$20 million in greenbacks sitting inside the safe of my choosing is definitely worth more to me than $20 million floating in space. Apple pie à la mode is worth significantly more to my taste buds than apple pie paired only with a plate. One look at this week’s Wednesday wallpaper, and suddenly the equation “1 + 1 = 3″ begins making a lot more sense. Don’t be surprised if your computer desktop whispers, “I’m extra worthy” after you plaster these ‘Vettes and jets on your computer screen for the week. I mean, “‘Vettes and jets” — the combo even rhymes, so you know it was meant to be.
Until we get confirmation of the C7 Z06′s performance madness, the C6 ZR1 still remains the high water mark of Corvette performance. The ZR1′s capabilities were helped in no small part to all the data and experience acquired in the Corvette Racing program. This week’s Wednesday wallpaper pays homage to a major component of what made the C6 ZR1 great: its racing pedigree.
As dressy as this C7 Corvette Stingray looks on Vossen wheels, the rolling stock’s extra visual appeal hits you as though the car is undressing right in front of you. Click on the image after the jump to download this week’s Wednesday wallpaper, and after doing so, keep a close watch on your temperature under the collar … under-collar overheating can cause your head to blow clear off your body, and nobody wants to clean up that mess.
I’ve heard songs that mention turbo ‘Vettes and little red Corvettes, but I’ve never heard a song that mentions a yellow Corvette. It would have been nice if Wiz Khalifa’s song “Black and Yellow” was about a Corvette, but the lyrics actually signified his allegiance to the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the car in the “Black and Yellow” music video was a Dodge Challenger SRT8. Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow” music video has 171 million views on YouTube, but maybe it would have already hit 200 million if it had featured a Corvette like the one above. OK, maybe not, but a ‘Vette in the video would have been nice.
What is it about European Corvettes? They’re so menacing. An American version of this Z06 would remind me of a tire-smoldering weekend at the track, or a bit of hooning between the stoplights. When I look at this “Wallpaper Wednesday” car, I see a Corvette that looks like it just chased an innocent Ford Fiesta through a British shopping mall.
