After a busy couple of days in Detroit, the Torch Red 2014 Corvette Stingray made its way eastward to New York on Tuesday morning for a guest appearance on NBC’s Today show. The Stingray and Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter both braved wet weather as the new car got yet another introduction.
This was the first chance we’ve had to see the new C7 out on the streets. Host Matt Lauer became the first non-GM person to drive the car as he piloted it a short distance down the soggy streets surrounding Today’s studio before eventually stopping near their outdoor set. From there Tadge talks about the new car and its various attributes. We also get a quick look at both of the 8” display screens while they’re powered up.
One new tidbit we noticed in New York was that the C7 will not melt if it indeed gets wet. Take a note prospective C7 buyers.
This next stop for this particular car is the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction as it will represent the C7 when 2014 Corvette VIN #1 is auctioned for charity.
