The private collection of 75+ automobiles at the Newport Car Museum focuses on seven decades of modern industrial automotive design and celebrates cars as works of art. From the 1950s to the present, separate exhibits of Ford/Shelby Cars, Corvettes, World Cars, Fin Cars, Muscle Cars and Mopars have been carefully curated to appeal to men as well as women and to all generations, from grandparents to parents to children.
Highlighted here are stellar examples of Jaguars, Mercedes Benz, BMWs, Acuras, Lamborghinis and Porsches.
Classic iconic 1960s cars include the Camaro, GTO, Mustang, Challenger and the Hemi Cuda.
The Z06 was originally designed as a convertible, and the same aluminum frame of that design was adapted for the coupe; therefore, there was no palpable difference in rigidity between the two. Aerodynamic features include a front splitter and a carbon fiber hood with a cooling vent as well as a rear spoiler that incorporates an optional wicker-bill to maximize downforce.
