This Forgiato Widebody Corvette Stingray Convertible we saw at SEMA is packing 750 horsepower thanks to its supercharged LT1 V8. The $150K Corvette will soon be sent to its new owner in Japan, but first its taken for a ride on the streets!
After the appearance factor of the Corvette had gotten its final touches we sent it over to the guys at BH Factory to add a few horses to the American beast. Watch as the 750 horsepower Widebody Vette takes over the streets with its undiscovered looks and roaring sound.

When John Hennessey of Hennessey Performance talks, car enthusiasts listen.
Hennessey delivered a “State of the Aftermarket” speech during the recent SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and he offered some advice that anyone seriously interested in buying a 2015 Corvette Z06 would do well to consider.
Many were impressed when the EPA rated the fuel economy for the 2015 Corvette Stingray with the 8-Speed Automatic Transmission at 29 MPG Highway so naturally we’ve been waiting to see where the new Corvette Z06 would come in. After all, the 8-speed automatic was made specifically for the new 650 horsepower super car.
Although it has yet to be confirmed by GM, the official EPA fuel economy ratings for the new 2015 Corvette Z06 have been published on the U.S. Department of Energy’s FuelEconomy.gov website. The entry shows that the 2015 Corvette Z06 with the new 8-speed automatic transmission will get 23 MPG on the highway and 13 MPG in the city for a combined rating 16 MPG.
Could this be a sneak preview of the C8 Corvette or just another tease of a long-rumored mid-engine car from Chevy?
Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
What we do know for sure, though, is that Chevrolet will be unveiling its Corvette Vision GT Concept on Nov. 19 as the newest member of the highly popular Gran Turismo PlayStation game.
One of the custom Corvettes we were anxious to see in person at the SEMA show comes from a new player in the Corvette aftermarket. Revorix is a new company that has deep roots in Japan and now they have set their sights on America. For the SEMA Show, they brought a 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible to showcase their new product line of functional aerodynamic parts for America’s favorite sports car.
Yes it’s Monday but don’t dispair! It’s Midyear Monday here at CorvetteBlogger.com which means it’s time to salute America’s automotive icon of design and performance, the 1963-67 Corvette Sting Ray. Here’s a random photo gallery of 37 Midyear Corvettes to kick off the week.
Maybe the “Cake Boss” should stick to drinking non-alcoholic eggnog.
The 37-year-old star of the TLC reality TV show faces charges of driving while intoxicated and driving with impaired ability after cops saw him driving erratically along the streets of New York City in his 2014 Corvette Stingray around 1 a.m. Thursday.
Sometimes things come cheaper by the dozen.
Or in this case, cheaper by the 11.
That’s how many second-generation Corvette Sting Rays are up for auction as a package deal right now on eBay. Bidding had reached $67,807.07 as of 9:00 am Eastern Time on Monday morning and so far the reserve has not yet been met.
One reason why we like our friends at Purifoy Chevrolet in Fort, Lupton, Colorado so much is that they are not afraid to shake up conventional wisdom by creating and selling their own custom Corvettes.
Those custom Corvettes fall under the “P-Series” designation at Purifoy and those in the know will know that these are not ordinary vettes.
Now there is a new “P-Series” Corvette available from Purifoy and it’s like no Stingray you’ve seen offered before from a Chevrolet dealership.
