More times than not during the roll out of a new Corvette model do we see some dealers using market conditions to jack up the price over the MSRP.

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.

This week marks a special milestone for the 2015 Corvette Z06. The Corvette Assembly Plant just completed its first retail production of the new 650 horsepower Z06, a Black coupe that will go to Chevrolet dealer and NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick.
Earlier this year, Hendrick paid one million dollars at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach to own the first retail VIN of the Corvette Z06 with the proceeds of that sale going to charity.
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.
Here’s a sight most Corvette enthusiasts don’t like to see.
This is the first time we’ve seen a 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible out in public wearing the new Daytona Orange Sunrise. Unfortunately, the 650-hp super car made somewhat of a spectacle of itself by losing control on wet roads and taking out another vehicle on its way to a ditch on I-94 in Jackson, Michigan over the weekend.
Corvette’s Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter takes you through the three different levels of aerodynamic bliss that is the 2015 Corvette Z06:
The Corvette Z06 is one of the most aerodynamically engineered vehicles out there. And for the extreme enthusiasts there’s the Z07 package that has more aerodynamic down force that has ever been measured on a production car.

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.
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.

Over the last decade automakers have used ‘Ring lap times as a means to define the performance of their latest creations.
