Take a look at this Torch Red Z51 Corvette Stingray, and you’re basically looking at the car that represents the C7′s first model year; hence my coronation of it as “Corvette of the Year”.
Talk about missing a hell of a party. As of August 27, nearly 8,000 Corvettes had registered for the huge gathering at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY.
So, how do C7 sales measure up to past first-year Corvette models? Well, as you probably expected, pretty damn good.
Honestly, I dislike this one more than that antifreeze green C7 I talked about last week, and that says a lot.
This 1957 Corvette with Ramjet airbox fuel injection represents one of the high water marks for C1 performance.
