If there were any skepticism about General Motors’ commitment to making the Corvette Stingray one of the most competitive sports cars in the world, then a recent report by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) eradicates any doubt. According to the top engineering industry source, GM is pretty certain its all-new 8L90 automatic transmission will give the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray an EPA-certified 30 mpg on the highway.
Chances are if you own a new Corvette Stingray you’ve been itching for a couple of pointers on how to get the most out of your baby’s performance capabilities … that is unless you already consider yourself in the ranks of greats like Mario Andretti. Either way, Chevy wants to help you get a better handle on how to get the most out of your new Corvette Stingray by offering a reduced rate to 2014 Corvette owners who attend the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School.
The C7 Corvette represents a major leap over the C6 in all categories. In terms of design, that leap is best delineated when you compare their rumps. The contrast is striking, isn’t it?
All mortals take note, there is one thing you should never, ever do, and that’s touch another person’s Corvette in any form or fashion. That is, unless (1) you’ve been given permission by the owner, (2) you’ve provided at least three solid references or referrals, and (3) signed a waiver that if the Corvette happens to sustain any damage due to your negligence, you agree to waive any and all legal rights typical granted to criminals or the mentally insane.
Hey, we’ll take just about any footage of the new Stingray we can get our hands on, especially if it gives us the opportunity to take a closer look at the new Z06 and C7.R racecar. The most recent video we’ve stumbled on comes courtesy of General Motors, highlighting the premiere of the two higher performance ‘Vettes at the recent Geneva Motor Show in Europe.
