[VIDEO] Original 1963 Corvette Grand Sport Driven at the Simeone Museum

How many times have you seen a photo of one of the five 1963 Corvette Grand Sports?

But how many times have you actually heard the sound of that awesome 427 engine roaring through the gears on a road and producing between 500 and 600 horsepower?

Too many times it seems that a car’s life is basically over once it reaches a museum, where it just sits there and is admired by enthusiasts, but that’s not the case at the Simeone Museum in Philadelphia.

Quadriplegic Racer Sam Schmidt to Drive Semi-Autonomous Corvette on Long Beach Grand Prix Course

The tale of Sam Schmidt is inspiring on so many levels.

Schmidt, of course, is the former Indy driver who became a quadriplegic in 2000 after an accident at a Florida race track.

Fast forward to 2015, though, and Schmidt is miraculously back behind the wheel of a black Corvette C7 Stingray.

[PICS] Shock and Awe: Arctic White Corvette Z06 on Polished Aluminum ADV.1 Wheels

Back in February we shared photos of a Torch Red Corvette Z06 with ADV10 Track Spec Matte Black Wheels. The end result in our opinion was that just by changing the wheels, a great looking 650 hp super car looks even better with the slightly different stance generated from the larger concave black wheels.

But the black wheel look isn’t for everyone and to show how much wheels can change the look of a car, check out these pics of a new Arctic White Corvette Z06 wearing ADV 7.0 Track Spec SL wheels in polished aluminum.

Last month during an interview with Autoline, Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter flatly denied that Chevy was building a secret mid-engine sports car. But that hasn’t stopped the speculation that a new flagship mid-engine sports car wearing the cross-flag badges may be on the horizon.

To help fill in some details about the how a mid-engine Corvette might look like, Bold Ride turned to the concept designers at Hansen Arts to imagine a Corvette with the engine in the back.

Chevy Aims to Improve the Picture Quality of the Corvette’s Performance Data Recorder

Chevy Aims to Improve the Picture Quality of the Corvette's Performance Data Recorder

One of the most popular options on the 2015 Corvette Stingray and Z06 has to be the new Performance Data Recorder.

The Corvette PDR development was born out of Cosworth’s many years of working with the Corvette Racing Team to supply and support the full suite of motorsport electronics such as data loggers and Pi Toolbox analysis tools.

Discussions between Cosworth and General Motors about taking these racing products to the Chevrolet Corvette road car developed, and it soon became evident there was a tremendous opportunity to be first to market with a fully integrated road going Performance Data Recorder.

Since the PDR became available on 2015 models, feedback from Corvette customers and the media alike has been overwhelmingly positive, and the PDR picked up four best product awards at the CES show.

The two occupants in a C6 Corvette that crashed in Woodstock Sunday morning probably wish they were at the legendary rock concert instead.
