Friday night at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, the first retail 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible wearing VIN 001 was auctioned for charity.

No Corvette this year for the Super Bowl MVP.
That’s the word from Automotive News regarding General Motors’ advertising plans for this year’s Super Bowl.

Taking delivery of a new Corvette Stingray through the National Corvette Museum’s R8C Delivery Program can be a very memorable experience. We’ve seen grown men act like kids in a candy shop as they are handed the keys to their new rides. And speaking of kids, the Museum just hosted one of the cutest new Corvette deliveries we’ve seen that is guaranteed to turn a kid into a Corvette fan for life.
We Corvette enthusiasts are passionate about our cars.
That leads some of us to pay extra to pick up our new Corvette at the National Corvette Museum, and still others of us to open our wallets even wider and pay to actually see our very own new Corvette being put together at the assembly plant in Bowling Green.
Now some owners will be able to take it to the next level and actually build the engine that will reside under the hood of their 2015 Z06!

That seems Jay Leno’s favorite word to describe how he feels about the 2015 Corvette Z06 as the popular comedian, retired Tonight Show host, and car fanatic gets to see, touch, and drive a pre-production model of the Chevy supercar in this episode of Jay Leno’s Garage.
“Man, this thing is fast!” he says during his rip-roaring drive along a curvy, hilly California road with Chevy product specialist Shad Balch.
Ahh, the new year brings so much promise and excitement when you own a Corvette. As I was making my resolutions for the New Year, I saw more than one on my list that was Corvette-related: I’ve got some engine work I’d like to do on my ’66 Vette and am thinking of rejoining the local club.
That got us thinking. Do any of your News Year’s resolutions include your Corvette? Take the poll and let us know!
