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.

Elio Motors: 84 MPG for $6800?
What do you think? Can Elio Motors really pull off an 84 MPG three-wheeler
for only $6800? Will they be a success or another DeLorean?
They tried opening a plant in Michigan years back, but that deal went
nowhere. Lets hope they're successful this time.

2014 Corvette C7 Stingray
The 2014 Corvette Stingray is the most powerful standard model ever, with
an estimated 450 horsepower and 450 lb.-ft.
of torque. It is also the most capable standard model ever, able to
accelerate from 0-60 in less than four seconds and achieve more than 1g in
cornering grip. It is expected to be the most fuel-efficient Corvette,
exceeding the EPA-estimated 26 mpg of the current model.
The all-new Corvette Stingray shares only two parts with the previous
generation Corvette. It incorporates an all-new frame structure and
chassis, a new powertrain and supporting technologies, as well as
completely new exterior and interior designs. Highlights include:
An interior that includes real carbon fiber, aluminum and hand-wrapped
leather materials, two new seat choices -- each featuring a lightweight
magnesium frame for exceptional support -- and dual eight-inch configurable
Advanced driver technologies, including a five-position Drive Mode Selector
that tailors 12 vehicle attributes to the fit the driver's environment and
a new seven-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching that
anticipates gear selections and matches engine speed for perfect shifts
An all-new 6.2L LT1 V-8 engine combines advanced technologies, including
direct injection, Active Fuel Management, continuously variable valve
timing and an advanced combustion system that delivers more power while
using less fuel
Lightweight materials, including a carbon fiber hood and removable roof
panel; composite fenders, doors and rear quarter panels; carbon-nano
composite underbody panels and a new aluminum frame help shift weight
rearward for an optimal 50/50 weight balance that supports a world-class
A sculptured exterior features advanced high-intensity discharge and
light-emitting diode lighting and racing-proven aerodynamics that balance
low drag for efficiency and performance elements for improved stability and
Track-capable Z51 Performance Package including: an electronic limited-slip
differential, dry-sump oiling system, integral brake, differential and
transmission cooling, as well as a unique aero package that further
improves high-speed stability.
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette is a head turner and has now brought back the
Stingray name. It was released at the Detroit AutoShow. This is just one of
the 30 videos I have including cars like Mercedes, Porsche, Audi, Lexus,
BMW, Range Rover, Acura, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley, Rolls
Royce, Volkswagen, Nissan, Ford, Mclaren, Cadillac, Corvette, Jaguar,
Dodge, Alfa Romeo, Lotus.
I apologize for the slight shakiness in the camera. Image stabilizer was on
and I didn't not realize until later.

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.
