We’ve always been impressed with the work that comes from German tuner GeigerCars who specialize in tuning American cars, but their latest work on a C7 Corvette Z06 may be among their best yet. The stock 650 horsepower Corvette is already a fantastic blank canvas straight from Bowling Green, but check out Geiger’s power upgrades and the beautiful use of carbon fiber over the car as well.
During its first year of production, the C7 Z06 exceeded expectations and nearly 9,000 examples of the 650 hp supercharged Corvette exist. So for owners looking to add a little personalization to their rides, opting for a set of custom wheels may be the answer.
HRE Wheels just wrapped up a photoshoot with a Daytona Orange Sunrise Corvette Z06 wearing their new RS100M custom wheels and the results are pretty amazing.
While Labor Day weekend typically signals the end of summer, temperatures are still high and sometimes it seems the hot summer days can only be chased away by a quick run to the neighborhood ice cream shop.
But for one C7 Corvette Stingray owner, a routine trip to town was made more memorable for what happened outside shop.
Super Chevy has a blow-by-blow story behind the amazing 2014 Corvette Stingray pushed to the limit to become the first 1,000-horsepower C7 by Vengeance Racing early in 2014.
The saga begins with the purchase of one of the first Stingrays sold to the public back in November 2013. This Stingray should have known what was in store for it from the first day when Ron Mowen of Vengeance said the heck with the recommended break-in period and did a wild burnout in the parking lot of the dealership.
Here’s one way for a normally underdog Dodge Durango to win a “race” with a C7 Corvette Stingray.
After rear-ending this Blade Silver Corvette, the Durango just soared through the air and wound up in front of the Stingray in Highland Park, Ill., on Monday afternoon.
Okay, when I first heard that someone had transplanted the C7 Corvette’s high intensity LED lights onto a widebody C6 Corvette, I was a bit skeptical. But after seeing photos of the C6 with the grafted C7 headlights, I am totally sold on this mod.
It’s the first of the month and today General Motors reported the sales report from August 2015. For the month, GM sold 2,725 Corvettes for a 1.7% gain over sales of 2,679 Corvettes during the same month in 2014. For the Calendar Year to Day (CYTD), a total of 23,826 Corvettes have been delivered between January and the end of August. This is 1.5% ahead of where we were last year with 23,483 Corvettes delivered.
Did we just witness a true act of generosity or just another staged video for the Internet?
That’s what we were wondering after watching this video that shows a rich kid apparently pull up to a random stranger and hand the man the keys to his Arctic White Corvette Stingray.
It’s been a little while since we’ve browsed custom wheels for the Corvette so when I saw this C7 Corvette Stingray in Arctic White set up with custom Wheels by XO, I wanted to take a closer look.
And I’m glad I did. Not only do the XO Verona Wheels look great in Matte Brushed Silver against the Arctic White Corvette Stingray, I found the price to be surprisingly affordable.
As we continue to show off examples of the new 2016 options, here is one of the first production Corvettes to wear the new Long Beach Red. The new color just started production a couple weeks back and our friend Rick “Corvette” Conti at Coughlin Chevrolet was among the first dealers to get a Corvette Z06 with the new color.
