2014 Corvette C7 : Walkaround : Tadge Juechter Chevrolet Chief Engineer

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.

2015 Corvette Z06 technical presentation by Chief Engineer, Tadge Juechter
“The Corvette Z06 is a great example of the technology transfer between racing and production Corvettes,” said Juechter. “First, we took what we learned on the Corvette Racing C6.R and applied that to the all-new Corvette Stingray. Then, using the Stingray as a foundation, the Z06 and C7.R were developed to push the envelope of performance on the street and the track.” The all-new, industry-leading Performance Data Recorder enables users to record high-definition video, with telemetry overlays, of their driving experiences on and off the track. It was named Best Automotive Electronics Product at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, by Engadget.
