    Default 2014 Corvette C7 Stingray Z51 walkaround video - me & Tim drove this!

    Got to drive the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray while at the "Chevy After Dark" event at the State Fair of Texas. Yeah, we took a small group of people to the fair after Chevy shut it down to the public, meaning no waiting lines for us ... and it was a blast.

    The 2014 Corvette Stingray is pretty amazing, 460 hp of power and quad exhaust dead center in the rear.

    Standard features of the car will include a 6.2-litre LT1 V-8 engine with displacement and pushrod architecture. Direct injection and optimized combustion hike the power while boosting the torque curves by 50 pound-feet between 2000 and 3500 rpm. GM estimates the engine will make 460 horsepower making it the most powerful standard Corvette to date.

    The interior of the car is built with real carbon fiber materials, advanced driver technology, aesthetic and aerodynamic exterior design, and Track-able Z51 Performance Package. The C7’s tech arsenal includes an electronically controlled limited-slip differential, aerodynamic lessons learned from racing, manual-transmission rev matching, and a patented means of sensing tire temperature to fine-tune the chassis.

    I just saved some changes to the video on YouTube and it can take 15 seconds or 15 minutes or 1.5 hours to get fixed, just have to play the waiting game.

    You can see the video on the Facebook page though if you can't wait.

    I have no clue what's going on with this video, but it looks like YouTube screwed up the video so I'm going to have to re-upload it.

    Video is working now! I will remove these comments later.

    What's everyone else think of the sound? The styling?

    ... Next time when I invite people to a special event ... you'd all better take me seriously. GM's not playing around, we've got access to cool stuff.

    Also. If you stop the video at 0:26 you see that the speedo is on the left with a top speed at one notch above 200 ... I guess that's 205. Took me a minute to get used to that configuration, so used to it being the other way.

    Hey @tbplus10, I got video of your getting out of the Corvette. I put it up on Google+, but I'll try to get some of these up on YouTube as well, just make them into a big video of the event.

    As my daughter said "Dad that car put a grin on your normally grumpy face!"
    Definately a fun car to drive.
