Early January each year the automotive world sets its sights on Detroit and the North American International Auto Show. The city that motorized planet earth shows off all the latest offerings from OEM’s and select suppliers. It’s the first real chance to see where the auto industry is going each year.
Since the C7 has been around for a few years now, Corvette news was pretty light as Chevrolet focused on newer products instead.
This year the Chevrolet display centered on the new Cruze, Bolt, and Malibu in addition to their popular Colorado midsize pickup. Just 2 Corvettes were on display. Greeting attendees as they entered the newly redesigned display area were a yellow C7.R edition Z06 and a Long Beach Red Stingray convertible featuring the Spice Red Design Package. While the aforementioned Bolt, Cruze, and Malibu were the main focus of the display, the ole C7’s still drew plenty of attention from passersby.
Elsewhere throughout Cobo Hall The Robb Report displayed a Laguna Blue Lingenfelter Z06 as well as a Tuxedo black 1967 coupe.
Our friends over at Michelin focused on their track to street technology transfer where they take their on-track learnings and apply them to the street tires we can buy right off the shelf. The bright white and blue display was dominated by a 2 story display consisting of another C7.R edition Z06 (VIN 002) and the real deal #4 C7.R dressed in its new 2016 livery.
The North American International Auto Show is open to the public January 16th – 24th at the Cobo Center in Detroit Michigan. For more information check out their website.
