[PICS] Sneak Peek of a 2016 Corvette Stingray Shows New Color and Features

We just completed Day One of our three days at the National Corvette Museum for the annual Bash event. No 2016 Corvettes were on display today and several potential 2016s had the C7.R car cover we first spotted at SEMA last year. So you can imagine our excitement when Bowling Green Plant Manager Jeff Lamarche showed up at the end of the day with a 2016 Corvette Stingray in the new Corvette Racing Yellow.

New 2016 Corvette Colors Revealed!

Our friend Rick Conti at Ohio’s Coughlin Chevrolet has been Johnny-on-the-spot when it comes to spotting the color changes coming on the new 2016 Corvette.

Rick was the first to notice that Velocity Yellow was on a major constraint for 2015 Corvettes earlier this month and that a possible color change was coming. Then he found the RPO code for a new Yellow in GM’s Order System. Now, Rick is attempting to break the internet with the reveal of the new 2016 color chips and their new names.

The National Corvette Museum (NCM), along with the Grand Sport Registry and the ZR-1 Net Registry will be hosting the C4 Gathering on May 14-16. The 2015 Gathering will be celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the LT5-powered ZR-1 setting a number of new world speed records, including averaging 175 mph for 24 hours.

The Gathering is open to everyone interested in fourth generation Corvettes built between 1984 and 1996. Activities will include seminars, a special guided plant/museum tour, and a NCM Motorsports Park track day, in addition to information specific to the C4 Corvette.

The 2015 National Corvette Museum Bash is April 23rd-25th

The National Corvette Museum’s 2015 show season kicks off this week with their annual Bash. Attendees at the Bash will get a first look at the 2016 Corvette Stingray and Z06, attend any number of interesting seminars as well as participate in one of several road tours and other miscellaneous activities.

In addition to getting up close and personal with the 2016 Corvettes, attendees can hear all the dirty details of the next model year straight from members of GM’s engineering team who will be on hand to answer any of your questions.

Under the progressive leadership of Executive Director Wendell Strode and his enthusiastic staff of Corvette aficionados, the National Corvette Museum (NCM) has announced the creation of its new Vehicle Maintenance and Preservation Department. The new organization will be responsible for maintaining and preserving the ever-increasing number of NCM-owned vehicles. The 12 cars donated in 2013 plus the 13 cars the NCM received in 2014 bring to 62 the total number of cars now owned by the Museum.
