Corvettes Fall Into Sinkhole at National Corvette Museum
(CNN) -- Eight Corvettes fell into a sinkhole that opened up beneath a section of the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky on Wednesday. The sinkhole, about 40 feet wide and about 25 to 30 feet deep, appeared before dawn under the skydome section of the museum, said Executive Director Wendell Strode. The yellow cone-shaped area houses Corvettes on loan from private owners and those "made famous by magazines and auto shows the world over," according to the museum's website. It is home to more than 30 unique Corvettes, including prototypes and a 1983 model -- the only one in existence. Of the eight cars that fell, six were donated to the museum by Corvette enthusiasts, and two are owned by the car's maker General Motors. Strode could not say how much the total value of the damaged cars is, but added it was "substantial." Strode said a structural engineer was at the scene assessing the situation. The museum in Bowling Green celebrates the American-made Chevrolet Corvette. It's located across the street from the GM Bowling Green Corvette assembly plant, where the cars are made.

The Gorgeous all new 2014 Corvette Stingray
http://tinyurl.com/ckzyqlt Expert POV Luxury Car Reviews in HD! Subscribe Now for Updates! The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is currently available as a hatchback coupe only. The convertible, with its power-operated soft-top roof, is expected to arrive in the spring of 2014. There are two main trim levels, base and Z51. Within each, however, there are three sub-trims: 1LT, 2LT and 3LT. The base Corvette 1LT comes standard with 18-inch front wheels and 19-inch rear wheels, xenon headlights, heated mirrors, a removable roof panel, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, keyless ignition and entry, leather upholstery, eight-way power front seats and a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. Electronic features include OnStar, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, an 8-inch touchscreen display, Chevy's MyLink electronics interface, a rearview camera and a nine-speaker Bose sound system with two USB ports, an auxiliary audio jack, an SD card reader and satellite radio. The Corvette Stingray Z51 1LT further adds 19-inch front/20-inch rear wheels, exterior aero trim, performance brakes and suspension tuning, revised transmission gear ratios (manual transmission only), a limited-slip electronic rear differential, a rear differential cooler and dry-sump oiling for the V8 engine. All Corvette Stingray 2LT models come with auto-dimming driver-side and rearview mirrors, a 10-speaker sound system with HD radio, a head-up display, a cargo shade, driver memory settings, heated and ventilated seats and power lumbar seat adjustments. The 3LT is the same but with upgraded leather upholstery and a navigation system. For the Corvette Z51, adaptive suspension dampers are optional and come bundled with an upgraded traction management system. Other options for the whole Corvette Stingray line include a dual-mode Exhaust system and competition-style seats (late availability). All coupes come with a painted and removable carbon-fiber roof panel, and if you choose, you can order your roof panel either with exposed carbon fiber or transparent. Powertrains and Performance Under the Corvette's hood is a 6.2-liter V8 driving the rear wheels. Maximum power is rated at 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque -- up from 436 and 428 last year, respectively. Don't be unimpressed by what appear to be modest power gains, though; the new engine adds roughly 50 lb-ft of torque below 4,000 rpm over the outgoing model. With its optional dual-mode Exhaust, the Corvette gets a slight power Boost to 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. The new V8 now features direct fuel injection, variable valve timing and cylinder deactivation. Fuel economy should be very similar to the previous car, which stood at 16 mpg city/26 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined with the manual transmission. For the new car, a new seven-speed manual transmission is offered alongside a conventional six-speed automatic. The new manual uses the same gear ratios as the previous car, with the 7th gear acting as a tall cruising gear to incrementally improve fuel economy. The manual also comes with automatic rev-matching for upshifts and downshifts, which greatly simplifies and smoothes out shifting during enthusiastic driving.
