We so often debate styling panache, refinement levels and technology advancement when we talk about the best cars on the market. But in the same way that a perfectly cooked steak can match haute cuisine; old fashioned grunt and a square jaw can also win an argument. The prime example is our feature car. I’ll admit, there isn’t a whole lot of subtlety to the Camaro ZL1, which is why I find it so attractive. Rather than merely pay tribute to a Motown Muscle Car, it is the real deal.
It wasn’t really a surprise that it was awarded “Hottest Car of the Year” by well-respected NZ automotive review website Drivelife - beating a bunch of thundering European machines in the process. They summed it up perfectly; “There is not much more to say about the HSV Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Everything about it has been dialled to 11; the engine, the driving experience and the styling. It’s a clear winner in our eyes as the Hottest Car of 2019.”
Next weekend is a big one for us, with Mark Webber and Earl Bamber debuting the incredible Porsche Taycan at the Leadfoot Festival, while we will also unveil the Bentley Flying Spur at the Ellerslie Concours Classic Car Show. Two great cars and two great events - we’d love to see you at either.
In the meantime, check out some Cool Cars and Great Deals.
