You Can Rent The 2020 Corvette

Interested in the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, but don’t want to commit to that price tag just yet? Well, you can now rent the new model and see for yourself if it lives up to the hype. It’ll cost you, though. Almost $300 a day for weekdays and $400 for Thursday or the weekend. An owner based in Miami, Florida is renting out the 195th example to complete production. The car is a fully loaded 3LT spec with the Z51 package with Ceramic Gray Metallic Exterior, with white and black suede GT2 seats in the interior.

“I’ve owned and driven tons of sports cars in my life but this is truly on another level! I feel like I’m always driving a Formula 1 race car,” the owner wrote. “You don’t even miss the manual transmission with the crisp up and downshifts coming from the 8 Speed DCT transmission. The steering feels like it could pull as many Gs as you can throw at it.” Check it out, right here.

Recreating a Classic: The Shelby GT500CR

What do you get when you mix a Shelby GT500 and the best of the best in the industry? One hell of a souped-up ride. Dawning a “blurple” exterior, the Shelby GT500CR started out at a 1967 Mustang until Jason Engel and his team at Classic Recreations got their hands on it. Check out what kind of magic they worked:

  • 7.0-liter Ford Performance V-8
  • Supercharger
  • 770 horsepower

For $234,000, you could have one just like it.

This 810-HP Rolls-Royce Wraith

Talk about an ultra-luxury car on steroids. Jon Olsson, swedish skier and self-proclaimed motorhead, is known for his custom rides. Previous projects include the DTM-Inspired Audi RS6 and the supercharged 800-hp Lamborghini Huracan with a ski box on the roof. Well, he’s traded his Lambo for a more.. practical, set of wheels. He explored other options like the Nisan GT-R and Ferrari FF, but landed on a Rolls-Royce Wraith. Solid choice.

The Wraith, nicknamed George, has been fitted with a winter camouflage vinyl wrap. As the summer months rolled in, the roof rack was modified to carry a surfboard instead of skis and a huge set of spotlights. This custom Rolls was built by Absolute Motors, and they hooked up “George the Rolls” with some serious modifications in the power department. Packed with a twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V12, the modified Wraith packs a whopping 810-hp and rides on 24-inch forged rims. He wrote, “Who would have thought that you could have a race car sounding, smoke shooting, cage carrying monster machine with a RR badge in the front?” Not us, Jon.
