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.

suede interior package, among other goodies.
Apologies for the audio in this installment! My Tascam audio recorder gave
up the ghost and I had to run with cameras internal microphones. :/

2015 Corvette Z06 first drive with Chief Engineer, Tadge Juechter
The Z06 rejoins the Corvette lineup for 2015 as the most capable model in
the iconic car’s 62-year history. It stretches the performance envelope
for Corvette with unprecedented levels of aerodynamic downforce – and it
is the first Corvette Z06 to offer a supercharged engine, an eight-speed
paddle-shift automatic transmission and, thanks to a stronger aluminum
frame, a removable roof panel.
The new LT4 supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine is SAE-certified at 650 horsepower (485 kW) at 6,400
rpm and 650 lb-ft of torque (881 Nm) at 3,600 rpm – making the 2015
Corvette Z06 the most powerful production car ever from General Motors and
one of the most powerful production cars available in the United States.
With the available Z07 package, its capability enables:
0-60 mph acceleration in 2.95 seconds with the eight-speed automatic and
3.2 seconds with the seven-speed manual transmission
Quarter-mile times of 10.95 seconds at 127 mph with the eight-speed and
11.2 seconds at 127 mph with the seven-speed transmission a
Lateral acceleration of 1.2 g.
60-0 mph braking in only 99.6 feet – the best of any production car
tested by General Motors.
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 :(

2014 Chevy Corvette C7 Stingray Interview Video with Harlan Charles @ 2013 Detroit Auto Show
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 Stingray.
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."

SUPERCHARGED 2014 CORVETTE, WIDEBODY & DRIFTING at SEMA!
Get your Triple-X T-shirts, hoodies, koozies, stickers, DVD's & more at
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!

Corvette C7 vs Porsche Cayman S
Check my other test drives at http://lotus-111.com
2014 C7 Corvette tested at Las Vegas Motorsport Speedway.
The 2013 Porsche Cayman S was also tested on the same track.
The real surprise came from the Corvette.
The C7 is a real step up from the C6. The chassis is much stiffer, and the
engine, even in this soft tune, is a real joy. The steering feel is good,
unlike the Cayman where the mechanical connection is purely inexistent.
The braking of the C7 is also very solid, stable, and with decent pedal
The only bad surprise cam form the auto box, that cannot match the PDK. I
wish I could test the manual trans on the C7, which is in my opinion, the
one to chose for track action. Finally, the only real negative feeling was
related to the calibration of the ESP and traction control, very intrusive
compared to the german rival, knowing that I was not allowed to neither to
turn them into Sport Plus mode, nor simply disconnecting them, of course...
At the end of the day, the Corvette is fastest with 55'76, which could be
the fastest this car had even been flapped here (as my instructor said).
However, with 150HP less and far less mechanical excitement, the Cayman is
just a tiny bit slower with 56'36. The Cayman is therefore a well sorted
and performant car, but definitely miss the appeal as a driver's car, of
the C7 strength.
