i was at the 7th annual Chevrolet day and classic car show last sunday when i ran across not one, or two....but 3 of these, straight out of Bowling Green, Kentucky.
what you guys are seeing here is the newest addition to the Corvette family, the C7 Stingray.
powered by a 6.2 liter all aluminum V8 named the LT1 (kinda running out of L-type code for your engines, aren't you GM? the last time they used the LT1 code for its engines was the 1990's small block v8 that was on the Impala SS, Camaro and Corvette C4). making 455/460hp, all handled though a 7 speed manual or 6 speed auto. the suspension has also been improved by using a nano-composite material for their monoleaf suspension, which will make it handle with the best out there.
at first, i wasn't too keen on the car's looks because of the fact they got rid of the rounded quad lights in the back end. although the C4's were close enough and the C5's were oval shaped, its GT-R like side intake and the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta like silhouette but enough nit picking about that.
the engine sound was straight up brilliant thanks to those 4 pipes, i'm beginning to like this one already.
no, i'm not riding GM's dick if this sounds like a promo, it describes what i feel about it. this Vette is straight up gorgeous.
