Biden Vette feature

Apparently, that yellow C7 bearing the custom license plate “THE – VP” we reported on last week was indeed Vice President Joe Biden’s wheels. Well, sort of. The Corvette was used in a parody with Biden and HBO “Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus as part of the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, an affair where Hollywood stars and the press come together to mingle and share a few laughs.

You’ve got to wonder if even General Motors expected the new Corvette Stingray to be as big of a hit as it is now. Sure, they definitely knew they had something special when all the reviews started pouring in, but the C7 is turning out to be one of the biggest home runs any automaker has had over the past decade. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find any sane person disputing that … even among fans of rival brands.

You certainly can’t say that Chevy isn’t trying to share the love when it comes to the C7. In addition to reaching out to traditional Corvette fans, the carmaker has also been working to turn some new prospects on to the new Stingray. Most recently, Chevy set up camp at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts festival near Palm Springs, CA hoping to add a few of the partygoers to the Corvette fan base. Attendees at the Corvette bash had a chance to experience the thrill of the C7 from the passenger’s seat and it appears to have made quite an impression as you’ll see after the jump.
