Here’s something you don’t see every day – a Corvette Grand Sport (1960s variety) – sloshing its way along muddy roads in the wilds of Africa.
Cars like this are usually seen on a race track competing in motorsport, but this one has been modified by Tachyon Motorsport to be driven by Michiel Campagne and Mike van Thiel on Nov. 29 in Kenya during the East-African Safari Rally, which bills itself as “The World’s Greatest Rally.”
Here’s more video of the 2014 Corvette Stingray running through the autocross course during the Media Drive in Monterey in Aug 2013. Check out how well the instructor puts the Stingray through its paces as that beautiful exhaust note fills the air.
At the 2013 Corvettes at Carlisle, CorvetteBlogger spoke with Corvette seller Mike Furman from Criswell Corvette in Gaithersburg, Maryland about his 35th anniversary in the business. By the end of this year, Furman will have personally sold 3,000 Corvettes!
It’s been a while since we’ve had a Rossi 66 sighting, but here is a Pearl White Rossi 66 cruising Woodward Blvd in Detroit during August 2013′s DreamCruise.
Although the concept for the Rossi appeared first back in 2008, it took another two years for an actual car to be built. We believe this is the same Rossi 66 (or SixtySix) that made its debut at the EyesOn Design benefit in Detroit during the summer of 2010.
Last week at the C7 Corvette Stingray Media Drive event in Monterey, Chevy had an autocross course set up on a concrete tarmac just behind the airplane hanger where the entire event was staged. Three Corvettes, all 7-speed Z51 cars, were on the track. I chose the Torch Red Stingray (because everyone knows that red Corvettes are the fastest).
