At this year’s Woodward Dream Cruise it was hard to ignore the dominance of Corvettes at the event, like the new Z06 on display at the Chevy booth.
During a recent one-on-one tour at Lingenfelter’s Michigan facility, I had a chance to get a more candid take on what he thinks about the new Stingray and what his team is doing to get more power out of the car.
Chevy is counting on the C7 to change the perception of the Corvette in Southern California. Can the C7 achieve that goal?
Corvette Racing seems to have finally found its stride with the C7.R, earning a first- and third-place finish in the new Chevy race car this past weekend in Long Beach. Driving the No. 3 Corvette, Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen took the top spot in the GT Le Mans class of the Patrón Sports Car Showcase, giving Corvette Racing its first win in the C7.R.
I knew the interior of the new Corvette Stingray would be impressive when I first heard General Motors Design Chief, Ed Welburn rave over it before the car’s official debut last year; however, I’m not even sure Welburn imagined the C7’s cockpit would get as much praise as it’s getting now.
