Our friends at Jalopnik have really proved themselves to be the go-to website when it comes to breaking news on the next generation 2014 C7 Corvette. They created the first renders of the C7 last November and since then, all the spy photos and leaked supplier videos have pretty much confirmed that the new Corvette will look like Jalopnik said it would.
Last month, Trinity Animation used the Jalopnik renderings as well as other corroborating evidence to create an animated video of the C7 Corvette and now Jalopnik is sharing Trinity’s latest rendering of the C7 Corvette in stunning black. As the headline suggest, yes, this photo will make you fall in love with the 2014 Chevy Corvette.
One of the hardest working vendors you will see at a major Corvette show are the guys from Adam’s Premium Car Care Products. Every time we walked by their booth at Corvettes at Carlisle, they had a different Corvette parked in front and several detailers hard at work demonstrating Adam’s products to the assembled crowds.
We caught up with Adam Pitale, founder and President of Adam’s, who was very excited to tell us about their exclusive line of car care products branded and endorsed by GM for the Corvette and Camaro. So we tagged along and had the opportunity to see some of them demonstrated to members of GM’s Corvette Team.
It’s a tribute to the engineers at Chevrolet that the Corvette ZR1 is even considered a peer with the much, much more expensive Ferrari 458 Italia and the McLaren MP4-12C.
Road & Track recently decided to pit three of the best that the United States, Italy, and Britain have to offer at Spring Mountain’s Radical Loop, with IMSA GT legend Steve Millen driving for the timed laps. Millen, of course, has the most all-time wins in that series with 20 as well as the most pole positions with 23.
As a scorching Corvette ZR1 roars around a turn in the background, automobile expert Matt Farah of the Attack of the Show asks viewers on the Web if they’d like to drive that.
“I can’t but I’d sure as hell like to,” Farah says. “Today that’s what we’re gonna do.”
Former Corvette Racing driver Andy Pilgrim is in Bowling Green, KY this weekend for his induction into the National Corvettes Museum’s Corvette Hall of Fame. When he arrived at the Museum, he was greeted by this 427 Convertible that pays tribute to the driver’s service to Corvette.
A Labor Day tradition continues this weekend when Auctions America by RM hosts their annual fall auction at the Auburn Auction Park in Auburn, Indiana. The action started on Thursday when the first of roughly 1,200 collector cars are expected to cross the auction block. Included in that number are about 50 Corvettes. We take a look at some of our favorites after the break.
Back in May, a seller on eBay was auctioning a 1967 Corvette that belonged Neil Armstrong, American astronaut and the first man to walk on the moon. With the passing of the American hero on August 25, 2012 at the age of 82, there has been renewed interest in the Sting Ray.
We’ve closed the hood on yet another Corvettes at Carlisle show weekend. The 31st annual event was held last weekend at the Carlisle Fairgrounds in Carlisle, PA. After a shortened event last year due to Hurricane Irene, we were glad to see this show back firing on all cylinders. Great weather nearly all weekend provided the perfect backdrop on one of the best Carlisle shows yet.
Sometimes it’s tough being young.
For example, just ask the players on the prestigious Manchester United soccer squad in Great Britain who are younger than 23. They won’t be able to take full advantage of a very generous offer by the team’s newest sponsor, Chevrolet, to give them the Chevy of their choice, even a shiny new Corvette.
