May 1 - 2015 Mini Chrome Line Exterior Deluxe While this car and the associated press release was an April Fool's joke, the idea of a chrome or metallic finished car isn't. A purely chrome exterior can now be duplicated with contemporary foil wraps, and prior to that, some more daring and diligent souls have applied clear coat on top of bare metal, with mixed results in terms of protection.

April 24 - 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition This 650 hp variant of the Z06 is inspired by the C7.R race car, and perhaps surprisingly, has considerably more horsepower than the track car, with 650 hp vs 491 hp. Granted, that 491 hp from a naturally aspirated 5.5 liter V8 is only the out-of-the-box starting point, and the C7.R weighs much less, at 2745 lbs including the driver vs about 3300 lbs minus the driver, but the message is still clear: you are getting a very powerful car.

April 22 - 2015 McLaren 540C Coupe In less than a month's time from its debut, the $184,900
570S has lost its title for the world's least expensive McLaren. For a mere $165,000 you can drive home your own 533 hp McLaren. The reason for the new McLaren is apparently a topic as mundane as taxes in China, as that country places a steep fee on cars with over 550 hp. Luckily, this car inspired by the peculiarities of the Chinese market will be sold outside of it over 30 countries, including the United States.

April 19 - 2015 Audi prologue allroad The allroad takes that same design language and turns it into an equally dynamic 5 door AWD estate that could easily be the new torchbearer for the A4 and A6 allroad models. And just to make that point clear, Audi has given it a twin-turbo V8 hybrid system that produces 734 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque.

April 19 - 2015 Chevrolet COPO Camaro The very first COPO Camaro of 2015 pulled in $700,000 at the Barret-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. If that number seems a little rich, the money raised is going to charity, the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans. And, it's a hell of car.

April 15 - 2016 Cadillac ELR Introduced in 2013, the original ELR was basically a fine car that had a painfully high sticker price of about $75,000 that, to put it mildly, was simply not realistic. They moved so slowly that discounts of up to $14,000 were offered just to get them off of dealer lots. Cadillac seems to have learned from that mistake, as the new ELR
comes in at a much more appropriate $58,495 price tag while offering
considerable improvements over the prior model. Those improvements
include an over 25 percent increase in horsepower and torque, which
allows an improvement in the 0-60 mph time of 1.5 second

April 13 - 2015 Vaeth Mercedes-Benz GLA 200 Tuning is not merely the province of the most powerful of vehicles, but can simply be a tool to get more fun and function out of driver. This GLA 200 produced 154 hp stock, but with the V20 tuning kit from Vaeth, power was raised 27 horses to 181 hp. Similarly, the stock 184 lb-ft of torque was raised to a more substantial 229 lb-ft. These gains are made possible by changes to the engine electronics.

April 12 - 2015 Citroen Aircross Concept A stylish
crossover that follows the Citroen penchant for unorthodox design, the Aircross is a development of the process started by the C4 Cactus, a vehicle that went little changed from a 2013 concept to a 2014 production car.
