Chevrolet is ready to make a big statement at this year’s New York Auto Show as three versions of its iconic Corvette model head to the Big Apple.
The C7.R Race Car, the Z06 and the Z06 Convertible are ready to thrill fans attending the annual motoring event.
When visitors go to take a gander at the C7.R, not only will they see the completed model in all its glory, they will also see a stripped down version of the car, demonstrating the production process.
The Chevrolet has just the back-left panel attached to the main body frame, as well as the front-right wheel arch. This allows visitors to take a look at the meticulous work that has gone into the undershell, as well as seeing the engine fully exposed.
It’s a unique and fascinating way to see the inner workings of a machine that is so powerful and commanding on the track.
Of course, there is also a fully constructed example present at the event, meaning visitors can take a look at the machine in all its glory.
Located next to the stripped down racer is the Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Known as the Stingray, the car is a stunning balance of performance and design, and is now the most powerful standard Corvette model the manufacturer has ever produced.
Under the bonnet is a 6.2-litre aluminium V8 engine, capable of delivering 625 hp and 630 Nm of torque.
This is delivered alongside the world’s fastest-acting suspension, able to read the road and adjust the chassis accordingly to improve the ride.
It is available in five distinct driving modes, known as weather, eco, tour, sport and track, with each delivering its own unique benefits depending on the driving environment or situation.
The car is essentially the street-ready version of the C7.R, fitted with added extras including a head-up display, full leather upholstery and a rear view camera.
Not enough for you? Well what about Chevy’s next offering – the Stingray Convertible?
Packing all the punch, power and precision of the standard model, this comes with one obvious benefit: you can easily take the top down.
Imagine going from 0-62mph in just 4.2 seconds and feeling the rush of fresh air as you accelerate. It would be a pretty incredible experience.
The roof can be removed at the simple press of a button, allowing you to enjoy the thrill of top-down driving in a matter of seconds.
Furthermore, it comes packed with technology, including the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system twinned to an eight-inch touch screen.
Mobile connectivity is also possible, allowing passengers to view images or watch movies on the go, or make the most of a mobile music playlist. Sound is delivered through a stunningly clear Bose audio system.
In New York, the convertible is present in electric blue. But believe us, it is red hot.
