2014 C7 Corvette Stingray 

Chevrolet Press Release:

Chevrolet is redefining modern performance with today’s debut of the all-new Corvette Stingray. And only a Corvette with the perfect balance of technology, design and performance can wear the iconic Stingray designation.

The 2014 Corvette Stingray is the most powerful standard model ever, with an estimated 450 horsepower (335 kW) and 450 lb.-ft. of torque (610 Nm). It is also the most capable standard model ever, able to accelerate from 0-60 in less than four seconds and achieve more than 1g in cornering grip. It is expected to be the most fuel-efficient Corvette, exceeding the EPA-estimated 26 mpg of the current model.

History is made

On April 3, 2012, Corvette history was made!

The line of Corvettes carrying RPO B2K began to travel the production line at the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green Kentucky. Only 25 of these limited edition Callaway Corvettes will be built. RPO B2K was the original Regular Production Option code from Chevrolet for Callaway Twin Turbo Corvettes from 1987-1991.

Chevrolet rolled out the RPO for 2012, re-issuing it to Callaway for use on this 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Corvette.

For more about RPO B2K or to find an Authorized Callaway Dealer with one, please visit: CallawayCars

B2Ks are Built

UPDATE‎...just back from Bowling Green, KY,

The 25 production RPO B2K Callaway Anniversary Corvettes rolled off the line Thursday, April 5th., The first B2K produced, a manual transmission coupe, was off the line at 7:12 AM. The remaining 24 B2Ks followed.

Mike Zoner, Managing Director and Chris Chessnoe, Program Manager of Callaway Cars, were joined by Callaway Dealer, Sid Harchelroad and three of his B2K Corvette customers, following the B2K-coded Corvettes down the line. Zoner started the first RPO B2K at the end of the assembly line, shaking hands with Corvette Plant Quality Control Manager, Steve Grilli, as the car headed toward the final validation/inspection area.

Exciting times for the return of RPO B2K.

2013 60th Anniversary Corvette 427 Convertible

60thfull.jpg

60th1.jpg

The last time you could buy a new 427-powered Corvette convertible was 1969, but Chevrolet plans to send the C6 Corvette off with a bang by dropping the 505hp, 427-cubic-inch Z06 engine into the 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible and offering a 60th Anniversary package for all Corvette trim levels.


The 427 Convertible will feature a carbon fiber hood, front fenders, and the optional 60th Anniversary package will add carbon fiber rocker panels and front splitter. That puts the curb weight at 3,355, for estimated 0-60 acceleration in 3.8 seconds, making it one of the quickest
convertibles on the market.


All 2013 Corvettes will feature 60th Anniversary badging on the fascia and instrument panel, while the 60th Anniversary package will add, “Arctic White exterior with a Blue Diamond leather-wrapped interior with suede accents.
Convertible models will have a blue top.”

“Additional content includes a ZR1-style rear spoiler, special badging, gray-painted brake calipers and the “60th” logo on the wheel center caps, steering wheel and seat headrests. An optional graphics package adds full-length racing stripes in Pearl Silver Blue, including a tonal stripe stitched into the convertible top, extending the graphic theme over the roof.”

Chevrolet Celebrates 100th Anniversary with 2012 Centennial Edition Corvette Package

100than2.jpg

100than2.jpg

Chevrolet is celebrating its 100th anniversary with a special edition for all Corvette models. The "Centennial Edition"is intended to recall a native of Switzerland, founder Louis Chevrolet. 

The 2012 Centennial Edition will be available as a special package on all Corvette models, including the Grand Sport that features a 6.2-liter V8 pumping out 430HP, the Z06 that comes equipped with a 505HP 7.0-liter V8 and the flagship ZR1 with its 638-hp supercharged LS9 V8 engine. Magnetic Selective Ride Control is now standard equipment.

The special package comes exclusively in Carbon Flash Metallic, with satin-black graphics and unique Centennial Satin Black wheels and red brake calipers. The lightweight wheels come with a thin red outline around the perimeter of its surface on the Z06, and are specific to the respective Corvette models, including 18-inch/19-inch for Coupe, Convertible and Grand Sport; and 19-inch/20-inch for Z06 and ZR1.

Other exclusive features include a graphic logo featuring an image of Louis Chevrolet that appears on the B-pillars, the center caps of the wheels, and the center of the steering wheel, while the crossed flags badge contains a small adaptation, with “100” in place of the traditional fleur-de-lis symbol.

The black and red color theme is continued inside with the Ebony leather-wrapped instrument panel and doors complemented by red stitching on the steering wheel, seats, console and shifter. The interior also gets microfiber suede accents on the seats, steering wheel, shifter and armrests, while the seat headrests carry an embossed centennial logo.

Trivia Question
 
Q.> How did Corvette get its name?

A.> Taking its name from the corvette, a small, maneuverable fighting frigate (the credit for the naming goes to Myron Scott), the first Corvettes were virtually handbuilt in Flint, Michigan in Chevrolet's Customer Delivery Center, now an academic building at Kettering University.
