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.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray driven by Scarlett Johansson who plays the Black Widow in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”, will likely spark a lot more ‘Vette fans into buying tickets to the film when it hits U.S. theaters this weekend. To help you rev up even more for the second installment of the superhero franchise, we thought we’d share a few photos we stumbled upon of the C7 on set in Washington D.C.
Talk about intimidating. Can you imagine cruising down the highway and suddenly seeing this sitting in the median? I’m betting most would probably start sweating the second they were to see it, even if they weren’t speeding.
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.
