We’ve all pointed excitedly whenever we spot a truckload of Corvette Stingrays coming down the interstate, all dressed up in their protective white covers.
Now, here’s the inside story about those “fancy suits.”
General Motors has joined forces with CoverCar, part of an Italy-based company, to create custom covers for some GM vehicles, including the 2014 Corvette Stingray, Cadillac ELR, and the new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra HD pickup trucks.
General Motors announced this week that they have begun construction of a state-of-the-art facility for race engine design and development that will also include an electric motor laboratory and a gear center. The new building is expected to be opened and in use by mid-2015 and completed by early 2016.
The Center represents GM’s continuing investment in motorsports that stems from the time-tested belief that racing is the ultimate proving ground for much of the technology in the vehicles that GM sells.
