Fun and Strange but True Car Facts

Fun and Strange but True Car Facts


At SVG Urbana, we love everything automotive and while researching some topics for future blog posts, we found some fun car facts that we thought would be fun to share with you.


Vehicles have been a part of the American culture for well over 100 years now. Would you believe that the first speeding ticket was issued all the way back in 1902? It’s pretty amazing that during this time, the highest speed most cars could reach was 45 miles per hour!


The Buicks, GMCs and Chevrolets sold at SVG Urbana all have state-of-the-art infotainment systems. Of course with the great music you can hear through the infotainment systems, you’ll be tempted to sing along. Did you know that 90% of people admit to singing in their cars, even without the radio on?!


The vehicles at SVG Urbana are all priced to deliver you a great value. But for those who have a hefty pocketbook, you could purchase a 1931 Bugatti Royale Kellner Coupe. One sold in 1987 for $8.7 million dollars!


If you could drive to the moon in the new GMC Sierra and averaged 60 miles per hour, you’d reach it in around 6 months. It took the astronauts in Apollo 11 took 4 days to get there.


If you want to experience that “over the moon” feeling by getting a new vehicle, be sure to stop in to SVG Urbana today and let our talented sales staff work to find you a great value on a new ride.
