Car and Driver Infographic Shows Maximum Operating Temperatures of the Corvette Z06

The 2015 Corvette Z06 is one hot car, and we’re not just talking about the way it looks and performs.

With its 6.2-liter supercharged V8, the Z06 systems produce heat, and a lot of it.

In fact, Car & Driver recently came up with an informative graphic that tells exactly how much heat the various parts of the Z06 makes when it’s being put through the paces on the track.

[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.

A 1986 Corvette wound up upside down after being struck by a 1999 Blazer Thursday morning, according to a Colorado State Patrol spokesman.

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.)
