Today was a fun day for Corvette Racing driver Oliver Gavin. This morning he sent out a cryptic tweet suggesting something special was on the way. And when that special something finally arrived, even the rainy weather in the Englishman’s home town of Yardley Hastings couldn’t dampen his spirits when he saw his Arctic White Corvette Stingray Z51 for the first time.

[GALLERY] Corvette Police Cars (44 Corvette photos)


How do you make any year or model of Corvette even more bad-ass than they already are? Put them in the hands of Johnny Law!

2016 Corvette Shaves 20 Pounds Thanks to New Body Panels by Continental Structural Plastics


One thing about Corvettes: You can count on constant innovations and improvements to the car every year.

Just check out this announcement Tuesday by Continental Structural Plastics, a supplier of body panel materials for the 2016 Stingray.

By becoming the first production model to use the TCA® Ultra Lite™ material, the new Stingray coupe has shaved 20 pounds off its total weight.

Corvette Beats Porsche to Win J.D. Power's 2015 APEAL Study


I finally took the plunge and test-drove a C7 Corvette last weekend.

My brief five minutes behind the wheel of a seven-speed Torch Red Z51 Coupe made me an instant believer in all the hoopla about Chevrolet’s latest generation of America’s Sports Car.

Going from the first year of the fifth generation (I have a 1997 Torch Red Coupe) to the first year of the seventh generation in one day showed me just how much the car has been improved, not that the C5 is a bad car by any means, though.

2016 Corvette Prices Going Up for Dealers While MSRP Remains the Same


We are just finding out that GM has done another “stealth” price hike on 2016 Corvettes effective for orders after July 17th but this is a little different from the nearly half-dozen price hikes that Corvettes buyers have seen since the initial C7 Corvette pricing was announced in April 2013.

What is unique about this price increase is that it hits dealers while keeping the Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) the same.

[ACCIDENT] Walk Around of a C7 Corvette Stingray Hit by a Drunk Driver


If there is any behavior behind the wheel of an automotive that is the scourge of our society, it’s the practice of driving while intoxicated. We’ve share more than few stories of Corvettes being hit by drunk drivers along with the damage caused by owners who were behind the wheel of their Corvettes when they shouldn’t have been.

The amount of lives and property damage that could be saved by simply handing the keys to someone else is staggering with some estimates of the costs of driving drunk ranging to more than 10,000 lives and $130+ billion each year.

So with that being said, we are sharing this video of a Corvette owner walking around and checking out the damage to his car after it was recently hit by a drunk driver.

[PICS] Vengeance Racing's 1088 Horsepower Corvette Z06


We’ve been fans of Vengeance Racing ever since we saw them leave a massive burnout in a Chevrolet’s dealership parking lot with one of the first Corvette Z06s delivered. Since then, the Georgia tuning shop has continued to make multiple changes and upgrades as they research the deep well of tuning opportunities available on the base 650 hp super car.

[ACCIDENT] C7 Corvette Z06 Crashes at the Race Track


There is no doubt that the 2015 Corvette Z06 is the most capable performance Corvette that Chevrolet has ever made. But to really experience the full bandwidth of performance available, owners are encouraged to take their car to the track. And there lies the conundrum… While the Corvette Z06 may be ready for the track, sometimes the driver isn’t which is why we have the photos of a Corvette Z06 that went off the track and into the weeds at a recent SCCA event.
