Earlier this month, a wrecked Blade Silver C7 Corvette Stingray made headlines after a picture of the decapitated Coupe went viral. We are still unaware of what actually caused the accident, but we have learned since that the Stingray’s LT1 drive train has been sold and is now at a shop in Florida.
For some, the lure of owning a Corvette is sometimes taken to extremes.
Take this 2011 Corvette Grand Sport for example.
The car must have made one heck of an impression on someone as it was stolen from a Canadian car dealer last week by being driven through a glass window.
Corvettes are known for their power.
This black 1974 Corvette is known now for its ability to knock out the power to nearly 700 customers after it collided with a utility pole over the weekend.
When Superstorm Sandy walloped the East Coast last October, the damage was widespread to homes, businesses, and boardwalks.
That damage also included lots of beautiful collector cars.
Fortunately, however, what can be destroyed can many times be restored to its previous glory.
Remember Ungrateful Girlfriend? She was the recipient of a new 2014 Corvette Stingray earlier this month and the video of her receiving the keys from her boyfriend made the rounds due to her less than enthusiastic emotional response. We understand now that she knew it was coming so hopefully she didn’t mind the good-natured fun we had at her expense in our original post.
We’ll she’s back and more enthusiastic than ever in this new video where we see her driving her Black 2014 Corvette Stingray.
Now that the 2013 ALMS race season is in the history books (along with the ALMS series itself), attention is turning to the combined United Sports Car Racing Series which will kick off in January at the Rolex Daytona 24 hour race. Corvette Racing will be featuring the racing debut of the C7.R and thanks to our friends over at MotorAuthority.com, we may have a first look at the new racing livery the 7th generation race cars will be wearing.
As a longtime Corvette driver, we know that we are happier when we are behind the wheel of America’s favorite sports car. Having the experience of spending the day driving the C7 Corvette Stingray put a smile on our face and bounce in our step for the rest of the week, but we never really quite understood why driving the new Corvette changed us physically until we saw this Reverse Test Drive video from Chevrolet.
The Corvette Stingray is one powerful car. Just ask “yuri_Stingray” who was among the first customers to receive their new C7. Unfortunately for Yuri, he picked the wrong road to test his new “headers and tune” modifications and now has to pay a hefty fine.
