Detroit Autorama takes place each year in early March. 2013 marks the 61st rendition of the massive indoor custom car show. It was also the 50th anniversary of the prestigious Ridler Award. We made our annual trek down to Cobo Hall last weekend to check out all of the custom rides. Hit that magical Read More button below to see our gallery of some the best custom Corvettes around.
The Corvette Z06 may not look like much to you after this accident in California, but to the lucky driver who survived this horrific crash, it looks mighty beautiful, no doubt.
On Monday, he was driving his C6 Corvette on the southbound 405 Freeway in Sepulveda Pass when he somehow rammed into the back of a box truck and was stuck.
Sometimes it just doesn’t pay to be a hurry, especially when a race ends in a crash and charges being filed by police against both competitors.
That was the case Sunday when a Yamaha motorcycle and a yellow 2006 Corvette Z06 were allegedly racing on Route 80 west in Hackensack, N.J., and collided after they merged into the center lane at the same time. Guess you could say the race ended in a tie, huh?
Chevrolet got some good news and some bad from Consumer Reports in its annual Car Brand Perception survey.
In the survey, Consumer Reports lists each automaker’s highest-rated vehicle – and its lowest-rated.
Fortunately for Corvette fans, the Z06 was Chevy’s highest rated with a score of 92.
Early Thursday morning just after 8 am, an Arctic White 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible rolled off the assembly line at Bowling Green’s Corvette Assembly Plant. Not only was it the final Corvette of the 2013 model year, but it was also the very last C6 Corvette made.
If the luxurious new C7 interior on the way this fall has given you a case of “leather envy” and you still love your C6, then you might want to think about contacting a company called Carlex Designs for an upgrade of your current Corvette.
One such car has already been envisioned by the company, which says the owner of this C6 coupe asked for a nice toned interior, “something that would suit a middle aged gentleman who enjoys casual driving in his lovely Corvette.”
There are some folks out there who say they haven’t made a “real” Corvette since the last of the chrome bumpers in 1973.
Maybe the Lithuanian owner of this totally, and we do mean totally, chromed C6 convertible is one of those people.
We first showed you last year the violent crash of a helicopter that was racing a Corvette ZR1 as part of a stunt for Top Gear Korea, the South Korean version of the popular British show.
Well, last weekend the BBC released more footage of the stunt that featured the show’s Kim Jin Pyo trying to outrun a retired U.S. military Bell AH-1 Cobra copter.
