It's already hot at 11 a.m. as we pull our 2009 Nissan GT-R into the visitor's parking lot at GM's proving grounds in Arizona. The Japanese supercar looks like a spaceship next to the aging, 1960s-era brick buildings that front the massive desert test facility on the outskirts of Phoenix....

Back in the good old days when Ford and Chevy faced off for profits and
bragging rights, it was Mustang vs. Camaro. And did the world ever
tire of that endless battle of axles and pushrods? Well, here we are again.
Ford vs. Chevy. This time, however, it isn't about meatheads with muscle;
it's about moms with soccer balls.

Hennessey Camaro SS
These are the heavy hitters. The big dogs. They're not playmakers or
finesse artists and they don't dish out assists. If the 2010 Ford Shelby
GT500 is Dick Butkus snuffing out a Jim Brown thrust up the middle, then
the 2010 Hennessey Performance Engineering Chevy Camaro SS HPE550 is Lawrence
Taylor with radar lock on Joe Theismann's right leg. And it's not just that
they're powerful and merciless, but intentionally provocative and
intimidating, too. On looks alone, either of these cars is enough to make
the drivers of other machines cower like a three-legged Labradoodle.
They are, of course, muscle cars in the rawest, most vicious sense of the
term. And they're quicker, faster,
meaner and flat nastier than anything built back when Ol' Shel and Don
Yenko were just guys. And not by a little bit either.
But which is the better beast? To find out, we drove these two
all-Americans on the street, at our test track and on the Dynojet chassis Dyno at MD Automotive in
Westminster, California. Then we did some big smoky burnouts just to piss
off the Sierra Club. By the time we were through, Greenpeace had threatened
to blockade the Inside Line garage and the Obama administration was
seriously considering a unilateral deployment of the fun police. Didn't
matter. By then the tires were shot and we had our winner.
Skyline GT-R Heaven: 2009 Nissan GT-R Ultimate Road Trip
It's been a long time coming, but there's a white 2009 Nissan GT-R in the
Inside Line Garage (we photographed it with our Ferrari to prove it). In
fact, the keys are in my pocket as I type this. Forgive me if this is a
short blog post, I'm itching to get on the road.
Here's the deal. The car is a PT2 unit, as in pre-production. And it's
right off of Nissan's Arizona proving grounds. Nissan engineer Bruce
Robinson drove it west from that facility yesterday. According to him the
car runs great but has a tendency to drool a little fuel down the side of
the car when you fill it up. He also said we should invest in a case of
octane Booster. "We recommend 93,
but it'll run on 91," he said. "I'd stop and get a few bottles."
And we will.
We officially leave Los Angeles for the Inside Line Ultimate GT-R Road Trip
early tomorrow morning, so check back and follow along as we drive this
all-wheel drive supercar 3,000 miles in three days. First day's
destination? Well, we plan on hitting the El Mirage drylake for some top
end runs. Then we'll turn north and find our way to Sacramento Dragway for
a Wednesday night of grudge match drag racing. We hope to get there about 5
If you live in the area of the California capital city come on out. We'll
even let you sit in the car while you tell us how much you love Inside
Line. If you can't make it, keep checking this page for blogs, photos and
video of our adventure.

ZR1 Put to the Test: 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Full Test
FOR FULL ARTICLE:
Brute force, a quality we can't help but assign to any car generating 638
horsepower, is by
definition anything but subtle. Yet the 2009 Chevy Corvette ZR1 manages at
once to be both brutally quick and remarkably mild-mannered. Its
quarter-mile acceleration is quicker than any production car we've ever
tested, its chassis is benign but highly capable and its carbon-ceramic
brakes are mind-bending in their effectiveness. This new Vette offers an
unlikely combination of performance and real-world usability that we're
proud to experience in an American car.
This combination is as rare as truth in a presidential debate. Honestly,
most of the ZR1's competition (think Dodge Viper ACR) or Nissan GT-R)) is
less capable and makes a much larger compromise in typical road driving.
With the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 we have a machine that is engaging to
drive, capable of making insane numbers on the test track and also a
legitimate road car.
2010 BMW V Series Exclusive Video
MORE ABOUT THE NEW BMW V-SERIES:
So what exactly is the 2010 BMW V Series? Well, take the nearly
indescribable X6 pseudo SUV, chop the roof down a little, add a few inches
to the wheelbase and stuff the interior full of all the latest technology
BMW has to offer. Still don't understand what BMW is going for here? You're
The story goes that after seeing the lukewarm reception to the
Mercedes-Benz R-Class, BMW backed away from building a similar people mover
of its own. But instead of ditching the idea altogether, BMW refined the
concept a little, and the prototype you see here is the result.
Like the X6, the V Series is expected to have seating for four. The big
difference will be how much room the passengers in the backseat will enjoy.
In the X6 it's a tight fit; in the V Series it will be spacious. A high
roof line and hatchback rear end are the reasons. Together they give the V
Series a unique look that could make or break this unusual sedan.
As big as it looks, the V Series is expected to ride on the next-generation
5 Series platform, so expect a wheelbase of about 115 inches. It doesn't
appear much wider than BMW's current sedans, and although the roof is
obviously higher than a 5 Series, it's still considerably lower than the
Given the size of the V Series and its position between the 5 and 7 Series
sedans, we expect to see a V8 engine as the standard power plant. The new
twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 used in the X6
is a good bet. Then again, tougher mileage standards in the U.S. could
prompt use of BMW's latest clean diesel power plants. Both rear-wheel- and
all-wheel-drive versions of the V Series are likely.
Look for the official debut of the 2010 BMW V Series at the 2009 Frankfurt
Auto Show. Sales in the U.S. should begin by either late 2009 or early
