Chevrolet Europe posted a tweet on Friday about the 2014 Corvette Stingray undergoing suspension testing on the wet track at the Nurburgring. We looked at the photo and then enlarged it for a better view. Low and behold, there’s a GoPro HD Camera mounted low and behind the driver’s front tire!

Here’s a great picture that shows just how fast the 1400-car shipping lot at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant is filling with brand spanking new 2014 Corvette Stingrays. We understand that the Quality Control process has been very tight, but with this many Stingrays lined up and ready to go, it most likely means that the QC isn’t finding many issues and production is ramping up.
How much horsepower will the C7’s new V8 engine be able to produce on the dyno?
Well, Jessi Lang with The J-Turn web show for Motor Trend wanted to find out so she took a 2014 Corvette Stingray to the K&N facility. With Robert “Pops” Calles, product tech with K&N, behind the wheel, the blue Z51 was taken to the limit on the dyno, literally.
