In a long line of Corvettes, the newest iteration is set to deliver an incredible blend of performance and technology.
Resurrecting the revered Stingray nameplate wasn't a bad idea, either. Especially with a car this incredible.
The C6 was good, representing America’s one true sports car with superior performance and plenty of value. The C7, however, blows it out of the water, setting a new benchmark in the process.
At the Twin Cities Auto Show, Chevrolet brought with it the future of high performance: the C7 Corvette Stingray. Those attending were finally able to check out the Stingray first-hand, and came away impressed. Though at times the lines were long, generally people waited patiently to get some seat time, taking in the more-Euro styling and finding the next-gen Vette quite an accomplishment.
There was a pair of C7s on hand. First up was a white convertible, slightly more accessible being off to the side of the main stage. The ‘vert looked ultra sleek with the top lopped off, and its red interior made for a striking show display. We have to admit, you just don’t see red guts anymore, and this car pulls it off without a hitch.
The second show car was at center stage. Perhaps because of its flashy red paint, this C7 seemed to draw more of the crowds. A model/spokesperson would periodically unlatch the removable carbon fiber (targa) top and stow it behind the seats (too cool).
Check out the slideshow to view the C7 in all its glory.
Fresh off being named North American Car of the Year for 2014, the C7 has been gathering accolades like no other.
