2014 Corvette Stingray Was Nearly Designed by Brazilians

All along, Chevy has made no secret that with the C7, it was aiming to entice a younger breed of buyer to supplement its already loyal, but graying customer base.

That meant Ed Welburn and his crew were willing to listen to all possibilities when it came time to design the seventh generation of the Corvette a few years back.

[VIDEO] Brushing a 2014 Corvette Stingray Model – ASMR

by Keith Cornett on October 31, 2013

Via CorvetteVideos.TV

Tonight I found a whole new genre of videos tagged with “ASMR” which is short for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. According to Wikipedia these videos are designed to “trigger a perceptual phenomenon characterized as a distinct, pleasurable tingling sensation in the head, scalp, back, or peripheral regions of the body in response to visual, auditory, olfactory, and/or cognitive stimuli”.

Here’s the Corvette video that was tagged ASMR – Nearly 10 minutes of a guy brushing a model C7 while you hear night noises in the background. I will say that it very relaxing to watch so there may be something to this.

Relax with a bit of brushing as I show my new 1/18 scale diecast model from Maisto, the 2014 Corvette C7. I really like the styling of this car, all the lines and everything look really cool. I also found it in a great dark red paint. Hope you don’t mind the noise outside, the critters were definitely singing and I needed to keep the back door open.
