[DVR ALERT] The C7 Corvette Stingray to Appear on BBC's Top Gear TV Show

The latest trailer for the BBC’s Top Gear dropped this week and it shows that a C7 Corvette Stingray will finally get some screen time on the widely popular automotive show featuring hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James Mays.

Given the show’s previous use of Corvettes for mockery and mayhem, I would normally caution Corvette fans that it might be a mixed bag in terms of how the Corvette will be featured, but judging from the trailer, it looks like the Velocity Yellow Corvette Stingray will be shown in a straight-up comparison test against a Porsche Cayman.

Mecum Auctions will be offering a 1963 Corvette Sting Ray convertible with the 360-horsepower, fuel-injected engine at no reserve at their Rogers Classic Car Museum auction in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Corvette is part of approximately 230 cars from the Rogers Classic Car Museum that will be offered at no reserve.

The accident happened in Hygiene, Colo., at 75th Street and Colorado 66 when the driver of the westbound Blazer turned into the path of the oncoming Corvette.

Corvettes on eBay: His and Hers 1964 Project Corvette Sting Rays

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but someone could get an early start on 2016 with these two his-and-hers 1964 Corvette convertibles up for auction as a pair on eBay.

The previous owner had planned to restore the tan, automatic transmission car for his wife and the blue, four-speed car for himself, but for health reasons, now he is hoping to sell both cars to the same person.

Winter Storm Forces Closure of the Corvette Assembly Plant and National Corvette Museum

Anyone who had been hoping to see their Corvette Stingray or Z06 roll down the assembly line Tuesday will have to wait at least one more day.

That’s because of the havoc being created by winter storm Octavia that has already dumped more than 6 inches of snow from Missouri to Kentucky, forcing General Motors to shut down the second shift at the Corvette Assembly Plant on Monday night and both shifts on Tuesday. (Maintenance crews were told to report for their regular shifts, however.)

[DRV ALERT] Velocity TV's AmeriCarna Looks at Corvette Racing's DNA From L88 to C7.R

One of the cool things about the Corvette is its long family line after 62 years of production.

For instance, take these two cars featured in an AmeriCarna video on Velocity.com.

Though they’re separated by nearly 50 years, it’s easy to tell that the 1968 Corvette L88 “gave birth” to the 2015 Corvette C7.R race car.
