When the doors opened to the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit last week, visitors to the Chevrolet area were greeted with an all new display featuring six 20 foot tall transparent screens that told the stories about the cars, trucks and crossovers through video and coordinated LED lighting and music.
When the all-new C7.R Corvette race car was revealed at the North American International Auto Show last Monday, a small contingent of personnel from Corvette Racing and Pratt and Miller were on hand to witness the event.
We caught up with Doug Fehan, Corvette Racing’s Program Manager, on the show floor and spoke with him about the new race car and the inaugural race of the TUDOR United Sportscar Championship at the 24 Hours of Daytona.
General Motors and Chevrolet had a busy day Monday at the North American International Auto Show. First, they had to accept their awards for North American Car (Corvette Stingray) and Truck (Chevy Silverado) of the year, then it was over to Chevrolet display to show off the new 2015 Corvette Z06 and its evil twin, the C7.R. We’ve already taken a look at the Z06, now let’s immerse ourselves in a sea of C7.R.
Let’s put politics aside for a moment as we show these pictures of Vice President Joe Biden checking out the new 2015 Corvette Z06 at the Chevrolet display at the North American International Auto Show.
Biden is a long-time Corvette owner with a 1967 Corvette Big Block Roadster back home in his Delaware garage. So we’re pretty sure the excitement and smiles we are seeing on his face as he sits in the new Corvette Z06 and Stingray are genuine.
Chevrolet lifted the skirt Monday on the next iteration of the legendary Corvette Z06 at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. Bowing in early 2015, the C7 will pack an estimated 625hp and 635 ft-lbs of torque from its supercharged 6.2L LT4 power plant. We were on hand for the big reveal in Motown and our gallery from the event awaits you just beyond the Read More button below.
Who needs a ZR1 when you’ve already got a Z06 capable of providing even better supercar performance?
Autoblog reports this week that its sources at Chevrolet are saying that a ZR1 version of the C7 is not likely.
Here is the video from the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Monday when the Corvette Stingray was named the 2014 North American Car of the Year. CorvetteBlogger spoke to members of the Corvette Team following the awards ceremony for their reactions.
