The much-hyped mid-engine Corvette Stingray got some out-of-the-ordinary publicity this week as it went soaring through the air at Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena.
Well, actually it had a little help from equipment and workers as a crew lifted it into the air and installed the Torch Red 2020 Corvette on the wall at the northeast entrance of the two-year-old arena, where Chevrolet has been the official vehicle since the facility opened in September 2017.
Check out these photos for a look at the new Corvette that you’ve very likely never seen before – as in turned up at a 90-degree angle, for starters. We especially love that view as it really shows off the lines and angles of the mid-engine car that should be rolling on real roads early next year.
Looking on with excitement Tuesday were Harlan Charles, Corvette product manager, and Ed Piatek, Corvette engineer who pulled the cover off of the next-generation Corvette before it was lifted up in the air.
They’re hoping fans of the Detroit Red Wings and Pistons, along with concert-goers, will enjoy looking at this historic Corvette from all angles as it hangs on a wall.
The car appears to be rolling on tracks in the air thanks to an unusual piece of artwork that looks like a two-lane road.
