[VIDEO] Weather Channel's Jim Cantore Takes a Corvette Hot Lap on Michelin's Test Track


Let’s take an inside look at one reason (or four reasons, actually) why the seventh-generation Corvette Stingray handles so well.

We all know that Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter and his talented crew worked wonders making the 2014 Corvette such an improvement over previous models.

Now watch this video to see our host, Meteorologist Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel, go on a Corvette hot lap in a Laguna Blue Stingray around the Michelin Laurens Proving Grounds in South Carolina, which consists of more than a dozen special tracks and surfaces for tire and suspension system testing, driving training, and event management, all situated on 3,300 acres.

[VIDEO] 2015 Corvette Z06 Testing Again on the Nurburgring


Despite all the awards and accolades that the Corvette Z06 has received since its arrival in 2014, there has been something missing from its marketing toolbox that has become almost a requirement for any sports car that wants to play on the world stage – a timed lap at the Nurburgring.

Hopefully, we’ll be able to put a checkbox next to that item in the coming weeks as it looks like the boys from Detroit are back in Germany for another try.

Corvette Delivery Dispatch with National Corvette Seller Mike Furman for Week of May 24th


Each week, Criswell Chevrolet’s Mike Furman delivers new Corvette Stingrays and Z06s to his customers who come from all parts of the country to work with the nation’s top Corvette seller.

In this week’s dispatch, we see many new Corvettes going to new owners including a man who has dreamed of owning a Stingray since 1964. Red is very popular in the service department and a New York Callaway Corvette owner drives over 4 hours just to have Criswell service the car.

[VIDEO] Watch this Corvette Z06 Crash into a Tree


I just don’t know what to say about today’s featured video from CorvetteVideos.TV.

Putting the hammer down on public roads can be a scary thing when the nail is a 650-horsepower Corvette Z06. This wide open throttle run starts off okay with the Corvette’s beefy Michelins keeping the car the straight and true. But the second she starts to wiggle, it all goes downhill from there. Or should I say into the trees?

Collectible Corvettes: 1995 Indy 500 Corvette Pace Car


The fourth generation Corvette (C4) marked its eleventh anniversary in 1995 and the General Motors design team made the C4 more refined than ever before. Corvette took a step up in performance and sophistication with larger brake rotors, traction control and optional run-flat tires. But the big news for 1995 was the selection of Corvette to pace the Indy 500. It marked the third time that the marque would do the honors and the second time that Chevrolet would build a limited number of Pace Car replicas for the public.

[VIDEO] Jeff Gordon Drives the 2015 Corvette Z06 Indy 500 Pace Car


Most Memorial Day weekends, NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon is found preparing for the Coca-Cola 600 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. This Memorial Day weekend, he’ll be pulling the infamous “double” with a bit of a twist. While some drivers have attempted to drive both the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 on the same day, Gordon will be in Indianapolis this Sunday to drive the 2015 Corvette Z06 pace car before jetting off to Charlotte to compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup 600 mile race later in the day.

[PICS] Here is General Motors CEO Mary Barra's New 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible


It’s not every day that the Bowling Green Assembly Plant receives an order to make a car for the company CEO, but this week the workers from UAW Local 2164 assembled a 2015 Black Corvette Z06 Convertible that will be shipped to GM’s headquarters in Detroit for General Motors Chief Executive Officer Mary Barra.

If you happen to buy a new Corvette in roughly two years, you can likely thank the previous customers of the seventh-generation Stingray for your improved paint job.

The overwhelming success of the new Corvette, introduced in 2014, no doubt heavily influenced General Motors’ announcement today that it will be investing $439 million at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, most of which will go to a new Corvette paint shop that will include “substantial technology upgrades,” according to GM.

[VIDEO] Watch this Lady-Driven Corvette Z06 Hit the 10s at the Dragstrip


The perception of the Corvette as an old mans car has been out there for a while now but the new C7 Corvette has gone a long way to debunk that. Now, not only are women buying the new Corvettes, but they are taking them to track and breaking stereotypes there as well.

Today’s featured video from CorvetteVideos.TV features a female-owned 2015 Corvette Z06 with a stage 1 aero kit and the new 8-speed automatic. Watch the Laguna Blue Z06 with the vanity plate “SHE WNZ” make multiple passes in the 10s at Gateway Motorsports Park.
