It was either that or a Colorado ZR2. Last night’s MLB All-Star Game in Miami proved to be one for the ages. After going an extra inning, the American League walked away victorious with a game-winning homer by Seattle Mariner Robinson Cano. Cano, meanwhile, walked away with his first MVP trophy in eight All-Star game appearances, and a brand new Chevy Corvette Grand Sport. After going 1-for-2 in the game with a game-winning home run, an RBI, and a run scored, Cano was given the choice of either a 460-horsepower (343-kilowatt) Corvette Grand Sport, or a trail-rated Colorado ZR2. Naturally, Cano chose the former. He’s just the third Mariner to win the coveted All-Star MVP trophy following Ichiro Suzuki in 2007, and Ken Griffey Jr. in 1992. For reference, the Corvette Grand Sport has an asking price of $65,450, and delivers the aforementioned 460 hp (343 kW) courtesy of a 6.2-liter V8. From a standstill, the Grand Sport is able to sprint to 60 … [Read more...] about All-Star Game MVP Robinson Cano Gets Corvette Grand Sport

It would be cheaper than the Chiron, but it could still cost seven figures. Bugatti’s W16 engine might seem like a dinosaur in the era of downsizing, but there’s still a market big enough to justify the existence of the multi-million-dollar Chiron and all of its quad-turbo 8.0-liter derivatives. That said, the folks from Molsheim can’t simply ignore what is currently going on in the industry and have to adapt by starting to think about a future when the internal combustion engine will breathe its last breath. Being a small manufacturer that builds about 100 cars each year, it can’t simply afford to shell out the money to invest in a second product line to sit alongside the Chiron. It needs the help of its parent company, the almighty Volkswagen Group. Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelman told Bloomberg during an interview held in Berlin that getting the seal of approval from VAG is going to be a “hard fight.” Gallery: Bugatti Galibier … [Read more...] about Bugatti In Talks With VW Group About Four-Seat Electric Car
