We had a unique opportunity on Tuesday to drive the new 2015 Corvette Stingray at the Milford Road Course, the private track located on GM’s Mildford Proving Grounds. One of the cars that was provided to the auto-journalists in attendance was the very first 2015 Corvette Stingray wearing VIN 00001.
Think about the difference that just a year makes. The very first 2014 Corvette Stingray with VIN 00001 sold for over a million dollars to Rick Hendrick. The 2015 Corvette Stingray wearing VIN 00001 was getting flogged by a bunch of amateur racer wannabees (and I include myself in that description!!).
The Shark Gray looked great outdoors, with Michigan sunshine showing every few minutes through the building clouds that finally let loose at the end of the session.
The Corvette Team’s Harlan Charles told us that eventually the car will be getting a set of new 2015 wheels, but in the meantime its sporting these chrome aluminum Z51 wheels.
Oh, and speaking of wheels, a 2015 Corvette Stingray in Laguna Blue was on the scene as well with VIN 00038. That car did have a set of new 2015 QCC Black Machined Aluminum Wheels in 19″ fronts and 20″ rears.
We’ll have more on our trip to the Milford Proving Grounds shortly but in the meantime, enjoys these pics of the new Shark Gray Corvette Stingray:
And here’s that new QCC Black Machined Wheel on the Laguna Blue Corvette Stingray:
