2014 Corvette Stingray Beats Arctic Blast of Old Man Winter

by Bruce Troxell on February 26, 2015

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!

[CRAZY] Man Plans to Use a 2015 Corvette Z06 as his Winter Beater

When Tadge Juechter and his crew were busy coming up with the 2015 Corvette Z06, they were probably hoping for somebody just like Gene Sanchez Leeds to climb behind the wheel.

You see, Mr. Leeds does “ridiculous things with Corvettes,” as he puts it in his blog post on Road and Track.

Put another way, he doesn’t park his Corvettes on a pedestal, instead preferring to enjoy them, and enjoy them HIS way.

Wait, SCCA racing on a frozen lake? Count us in! We don’t see this Stingray take on the whole course but the video shows the painfully slow launch as the Corvette begins its run.

Filmed at the Saginaw Valley SCCA Ross Lake ice race in Beaverton MI on Jan 26th 2014. Here’s a sound clip of a stock 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray Z51 with dual mode performance exhaust. The new LT1 engine sounds great. Yes, it actually did race the ice race!

The Corvette is owned by Casey Swanseger and he sent us a link to his GoPro video showing the run on the ice course. You can watch it here.

[VIDEO] Drifting a Corvette Z06 on an Arctic Ice Track

Driving in ice and snow is an experience most drivers would just as soon forego.

But, for British journalist Chris Knapman, the experience was “technically challenging” and “at times, just plain scary,” as he recently maneuvered a Corvette Z06 around an ice track at the Laponie Ice Driving school in Sweden, just 50 miles from the Arctic Circle.

And to think, some of us Corvette drivers won’t even let our cars get wet in a rain shower!

[POLL] Spring Time is Corvette Time - Or Is It?

Article contributed by Steve Burns

As we stare out the window of CorvetteBlogger’s Motor City bureau into the cold, cloudy, gray, and wet outdoors we can’t help but wonder if the sun will ever shine again. After an extremely harsh winter, our thoughts naturally turn to visions of warm summer cruising in our Corvettes once we’ve rescued them from their wintertime naps. But when’s the appropriate time to wake them up?
