Now that GM has another pop-culture hit on its hands with Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we are eagerly looking forward to the next movie to feature gratuitous product placement from Chevrolet and GM. Luckily, we won’t have to wait long as the 4th installment of the Transformers movie series is “primed” to hit theaters on June 27th.
The NCM Bash this weekend traditionally marks the rollout of the next model year Corvette, an event where you can go and see all of the new Corvette goodies up close and personal. Seminars feature a host of Corvette engineers, designers and racers speaking on just about any topic you can think of relating to our favorite car.
Maybe a work stoppage can be avoided at the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green.
At least that’s the viewpoint of the president of the United Auto Workers Union at the plant, which has assembled Corvettes since 1981, including the very popular 2014 Stingray.
Here’s a behind-the-scenes look during one of the photoshoots for the Corvette Z06 Student Showcase Challenge. Chevrolet allowed three student photographers the ability to shoot the 2015 Z06 Convertible before its introduction at the New York International Auto Show and you get to choose the winner on Facebook.
Our new best friend Gene Sanchez Leeds was in New York for the auto show and has given us permission to share his photos. We picked a set of 50 images featuring both new models of the 2015 Corvette Z06. But what you see here is only the tip of the iceberg as he has posted over 125 Corvette images on the Corvette Forum.
Top Gear Magazine recently got their hands on a 2014 Corvette Stingray and pitted it against its benchmarking target, the Porsche 911. They drove the cars throughout the UK countryside measuring the cars’ interiors, styling, and road manners against each other. If you follow the UK version of Top Gear you know they were luke-warm on the C6 Corvette. They loved the American V8 power, but lamented the transverse leaf spring suspension and even referred to the rear cargo cover as shower curtain.
The auction of the first regular retail production 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, generously donated by Chevrolet, went for $1 million at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Palm Beach, Fla. on April 12, 2014. The winning bid came from Hendrick Automotive Group Chairman and Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick, an avid Corvette collector and preservationist. Proceeds from the auction, which support the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute 32nd Annual Dinner, will benefit the renovations of the Institute’s infusion center, providing a more comfortable and soothing setting for patients to receive chemotherapy treatments.
