…Camera cars are crazy?

Camera Cars

Take a car (or truck, or motorcycle, or Hummer, or R/C car, or whatever), paint it matte black (to reduce glare), add in aftermarket performance upgrades, elaborate electronics, exotic materials, and gyro-stabilizers, and what do you get?

Camera cars, that’s what.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Mopar?

Mopar (a conjunction of MOtor and PARts) is the Chrysler Group’s parts and services division, and also responsible for occasionally acting as the brand’s aftermarket performance division. Their latest creation, debuted at the Detroit Auto Show, is a Dodge Viper SRT-10 with an attitude. Under the old mantra “there’s no replacement for displacement”, MOPAR found a monstorous 675 horsepower hiding within their 8.4-liter V10 thanks to better cooling, a cold-air intake, and a variety of other tweaks. In addition to the go fast good stuff, they added adjustable suspension, blacked-out alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin rubber, some nice carbon fiber body appendages, and painted the entire thing in anthracite-gray with a bold red stripe running down the passenger’s side. Venom never looked like so much fun.
