Sometimes greatness comes from taking a small step. That’s how this stunning 1958 Corvette restomod from Legacy Innovations that we saw this week at the SEMA show came to be.
Chevrolet this week showed 2 other concept Corvette Stingrays at SEMA in Las Vegas. In addition to the Gran Turismo Corvette Stingray Concept we showed you Tuesday, they also showed off the Atlantic and Pacific concepts as well. The cars are intended to represent the differences styling between the left and right coasts of the U.S. We’ll take a look at the Pacific concept a little later, but for now click past the jump to check out our photo gallery and video walkaround of the Corvette Stingray Atlantic concept.
Chevrolet unveiled three unique Concept Corvette Stingrays this week at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. Fans of the Gran Turismo racing game franchise will be excited to know that the 2014 Corvette Stingray will be one of the rides available in the upcoming version 6 of the game. To commemorate the occasion, Chevrolet built a life size version specifically for SEMA dubbed the Corvette Stingray Gran Turismo concept.
On the eve of the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas and hours before they are officially revealed in person at this evening’s Media reception (which will be live streamed starting at 7:25 pm PT), Chevrolet is showing off its performance car portfolio consisting of Corvettes, Camaros and the new Chevy SS Performance Sedan.
There are three Corvette Stingray Concepts being shown at SEMA, two Stingray Coupes and a Convertible. Chevy is calling two of the Corvette Stingrays the Atlantic and Pacific Concepts. The third Stingray is the real life version of a Corvette that can be seen and driven in the upcoming Play Station 3 game Gran Turismo 6, which commemorates the games 15th anniversary.

We told you a few weeks ago about a one-of-a-kind 1965 Corvette Sting Ray that has been on the track since it was born – and in the same family for more than 30 years. Brian Hobaugh will again be aiming for the top prize with his family’s Corvette in the OPTIMA Batteries Ultimate Street Car Invitational 2013 on Saturday, Nov. 9 from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. (PST) in Pahrump, Nev.
The new Corvette Stingray is one of those cars that is just begging for customization that takes an already great car to even higher levels.
One such treatment comes to us courtesy of Michigan-based TZD, which has named it the P58 Concept.
In 1970, Cliff Gottlob and Jack Blatchford drove a 1967 Corvette to Daytona Beach, Fla., where Gottlob and David Dooley teamed up to drive the L88-powered ‘Vette to second place in a 24-hour endurance test.
Now, 43 years later, Blatchford drove the same car onto the lawn of the 18th fairway at the prestigious Concours d’Elegance at Pebble Beach Golf Links.
