OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: The Silver Blade
If the first-generation (E85) BMW Z4 had “flame surfacing”, the C7 Corvette has “blade surfacing”, and that is delightfully apparent when the Corvette’s exterior is slathered in Blade Silver Metallic.
At first glance this appears to be a silver C6 convertible on the side of Route 66 in Arizona, but there’s more to it than that. This is a glimpse of heaven. A drop-top ‘Vette and the open road flanked by beautiful scenery — what more could you ask for?
Corvette Forum has recently been infused with a 55-gallon injection of beauty serum. Forum member “Phantasms” (a.k.a. Gene Sanchez Leeds) has posted 125 jaw-dropping images from the New York Auto Show that you must see. Click past the jump for a link to photos that are about as wonderful as the first time you broke through the 100 mph barrier.
Z06 fans: now you can have your cake and eat it, too. GM has released images of the 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible. I think it is as beautiful as it is fast. You’re looking at the most powerful convertible Chevrolet has ever built, and probably the most fun way to mess up your hair.
This is a photo of Tom Jacobs’ Night Race Blue Metallic Stingray Convertible with a gray top and interior making its way down the production line at Bowling Green. The National Corvette Museum recently emailed Tom this “sneak preview” picture because he purchased the New Corvette Owner’s Photo Album.
