Our bonzai visit this week to the LA Auto Show was a rousing success in proving that I’m too old for one-day cross-country jaunts and that the 2019 Corvette ZR1 is incredible when viewed in person.
Both the ZR1 Coupe and Convertible models were on display with the high-wing ZTK package on the Watkins Glen Gray Coupe and a low-wing ZR1 Convertible featuring the Sebring Orange Design Package.
But don’t take my word for it.
Chevrolet employs the talents of several presenters who give their own personalized presentation based on the information that is provided by the automaker.
Sahar Sadri, who is featured in this video below, was in Dubai for the 2019 ZR1 Coupe reveal. She was provided the press release and the next day had her presentation memorized for the start of the Dubai Auto Show. Not only does Sahar represent the Corvette for Chevrolet, she is also the owner of a Corvette Stingray and manages to slip that fact into her presentation as well.
This wide-screen view offers a slightly different presentation from the one above and you can see all the action shots of the Corvette ZR1 including some video featuring Corvette Racing’s Oliver Gavin in the ZR1 on the Nurburgring. The presenter’s name in this video was Shannon.
I can’t understate just how impressive the Corvette ZR1 display was. The enter backdrop was a video wall that featured everything from wheat fields to the lunar surface. Visuals on the screen also followed two presentations, the first about Chevrolet’s status as the most awarded car company and the second was the 2019 Corvette Presentation.
In this video, Jeremy Welborn captured the Chevrolet screens between the presentations so you can see how dramatic the visuals appear on the huge background:
Finally, our friend Mike Furman from Criswell Chevrolet was called up on stage and honored for his lifetime achievement of having nearly 4,000 Corvettes sold.
