General Motors has just built its 1.75-millionth Corvette

The 1,750,000th Chevrolet Corvette has rolled off the production line, marking another milestone for the iconic American sport scar. The first-ever Corvette – white with red interior – roared into life on 30 June, 1953 and now 67 years later, the 1.75 millionth Corvette is also finished in Arctic White with a red leather interior, an homage to that very first Corvette.

You call that a ute? Meet the supercharged Chevrolet Goliath 6x6

Just when you thought the Chevrolet Silverado Goliath 6x6 couldn’t get any crazier, US tuning firm Hennessey has fitted a supercharger to boost the V8 to a mind-boggling 800 horsepower. The custom-built, road-legal six-wheel-drive monster truck costs in excess of $USD400,000 in North America, equivalent to about $AUD600,000 based on today’s exchange rates. Customers start with the ‘regular’ $USD375,000 version and then add a $USD30,000 supercharger kit and some other toys.

Holden dealers hire investigator to find out when GM decided to axe the brand

EXCLUSIVE Holden dealers have hired a private investigation firm to find out if US car giant General Motors knew it was going to axe the iconic Australian brand more than a year before the shutdown announcement. They say General Motors continued to encourage investment in showroom upgrades, promised a raft of new models, and had recently signed the Holden dealer network to five-year franchise agreements even though, they claim, Detroit already had plans to shut its Australian division.

Ford factory workers to wear buzzing wristbands to maintain social distancing

Ford factory workers in the US will wear buzzing wristbands to help maintain social distancing, the Bloomberg news agency has reported. Initially, only 12 workers will take part in the experiment wearing the ‘watch-like’ or ‘fitness-like’ wristbands. The devices are supposed to vibrate when employees come within six feet (about 1.8 metres) of each other, a Ford spokesperson told the news agency.
