This is one Scary Stingray
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.
It’s been established in previous features that forum member Jagamajajaran knows how to visually modify his cars in proper fashion. When this guy tinted the rear bumper reflectors on his yellow C7, I wrote, “This should be a mandatory mod for all C7 Corvettes.” Now he’s at it again with something he calls the “Best $2.49 Interior Mod Ever” — a simple technique for changing the color of contrast stitching. All it takes is a Sharpie fabric marker and a couple of hours of your time. Perhaps it is the best inexpensive interior mod out there, but one thing’s for sure: it’s good enough to be Mod of the Week.
Blame CAFE regulations, blame the EPA, blame Satan, but regardless of whom you choose to blame, your chosen scapegoat will be unable to make this news any easier to digest, so here it goes: the 2016 Corvette is getting the Voltec powertrain added to its options list, and it will be called the Corvette E-REV.
Prepare your tear ducts: video of the 1993 ZR-1 Spyder being pulled out of the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum hit the Web last night, and it’s painful to watch.
Sure, I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I certainly don’t mind a few custom features on the new ‘Vette — and don’t get me wrong, I truly like some of the stuff Forgiato does, but honestly, I can barely stand to look at these things, and I would prefer to refrain from even calling them Corvettes.
