Last weekend we kicked off our pre-turkey day festivities by hitting up the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN) in Chicago. For 2 days hundreds of muscle cars, Corvettes, customs, and racers took over the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont in what’s become one of the best indoor shows around. Click past the jump to see some of our favorites from MCACN 2014.
Those crazy guys over at Motor Trend’s Roadkill have fulfilled one of their dreams now.
And it sure was a lot of fun in the process.
David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan, in their latest episode for MotorTrend.com, finished the hack job on a C4 Corvette they started four years ago, in the process seeing what it would do against a 2014 Lingenfelter Corvette Stingray.
When Chevrolet launched the C7 Corvette, the American carmaker wanted the world to know how great a sports car it had built.
Apparently the world is getting the message.
For example, the 2014 Corvette Stingray has been named “Best Performance Coupe” in the Middle East Car of the Year awards.
If you’re one of the fortunate people to actually get to buy a Z06 but still aren’t satisfied with its 650 horsepower and 650 ft-lb of torque, then you just might want to call Mr. Hennessey.
The 2015 Corvette Z06 was introduced at the 2014 North American International Auto Show back in January which seems like a lifetime ago. But on Monday, a bevy of auto magazines finally released their long anticipated reviews of the most powerful and track capable Corvette that Chevrolet has ever produced.
One of reviewers of the new 650 horsepower super car was Motor Trend’s Carlos Lago who filmed the experience for MT’s Ignition webcast which appears on their YouTube channel.
If a new Corvette Z06 is on your holiday wish list, you may want to give want to give the jolly old elf (no, not your uncle Leo, Santa Claus) a helping hand. A Z06 is tough to wrap and might not easily fit into Santa’s sleigh, not to mention giving Dancer, Prancer et al. a tough flight. Rather than ask Santa, the National Corvette Museum has better idea for you.
The Marvel Comics Universe seems to have a thing for Corvettes. First there was the Black Widow’s Corvette Stingray from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And then when Agents of SHIELD came to FOX, one of the stars of the show is Agent Coulson’s classic red Corvette named Lola.
Now another Agent of SHIELD will be driving a Corvette Stingray, but not on TV. Actress Ming-Na Wen who plays Agent Melinda May on the show was just surprised with a red Corvette Stingray from her husband on her birthday.
Yesterday we posted a video of several Corvettes Z06s at Road Atlanta and while many will end up at the track now and then, most will be driven on the street. Here’s an Arctic White Corvette Z06 hitting the streets!
The Corvette Z06 is just at home with casual driving on the streets as it is on the track. Here’s a 2015 Corvette Z06 in Arctic White with the Z07 Performance Package cruising around on the streets.
