The Chevrolet Corvette has become an inseparable and important part of Americana. It represents not just performance, but success, hard work, and the values that have helped make this country the greatest that ever was and ever will be. Corvettes have inspired generations of car guys, photographers, and movie makers… and they still do.

While searching Vimeo for something cool, we stumbled across an absolutely gorgeous and well-produced tribute video to one man’s Corvette. It’s a beautiful homage to not just the Corvette, but a great city and cinematography.

What really makes this video stand out to us is how the focus isn’t on tire-screeching performance or doing donuts in the middle of an expressway. Rather, this video does away with engine noises altogether, allowing a simple symphony to play as the Corvette cruises through midnight in Miami. It’s a wonderfully shot piece that explores the curves of the Corvette, allowing it to mesh with its neon highlighted surroundings.

This video, by Chris K-reations, doesn’t attempt to hide the photography, but instead embraces it. We are then treated to some amazing sped-up camera footage of Miami and its traffic-burdened streets while the Corvette simply sits there, looking as beautiful as ever. Really, just take a few minutes, kick back, and enjoy the light show.

It can be easy to get lost in the tire smoke and dyno numbers. But this video is a wonderful reminder of the beauty that cars like the Corvette possess. So next time you see a Corvette, take a time to admire not just its performance, but its lines, curves, and looks as well.
