In the latest installment of the 2014 Corvette Stingray preview videos from Chevrolet, the focus is on the engineering and specifically the aluminum frame that is now produced in the new body shop at the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe is on display now at the Chicago Auto Show, but the crowds and the partition they have around the turntable make it hard to get up close and personal with the new sports car. Lucky for us, 360revo.com is here to help and they’ve teamed with the Chicago Auto Show to bring you a 360 degree look at the new Stingray both inside and out.
Check out this great rendering of the 2014 Corvette Stingray from our friends at the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving. Bondurant orders their Corvettes by the truckload and they are telling us the new C7 Corvette Stingray will be available for students to drive at their Chandler, AZ facility sometime this fall.
Exactly one month after the C7 was revealed in Detroit, the 2014 Corvette Stingray made its debut in Canada last night on the eve of the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto. The reveal was an exclusive event held at The Fermenting Cellar in Toronto’s Distillery District with a group of media and enthusiasts in attendance.
Yesterday when we first blogged the picture of the 2014 Laguna Blue Corvette Stingray sitting in an Arizona ditch after an accident, we knew that this was big news but we didn’t anticipate just how big it was until we saw our traffic numbers this morning.
We spoke with Monte Doran, Chevrolet’s communications manager for Corvette/Camaro this morning and he gave us the official response to our inquiry about the one-car accident.
We’re not too sure of the details yet and we put a call in to our friends at Chevy, but what you’re looking at here may be the first public accident involving a 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe. The blue Stingray was working out in Arizona with a group of other C7s but we believe this to be a one-car accident.
Last week, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco won the Super Bowl’s Most Valuable Player award and thus the keys to a brand new 2014 Corvette Stingray. As we all know too well nothing in life if free. With this in mind, Forbes and The Detroit Free Press took a closer look at how much Flacco’s “free” Corvette could cost him.
When you think about lightweight materials, you usually don’t think about them being stiffer than heavy materials.
But that’s the case with the aluminum frame that has been designed by Corvette engineers for the 2014 Stingray and is 99 pounds lighter and 57 percent stiffer than the current Corvette’s hydroformed steel rail-based frame.
