Something Is Staring At Us

The new 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 was recently spotted—and it’s better than ever. This sleek and sporty model looks like something straight off the track, with a massive rear wing, sloping contours, large intake, a quad exhaust, and more. You won’t be able to take your eyes off this stunning model.

According to Car and Driver, the new 2018 Corvette ZR1 design includes little details you won’t find elsewhere, including blue-painted opposed-piston brake calipers, a massive front-fascia intercooler air intake system, and an adjustable rear airfoil. An aluminum sub frame is bound to be light, especially thanks to space-age materials. A composite body also helps to cut some weight, and a two-seat interior is ideal for this new sports car.

“With the Viper’s demise imminent, the Corvette soon will be one of only two U.S.-built sports cars,” said editor Don Sherman in an earlier piece about the Corvette. “The new ZR1 will toast seven generations of classic American V-8 performance and value.”

Under the hood will likely be a tuned V8 engine with up to 750 horsepower—enough to thrill any driver. Although there is little news on official specs and other features, the new Corvette ZR1 is bound to set new standards in the industry. We can’t wait to see it in action.

Fallen Roads Around North Carolina

Fall is the perfect time to go for a ride in North Carolina. That’s why we’ve posted a list of fall driving locations in the area, specifically country roads you won’t want to leave. The open road, crisp air, and autumn foliage are the perfect way to relax on a fall day.

According to OnlyInYourState, every North Carolinian loves to visit Blue Ridge Parkway more than any other location when it comes to driving. This 469-mile strip of road has it all: mountain views, waterfalls, lakes, and steep drops. Thanks to large overhangs, you will have the perfect vantage to see acres and acres of bright leaves as they change from bright green to dark earth tones.

Another great drive is the Whitewater Way, which gets its name from the falls. As the highest waterfall east of the Rockies, this location is a must-see place for any driver. The Whitewater Way can be found on Highway 281 between Sapphire and the South Carolina border. You can also stop by the Gorges State Park or the Nantahala National Forest as well.

Hanging Rock and Pisgah Loop Scenic Byways are also great for driving. Hanging Rock is a winding road that goes straight through the Sauratown mountain chain, while the Pisgah Loop takes you along an ancient forest. Running parallel to the Blue Ridge Parkway at times, it’s the perfect place to stop by for some peaceful hiking.

Other great locations include Waterfall Byway, Meteor Lake, Mount Mitchell Scenic Byway, Tail of the Dragon, Upper Yadkin Way, and the Outer Banks Scenic Byway. You’ll learn to love driving again once you stop by these beautiful fall driving locations.
