Death of the Muscle Car? 2014 Camaro

Although the new Camaro has already been out for some time, it doesn't hurt to go back and review what Chevy has done with the new model. From the side the new Camaro looks exactly the same. It still has the same curves and the same large front side panel. This is good news, but I must say that Camaros are not my favorite. The rear just seems to be too out of proportion with the rest of the car.  

Well sadly, the new Camaro has some downfalls. Thankfully, they're not as embarrassing compared to the Mustang changes. The grill in now much thinner than the previous model and although Chevy claims that it gives it a more aggressive look, I say that it does the exact opposite! Do they not know that size matters? This brings up another good question, why is everyone doing smaller headlights? It does NOT make the car look better or more aggressive! I'm talking to you JEEP and FORD! It seems that everyone is trying to play it safe with the same design. Psh, losers. Except for Chevy and its taillights. It seems that while the Camaro was being drawn, the designer's child came along and glued some Lego pieces to the drawing. No one ever noticed the difference and everyone just went with it. Thankfully, it still comes with a decent engine.  An average V6 with a fine amount of 323 horses.

Lamborghini Huracan

I know this isn't a brand new car but I think its a cool car so I'll write about it. First off, it comes with the same engine as the LP-560 except its been modified to give over 600 horsepower. The all wheel drive system cranks out about 635 ft. lbs of torque. With this, it has a top speed of 202 mph, which is pretty damn fast! 

This car's styling is what we would expect from Lamborghini nowadays. It has taken the Aventador's looks while keeping the same size of the previous LP-560. It's obvious that Lamborghini has taken a step towards the future with this car. It's wide body, angular and jagged design and recessed intakes make it look like something out of Tron. The interior keeps the same statement Lamborghini is trying to make, with an LCD gauge cluster, and a use of carbon fiber and other modern materials. The inside of the Huracan looks more like the cockpit of a jet fighter than a car. Overall, while I'm not a huge fan of Lamborghini, I really like this car.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger

The new 2015 Dodge Challenger has recently been revealed at the New York Auto Show. What's so important about this reveal? Well, not much. It's just to make sure and they don't mess up an iconic car. Unlike its competitor, the Mustang, which has gone too European. 

The Dodge Challenger on the other hand has proudly stayed American by having its wide hips and flashy muscles. Along with maintaining its patriotism, Dodge decided to add some small touches. Aggressive headlights were added which look oddly similar to those of the Camaro. A new grill and tail lights were also added to make it look more modern, yet still retro. The largest engine, a 6.4 liter Hemi V8, packs 485 horsepower. Although this is a good amount to have on a Challenger, it's still 200 horsepower shy from a Mustang GT500. C'mon Dodge, why aren't you challenging yourself? Well, at least you'll have some cool old-fashioned Super Bee stickers on it. And yes, it is still the best and my personal favorite muscle car.
