OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: Laguna Blue Flame
This week’s Corvette of the Week comes from “Jesterissimo”, but to the mortals outside of Corvette Forum, he’s known as “Rob”. This 2014 Stingray is sitting on a drop-dead gorgeous set of HREs; they go with the Laguna Blue Tintcoat like chips go with salsa. Yum.
OK, so it looks like it was part of a monster truck stunt gone wrong, but at least it’s in once piece. Corvette #1.5 million is the seventh of the “Great Eight” Corvettes to be removed from the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum.
We’re getting all “split window” with you in this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday. Your computer screen should be as beautiful as your dreams, so click past the jump to give this Sting Ray a home on your monitor.
It’s been established in previous features that forum member Jagamajajaran knows how to visually modify his cars in proper fashion. When this guy tinted the rear bumper reflectors on his yellow C7, I wrote, “This should be a mandatory mod for all C7 Corvettes.” Now he’s at it again with something he calls the “Best $2.49 Interior Mod Ever” — a simple technique for changing the color of contrast stitching. All it takes is a Sharpie fabric marker and a couple of hours of your time. Perhaps it is the best inexpensive interior mod out there, but one thing’s for sure: it’s good enough to be Mod of the Week.
Blame CAFE regulations, blame the EPA, blame Satan, but regardless of whom you choose to blame, your chosen scapegoat will be unable to make this news any easier to digest, so here it goes: the 2016 Corvette is getting the Voltec powertrain added to its options list, and it will be called the Corvette E-REV.
