One of the innovative ways that Chevy is marketing the all-new Corvette Stingray is by getting people behind the wheel to experience the car for themselves on a racetrack. That’s the goal of the invitation-only Stingray Precision Drive Event which held its second event over the weekend in Palm Beach, Florida.
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.
A Thursday afternoon crash of a classic C2 Corvette into a tree left an unidentified man in serious condition in Lunenberg, Mass.
The man apparently veered off the road in a red 1960 Corvette, striking a tree on Lancaster Avenue.
Chalk up another victory for the 2014 Corvette Stingray: the 2014 Yahoo Autos Car of the Year.
While other awards may involve the technical aspects of the latest and greatest from Chevy, Yahoo Autos admits that “you’ll have to look elsewhere for physics-class style analytics and G-force inducing skid pad tests.”
