It has been nine long years since Chevrolet came out with a new model of their iconic Corvette Stingray, and this week the latest model will be unveiled at the annual auto show held in Detroit.
This is the seventh incarnation of one of the world’s most popular luxury sports cars, and is therefore labeled as the C7. General Motors already previewed the car to the media this past Sunday, and plan on making photos and videos of their new design available to the public soon.
Some people, however, are more invested in this latest Stingray model: one hundred members of the southeastern Michigan branch of the Corvette Club are anxiously awaiting the arrival of January 19, when GM will allow them to touch and view the great car one hour before the official opening of the auto show.
Social director of the club Peter Shilland, owner of an exclusive 2009 Corvette Callaway, said:
“We want to hear from the engineers and see how far they’ve come with the C7.”
According to GM the car has a totally new design, and will be on sale beginning this coming summer.
