Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Videos
The history of the Corvette may go back to the first-generation model that debuted in 1953, but that six-cylinder rounded roadster bore little in common to the Vettes that followed. No, the real progenitor to the Corvette we know today was the C2 – a model which, without coincidence to today's model – bore the name Sting Ray.
If you caught this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner last night, you probably saw mostly the same kind of thing you'd see every year: government officials and Washington reporters making fun of each other. It's a bit like a Comedy Central roast, only played out by people who, let's face it, aren't known for being funny. But there have been some historical exceptions.
The history of the American space program is inextricably linked to the Chevrolet Corvette. It was the ride of choice for a number of astronauts, including many that were a part of the legendary Apollo program, which landed men on the moon. Neil Armstrong drove a Corvette, and six Mercury astronauts were Corvette owners as well. The crew of Apollo 12 ordered three identical C3 Stingrays (Alan Bean's is shown above).
We're really quite excited about the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and its Performance Data Recorder – and not just because of its unbridled potential for providing the world with more "dash cam" videos. We love the idea if only because it means we won't necessarily have to fiddle with GoPros while out on track. The new technology, which
We knew that once Hennessey Performance got its hands on the seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, big things were going to happen. A 200.6-mile-per-hour run on a closed section of Texas' brand-new State Highway 99, was just a shade bigger than what we were expecting. The run was also a test of the new toll road - which Hennessey founder John Hennessey called "pe
We tell you about what a car is like to drive every day, remarking on throttle response, steering weight and feedback, squat, dive, brake fade and a dozen or more other factors of performance. What we can't tell you, though, is what the car does to us – how its performance impacts us, physically. That's what makes this video series from Chevrolet so darn cool.
The new Chevrolet Corvette has a trick exhaust system that muffles the exhaust note when the electronically controlled valve flaps inside it are closed, and let's the V8 roar when they're open. The system works its mysterious magic depending on the drive mode and the engine's rpm. Here, Patrick Herrmann, Technical Manager of Chevrolet Europe, attempts to show us what's actually going on i
How would you react if someone just showed up at your place of work with a new, 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, complete with all the trimmings? While a lot of us would likely be flipping out over the still rare sports car, it's a fair bet many more of us would be responding like Pattie here, whose boyfriend stopped by her work to show her her new C7.
Chevrolet's latest road rocket, the Corvette Stingray, is a very quick car. If one needs further proof of that, we recommend they take a look at this video from Hennessey of what is claimed to be the first privately owned C7 Corvette to make a pass down the quarter mile. Not just any quarter mile, mind, this black C7 blitzed its way down the tuner's primary testing dragstrip. The Chevrolet
Just the other day, we told you about how Lincoln isn't really a luxury brand, according to Ford's head design man, J Mays. His argument was that Lincoln lacked the unique DNA to differentiate it from the rest of the market, although the arrival of the MKZ is beginni
Alright, there's no way the 455-horsepower Chevrolet Corvette Stingray beat the 640-hp SRT Viper, you say. Well, you're partially right. Edmunds ran them down a quarter-mile d
General Motors calls it "the most powerful standard Corvette model ever." The Los Angeles Times calls it "an incredibly compelling sports car." CNN calls it "a legit Porsche ki
Among many improvements made to the Chevy Corvette for its seventh generation, the interior might be the most important. The C5 and C6 generations were bashed for their lackluster interiors, but the new C7 Stingray is bringing all of the luxury and high-tech goodies expected from a modern sports car. To show an example of this, Chevy has released a short virtual demonstration of one of th
We're (patiently) waiting for our first chance to drive the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, but it appears Generous Motors have given some other publications the opportunity to test the new car early, including the fine folks at Motor Trend.
Chevrolet's new, seventh-generation Corvette Stingray is quite easily one of the most highly anticipated vehicles of the year. And as details of the new car trickle out ahead of our first drive of it (coming soon!), we're getting more and more excited.
