If the new Corvette Stingray isn’t quite distinctive enough for you, then you might want to check out the eBay auction going on right now for a Forgiato Widebody C7 Corvette Stingray, one of which was on display at SEMA in November.

We found a video today at www.forgiato.com that shows two of the distinctive “Aston Martin Blue” Forgiato Stingrays weaving their way down a city street. We’re not sure if the car for sale now is one of those or not.

[VIDEO] C7 Corvette Z06 Prototype Spotted at Yuma Arizona Walmart

Here’s a pretty funny video of two guys in a old VW who chase down a pre-production Corvette Z06 prototype as it pulls into a Walmart in Yuma, AZ. The driver of the Corvette greets the two and answers some basic questions before heading inside, although we found it interesting that he further confuses them by referring to the Corvette by its Z07 equipment package instead of the model designation which is indeed the Z06.

Wait, SCCA racing on a frozen lake? Count us in! We don’t see this Stingray take on the whole course but the video shows the painfully slow launch as the Corvette begins its run.

Filmed at the Saginaw Valley SCCA Ross Lake ice race in Beaverton MI on Jan 26th 2014. Here’s a sound clip of a stock 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray Z51 with dual mode performance exhaust. The new LT1 engine sounds great. Yes, it actually did race the ice race!

The Corvette is owned by Casey Swanseger and he sent us a link to his GoPro video showing the run on the ice course. You can watch it here.
