Awards & Accolades
We think Top Gear made the right call in calling the Corvette Z06 their ‘Muscle Car of the Year’ (even though it’s a sports car, not a muscle car). Check out this beautiful test drive of the Z06 which includes a ride through the Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap.
Top Gear selected the 2015 Corvette as the magazine’s 2015 “Muscle Car of the Year”. The editors said “Go to the outer edge of your personal comfort zone, and the Z06 will meet you there. It’ll trade blows with the best that AMG, BMW, Ferrari or Porsche has to offer, on the trickiest tracks in the world. It’ll make you feel like a million dollars, but costs a fraction of that. America has a new hero.”

Jeremy Clarkson, one of the co-hosts of the BBC’s Top Gear auto show, has turned in his choice for the 2014 Car of the Year and it’s none other than the 2014 Corvette Stingray. We’ve come along way from the days when America’s Sports Car was nothing but a punching bag (or a literal target) for the British auto critic. The choice for the 2014 Car of the Year was announced in the magazine version of Top Gear in their annual awards issue which is out now.
The new Corvette Stingray has been racking up award after award in the past couple of years.
Now the city where the seventh-generation Chevrolet sports car is assembled is finally getting some much-deserved recognition, too.
National Geographic has named Bowling Green, Ky., a Top 10 All-American City in its new book World’s Best Cities: Celebrating 220 Great Destinations because of the Corvette-related attractions there, including the Corvette Assembly Plant, National Corvette Museum, and NCM Motorsports Park.
When Chevrolet launched the C7 Corvette, the American carmaker wanted the world to know how great a sports car it had built.
Apparently the world is getting the message.
For example, the 2014 Corvette Stingray has been named “Best Performance Coupe” in the Middle East Car of the Year awards.
The honors continue to roll in for the seventh-generation Corvette Stingray.
Car and Driver has just named the Stingray to its 2015 10Best Cars list and gushes on and on about the work that chief engineer Tadge Juechter and his crew have done with the car, almost to the point of being embarrassing.
