Supercharged 2014 Stingray would certainly be impressive

Callaway is probably best known for squeezing more performance out of various Corvette models. The company has been tweaking Corvettes for a long time and is teasing enhancements to the 2014 Corvette Stingray.

Callaway isn't offering much in the way of details on the supercharged Stingray, but it will be incredibly potent. There is no indication of when the supercharged Corvette will be available.

We're still a bit away from the actual launch of the 2014 Stingray but it seems that the supercharged, we version may be available as soon as the Stingray launches. One particularly interesting touch is what appear to be the intake runners of supercharger sticking out of the hood of the stock Corvette.

For 2015, Chevrolet is confirming earlier rumors with the addition of a standard, magnetic suspension and optional ...

Brickyard 400 Namesake Announced by Crown Royal during CMT Music Awards
Filed under: Motorsports, Sedan, Performance, Chevrolet, Specialty Last season Chevy reskinned and rebranded its NASCAR stock racer after the new SS, so we knew it would only be a matter of time before the Bowtie brand's latest muscle sedan would be pressed into duty as a pace car. And now that time has come. At the Sprint Cup race next weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, actor Chris Pratt (of Parks and Recreation, Zero Dark Thirty, Moneyball and upcoming Guardians of t ...

Two hours earlier, deep in the heart of the country’s largest city, Cadillac engineers underscored the efforts ...

Seven generations of Corvette vs. the world

General Motors CEO Mary Barra Testifies Before Senate Committee About GM's Recalls
The Corvette is America’s sports car and it has been for a very long time. Since its shaky beginnings in 1953, the Corvette quickly evolved and became a performance machine on par with the best the world had to offer. From fuel injection to independent rear suspension to disc brakes, the Corvette pioneered many of the common technological features we find today. Over its 61 year life, the Corvette’s rivals have changed and some no longer exist. But this is how each gener ...

Cadillac CTS-V

Jul 14 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

BMW International Open - Previews
The Cadillac CTS-V was launched in 2004 as a high-performance version of the CTS sedan. Aimed at fast sedans like the BMW M5 and the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, the CTS-V was powered by a 5.7-liter, LS6, V-8 engine in its first two years on the market. Shared with the C5 Corvette, the powerplant was rated at 400 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque. GM replaced the 5.7-liter with a 6.0-liter LS2 in 2006, but output remained unchanged, al ...

Five Dead, Including 2 Police Officers In Las Vegas Shooting
Who would let a kid drive a vintage Ferrari or a late model Corvette — particularly a young person with no experience using a clutch or shifting gears? The answer is a group of Vancouver-area enthusiasts who want to create interest in the car hobby among young people. Bryan Ram, a 23-year-old student in the auto collision repair program at the B.C. Institute of Technology, climbs out of a 40-year-old classic Ferrari 308GT4 with a big smile. “I wanted to learn how to drive a stick shift,” he ...

Corvette Stingray whipped up to 627 hp by Callaway

Jul 9 2014 12:12pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Sahlen's Six Hours Of The Glen
Filed under: Aftermarket, Convertible, Coupe If you under promise and over deliver, you can never disappoint people, and apparently the tuning mavens at Callaway know that lesson well. When the company announced its latest tuned Corvette a few months ago, it said that it would have roughly 620 horsepower and at least 600 pound-feet of torque. That would have been impressive gains over the stock 'Vette by itself, but the new supercharged sports car has actually ...

1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Appreciation

Jun 18 2014 8:55pm CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

Sahlen's Six Hours Of The Glen
When one hears the name Corvette, the first assumption would be to think of the 1963 Corvette Stingray, which embodies the decades long history of the American sports car. The 1963 Corvette was the only year for the famous split-window design, a feature upon which the car would build a legacy. With a front engine, rear-wheel drive layout and fiberglass body, the Corvette had all of the basic components to make it a sports car. The only thing left wou ...
