Corvette's Signature Design Cues Prevail Over 60 Year History

With the seventh generation of the Chevrolet Corvette just months away, it’s a good time to take a look at just what makes a Corvette look like a Corvette.

For example, it’s been 60 years since the XP-122 Motorama concept car took the public by storm in 1952, leading to the 1953 debut model, but you can instantly tell it’s a Corvette just as much as the latest 2013 427 Collector Edition convertible.

Tom Peters, GM performance vehicle design director, says each generation of Corvette shares some common elements which create a consistent Corvette theme that is expressive, distinctly American, artful, and passionate.

We’ve all heard of having fun with our Corvette, but a recent video from recombu.com’s Joyride with Rory Reid features the host and his pal, English actor/comedian Robert Llewellyn, definitely taking that idea and spinning it off in a different direction.

The two gents used a Corvette C6 convertible for what some might term a “car-b-que” in the English countryside and captured the entire unique experience on video.

[VIDEO] Mystery Car Taunts a Corvette Z06

[VIDEO] Mystery Car Taunts a Corvette Z06

This video shows a Corvette C6 Z06 (as well as a yellow C5 caught in the crossfire) having to play catch-up for the most part with a mystery car that some viewers believe to be a Nissan GT-R.

No matter what kind of car it is that was doing the filming, it was just plain irresponsible behavior on the part of both drivers, who should have taken their fun and games to a race track away from other innocent travelers who could have been killed by their shenanigans on I-59 in Houston. Several times, it’s amazing that they were able to avoid collisions with other cars.

To illustrate his point, he recently even took his gray-metallic Corvette Z06 to 150 miles per hour in a challenge to the company’s “car guys.” Ammann is one of only 30 GM executives authorized to drive that fast on GM’s Michigan track.

[VIDEO] 2007 Corvette Z06 Is Dismantled in Time Lapse Video

Many of us have taken the time to go to Bowling Green, Kentucky and see how our beloved Corvettes are lovingly put together at the Assembly Plant there.

Not many of us, however, have ever seen the reverse process and witnessed a 2007 Z06 literally taken apart piece by piece.

But you can witness the slow death of a C6 during this video that surfaced online showing how a C6 Corvette was disassembled at the Cleveland Pick-A-Part center.
