Good news for European Corvette buyers! This morning, Chevrolet issued a press release announcing the pricing for the 2014 Corvette Stingray in Europe. The new seventh-generation Corvette will be available at dealerships across Europe this fall and pricing for the Coupe will start at €69,990.
At this moment, a caravan of Corvettes is following a Chevy transport vehicle across Europe as it heads to the Geneva Motor Show. Inside that transport are both the 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe and the not-yet-seen Convertible model. However, at a recent stop in Germany where the Stingray Coupe was rolled out and displayed for enthusiasts, we got this sneak peek of the Convertible under its car cover.
There are some folks out there who say they haven’t made a “real” Corvette since the last of the chrome bumpers in 1973.
Maybe the Lithuanian owner of this totally, and we do mean totally, chromed C6 convertible is one of those people.
While perusing the Corvette Forum a couple days ago we stumbled across a thread created by member “Zuendler” who recently took his 1969 Corvette through the Italian, Austrian, and Swiss Alps. We always love hearing these stories about owners driving their cars on long journeys and his breath-taking photos intrigued us even more. No passport is needed to see more shots and a video from his incredible trip after the jump.
Sometimes it’s tough being young.
For example, just ask the players on the prestigious Manchester United soccer squad in Great Britain who are younger than 23. They won’t be able to take full advantage of a very generous offer by the team’s newest sponsor, Chevrolet, to give them the Chevy of their choice, even a shiny new Corvette.
Our Corvette brothers and sisters in the Netherlands recently hosted the 10th annual Corvette Fame car show which brought out an estimated 350 Corvettes to the Gardens of the Holland Casino at Valkenburg aan de Geul.
Like any typical Corvette show you would attend here in the states, the Corvette Fame show offers a little something for everybody. And if you like to watch videos of Corvettes with a bit of freaky-deaky Dutch electronic music in the background, then we’ve got a special treat for you.
We (and Chevrolet among others) consistently refer to the Corvette at America’s Favorite Sports car. But it’s not just America that Corvette owners love to show their pride and joy. We received an email recently from Hans Tore Tangerud who shared with us a ton of photos from the 20th Anniversary of the Norwegian Corvette club. Want to see what a first class Corvette show looks like? Check out the pics after the jump!
A 1969 Chevrolet Corvette doesn’t usually end up as a rally car in Switzerland.
But this video shows a C3 Stingray more than holding its own apparently competing in the Rallye Critérium Jurassien 2012 against a Ferrari and another small car.
