Well, since we are not commercial fans, we certainly remember Chevrolet’s first “Find New Roads” spot, which was launched in February, included a short scene featuring the 2014 Corvette Stingray and a virtual flying stingray.

As Chevrolet says: “The 2014Corvette Stingray was designed to take you on an unprecedented ride and unleash your subconscious. Watch and see why.” Watch the Ad on Read more!

Chevrolet provided the first look at nine high-performance concept cars at the SEMA Show. The horsepower-infused range includes stylized versions the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray, SS sports sedan and a variety of restyled 2014 Camaros – including the all-new Z/28.
“From the all-new Corvette Stingray to the new Camaro Z/28 and SS performance sedan, Chevrolet is America’s choice for performance cars. Our new lineup of racing-influenced models gives customers more choices for exciting driving experiences,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. “It’s our most diverse range of performance-car choices in nearly 20 years.”
Through the end of September, Camaro’s total sales lead over Mustang was more than 5,000 for the year, putting it on track to be the industry’s best-selling sports car under $50,000 for the fourth consecutive year. The Camaro enters 2014 with revised styling and the new Z/28 model – the most track-capable Camaro in the car’s history.
The all-new SS returns Chevrolet to its rear-wheel-drive performance sedan roots, established with the small-block V-8 in the 1950s and enhanced with the Impala SS in the early 1960s.
And Chevrolet dealers can hardly keep the all-new Corvette Stingray体育盘口 in stock, with sold orders rolling to new owners off transporters.
“Racing is the common thread among Chevrolet’s performance cars and that comes from decades of transferring race technology to our production models,” said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “Corvette, Camaro and SS deliver well-balanced, exhilarating driving experiences forged on the racetrack and refined for the street.”
Many of the concepts unveiled at the SEMA Show have roots at the racetrack. Others show racing-influenced styling for the street. Most incorporate Chevrolet Accessories available from Chevrolet dealers, allowing customers to personalize their new performancecar with factory-engineered and validated components that match the performance and quality of original equipment.

Hello guys, it’s been a while, but we come up with very extravagant 2014 Corvette Stingray Widebody by Forgiato. Some of you may think this is an ugly and useless car, but we need some crazy delivery from time to time. In record time, Forgiato Wheels put together an amazing widebody 2014Corvette Stingray for the SEMA体育盘口 Show, just months after the model was launched.
For this project, the wheel-maker collaborated with TS Designs to widen the C7′s body. This not only boosts the model’s appeal, but also makes room for predictably enormous 21-inch front and 22-inch rear rims, with teal rims and black spokes.
Besides the wheels and widened body, they also fitted LEDaccent lights to the headlights, a new front splitter and Forgiato’s special Corvette grille, which will be available to buy. It’s got charisma for miles!
As you can see, the project car is already for sale at $150,000. That’s quite a lot, but then it’s still cheaper than an Aston Martin. Check out the images and videos on Read more!
