An excuse for us to finally post these awesome gifs!
We’ve talked about the Forgiato Widebody C7 Corvette Stingrays before because frankly, we think they’re cool. And while some other auto sites and Corvette traditionalists continue to bash these cars, we hold them up as great examples of the what can be done with a base Corvette Stingray when you have time, money and a vision.
Well, nobody’s perfect – not even the highly acclaimed 2014 Corvette Stingray.
At least in the eyes of one European auto journalist, Jethro Bovingdon, who seems to have mixed emotions about the seventh-generation Corvette in his video post test for EVO magazine.
Ya, in Sweden!
That’s where you’ll find one of the most unlikeliest Black and Whites around.
Of course we’re talking about this 2014 Corvette Stingray, dressed in black with white doors and the word “POLICE” emblazoned on the doors and hood.
Who would have thought there would ever be a time when we’d be talking about great fuel economy with a high-performance car with an automatic transmission?
But these aren’t ordinary times, at least when it comes to the seventh-generation Corvette.
Two great high performance Corvettes recently debuted in Europe: the Z06 and the C7.R racing vehicle. http://www.chevroleteurope.com/corvette
They were developed in parallel and provide unique benefits to both race car drivers and driving enthusiasts.
Race car driver Oliver Gavin, Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter, and Technical Communications Manager Patrick Herrmann discuss these two great vehicles.

The Corvette Stingray has been in production for roughly eight months now and we’re starting to see some owners and shops show off their custom work. One shop that is well known for their over-the-top designs and fabrications is West Coast Customs, who recently showed off a completed supercharged Corvette Stingray on their facebook page.
One of the most talked about features on the 2015 Corvette Z06 is the new high performance 8-speed automatic transmission.
It was back in May of 2011 that we first learned that GM was developing an eight-speed automatic transmission for its high performance cars. But one of the things we didn’t know was that the Hydra-Matic 8L90 would be designed from the ground up specifically to handle the more than 635 lb-ft of torque generated by the 2015 Corvette Z06.
Here’s some great news for C7 Corvette owners who want to experience the full capabilities of the 7th generation sports car in a safe environment.
Chevrolet and the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch are offering a special two day program for $1,000 for new 2014 Corvette Stingray owners – a discount of $1,500 off the rate for the standard program.
