This week we’re giving MVP honors to LaLa Vazquez. She’s the wife of New York Knicks Forward Carmelo Anthony and on Wednesday she surprised her star NBA husband with a black 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe for his 30th birthday.
Despite the Corvette being named after a boat, that’s doesn’t make it one as the owner of this 2014 Corvette Stingray unfortunately learned the hard way.
Harlan Charles admits he has the ultimate job for a Corvette enthusiast in his role as Corvette product and marketing manager for GM/Chevrolet.
In the span of a short six-minute interview with Bloomberg Radio’s Pimm Fox and Carol Massar on May 22, Charles manages to give a brief rundown on all the great things happening with Corvettes now and in the coming months.
That includes the special Stingray School that’s being offered to new Corvette owners for $1,000 (some $1,500 off the normal price) at the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch near Las Vegas.
Most of us will never have the chance to drive, much less own, a supercar like the 2014 Hennessey Performance HPE650 supercharged Stingray or the upcoming 2015 Corvette Z06.
But while we’re dreaming, let’s go ahead and compare what we know about these two dream cars and try to come up with a conclusion about which one we’d take.
If you want exclusivity, then the Hennessey might be your best option. Only 100 of the cars will be produced, and with an engine tune that cranks out 650 horsepower – 25 more than expected in the Z06, the Hennessey definitely will have its fans.
The 2015 Corvette Z06 convertible takes open-air driving to new heights. In addition to the high-tech 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 engine, the 8-speed automatic or the 7-speed manual transmission and the aerodynamic innovations it shares with the Z06 coupe, the convertible expands the performance bandwidth of the Z06 to include the 360-degree, top-down driving experience that only a true convertible can offer.
No other Corvette garnered as much attention at last year’s SEMA Show than the Forgiato Widebody C7 Stingray. Not only did the crowds love it, but SEMA’s judges gave it the design award for best Chevrolet exterior.
It appears that others took notice of the C7 widebody and the crowds it generated. Today, we got this new picture from the automotive imagery experts at Gurnade who rendered this C7 Widebody for a potential project for the 2014 SEMA Show.
You really hate to see this.

Somebody’s baby no more.
