Kai Spande, Manager of the Bowling Green Assembly Plant was at the 2016 Corvettes at Carlisle Show and he provided an update to the new $439 million paint shop addition that is currently under construction. Kai also spent time to explain the process of how painting a Corvette is different from any other car.
After the 2018 Corvette ZR1/Z06X was recently captured up close by spy photographers, the Corvette Team must believe it can go ahead and drive their C7 prototypes out on public streets. Maybe they have been doing it in Michigan but this is the first time we’ve seen them so far from home.
John Caravaggio and his passion for creating luxurious accessories for Corvettes is well known as owners and enthusiasts have long turned to the Canadian shop for handcrafted leather seats, steering wheels and other interior items. But lately, we’ve seen Caravaggio updating the Corvette’s exteriors to make the outside of the car look just as good as his custom interiors.
Caravaggio previously featured a 2016 Corvette Z06 Convertible done in the style of a European touring drop-top with an off-white hues and a custom brown interior. Now they are showing their take on another Corvette Z06 customized and enhanced both inside and out.
RideTech triple adjustable coilovers and Delrin bushing components will be installed on NCM track cars, and visitors to the track will be able to buy RideTech suspension parts on site. RideTech will also be involved in track support activities.
Corvettes at Carlisle brought many opportunities to talk and listen to members of the Corvette production team who attended the show. Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles was scheduled to give a walkaround presentation of the new 2017 Corvette Grand Sport on Friday afternoon so we popped in and filmed it so we can share it with those who were not there.
