Far be it for me to start spreading rumors, but this one here is pretty interesting, true or not. After hearing Vice President Joe Biden rave so much about the new Corvette Stingray, it appears he might have recently taken delivery of one.
Behold and feast your eyes on the 2014 Callaway Corvette. Set to make its official debut tomorrow at the National Corvette Museum, the modified Stingray features Callaway’s third-generation supercharger system with 620 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque packed into that LT1 V8.
When it comes to carrying that coveted “Made in America” tag important to a lot of U.S. car buyers, the new Corvette Stingray tops the list … well, along with the Ford F-Series, which I think still puts the C7 in pretty good company as far as respected American nameplates. Both vehicles tied at first place for “Most American-Made” vehicle based on a study by the Kogod School of Business at American University that evaluates the domestic content of vehicles sold in the United States.
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.
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.
