Chevrolet held a media reception Monday evening on the eve of the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas where the automaker unveiled some of the concepts and special edition vehicles that will be displayed at the show beginning on Tuesday.
Opening the event was the 2009 Corvette ZR1 Blue Devil that was recovered from the National Corvette Museum’s sinkhole. The Corvette was sent back to GM in September where it underwent repairs. Tonight that mighty LS9 roared to life once again as it became the first of Chevrolet’s SEMA vehicles to take the stage.
The seventh-generation Corvette Stingray continues to attract attention from around the world.
The latest company to jump aboard the Stingray bandwagon has created a limited edition car it calls the AERO Edition C7 Corvette.
A company out of Luxembourg, ABBES Design, created the unique Stingray, which was built by MRT Engineered Performance and will be shown at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Revorix, a new player in the field of automotive customization, will premiere a modified Corvette C7 Stingray at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada from November 4 through November 7. They have selected the C7 to showcase their new line of automotive customization products that initially includes body panels and wheels.
No other Corvette garnered as much attention at last year’s SEMA Show than the Forgiato Widebody C7 Stingray. Not only did the crowds love it, but SEMA’s judges gave it the design award for best Chevrolet exterior.
It appears that others took notice of the C7 widebody and the crowds it generated. Today, we got this new picture from the automotive imagery experts at Gurnade who rendered this C7 Widebody for a potential project for the 2014 SEMA Show.
If the new Corvette Stingray isn’t quite distinctive enough for you, then you might want to check out the eBay auction going on right now for a Forgiato Widebody C7 Corvette Stingray, one of which was on display at SEMA in November.
We found a video today at www.forgiato.com that shows two of the distinctive “Aston Martin Blue” Forgiato Stingrays weaving their way down a city street. We’re not sure if the car for sale now is one of those or not.
Last week two thirds of the CorvetteBlogger wolfpack was out in Las Vegas
wandering around the desert looking for strippers and cocaine at the annual SEMA show. The SEMA show is the banner event for the automotive aftermarket industry. This year 125,000+ attendees perused the latest wares from hundreds of suppliers. Countless custom rides become the show pieces to display the newest products and industry trends. SEMA is only open to members, buyers, vendors, and media. Don’t fret if you couldn’t be there as our Corvette photo gallery awaits you just beyond the Read More button below.
Behold the Concept7 which made its debut last week at SEMA. The Concept7 is latest creation from racer Jeff Nowicki and his newly minted Nowicki Autosport Design. The Concept7 takes a stock 2014 Corvette Stingray and mixes in a healthy dose carbon fiber and other mods to create the masterpiece that awaits you after the break.
The third time proved to be the charm for Brian Hobaugh.
Hobaugh had finished third in 2011 and moved up to second in 2012 (losing by just a point) with his 1973 Camaro in the OPTIMA Batteries Ultimate Street Car Invitational before finally pulling out a victory with his family’s 1965 Corvette in the sixth annual event held in Pahrump, Nev., on Saturday.
