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.
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.
Hey, we’ll take just about any footage of the new Stingray we can get our hands on, especially if it gives us the opportunity to take a closer look at the new Z06 and C7.R racecar. The most recent video we’ve stumbled on comes courtesy of General Motors, highlighting the premiere of the two higher performance ‘Vettes at the recent Geneva Motor Show in Europe.
We’re a little more than three weeks away from the first C7 Z06 being auctioned at Barrett-Jackson’s West Palm Beach event on Saturday, April 12. As the anticipation grows, I thought I’d use this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday to ease some of the anticipatory tension.
