OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: Arctic White-Hot Z51
Chevy’s decision to call this Corvette of the Week’s color “Arctic White” does nothing to cool the hot demeanor of the C7, let alone this one with the red rim blades that match the red brake calipers and the Adrenaline Red Competition Sport seats.
GM is temporarily stopping shipment of 2,000 new Stingrays from the Bowling Green, KY plant. The automaker is also telling dealers to halt deliveries on another 800 models already in inventory.
The Active Grille System, available for both 2014 and 2015 Stingray models, diverts airflow away from the engine compartment to help reduce the car’s lift and drag.
The LT4 engine powering the new Z06 will be one of hell of a monster. In fact, Jordan Lee, chief engineer for the new Z06 engine, says the LS9 is no match for the LT4.
I certainly would’ve never been able to identify this as a C7, but I guess it would be hard to make anything out of a car that has sustained this kind of damage.
