Last week we shared the trailer for the upcoming episode of Top Gear which features a Velocity Yellow C7 Corvette Stingray. If you want to wait for the episode to air tonight at 8:30 pm ET on BBC America, then feel free to move along. As the show already aired in the UK, there is a recording of the episode on YouTube showing Top Gear co-host Richard Hammond putting the Stingray through its paces and comparing the car to the Porsche Cayman GTS. But that’s not all that happens. The Stig gets his chance as well and we’ll have his course time after the jump.
The latest trailer for the BBC’s Top Gear dropped this week and it shows that a C7 Corvette Stingray will finally get some screen time on the widely popular automotive show featuring hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James Mays.
Given the show’s previous use of Corvettes for mockery and mayhem, I would normally caution Corvette fans that it might be a mixed bag in terms of how the Corvette will be featured, but judging from the trailer, it looks like the Velocity Yellow Corvette Stingray will be shown in a straight-up comparison test against a Porsche Cayman.
For Wilmington, N.C., auto dealer Don Latham, the 1967 Corvette Sting Ray he bought at a Florida auction last week has the right stuff.
You see, he bought one of the Corvettes owned by the “Mercury Seven,” the men chosen by NASA in April 1959 to lead America into the Space Age.
All seven of the astronauts had a Corvette, and this one belonged to Virgil “Gus” Grissom, who was one of the three astronauts who died on the launch pad aboard Apollo 1 on Jan. 27, 1967.
Now that Jeff Gordon has announced 2015 will be his final full-time season competing in NASCAR, he’s already thinking about what the future may hold.
Though he’s made millions over his very productive stock car career and could likely spend the rest of his life relaxing at an island resort, Gordon no doubt will want to continue to dabble in racing.
In fact, at last Thursday’s NASCAR Media Day, he told reporters he would like to compete in an occasional endurance seat after he’s retired.
Some say he is terrified of Scouts and he spends his spare time catching fish with his tongue or foraging for wolves in the woods. All we know is Auto Evolution says this woman is the wife of the Stig, the mysterious white-cloaked driver on the British motoring television show Top Gear.
Dale Martin says he recently took these photos of who he claims is Mrs.The Stig at the North Star Dragway in Texas.
The sheer number of vehicles for sale on eBay is impressive of course, but the incredible variety that are for sale never ceases to amaze. If you are a Corvette fan of a certain age that never missed Speed Racer, eBay has the car to satisfy your wildest fantasy — a Speed Racer Mach 5 replica based on a 1981 Corvette.
Have you seen the Gold Digger videos where a guy stands next to a really expensive car and asks women if they want to go for a ride? Those that say yes are assumed to be “gold diggers” as they think the guy has some deep pockets. But put that same guy next to a beat up Honda Accord and he gets rejected every time.
That’s the premise of this video only with a twist. A pretty girl is the protagonist and the bait car is new Torch Red C7 Corvette Convertible.
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.
GM will skip the ads during the game but will still have a presence as Chevrolet will be presenting the game’s MVP with the new mid-size Colorado truck during the post-game show.
