Default Just picked up a C7 in AZ

Hey guys - I've been a long time fan of this forum and Corvettes in general. Recently I bought my first ever Corvette, a 2014 C7 Stingray with the Z51 package. The car is in great shape and had only 15k miles on it at the time of purchase. Interestingly enough this car spent 8 months of its early life in Germany, so you can bet it saw some autobahn action.

Overall I'm thrilled with the car. I used to drive a BMW 328I Msport and thought it was pretty fast - the Vette is definitely a step up in the performance department and surprisingly comfortable too!

Here's some pics:

Congrats my friend... your my photo negative as i just got a black one hahaha
what's crazy about these cars is they look good in all colors, I haven't liked them in red or white since the c3 but the new ones in white and red just really pop on the C7 because of the lines and accents. Where I got mine he had a grey, white, red, yellow, blue and my black one and he said "which color you thinking" I said "damn I don't know they all look awesome, even the blue and i hate most blue cars hahah"
I was actually torn between the white w red interior or the black on black, I went black well because I have had a few black vehicles...

But man that Arctic white one you have is a beauty!!!! Enjoy!!!

Thanks for the warm welcome guys.

I just took my Z51 out to the track at WHP East track for the NASA AZ event on 3/24 for my first ever HPDE1 event. I must say this car rips! I felt very comfortable hitting corners and had tons of power to accelerate out. Stock brakes never faded and even the Pilot super sport ZPs were adequate enough to keep me on the track.

It was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it. The next HPDE will be coming up on April 21st/22nd at the Bondurant School track at WHP motorsports park. I'm looking forward to it!
