In the summer heat of Le Mans, France in June of 1960, Corvette took to its first steps onto the stage of world endurance racing at the 24 Heures du Mans. Three were entered by Briggs Cunningham’s racing team and the fourth by Lloyd “Lucky” Casner’s Camoradi USA team. One of the Cunnigham cars was involved in a dramatic finish that still stirs the souls of racing fans around the world.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look during one of the photoshoots for the Corvette Z06 Student Showcase Challenge. Chevrolet allowed three student photographers the ability to shoot the 2015 Z06 Convertible before its introduction at the New York International Auto Show and you get to choose the winner on Facebook.
Our new best friend Gene Sanchez Leeds was in New York for the auto show and has given us permission to share his photos. We picked a set of 50 images featuring both new models of the 2015 Corvette Z06. But what you see here is only the tip of the iceberg as he has posted over 125 Corvette images on the Corvette Forum.
Yesterday at a special preview party for Chevrolet at the New York International Auto show, the Laguna Blue 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible was driven onto the stage and then GM’s Mark Reuss introduced the new drop-top super car, once again referring to the high performance C7 model as “The Big Nasty”.
Looking for a cool way to help introduce the new 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible, Chevrolet turned to three college student photographers from the New York area and gave them the opportunity to shoot the new drop-top supercar before its reveal. Now Chevrolet wants your help by voting for the student who best captured the Z06 Convertible and will reward the winner who ges the most votes with $5,000.
Karen Bedell has always loved muscle cars, thanks to the influence of her slightly older brother, Keith Jarvis, as they grew up in Baton Rouge.
Still, the responsibilities of ordinary life prevented the Louisiana native from buying her first Corvette until just a few years ago.
A Laguna Blue 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible was spotted on the streets of New York City today as it was unloaded from a car transport and taken inside the Jacob Javits Center for the 2014 New York International Auto Show. The show kicks off for the press tomorrow and Thursday and then opens to the public on Friday, April 18th.
On Saturday, we traveled across the state of Florida to Palm Beach to watch the first retail 2015 Corvette Z06 Coupe auctioned at Barrett-Jackson. It should come as no surprise that the winner was Chevrolet dealer and NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick who bid $1 Million for the supercharged Corvette.
