You already know about the longstanding complaints regarding the seats in the previous generation Corvette and that new seats were one of the priorities that GM set out to rectify in the new C7 Corvette. Automotive journalists and new owners will most likely agree that the Stingray’s new seats are the best that have ever been put into America’s favorite sports car.
Bloomberg’s Matt Miller went out Detroit where he met with C7 seat designer Shawn Meagher who not only showed him how the new seats were designed but also took him out to Milford’s Proving Grounds for some fun on Black Lake to demonstrate how much more supportive the new seats are.
With the 12 Hours of Sebring approaching this Saturday, Chevrolet published this video today featuring a look at Corvette Racing’s C7.R and the Daytona Prototypes Corvettes fared at the Rolex 24 in Daytona.
From our Corvette Image Tumblr, we came across this Corvette Z06 chasing a rider on a Triumph motorcycle. The Corvette Z06 is an actual police car used by the Wake County Sheriffs office in North Carolina.
The GIF comes from a segment on Top Gear USA featuring Tanner Faust in the Z06 racing the street bike through an obstacle course. Click here to watch the full video on our Facebook page.
During the recovery efforts this week at the National Corvette Museum, GM sent down a film crew to document the excavation of the first three Corvettes from Sky Dome sinkhole. Here is their video featuring our NCM friends Wendell Strode, Adam Boca and Chevy Communications guru Monte Doran.
Construction workers surprised us yesterday by going after two more Corvettes. In addition to the 1992 1 Millionth Corvette that was pulled from the sinkhole inside the National Corvette Museum’s Sky Dome, workers also were able to snag the 1984 PPG Corvette Pace Car (or at least most of it).
The lifted 4 x 4 Corvette: It’s the perfect antithesis to everything America’s sports car has represented since 1953. They’re existence twists your mind like an episode of ABC’s Lost or the first time you heard Mike Tyson talk. We hadn’t seen one of these brutes turn up online for a while until this yellow C3 showed up at Crusin’ the Coast on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Chevrolet built 46,558 Corvettes for the 1976 model year. Of those, 3,389 were painted Bright Yellow. 0 were 4 wheel drive.
