Each year in early November the automotive aftermarket heads to Las Vegas to show off all of their newest wares. While we’re still recovering from last week’s show out in Vegas we want to hear from our readers. Of the scads of custom Corvettes out in the desert last week what was your favorite?
Bloomington Gold, the iconic “Granddaddy of Corvette Shows” has officially announced that they will be hosting the 2015 gathering (and beyond) at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The dates of the event in 2015 are June 25-27, which shifts the show to a more travel-friendly Thursday-Saturday format.
Ever since attending our first SEMA show, we’ve been hooked. And it’s not hard to see why either. There’s a ton of Corvette eye candy waiting to be seen with a different take on the car at just about every booth. Then tie in the cool new Corvette-related products, hot booth girls and the excitement of Las Vegas and that just about sums up what SEMA is all about.
Armed with our trusty Canon DSLR, we went hunting for Corvettes at the 2014 SEMA show and by our count, came up nearly 70 different cars ranging from a 1958 restomod to the 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible.
This week marks a special milestone for the 2015 Corvette Z06. The Corvette Assembly Plant just completed its first retail production of the new 650 horsepower Z06, a Black coupe that will go to Chevrolet dealer and NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick.
Earlier this year, Hendrick paid one million dollars at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach to own the first retail VIN of the Corvette Z06 with the proceeds of that sale going to charity.
This 1990 Corvette is the latest victim in a divorce case that has made national headlines.
Police say a Pennsylvania man who is in the middle of divorce proceedings made good on his threat to wreck his wife’s Corvette by driving it into the Delaware river.
The Corvette Assembly Plant has come up with a great way to enjoy Corvettes and help the American Cancer Society Relay for Life at the same time.
Christine Cartwright, executive assistant to the Corvette Plant Manager and Assistant Plant Manager in Bowling Green, has created the new 2015 Corvette Z06 Stingray calendar.
While we think the Corvette Stingray is a gift to the world, some countries appear to be holding off on selling the car due to reasons we think make the Corvette great in the first place.
Take South Korea for instance.
Chevrolet announced in 2012 that with the new free-trade agreement, the Corvette would be imported into the country. But now we are learning that the Korean government’s regulations on engine noise may be holding up imports of the new C7.
The figures for the soon-to-be-on-the-road-and-track 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 are astounding.
Like going from 0 to 60 in 2.95 seconds with the new optional eight-speed automatic transmission and 3.2 seconds with the standard seven-speed manual.
Like covering the quarter-mile in 10.95 seconds with the automatic and 11.2 seconds with the manual.
But Chevrolet Performance is ready to gear it up a notch or two further for “ordinary” Stingray owners, with several aero, chassis, and suspension concept parts from the Z06 on display at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.
