One of the custom Corvettes we were anxious to see in person at the SEMA show comes from a new player in the Corvette aftermarket. Revorix is a new company that has deep roots in Japan and now they have set their sights on America. For the SEMA Show, they brought a 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible to showcase their new product line of functional aerodynamic parts for America’s favorite sports car.
Maybe the “Cake Boss” should stick to drinking non-alcoholic eggnog.
The 37-year-old star of the TLC reality TV show faces charges of driving while intoxicated and driving with impaired ability after cops saw him driving erratically along the streets of New York City in his 2014 Corvette Stingray around 1 a.m. Thursday.
One reason why we like our friends at Purifoy Chevrolet in Fort, Lupton, Colorado so much is that they are not afraid to shake up conventional wisdom by creating and selling their own custom Corvettes.
Those custom Corvettes fall under the “P-Series” designation at Purifoy and those in the know will know that these are not ordinary vettes.
Now there is a new “P-Series” Corvette available from Purifoy and it’s like no Stingray you’ve seen offered before from a Chevrolet dealership.
Each year in early November the automotive aftermarket heads to Las Vegas to show off all of their newest wares. While we’re still recovering from last week’s show out in Vegas we want to hear from our readers. Of the scads of custom Corvettes out in the desert last week what was your favorite?
Maybe this driver should have stuck with the fancy technology that Chevrolet has built into the seventh-generation Corvette.
Instead, he turned the traction control off and over corrected as he was drifting around a corner heading into a straightaway.
The Stingray started doing a zig-zag dance, slid sideways into barriers, and wound up on its passenger side, no doubt inflicting thousands of dollars in damage.
Ever since attending our first SEMA show, we’ve been hooked. And it’s not hard to see why either. There’s a ton of Corvette eye candy waiting to be seen with a different take on the car at just about every booth. Then tie in the cool new Corvette-related products, hot booth girls and the excitement of Las Vegas and that just about sums up what SEMA is all about.
Armed with our trusty Canon DSLR, we went hunting for Corvettes at the 2014 SEMA show and by our count, came up nearly 70 different cars ranging from a 1958 restomod to the 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible.
The Corvette Assembly Plant has come up with a great way to enjoy Corvettes and help the American Cancer Society Relay for Life at the same time.
Christine Cartwright, executive assistant to the Corvette Plant Manager and Assistant Plant Manager in Bowling Green, has created the new 2015 Corvette Z06 Stingray calendar.
While we think the Corvette Stingray is a gift to the world, some countries appear to be holding off on selling the car due to reasons we think make the Corvette great in the first place.
Take South Korea for instance.
Chevrolet announced in 2012 that with the new free-trade agreement, the Corvette would be imported into the country. But now we are learning that the Korean government’s regulations on engine noise may be holding up imports of the new C7.
The figures for the soon-to-be-on-the-road-and-track 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 are astounding.
Like going from 0 to 60 in 2.95 seconds with the new optional eight-speed automatic transmission and 3.2 seconds with the standard seven-speed manual.
Like covering the quarter-mile in 10.95 seconds with the automatic and 11.2 seconds with the manual.
But Chevrolet Performance is ready to gear it up a notch or two further for “ordinary” Stingray owners, with several aero, chassis, and suspension concept parts from the Z06 on display at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.
As a founding member of the legendary rock group KISS, Paul Stanley is use to dressing up and being the front man for his band. Now he’s dressing up another legendary pop-culture icon: the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
His personalized vision of the Stingray debuted this week along with Jimmie Johnson’s 1971 Corvette LT1 Concept at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
