Alfa Romeo Just Released a Nurburgring time for a Sedan.  Can We Get the Corvette Z06's Time Now?

Did you hear about the latest Nurburgring ring time recently released by an automotive manufacturer? No, it’s not the time for the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 which put down its laps in May, prior to a ban on manufacturer lap times. It was an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sedan which recently made headlines with a 7:39 time around the 12.9 mile Nordschleife.

Alfa Romeo released the time as well as some other performance specs during last week’s opening of the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.

So can we please have our video, press release and most important, the Nurburgring lap time for the Corvette Z06? Pretty Please?

Corvette Auction Preview: Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas 2015

Another Barrett-Jackson auction is upon us as Craig, Steve and the crew of auctioneers are in Las Vegas for their 8th annual salen in Sin City at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. The hammer will start falling tomorrow and the auction runs through Saturday.

Once again we turn to Marshall Fancher and the Corvette auction experts at VetteNVestments for a preview of Corvettes available this weekend:

We Corvette enthusiasts often refer to our cars as our “children.” Just as with our real children, though, sometimes we have to let our Corvettes go so they can soar on their own.

That’s never been truer than in the case of a Texas couple who recently donated their 1978 25th Silver Anniversary Corvette and their 2003 50th Anniversary Corvette to the National Corvette Museum.

We’ve wondered if Chevrolet would ever add an electric motor to a Corvette to increase horsepower.

Well, someone already beat them to the punch. At the Battery Show 2015 in Novi, Mich., the Genovation GXE all-electric vehicle based on a C6 Corvette Z06 made its public debut.

This is no Volt, either.

We could know by Halloween whether Chevrolet will be competing in the GTE-Pro class of the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2016.

Wayne Taylor is negotiating with Larbre Competition’s Jack Leconte about a joint effort, with the two men meeting last weekend at Circuit of The Americas to discuss the matter.
