2013-SRT-Viper-22.JPG

The most highly anticipated reveal of the 2012 NY Auto Show did not disappoint. Sure it’s has a remarkably similar 8.4-liter V10 engine with 640 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque, but that’s hardly something to complain about.

The rest of the all-new Viper is wildly new, however, with some rather Ferrari-inspired styling (the red paint doesn’t hurt), as well as premium interior components. The car also weighs 100 lbs less thanks to carbon fiber hood, roof and trunk, not to mention carbon fiber racing seats.

2013-Acura-ILX-19.JPG

First shown in concept form a month ago at the Detroit Auto Show, Acura has revealed its new entry-level ILX sports sedan at the Chicago Auto Show today.

Based on the Civic platform it certainly doesn’t look it, though it does share some very familiar powertrains. With a base 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, there’s also a 2.4-liter performance version and a 1.5-liter hybrid for the greenies.

Toyota GT 86 01.JPG

Three years of rumors, concepts and leaks have come to this: the debut of the Toyota 86 sports car at the Tokyo Motor Show. Introduced by company CEO Akio Toyoda, a man dedicated to rebuilding Toyota’s enthusiast base, he launched an all new slogan, boldly proclaiming that the giant Japanese automakers is, “Fun to Drive, Again”.

As you no doubt have already hear the car is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder direct-injection boxer engine with a 12.5:1 compression ratio making 200-hp and 151 lb-ft of torque. It’s not a lot of punch, but with a curb weight right around 2,700 lbs, it should deliver plenty of fun.
