Now that the 2013 ALMS race season is in the history books (along with the ALMS series itself), attention is turning to the combined United Sports Car Racing Series which will kick off in January at the Rolex Daytona 24 hour race. Corvette Racing will be featuring the racing debut of the C7.R and thanks to our friends over at MotorAuthority.com, we may have a first look at the new racing livery the 7th generation race cars will be wearing.
Rumors & Innuendo
New spy photos published today by Autoweek appears to reveal many new details regarding the highly anticipated 2015 Corvette Z07. The Corvette in the photos are well covered in camouflaged fabric, but we were still able to catch a glimpse of the how the new front end might look as well as the rear brake cooling ducts. Plus, this Corvette has some really big brakes!
Chevrolet Europe posted a tweet on Friday about the 2014 Corvette Stingray undergoing suspension testing on the wet track at the Nurburgring. We looked at the photo and then enlarged it for a better view. Low and behold, there’s a GoPro HD Camera mounted low and behind the driver’s front tire!
Over the last two weeks we’ve seen a couple videos of the 2014 Corvette Stingray working out on the Nurburgring. One of our posts on Facebook wondered aloud if GM vehicle dynamics engineer and Corvette Track Rat Jim Mero was in Germany. Based on these photos from Chevrolet Europe, we believe the answer is yes.
Autoblog has a gallery of spy photos from the guys at KGP Photography that appear to show a camouflaged Corvette Z07 Convertible prototype undergoing testing at an unnamed facility. The Corvette is well covered with both the white/black swirls on the body and the blanket-covers that we remember well from the testing of the Corvette Stingray in 2012. However, there are some visual clues that do lead us to believe this is the high performance version of the C7 Corvette.
Here’s a welcomed sight through the fence at the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green. Two rows of 2014 Corvette Stingray convertibles in various colors all lined up and looking ready for some sunshine.
The internet’s abuzz tonight after a video has surfaced showing a Laguna Blue 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 testing on the famous Nurburgring. The Corvette is shown making some fast runs through several turns with a helmeted driver and a co-pilot. Could it be that GM Engineers are doing some testing in Germany?
