It was just last week that Chevrolet announced the 2015 Corvette Z06 will make its debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and now they are confirming that Corvette Racing’s new C7.R will be there as well. The C7.R will be shown in full race livery and then will depart to Florida to take part in the Tudor United SportsCar Racing’s inaugural race at the Rolex 24 of Daytona on January 25-26th.
We’ve already talked about some of the high end Corvettes being offered at the January 2014 auctions including a 1967 L88 coupe, the George Barris Asteroid Corvette, and The Rebel L88 racer. Potentially the most significant Corvette up for grabs next month is The Real McCoy 1956 racer. If it wasn’t for this C1, the aforementioned ‘vettes may not have even existed.
We heard that the Corvette Racing team was in Sebring for a private testing session this week and now pics have emerged showing the C7.Rs in camouflage on the familiar blue/white circuit in Central Florida. It’s amazing how much the race cars resemble the production versions and I sure can’t wait to see what they can do in their inaugural race at Daytona next month.
More than a year of work has transformed this once-ordinary 1964 Corvette coupe into a prize-winning restomod, says owner Patrick Lamberton of Chalfont, Bucks County, PA.
Modifications include a 2013 Chevy fuel-injected LS3 engine, good for 436 horsepower, as well as suspension upgrades from a 1996 Corvette in the front and a 1986 Corvette in the rear. Lamberton says The Vette Shop in Plumsteadville, Pa., performed the drive train and suspension changes.
This yellow C4 Corvette crashed Sunday evening into the middle of a home at Richmond Street and Ridgedale Avenue on the north side of Odessa, Texas.
Rumors have been going around for months that the C7 Corvette would eventually have an improved automatic transmission.
Based on a technical paper summary previewed on the Web by the Society of Automotive Engineers over the weekend, a new eight-speed automatic will be available for the Stingray, perhaps as early as the 2015 model year.
Get ready for some beautiful sounds when you watch this video of Corvette legend John Heinricy test driving a 2014 Corvette Stingray with the Hennessey HPE600 package.
The last four minutes are pure music to Corvette enthusiasts as Heinricy, who has just been named one of three inductees to the 2014 Corvette Hall of Fame, lets the modified Z51 do the talking as he puts it through the paces on a track outside of Houston, Texas at the Hennessey Performance Group’s facility.
