SEMA is only open to members, buyers, vendors, and media. Don’t fret if you couldn’t be there as our Corvette photo gallery awaits you just beyond the Read More button below.

Throughout the sixty years of Corvette history there are relatively few cars with the background, impressive credentials and significance of the renowned #57 1969 L88 racecar known as “Rebel”. The Rebel was so famous and celebrated that Revell® offered a replica model kit of the car in 1:24 scale. On Saturday afternoon, January 18, 2014, Barrett-Jackson will auction the legendary racecar during their annual Scottsdale auction extravaganza.
Behold the Concept7 which made its debut last week at SEMA. The Concept7 is latest creation from racer Jeff Nowicki and his newly minted Nowicki Autosport Design. The Concept7 takes a stock 2014 Corvette Stingray and mixes in a healthy dose carbon fiber and other mods to create the masterpiece that awaits you after the break.
A few months ago, GM President Mark Reuss perked up the ears of Corvette enthusiasts when he said the idea of a production hybrid ‘Vette was “a very attractive idea.”
Well, Chevy has been beaten to the punch by a company named Quanta, which manufactures replacement parts like fuel tanks and radiators.
You either love it or hate it. That’s the consensus we’ve come to as there doesn’t seem to be much in-between when it comes to the Forgiato Widebody C7 Corvette Stingray shown at SEMA last week.
We admit that “Aston Martin Blue” exterior color is a little tough for us to go for too, but those curves are so cool! It’s a car that’s totally at home in the SEMA Dub Show and to see it live is to appreciate the look and the workmanship that went into the build. But I couldn’t imagine this as a daily driver.
