice on the exterior of the Corvette Centennial is the sexy Carbon Flash Metallic paint job. The Satin Black rims come with a great red accent stripe and are sized 19-inches up front and 20-inches in the rear. The tires are high-performance Michelin PS CUP Z-Rated tires. These bad boys measure 335/25ZR20 in the rear which provides a huge contact patch. The Magnetic Selective Ride Control Suspension comes equipped with a set of shocks that are filled with a magnetically active fluid that changes in viscosity to provide a firm or softer ride depending on the driving situation. Another great addition to the 2012 Chevy Corvette Centennial Z06 Special Edition is the massive Brembo Carbon Ceramic Brakes that come with Special Edition pained Calipers. The 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Centennial is powered by a huge 7.0 liter (427 cubic inch) V-8 engine that produces 505 horsepower and 470 lb-ft. of torque. Power is transferred to the rear wheels through an awesome 6-speed manual transmission. Fuel economy is not bad considering the power.

The Corvette Z06 also has a top speed of 198 MPH. On the inside the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Centennial is both sporty yet comfortable. The seats are very supportive and feature nice suede inserts.

2012 Nissan 370Z Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/nissan/370z/2012/?id=32972 The Nissan Z Car has been around since the early 1970's under the Datsun name. For year the Z has been one of the most beloved affordable sports cars both here in the United States and in Japan as well. The 2012 Nissan 370Z is considered the Mustang of Japan since the drive train configuration, price, and body style is similar to that of many American muscle cars. The 2012 Nissan 370Z has a base price of $31,910 with the top of the line Touring Roadster costing over $44,000. The 2012 Nissan 370Z is powered by one of the best engines every produced by Nissan. The VQ37VHR is a 3.7 liter V-6 engine with Variable Valve Timing that produces 332 horsepower and 270 lb-ft. of torque. A 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic transmission puts the power down to the rear wheels. The 2012 Nissan 370Z can achieve up to 19 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway. The 370Z is considered to be the little brother of the mighty Nissan GT-R. It is smaller, costs less, and does not have as much power. That being said the 2012 Nissan 370Z does benefit from having the GT-R as an older brother in that some of the high end technology and options have been passed down to the 370Z. The first thing you notice are the huge 19-inch RAYS sport rims. These forged alloy wheels are not only strong but they are also lightweight. The 370Z also sports a sleek body with functional spoilers both front and rear. In the performance department the 2012 Nissan 370Z has a viscous limited-slip differential which makes sure power is transferred to the wheel that needs it the most. Also the Nissan 370Z features a SynchroRev Match system which automatically blips the throttle to promote faster and smoother shifting between gears. The 2012 Nissan 370Z is an excellent sports car. It may be a little rough around the edges and a little on the pricey side, but if you want a true Japanese sports car with over 300 horsepower and rear-wheel drive, then the 370Z is an excellent choice.

2012 Audi R8 V10 Spyder Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/audi/r8/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Audi R8 is considered one of the best supercars you can buy and is available in two distinct body styles, consisting of a coupe and a convertible which is also called the Spyder. There are 2 engine choices available: the 4.2 liter V-8 engine and the 5.2 liter V-10 engine. Base price for the 4.2 liter coupe is a reasonable $114,200 with the 5.2 liter Spyder tested here costing $162,700. And just so you know there is a $3000 gas guzzler tax on this vehicle. Choosing the car of the year list is hard work. When looking at the best convertible for 2012 the Audi R8 V10 Spyder; this car defines what a convertible should be. The R8 Spyder is definitely one of the sexiest cars ever created. There is no mistaking the rear of the Audi R8. You can see this car coming from a mile away. The only drawback with owning the Spyder vs. the coupe is that with the coupe model you get a cool engine cover that is clear. But with the Spyder, there needs to be a place to hide the folding top; thus the engine is hidden. Like most convertibles the Audi R8 Spyder is challenged for cargo space. You would be lucky to get 2 grocery bags into the front storage area. The 2012 Audi R8 V10 Spyder is powered by a 5.2 liter V-10 engine that produces 525 horsepower and 391 lb-ft. of torque. The car rockets from 0-60 MPH in 4.0 seconds. In case you are wonder the Audi R8 V10 gets 13 MPG in the city and 19 MPG on the highway.  Audi has always offered many advanced packages with their vehicles and the R8 has plenty of addition options you can purchase. For $9900 you can upgrade the brakes to a Ceramic Carbon set of high performance rotors and calipers. Or for about $8100 you can opt for the Carbon Fiber Sigma Exterior Package which adds a carbon fiber front spoiler and rear diffuser. On the inside the options include a carbon fiber dress-up kit. For $750 the R8 Spyder can be equipped with a set of cool white gauges. The 2012 Audi R8 is available with paddle shifters but the real driver's choice should be the gated 6-speed manual transmission. The Audi R8 Spyder is one of the best looking cars on the road. When you add in a huge 525 horsepower V-10 engine, the R8 transforms into a monster.
