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.

Redline First Drive: 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

The release of Chevrolet's 2014 Corvette Stingray was easily the most
anticipated vehicle for this model year. Aftermarket accessory
manufacturers wasted no time in developing upgrades for the new C7 upon
taking receipt of the very first Vettes to roll off the line in Bowling
Green, KY. In most cases, less than 7 weeks was the amount of time each of
these vendors had to prep their C7 for the SEMA deadline. Definitely a
formidable challenge to overcome!
