Corvette was making quiet the crowd at the Detroit auto show. I haven't seen a crowd like it since the camaro concept way back

It goes to show the level of detail behind every bit of this car.

I even see some hints at the C3 with the plate on.
Damn thats sweet, and I actually like it in place (I've seen body color C3 treatments for the C7 and I actually prefer it over the real C7 stuff along with body colored A-pillars).

The C7 is growing on me, I like it in the darker colors so far out in the wild.

I think it's an alright looking car. The thing I really don't like about it is the rearend. It doesn't look like a vette. The tail lights almost look like the camaro tail lights. More of a square shape rather than the cirlces. I'm talking about it as if I'll own one.. I must've gone crazy. But I think it'd be nice having everyone looking at you when you blow by them down the highway.

Well, it had to happen at some point...

Apparently they hit a guardrail then went into the rocks.

There's a cell phone video out there of what looks to be this car with 2 others (black w/black wheels & orange w/silver wheels) in a town in Arizona not too far from where that picture is from. In that video Jim Mero (the engineer who recorded the record breaking ZR1 lap time at the Nurburgring) is the guy who got out of the blue car.

"We can confirm that during routine testing, a Stingray was involved in a one-car accident. During evaluation, due to driver error the inside tire caught the edge of the pavement during a tight corner, leading to the accident. Thankfully, no one was hurt, the car received only minor damage, and no citations were issued."

That was Chevy's response to Digital Corvettes' inquiry about that car.

It's too bad because if that blue actually looks like it does on my monitor, it is the best looking of the pre-production cars.

If you're not breaking stuff you're not really testing anything.

How was no citation issued?

How is this not at least failure to control your vehicle?

Discretion on the part of the cops? Single car incidents happen all the time without citations.

Nice, imagine developing that to the point where you could control the intake and exhaust valves of an engine without the need for a cam, rocker arm or roller follower - none of that, just the valve, its spring and a wire.
