The middle of June means one thing in the world of road racing, and that’s that the 24 Hours of Le Mans is just around the corner. This week, Corvette Racing is working hard to get everything squared away for the race, and Team Manager Gary Pratt was able to take some time and give a tour of the pits at work.
We have the official pricing for the European-spec C7, and it seems we don’t have it so bad, after all. According to the report we heard from our friends over at Car Scoops, the Stingray going to be sold in places like the UK and Germany can expect to pay as much as $96,000 (US). Yikes.

We don’t even know where to begin with this one. We would rag on it for being a awful ’70s custom, but with a nose that’s clearly from a ’03-08 Pontiac Vibe, that’s obviously not the case. We have no clue why this ’79 Corvette received this treatment, or why anyone would do this to a Corvette.

This time, the video comes compliments of That Racing Channel, a YouTube channel dedicated to creating racing videos.

Check out the wicked Korres Project 4 Greek supercar. It’s slated to use a Corvette Z06′s 505 horsepower engine and uses a unique, patented suspension setup that will allow it to perform in a myriad of conditions.
Styled to resemble a first-gen Y-body, this custom electric vehicle features “Cragers”, billet pedals and “sterring” column, and an ice chest under the hood. One thing it doesn’t have, though, is any visible way to carry golf bags, making this really just a “cart.”

We don’t know why the arsonist targeted Robert Thrift’s white C4 Corvette , but by the time Thrift got outside with a fire extinguisher, his car was already too far gone. His torched Corvette is just the latest in a string of unexplained car fires that have police blaming a serial arsonist.
When the last fourth-gen Corvette rolled off the assembly line, Mid America Motorworks Chief Cheerleader Mike Yager was there not just to take possession of the car, but help put it together. Check out this vintage video…

It started out in life as a typical, ’69 427/4-speed Corvette of an unknown hue, and at some point during either the Ford or Carter Administrations, went under the knife to become this creation you’re looking at here. But at this asking price, it better include some of the drugs involved in its creation…

Have you ever gone on Craigslist and asked yourself, “WTF am I looking at?” We have on many occasions, and today was no different. This morning while browsing for a potential new Corvette project car, we ran across this yellow C4 with a – get this – “mock rear engine” stuffed into what used to be the trunk.
Corvette Racing recently completed its own testing, putting eight straight hours of stress-testing on their C6.R race cars. This will likely be the last Le Mans for the venerable Corvette C6, and it would be a nice sendoff to go out on top.
