Watch The Stig Thrash a Corvette Stingray Around Top Gear's Test Track

Last week on the BBC’s Top Gear, we got to see the C7 Corvette Stingray make its first appearance on the British automotive show where it was featured for nearly 10 minutes.

The Velocity Yellow Stingray was put through its paces by co-host Richard Hammond and then it was compared and reviewed against the Porsche Cayman GTS. Of course, no Top Gear appearance is complete without seeing how the car would place on the leaderboard when driven by ace test driver “The Stig”.

While the TV version showed a split screen between the cars while the lap was being run, Top Gear has released the full video of the Corvette Stingray’s individual lap by The Stig.

[GALLERY] Black Friday! (41 Corvette photos)

It’s the final Friday in the month of February and that means it’s time for another installment of a “Black Friday” photo gallery. So here’s a random photo gallery made up of 41 black Corvettes spanning seven generations. We’re admitting in advance that the gallery does feature more black Corvette Z06s than ever before but that’s because they are more plentiful now that they are out on the streets.

2014 Corvette Stingray Beats Arctic Blast of Old Man Winter

by Bruce Troxell on February 26, 2015

Car & Driver magazine is, and has been for many years, one of the top car magazines, with a history of colorful characters (David E. Davis and Brock Yates spring to mind) and outrageous comparison articles (Pontiac GTO vs. Ferrari GTO and the GMC Syclone vs. Ferrari 348ts, to mention just two). They never seem to pass up a chance to tip over the sacred cows of the automotive world.

We weren’t too surprised then when we heard of their latest, and maybe the ultimate, comparison test — a stock 2014 Corvette Stingray vs. the arctic blast of old man winter. This was not just a run-of-the-mill cold start test. You see, C & D’s editorial headquarters are in beautiful downtown Ann Arbor, Mich. and last Friday Michigan was the coldest state in the country. Ann Arbor had an overnight low of -30°F, which was just shy of the -44°F low at the North Pole!
