http://MPGomatic.com takes you on a walkaround of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with Tadge Juechter at the New York City premiere event. Tadge is the Chief Engineer/Vehicle Line Director - Corvette at General Motors.
The Corvette first premiered in New York at the GM Motorama Show sixty years ago. This historic event featured pristine representatives of each of the previous six generations of the Corvette, including the very same car that was shown in NYC decades ago.
The C7 Corvette Stingray was first shown at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, just prior to this event. The red 2014 Corvette shown in this video was shipped to Scottsdale, Arizona immediately after this event to be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson auction. It sold for $1.1 Million to Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports.
Parts of the audio in this video are a tad noisy. There were photographers and journalists crawling all over the car while we were shooting. Why they couldn't make the tiny effort to close the driver's door and stop all that dinging is anybody's guess. Keep your ears out as one guy SLAMS the door on this $1.1 million dollar pre-production car.
Shooting this video was one of the coolest little opportunities that's come my way in this MPGomatic adventure. Many thanks to General Motors for the invitation, to Tadge for his time, and to you for watching.
Having the opportunity to create videos with top automotive engineers and race car drivers just might be the best part of this gig. This piece was shot (handheld, for the most part) with a Canon XH A1s, using a Rode directional mic.

C7 Corvette & convertible @ Barrett Jackson WPB 2013
i finally got to see the red C7 Corvette and Convertible. the gray car had
been auctioned off few hours earlier for $1 million to that same man that
bought the red one. actually he did buy these cars but rather the rights
to the first VIN number of both cars. this time there were no barriers.
the GM representative there told me that the Z06 version of the C7 would be
out in 2015. there will be no grand sport and no ZR1. but the Z06 would
out perform either one. near the end of this video you can see i got a
recording i got a live recording of the live recording of Barrett Jackson
on SpeedTV. the sound has been removed due to the music playing too loud
over the sound system at the auction.
2014 Chevy Corvette C7 Stingray Interview Video with Harlan Charles @ 2013 Detroit Auto Show
http://www.autobytel.com/auto-shows/united-states/detroit/ Road Test Editor
Benjamin Hunting catches up with Harlan Charles, Corvette Product Manager,
at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show for some excellent insights on the new C7
How did you balance the evolution of the design with what people come to
expect to see in a Corvette?
"We really wanted to create an all new Corvette, every surface, everything
people see was intended to be all new but also unmistakably Corvette. In
the back of our minds we wanted to bring back the passion of the Stingray;
some of the famous Corvettes like the 1959 Corvette racecar designed by
Bill Mitchell, or the 1963 split-window. We wanted to bring back some of
that passion but necessarily the same design cues. The goal was to create a
new Corvette statement going forward that builds on the past but in an
entirely new way. So one of the fine balances we did was incorporating a
lot of racing technology which you can see in the car via the functional
air vents and cooling outlets derived from the racecar while at the same
time trying to make the car more sophisticated and upscale."
Are we going to see different variations of the Corvette that will allow
you to take on higher end GT cars?
"Within the new Corvette Stingray line-up we have the Z-51 Performance
Package to satisfy those who are looking for more track oriented
performance, but then there will be different options at a higher luxury
level that can be added on such as faux leather or suede headliner. We are
going to have a lot of different ways that you can tailor the car to your
needs whether it is more towards the performance end of the spectrum or the
luxury GT end. What this will do is not only open the car up to the
hard-core performance enthusiasts, but also to those who appreciate cars in
Will there be additional smaller displacement engines in the future?
"I will say the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray does have a large displacement
6.2 liter engine, but there is an Eco-Mode with cylinder deactivation which
essentially makes the car under certain conditions a 3.1 liter 4-cylinder.
With this technology we are allowing people to have the best of both
worlds: a large V-8 with 450 ft.-lbs. of torque when you want it and you
can also have the fuel economy of a 4-cylinder."
The Corvette gets faster with each
new generation; will we ever hit a wall in terms of performance?
"We keep pushing the technology envelope. On the C6 Corvette, we never
thought that the car would make over 630 horsepower in the ZR-1, but
we did surpass that figure. And I think the performance will keep on going,
people will always want more power and more speed. We are going to keep
pushing the envelope as much as we can."

Brand NEW C7 Corvette Interview
I saw the C7 for the first time and it was great! I am still iffy about the
tail lights, but in person they are so much better than in the pics.This
video is my version of what I think is a good walkaround. The hard top
coupe with the carbon fiber top that was in the trunk was a z51 Vette. The
convertible was also a z51 vette I tried to cover the whole car and "Lady
Stingray" did a good job with the verbal overview. Any questions feel free
to comment below! She said that the car will be in the mid $50,000 range
and it will be out in August!!! Im excited! I also asked her if I could sit
in in, and she said NO :(
