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

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?

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

Here’s a picture that is a sad sight for a Corvette owner, but one that also makes my blood boil at the same time.

It shows another C7 Corvette Stingray left high and dry after thieves steal the wheels off the car, leaving it balanced on what looks like a landscaping rock or stone.

Couple Donates Two Anniversary Corvettes to the National Corvette Museum


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.

Genovation GXE Corvette EV Breaks Cover at Battery Show 2015


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.

Don’t expect to see too many C7 Corvettes Z06s in professional drifting competitions anytime soon.

We’ve been documenting Forgiato’s love affair with the C7 Corvette since the beginning when a widebody Stingray was built for the 2013 SEMA show. Over the last two years, we’ve seen about a dozen different versions of the widebody Stingray built in all kinds of colors and wheel selections.

Now that Chevy is building their own “widebody” in the form of the Corvette Z06, we wondered what Forgiato would have in store for the 650 horsepower super car. As these pictures show, we are not disappointed.

We’re not sure the C7 Corvette Stingray could be made to look any better, but that doesn’t stop people from trying. Check out this photoshop work on the front of a Corvette Stingray that gives it a much more aggressive look.
