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.

The new Corvette Stingray has been earning accolades from the press ever since it was unveiled earlier this year.
It’s only natural that the General Motors Assembly Plant in Bowling Green where America’s Sports Car has been built since 1981 would share in that glory, too.
Earlier this month the Bowling Green Assembly Plant was named Manufacturer of the Year by the Kentucky Association for Manufacturers (KAM) at the 2013 KAM Manufacturer and Employee of the Year Awards ceremony.
Earlier this week we had the privilege to tour the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, KY to see how the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray is made. While we were there, we spoke with plant manager Dave Tatman about the changes to the plant, C7 production, quality assessments and resumption of public tours which begin on October 14th.
Chevrolet announced on Wednesday that Bowling Green’s Corvette Assembly Plant will resume public tours of the facility beginning Monday, October 14th. The tours give Corvette enthusiasts and the general public an up-close opportunity to see how the all-new C7 Corvette Stingray is built.
