Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible

The Corvette Stingray (or “Sting Ray” of yesteryear) began its mysticism since its conceptualization became a reality in 1963. And now, for the first time, the rear mid-engine platform for today’s C8 version shakes things up in stunning fashion powered by a 6.2-liter, 495-horsepower V8 engine with 8-speed dual clutch transmission.

Boasting a curvaceous shell that will leave even the most exotic sports car in envy, the power-retractable hardtop review version (also a first for a Corvette which can be activated remotely) was dressed in a classy Long Beach Red Metallic exterior sitting on 19-inch wheels in the front and 20-inch in the rear. The cockpit also impresses with highly recommended enhancements including the GT2 bucket seats (carbon-fiber trim and genuine Napa leather); 2LT Package (Infotainment 3 Premium System, BOSE Series 14 sound system, HD front curb camera, numerous traffic alerts, head-up display); temperature-controlled seats, wireless charging, etc.); and user-friendly controls complete with a high-definition rearview camera mirror. The Z51 Performance Package (racing-inspired embellishments including upgraded Z51 brakes, spoiler, exhaust, rear-axel ratio, suspension) further contributed to an exhilarating driving experience. 2021 boasts new interior and exterior color options such as Driver Mode Selector Visualization; FE2 suspension, and wireless phone projection. Highly recommended and reasonably priced starting at just over $66K, this Stingray should be considered one of the best cars the US has ever produced.

Price: $66,400 (MSRP); $83,875 as reviewed with multiple packages

Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye

The word “Hellcat” perks the ear of virtually every car enthusiast, In fact, its now legendary power will immediately have muscle-car fanatics drool at the mere mention of “Redeye” attached, signifying numerous enhancements taking the Charger to another level in 2021. Dodge justly labels it a “Demon possessed” vehicle, this year’s introduction of the Redeye comes with specs that are simply jaw dropping; the 6.2-Liter HEMI engine's 797 horsepower, 707 lb.-feet of torque and a top speed of 203 mph will certainly boost the numbers of the growing legion of devotees. The fender flares get 3.5 inches of more width to the widebody platform along with the award-winning SRT Power Chiller also accompany this trim. Everything from the transmission shift speeds, to the paddle shifters, steering, traction and suspension settings can be controlled by the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, plus three SRT Drive Modes: Street (Auto), Sport and Track. The generously standard Brembo brake system keeps up to five passengers confident to offset the Hellcat’s roar.

A membership to a nearby track comes highly recommended for the future owner in order to truly experience what the Hellcat has to offer. In fact, there’s a Bondurant High Performance Driving School based in Chandler, Arizona, which Dodge sponsors to truly assist in training this animal. Whatever is considered, make it habitual to kindly decline offers to race at stoplights from disbelievers of what this four-door rocket is renowned for. Just keep them wondering as you drive off smiling.

Price: $69,995 (MSRP); $86,865 with all options listed above.
