Here’s a pretty funny video of two guys in a old VW who chase down a pre-production Corvette Z06 prototype as it pulls into a Walmart in Yuma, AZ. The driver of the Corvette greets the two and answers some basic questions before heading inside, although we found it interesting that he further confuses them by referring to the Corvette by its Z07 equipment package instead of the model designation which is indeed the Z06.
Wait, SCCA racing on a frozen lake? Count us in! We don’t see this Stingray take on the whole course but the video shows the painfully slow launch as the Corvette begins its run.
Filmed at the Saginaw Valley SCCA Ross Lake ice race in Beaverton MI on Jan 26th 2014. Here’s a sound clip of a stock 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray Z51 with dual mode performance exhaust. The new LT1 engine sounds great. Yes, it actually did race the ice race!
The Corvette is owned by Casey Swanseger and he sent us a link to his GoPro video showing the run on the ice course. You can watch it here.

It doesn’t come with a trophy, but the new Corvette Stingray can still feel pretty good about itself after earning some pretty high praise from the folks at Autocar.co.uk.
“As car enthusiasts, we love the new Corvette Stingray,” says Autocar’s Steve Sutcliffe. “We think so much of it, in fact, that we’ve lined it up here beside the very best sports cars that Europe can offer, each of which has been handpicked to gauge just how good the new seventh-generation Corvette has become.”
The Chicago Auto Show opened on Thursday for the media and now we can check out some photos of the black Corvette Stingray driven by Scarlett Johansson’s character Natasha Romanov AKA Black Widow in Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
We know that Joe Biden loves his 1967 Corvette. But after seeing the new Corvette Stingray and Z06 at last month’s NAIAS, we’re pretty sure that the country’s vice president has a severe case of Corvette Fever for the new models.
Our Corvette-loving Vice President was captured on video talking to the UAW Legislative Conference on Wednesday. After highlighting several new autos from the different automakers, Biden ask the crowd to indulge him as he makes some comments about the new Corvette Stingray and the upcoming Corvette Z06.
During last year’s filming of the second installment of Marvel Entertainment’s Captain America, we learned that one of the main characters would be driving a new Corvette Stingray. But you won’t have to wait for the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4th to see the new Corvette. The movie car will be make its world premiere along side 14 other Chevrolet cars and trucks at the Chicago Auto Show later this week.

Congratulations to best selling author, financial expert, and nationally syndicated talk show host Dave Ramsey. He and his wife Sharon took delivery of their new 2014 Corvette Stingray Tuesday through the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY.
General Motors released their monthly figures this morning for January’s new car deliveries which showed 2,261 Corvettes were sold. In direct comparison, only 908 new Corvettes were sold in January 2013. The January 2014 figure is the lowest number of Corvettes delivered since last September when the new C7 Corvettes started shipping and the dip in sales is most likely a combination of the plant being closed for the holidays as well as the winter weather that covered much of the United States last month.
