March 2013 saw a crazy amount of cars drop, from a 500hp classic, to a pretty lightweight Brit that's actually never been in a pop band, to a six-wheeled German behemoth. Most of 'em dropped at the New York International Auto Show. Read on for the very best
2014 Camaro Z/28
The all-new Camaro Z/28 has over 200 separate modifications compared to a stock Camaro -- all designed to make it a capable performer on track -- ranging from suspension tweaks, to interior refinements, to over 300lbs in weight reduction via tricks like using ultra-thin rear window glass, special brakes made outta carbon, getting rid of Louie Anderson, and deleting interior sound deadeners.

2013-14 Shelby Raptor
The Ford SVT Raptor's built to climb mountains, hop sand dunes, and skirt across the Baja peninsula at break-neck speed, so anyone who owns one's gotta be a little crazy. But for anyone whose crazed, off-road wanderlust still isn't sated, Shelby's just dropped their version of it: a 575hp beast (up from only 411), decked with a custom interior and an insane amount of "Shelby" badging that's just begging you to throw mud on the iconic name. Check it out and order yours, right here...
2014 Jaguar XJR
After taking some time off while it was being perfected, the new XJR hits showrooms in a few months with nearly 550hp from a freshly-tweaked supercharged V8 to go along with a performance-oriented suspension. Loads of pics? Video? Riiiight here...
2014 Viper SRT TA
Dodge is only making 33 of these things, which take the already insanely-powerful Viper SRT and add a host of performance goodies, ranging from a track-oriented Bilstein-equipped suspension, to special carbon-fiber aerodynamic bits in the front and rear, to special fiberglass seats capable of taking a six-point racing harness
2014 Callaway Aerowagon
For anyone who looks at the Corvette and thinks, "Hmmm, it's not wagon-y enough", the folks at long-time Corvette tuner Callaway've got your back with this shooting brake version penned by a Montreal designer; it's a $15k addition to a base 'Vette, but Callaway's currently working on their performance package for the latest model, so expect something in the mid-600hp range. Go ahead and let 'em know you'll want one when it comes out, right here
2014 Cadillac CTS
Aiming to build the Cadillac of... well, Cadillacs, GM's just pulled the curtain back on the new CTS, a 420hp, twin-turbo-ed V6 that comes with a suspension that re-adjusts to the road every five milliseconds using frickin' magnets and a 3,600lb chassis that features 50-50 weight distribution for optimal cornering. Since they haven't forgotten about luxury/how many people drop bowling balls next to beverages, they're even putting memory foam in the front seats. Take a virtual tour of the car
Mercedes G 63 AMG 6x6
Since 4x4s are everywhere, Mercedes just upped the ante with a 6x6, featuring all the luxuries you'd expect outta Mercedes, a truck bed lined in bamboo, and a 544hp motor shoving power to all six wheels through a complex system of differentials and military-grade parts -- so, like Daniel Tosh, it'll go just about anywhere
2014 Jaguar XKR-S GT
With the same 550hp as it's 4-door XJR sibling, the XKR-S GT not only has pretty much the worst possible hand at Scrabble, it's a pretty righteous track-oriented Jag, with carbon everywhere, from the brakes to the front splitter and rear wing -- the car was designed to be aerodynamically stable at high speeds -- and a heavily revised suspension. Yep, we've got your video & slideshow needs covered, right here
2014 Mercedes B-Class Electric Drive
Aiming to zap the competition in a far more technical/less velour-laden way than Brannigan ever has, Mercedes just flipped the switch on its coming-to-America, Tesla-assisted, 2014 B-Class Electric drive -- a 100mph-going, 134hp-having ride that can go up to 115mi on a single charge by using a kinetic energy recovery system. Get the full picture in this gallery
Mercedes CLA45 AMG
To get the totally hand-built, two liter, four-cylinder engine in the CLA45 AMG to 355hp, Mercedes used a pair of twin-scroll turbochargers to give it more pressure (26.1psi!) than Tony Romo's feeling to live up to the huge contract the Cowboys are paying him; they're feeding that power to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, and giving the car exterior tweaks (check out all the pics, right here) like carbon fiber insets in the side skirts, rear bumper, and front splitter.
