[PICS] The Stig's Wife Drives a Corvette Z06

Some say he is terrified of Scouts and he spends his spare time catching fish with his tongue or foraging for wolves in the woods. All we know is Auto Evolution says this woman is the wife of the Stig, the mysterious white-cloaked driver on the British motoring television show Top Gear.

Dale Martin says he recently took these photos of who he claims is Mrs.The Stig at the North Star Dragway in Texas.

January 2015 Corvette Sales

The latest monthly sales report from General Motors was released this morning which contains the delivery statistics of Corvettes in the month of January, 2015.

Last month, Chevrolet sold 2,127 Corvettes which was a decrease of -5.9% from the 2,261 Corvettes sold during January 2014. Since this is the beginning of the calendar year, those stats for Calendar Year to Date sales are the same as well.

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.

Chevy Debunks Report of a Corvette Z06 Lapping Nurburgring in 6:59.13

Team Corvette has a Nurburgring problem.

After testing the new Corvette Z06 at the famous 12.9 mile track in Germany last year, circumstances which include a crash and rainy weather stopped the team from laying down a complete timed lap. Instead of staying in Germany and making it a priority, the team left town and that has ceded the conversation to others.

[VIDEO] Late Model Racecraft Stage 2 Package Boosts a 2015 Corvette Z06 to 743 RWHP

If that 650 horsepower Corvette Z06 isn’t powerful enough for you, you might want to check out this upgrade from the folks at Late Model Racecraft.

They’ve just released a video showing this beautiful Velocity Yellow Z06 that they have upgraded to coax out 743 wheel horsepower, making it what might be the most powerful C7 Corvette Z06 tested on a dyno so far.

Sometimes a sad story does have a happy ending.

You may recall the poor fellow whose 2015 Corvette Z06 suffered a blown engine the day after Christmas, of all days, after he had enjoyed driving the supercar for just 891 miles.

But don’t fret any longer for Lawdogg149, as he is known on Corvette Forum.

[VIDEO] 2015 Corvette Z06 vs 2014 SRT Viper TA at the Strip

American Muscle is on full display in this video Jalopnik called “the drag race America demanded.” That is certainly true for Corvette fans who saw what happened when a Corvette Z06 with the Z07 Performance Package went up against a Viper TA in seven different roll races and lost.

In this race which takes place on the controlled environment of a drag strip, we got an example of a base aero Corvette Z06 (base splitter, no rocker panels and smaller rear spoiler) but still packing the potent 6.2L supercharged LT4 making 650 hp.
