Where else would you expect the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray to show up first? Although this time it isn't exactly in Jay Leno's Garage, Leno instead playing an away game at Brown's Classic Auto in Scottsdale, Arizona. Nor does Leno drive the car, instead taking an 11-minute walkaround of the new American sports car with General Motors design head Ed Welburn, the same man who recently brought by a string of classic Corvettes to the talk show host's California compound.

It is, admittedly, a love-fest for the American sports car now featuring 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, but one that also features admissions about previous Corvette seats like "they were kinda rough," and the explanation that labeling the coupe "Stingray" means not having to call it "the base Corvette." On top of that, Welburn also explains the proper application of the term "dashboard." You can watch it all in the video below.

      Go see one in person if you have the opportunity. Videos and pictures do not give a lot of the body lines and depth of the car justice at all.

      yah I think the rear is just perfect, new, and FRESH. A fresh start is what the Vette brand desperately needed. The stingray has come through in a BIG way.

      I saw a comment on autoblog on a post with some spy photos of this car, and I feel the need to repeat it "Those four missile silos at the back mean business is implied"

      I\'m really liking this. Looks really good in the video. Kudos to the designers for having the balls to really push the design forward.

      Must say I had to eat my words when I saw it in person at the auto show. It looks great and the interior looks much better than it shows in photos. Don't love the rear and the tailpipes still but I am sure that will pass too. Maybe it is was all painted the same color and your could get a single trapezoidal pipe instead of the four that would fix it. I loved the C6, but this is much better in every way. They are going to sell a ton of these.

      This car looked a whole lot better in in this video than it did in any of the pictures of I have seen. I can't wait to see one in person. I love its sleek, fastback roofline, sculpted body, functional vents and interior. I am still not a big fan of the taillights, but I suspect that in time they will start to grow on me. The rest of the car looks truly amazing, with its design being a great balance between revolutionary and evolutionary.

      After watching Jay's video I clicked on a Car and Driver vid where they interview many of the Chevrolet engineers and designers who worked on the C7. Makes me appreciate the car a bit more: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=EUrtMZ20rFk

      To me it does look like an evolution of the C3. Especially the fenders. That's nice.

        I think your right and the c3 is still sexy after all of these years!

      I'd still prefer round tail lights but this design is starting to grow on me. Amazing car and can't wait to see the higher end versions.

      I went to the New York international auto show to specifically see the corvette.... Seriously guys.. Pictures do it no justice.... The car is so awesome in person.... I checked out every angle of the car... You will be pleased..... Screams out attention easily..... Give it a chance... When you see it in person... You might feel the same as me.....

        Idiotic hyperbole like this usually comes from people who can't afford one and want to make themselves feel better.
