Rains bring terrible expressions to most of our faces. Mainly for people behind the wheel it’s a real bad situation to drive during the rainy season.  The heavy downpours are dangerous as there are risks of skidding. The rainy seasons call for proper maintenance of your car ensuring a smoother and natural drive on sludgy tracks. It’s our concern to ensure a smooth hazard free drive in down pouring seasons.

Chevrolet 427 Convertible and 60th Anniversary Package

You might not able to see the bow-tie badge when the 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible zooms pass you on the road. It is the fastest convertible ever with a 0 to 60 miles per hour acceleration achieved in just 3.8 seconds. Plus it has the old, big, and mean LS7 V8 under its hood. It can also confidently say that it has a better power-weight ration than the Porsche 911 Turbo S. Before the revelation, the closes thing you can ever get to a Z06 convertible is to have the Grand Sport Convertible which on final analysis lacks the powerful 427 cu. in. of the Z06. Now Chevrolet makes use of the C6 body, installs that powerful heart in the engine bay and a whole lot of go-fast components to make the 427. The setup consists of a 505 hp lS7 linked to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The Magnetic Selective Ride Control plus a battery mounted on the rear comes standard with the Z06 rear axle and drive line. The 427 will roll on 19 and 20 inch cup rims hugged by Michelin PS2s. Z06 lovers will be able to spot

Others come, and others go, and may produce some brilliant cars, but Ferrari just keeps on designing and building the most sensational cars for the road and race track. Challenge Stradale (Challenge the road) is just that as near as you can get to a racer that you can buy as a production car. It has some pedigree, being based on the 360 Modena, the first of Ferari's new generation cars with an aluminum frame and superb V-8 engine. Some informed observers have called it 'the most exciting car in the world', and as you'll see, it must be a top contender. Maybe some fantasy cars with 500-600 bhp compete, but they'll be hard pressed. A true Italian beauty This is also a stunningly beautiful car, with the characteristic twin air intakes at the sides of the front, and flowing lines. It is beautifully balanced from the side, with a fairly short nose and

Maserati GranTurismo, New Model Based On Quattroporte

Despite being based on the large Quattroporte, the Maserati GranTurismo is an elegant, sporty looking car, more along the lines of the GranSport. PininFarina, who was responsible for the styling, has certainly done a fine job. The distinctive Maserati grille, with vertical bars, projects forward of the chin, and the wide air intake below, while the finely curved fenders are just right. The roof is not quite a fastback, the style reflecting the need for two people in the back and some luggage space, while the rear fenders give the car a sporty look. A full four seater, the GranTurismo is 14 in (358 mm) longer than the GranSport, 11 in (282 mm) being in the wheelbase, which is why there is plenty of room in the back the GranSport is quite spacious as 2+2s go. In fact, this is quite a large car. Latest Maserati V-8 egine The GranTurismo is powered by the latest version of Maserati's V-8, which is similar to the engine used in the Ferrari F430, but in this instance it has a capacity of

It’s a dilemma many eco conscious car drivers can relate to: wanting to keep the interior and exterior of their vehicles looking as nice as possible, but without using a ton of water or un-Earth-friendly soaps and waxes. Take heed, “green” car drivers - thanks to some easy-to-follow tips, it is easy to keep your car shiny and clean, without harming the environment. Leave the Driveway for Parking As anybody who ever washed their parent’s car in the driveway knows quite well, it involves using a lot of water. This is exactly why eco conscious drivers should avoid cleaning their car at home.  According to Organic Gardening, washing a car in the driveway can use up a whopping 80 to 140 gallons of water.
