Police have identified the driver of a C6 Corvette involved in an hour-long high-speed chase in Los Angeles Friday night as 51-year-old Brian Newt Beaird of Oceanside, Calif.
Beaird was behind the wheel of the silver Corvette in Cudahy in east LA about 9:30 p.m. Friday when L.A. County sheriff’s deputies tried to stop him because he was driving recklessly.
Now that the dust is beginning to settle with Chevrolet’s launch of the 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe, it’s now time to turn our attention to the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertibles that are just now being delivered to customers.
Last week we had the opportunity to drive the new Stingray Convertible through the mountains and high desert country surrounding Palm Springs, CA. The roads and weather were perfect for top down cruising so recline your seats and adjust your lumbar as we are going for a test drive in the new 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible!
It was just last week that Chevrolet announced the 2015 Corvette Z06 will make its debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and now they are confirming that Corvette Racing’s new C7.R will be there as well. The C7.R will be shown in full race livery and then will depart to Florida to take part in the Tudor United SportsCar Racing’s inaugural race at the Rolex 24 of Daytona on January 25-26th.
This yellow C4 Corvette crashed Sunday evening into the middle of a home at Richmond Street and Ridgedale Avenue on the north side of Odessa, Texas.
Rumors have been going around for months that the C7 Corvette would eventually have an improved automatic transmission.
Based on a technical paper summary previewed on the Web by the Society of Automotive Engineers over the weekend, a new eight-speed automatic will be available for the Stingray, perhaps as early as the 2015 model year.
