Yesterday in Geneva, Switzerland, General Motors has officially pulled the wraps off its new and shiny 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible. Besides a huge V8 that uses less than 14 liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers in a combined cycle, the new convertible also features a “fully electronic top” that lets you open or close the roof remotely using the car’s key fob. Now, that’s nice.
Tuners of different kinds and origins keep introducing more and more upgrade programs for the much-adored Chevrolet Corvette Z06 supercar, the sixth generation of the legendary sports car. This time, the Troy, Michigan-based Specter Werkes company decided to equip the ‘Vette’s 7.0-liter LS7 engine with a twin-turbo system by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering making it perhaps one of the most powerful street-legal Corvettes in the human history.
Ford’s components supplier Blue Fusion is going to unveil its Chevrolet Corvette C6-based Rossi 66 sports car at the upcoming 2008 SEMA show set to be held November 4 – November 7, 2008 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
GM Asia-Pacific has built exactly 30 copies of its new Chevrolet Corvette S-Limited special edition model. Hardware-wise, these thirty stallions will be identical twins of a normal 2008 Chevrolet Corvette C6, but they will feature slightly different bodywork with re-sculpted front fascia, new rear spoiler and, of course, new mirror-polished and chromed exhaust tips.
We have already reported on the upcoming Chevrolet Corvette ZR1‘s official power rating. Now GM reveals some more info on the super car’s performance and price.
GM’s new LS9 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine has been officially certified by SAE as having a maximum power output of impressive 638 hp and peak torque of 819 Nm (604 lb-ft).
It is reported that GM’s Australian subsidiary is going to start producing a road-legal version of its Holden Efijy concept car. Since building the car from scratch requires too many time-consuming safety testing and certification procedures, the car is going to share its platform with an existing sports car, which is currently produced by GM. I am pretty sure that you have already guessed, which one it is going to be.
Chevrolet has just announced that its 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 muscle car will come to the market at a significantly higher starting price. The problem is: for a 10 percent bump in price, the American car manufacturing brand offers you very little in return. Perhaps, some person in Detroit has decided that the marque is legendary enough to charge an extra premium just for the loud name.
