At the Corvette Museum’s 2014 Bash, Steve Wesoloski from Cosworth was on site to talk about the 2015 Corvette’s Performance Data Recorder. The Performance Data Recorder (also called the PDR) features a high def camera that records front-facing video of the car onto an SD card and then you can overlay a variety of telemetry data over the video. That telemetry ranges from speed and RPMs to a G-Force meter or location on the track via GPS.

If you were hoping that this was the official Go-Fast lap for the 2014 Corvette Stingray on the Nurburgring, we are sorry to disappoint.
Last year as Chevrolet was working on suspension testing for the European version of the 2014 Corvette Stingray, part of that testing took place at Germany’s Nurburgring. Since then, Corvette enthusiasts have been clammoring for video of a fast lap at the ‘ring, but according to Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter, that didn’t happen due to inclimate weather which interrupted their one and only opportunity.
Corvettes and Dodge Ram pickups are a common sight here in the States but over in Norway we have to think they are an uncommon sight. Especailly when the Corvette is smashed to hell and the Dodge Ram Pickup is laying on its side. Throw in an Audi A4 for good measure and that’s the end result from a high speed crash that recently occured outide of Oslo, Norway.

About three years ago the team at Heartland Customs approached the National Corvette Museum about their Specvette custom Corvette program. Each Specvette takes a classic C1, C2, or C3 Corvette and treats it to a full makeover incorporating all the modern bits from a late model C6. Last weekend at the NCM Bash they unveiled Specvette #1, a stunning 1958 packing a 7 liter LS7 under the hood.
Technological advances continue to amaze every day.

That might be the motto for Callaway’s third generation supercharger system that was officially unveiled a couple weeks back at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky.
Like a scene out of Steven King’s novel “Children of the Corn”, it’s not children but rather Corvette ZR1’s that will invade Indianapolis May 13th through May 18th at the Indianapolis Fairgrounds when Dana Mecum kicks off his 27th annual Spring Classic auction. Though only a portion of the consignments have been listed at this point it appears that Mecum has cornered the low mile ZR1 market and will be sending them across the block.
