[PICS] Sneak Peek of a 2016 Corvette Stingray Shows New Color and Features

We just completed Day One of our three days at the National Corvette Museum for the annual Bash event. No 2016 Corvettes were on display today and several potential 2016s had the C7.R car cover we first spotted at SEMA last year. So you can imagine our excitement when Bowling Green Plant Manager Jeff Lamarche showed up at the end of the day with a 2016 Corvette Stingray in the new Corvette Racing Yellow.

The guys at the Texas tuning shop of Late Model Racecraft have really made a name for themselves over the last few years. In a new video, we see LMR’s Steven Fereday introducing their latest project – a custom-wrapped Corvette Z06 from Atlanta Custom Wraps in the shop for LMR’s Stage II Corvette Z06 package. With the upgrades, the Corvette dynos at 750 rwhp on boost only and with the nitrous system, the Z06 generates 1,000 hp!

New 2016 Corvette Colors Revealed!

Our friend Rick Conti at Ohio’s Coughlin Chevrolet has been Johnny-on-the-spot when it comes to spotting the color changes coming on the new 2016 Corvette.

Rick was the first to notice that Velocity Yellow was on a major constraint for 2015 Corvettes earlier this month and that a possible color change was coming. Then he found the RPO code for a new Yellow in GM’s Order System. Now, Rick is attempting to break the internet with the reveal of the new 2016 color chips and their new names.

[VIDEO] Watch the Corvette Z06's Fuel Gauge Drop During a 185 MPH Top Speed Run

My 16-year-old son Chris just got a GMC Sierra pickup as his first vehicle.

Boy, how he loves that truck, but we like to joke that it gets nearly 8 gallons to the mile. It’s not quite that bad, but when Chris pulls into a gas station, the attendants give us a standing ovation. I think we’re singlehandedly responsible for half of Racetrac’s profit margin last quarter.

That’s one reason we can sympathize with John Hennessey as the supertuner floors this 2015 Corvette Z06 with the new 8-speed automatic transmission to get a baseline performance reading on what she’ll do before he performs his magic under the hood.

The Corvette was part of the Hartley Collection and it sold on Saturday afternoon for $88,000 which includes the 10% buyers commission.

The National Corvette Museum (NCM), along with the Grand Sport Registry and the ZR-1 Net Registry will be hosting the C4 Gathering on May 14-16.

The Gathering is open to everyone interested in fourth generation Corvettes built between 1984 and 1996. Activities will include seminars, a special guided plant/museum tour, and a NCM Motorsports Park track day, in addition to information specific to the C4 Corvette.
