Corvette Stingray Party Coachella

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.

After weeks of circling the rumor mill, General Motors has made it official: the Corvette Stingray will be offered with an eight-speed automatic transmission for 2015. Designed and built by GM in-house, the automaker says the new transmission will deliver world-class shift times that will rival some of the best dual-clutch systems on the market, all while delivering better fuel efficiency.
