Here’s another Corvette Stingray tuned and updated by GeigerCars of Germany. Geiger has been the go-to tuner for American cars in Europe and this new Corvette Stingray build might just be one of their best yet. Check out some pics of the new GeigerCars Corvette Stingray at the shop of their wrap partners Print Tech.
Last week on the BBC’s Top Gear, we got to see the C7 Corvette Stingray make its first appearance on the British automotive show where it was featured for nearly 10 minutes.
The Velocity Yellow Stingray was put through its paces by co-host Richard Hammond and then it was compared and reviewed against the Porsche Cayman GTS. Of course, no Top Gear appearance is complete without seeing how the car would place on the leaderboard when driven by ace test driver “The Stig”.
While the TV version showed a split screen between the cars while the lap was being run, Top Gear has released the full video of the Corvette Stingray’s individual lap by The Stig.
It’s the final Friday in the month of February and that means it’s time for another installment of a “Black Friday” photo gallery. So here’s a random photo gallery made up of 41 black Corvettes spanning seven generations. We’re admitting in advance that the gallery does feature more black Corvette Z06s than ever before but that’s because they are more plentiful now that they are out on the streets.
It isn’t easy to impress the folks at Consumer Reports, but the 2015 Corvette Stingray 3LT just did it.
The Bowling Green-assembled Corvette earned a total of 92 points in Consumer Reports’ annual rating of vehicles, highest out of all American sports cars. Runner-up was the Chevrolet Camaro SS with 66 points.

Car & Driver magazine is, and has been for many years, one of the top car magazines, with a history of colorful characters (David E. Davis and Brock Yates spring to mind) and outrageous comparison articles (Pontiac GTO vs. Ferrari GTO and the GMC Syclone vs. Ferrari 348ts, to mention just two). They never seem to pass up a chance to tip over the sacred cows of the automotive world.
We weren’t too surprised then when we heard of their latest, and maybe the ultimate, comparison test — a stock 2014 Corvette Stingray vs. the arctic blast of old man winter. This was not just a run-of-the-mill cold start test. You see, C & D’s editorial headquarters are in beautiful downtown Ann Arbor, Mich. and last Friday Michigan was the coldest state in the country. Ann Arbor had an overnight low of -30°F, which was just shy of the -44°F low at the North Pole!
We know that the Chevrolet Corvette has certain design points that are hallmarks of the model, yet look closely and you will also pick up certain design elements that are carried throughout the Chevrolet brand. One of the design hallmarks of a Chevrolet is the inclusion of five-spoke wheels. Whether it’s a Corvette Stingray, a Silverado pickup truck or a Chevrolet Cruze, most likely it comes from the factory riding on five-spoke wheels.
It’s also known that Corvette owners like to personalize their rides and one of the fastest and easiest ways to give your Corvette a new look is with a set of custom wheels. When it comes to Corvettes, HRE Wheels knows that sometimes owners want their wheels to have a little more bling, yet they want to stay with the classic stock look. If that’s how you feel, check out this Velocity Yellow Corvette Stingray riding on HRE’s RS105 forged wheels which feature the classic five-spoke design.
The South Richmond (Va.) Rotary Club is raffling off a 2015 Corvette Stingray as part of their major 2015 fundraising activities with the proceeds of the raffle going to help the Richmond Fisher House and the Families of the Wounded Fund. Both organizations offer support to families of wounded veterans while undergoing treatment.
The drawing to pick the winner will be held at the Rotary Club’s Casino Night charity fundraiser on March 7, 2015. Tickets are $100 each and sale will be limited to 1,500 tickets.
Remember when the tiny college football team went up against the high-and-mighty Division I squad and barely lost – a moral victory of sorts?
This video taken from the Performance Data Recorder of the Z06 serves as an automotive reminder of that very kind of situation.
On paper, pitting a $100,000 Corvette Z06 against a million-dollar McLaren P1 shouldn’t be much of a contest.
Last week we shared the trailer for the upcoming episode of Top Gear which features a Velocity Yellow C7 Corvette Stingray. If you want to wait for the episode to air tonight at 8:30 pm ET on BBC America, then feel free to move along. As the show already aired in the UK, there is a recording of the episode on YouTube showing Top Gear co-host Richard Hammond putting the Stingray through its paces and comparing the car to the Porsche Cayman GTS. But that’s not all that happens. The Stig gets his chance as well and we’ll have his course time after the jump.
