There’s no higher calling than taking care of our veterans after they’ve left the service and now Chevrolet is teaming up with a former President George W. Bush with just that goal in mind.
Oliver Gavin Says He’s Lapped the Nurburgring in the 2019 Corvette ZR1…And Will Be Back in 2018 To Do It Again!
All summer long we followed reports that the Corvette Team was testing the 2019 Corvette ZR1 on the Nurburgring. We marveled at the big sound and the look of the special “Laguna Pipes” to help deflect the monster LT5’s exhaust note. While most of the development and driving was done by Jim Mero and Chevrolet engineering, it looks like they brought in a professional “ringer” for additional feedback.
The world is abuzz with the 2019 Corvette ZR1, producing 755 horsepower and a top speed greater than 210 mph, that will go on sale next spring.
While these cars will be rare, mostly because of their anticipated price north of $120,000, they won’t be as rare as one of the original ZR1s produced from 1970 to 1972.
In fact, the rarest ZR1 of them all is up for sale on Hemmings – it’s the only ZR1-equipped 1971 convertible ever made by Chevrolet.
Just because the Corvette ZR1 was introduced in Dubai on Sunday doesn’t mean that all development testing has been completed. That fact was highlighted by a group of three 2019 Corvette ZR1s wearing camouflage on their front and rears that were spotted testing in South Florida. Photos of the prototypes were captured by a Redditor named Coonark00 who filed the following post:
Long before there was a Paris Hilton or a Kim Kardashian, there was Angelyne.
Thanks to a mysterious LA billboard featuring just her name and a suggestive photo back in 1984, Angelyne quickly turned into one of the original celebrities who became famous for being famous. She’s well known in our circles for driving pink Corvettes.
Quadriplegic racing legend Sam Schmidt continues to break barriers in his high-tech Corvette Z06.
During a Veterans Day program Saturday at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, Schmidt smashed his old speed record by hitting 190 mph on a two-mile-long runway.
If you like the look of the C2 Corvette but lament that the 1963-67 Sting Rays didn’t come with modern technology, then you might want to consider buying one of the new Devilrays.
This 21st century interpretation of the classic Corvette Sting Ray – designed by Gene Langmesser and his N2A Motors (No 2 Alike) – was unveiled to a lucky few during the recent SEMA show in Las Vegas, and the first four Devilrays were even ordered that night.
A C7 Corvette Grand Sport got an unexpected workout Sunday, ramming underneath an SUV and lifting it more than two feet off the ground.
The accident happened about noon Sunday in Huntington Beach, California when the Corvette ran underneath a Toyota Highlander.
It’s been a couple days now from the big reveal of the 2019 Corvette ZR1. Chevrolet has allowed various journalists and automotive outlets to film some walkarounds of the car while it was set up for the private reveal party in Dubai City. This, in turn, has given us multiple views of the new 755-horsepower Corvette and there are a few design points on the car we wanted to share.
Happy Monday Corvette peeps!
The days are getting very short indeed and we’re just a week and a half away from the beginning of the Holiday season. I was up early Saturday morning and did a Cars and Coffee event, my first in several months. Hopefully, you were able to something “Corvette-related” over the weekend as well!
