...you mean see it in the fiberglass :D

Pics i'm undecided.. But I had the same reaction when the C5 and the C6 came out.

Until I see one in person driving down the road I'll reserve judgement.

Corvette's have aways been about performance value.. as long as it ticks that box that's the most important part IMO.

While the 'branding' is quite evident in the tail lights, I don't find it to be bad. A little too ricer-boyish towards the lower outer corners of the rear end, but other than that I love it.

Espescially the air intake vents for the mid/rear mounted engine!

2014 Corvette Stingray Comes to Gran Turismo 5: New Screenshots & Video Released
Gran Turismo 5 January 14th, 2013 by Jordan

The all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray is the talk of the automotive world today after it was first officially unveiled to the public at a special event last night, and Gran Turismo 5 players will be the first to drive the car, finally free of its camouflage.
The Stingray will produce an estimated 450 horsepower and 450 ft. lbs. of torque, is capable of accelerating from 0-60 in less than four seconds and will achieve more than 1g in cornering grip. It will also be the most fuel efficient Corvette ever, exceeding the EPA estimated 26 mpg of the current model.
During the creation of the virtual Corvette Stingray, careful attention was paid to each detail of the new design inside and out, all the way down to the shift schedule for the 7-speed manual transmission.
“The Polyphony team has had an unforgettable experience getting to know the Corvette Stingray, inside and out, and bringing it into Gran Turismo 5,” said Kazunori Yamauchi. “We’re excited to share our experience with fans and let them feel, explore and drive the Corvette in a way that wasn’t possible until now.”
As reported in the press release, over half a million people have downloaded the camouflaged prototype version of the car since it was first revealed in the game last November.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray will be available as a free download from the PlayStation Store starting Tuesday, January 15, 2013.

Love reading the comments on blogs.. "Ew why would they black out the A pillar!?"... Or vents not being body color.. Or anything else so trivial.

I'd say anyone criticizing A-pillar finish probably won't be buying one anyways..

Interior looks nice.. Although I never really saw much wrong with the old ones. Functional, basic, I dunno. New one is like mission control, love how Jalopnik puts it: "leather and carbon fibre sex chamber"

The more I look at it, the more I like it, but the rear looks too cluttered. The side looks like a stretched out GTR. Its almost like Chevy was trying out the Nissan GTR's Gundam robot styling. Front is perfect.

My gramma had one. Bench seat, Delco AM radio (no tape) 2 speaker aound system, growly yet lethargic 2.5L 4tech and all. Getting out of my 87 accord and into the celebrity was like Night and day. Actually.. The celebrity was like a time machine. It was like going back 20 years in the blink of an eye. It was a poorly thought out, cramped, compact shitbox that, if introduced in 1967, would have felt like the not so distant and slightly depressing future.

Downloaded and took for a rip in GT5 last night:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v221/Spiderman_Cavy/GT5/CircuitdelaSarthe2009_14.jpg

A lot less squirmy than the C5 and more responsive steering than the C6 (in game). Don't know if that translate true in the real world, but it was quite fun to drive and sounds really throaty too. Again, not sure how close to real life that truly is.

In the game, it cannot be painted, comes in a choice of 2 colours (Charcoal or Red) and cannot be modified at all.

The mere mention of campers and RVs invokes images of cramped living quarters that can house only your essentials. But the Elemment Palazzo with its lavish fixture and ornate designs obliterates that notion completely. As it should, what with a coronary-inducing price tag of $3 million.
Austrian company Marchi Mobile designed Palazzo as part of its Elemment line of luxury vehicles that very visibly displays the trappings of wealth. You’ll see in Palazzo what you never thought you’d see inside an RV. Master bedroom with an adjoining bathroom? Check. Leather interior? Check. Rainfall shower, fireplace, and 40″ TVs? Check, check, check.
Impressive enough as it is, it doesn’t end there — the 40′ long Palazzo also has a pop-out bar replete with a skylight andunderfloor heating that you can activate by pushing a single button. The bar adds 80% more room to the camper’s original 430 square feet floor space. When it comes to the exterior side of things, you may or may not be glad to know (depending on how you feel about it) that the Palazzo is covered in glow-in-the-dark paint.
The 20-ton Palazzo can reach speeds of 93 mph, and uses 20% less fuel than vehicles of comparable size due to its aerodynamic design. The designers at Marchi Mobile say Palazzo is completely customizable, and if you have more money to spare, they’d welcome any outrageous modifications, going as far as to cover it in diamonds.

General Motors announced that production of the 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe has begun and that it has started shipping the all-new 7th generation Corvette to dealers from the Bowling Green, Kentucky facility where the sports cars are assembled.



About 1,000 C7 Corvettes have been made so far at the Bowling Green plant, which has assembled Corvettes since 1981. That factory was the recipient of a $131 million dollar investment to produce the new Vette, including $52 million spent to upgrade the factory’s body shop so it can manufacture the Coupe’s all aluminum frame in house for the first time.
The all aluminum frame is also a first for the base Corvette. Though Z06 and ZR1 models of the previous generation Vette had light alloy frame components, the base C6 Corvette coupe came with a hydroformed steel frame. In addition to the upgrades to Bowling Green’s body shop, GM is also moving their Performance Build Center (http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2012/09/behind-the-scenes-general-motors-production-build-center-building-the-ls9-engine/), where the higher performance versions of GM’s LS family of engines are hand-built (http://www.autonews.com/article/20130914/OEM01/309169997/gm-to-move-hand-built-engine-program#axzz2fLwb7dv3), from Wixom, Michigan to the Kentucky facility.


GM’s “build your own engine” program, which allowed purchasers of cars with those performance engines (or buyers of similar crate motors) to put their engines together under the supervision of the highly skilled PBC employees, will be reestablished after the move and GM is saying that the experience will be upgraded. With the engine build facility adjacent to the final assembly plant, buyers will likely get to see the engine they build installed in the car they are buying.

I've been following the C7 closely everyday and there is def one in my future. I think it's a game changer for the brand and a real step in the right direction. They have (apparently) addressed the long time seat and interior issues which has always been the Achilles heel for the car as whole, and managed to knock the performance out of the park again. Huge skid pad numbers, and ridiculous performance traction management system regardless of price point. Not surprisingly the new LT1 is hugely mod friendly so far, with Headers and tune already turning out 40 - 50 rwhp increases. All I can say is I can't wait for the Z models!

I haven't seen one yet up close, but being a vette fanboy I'm going to say I love it regardless of what I actually think. In all honesty though, I really don't mind the new tail lights.

I probably saw the same one, but a week after you posted this (corner of Queen/Lyon). I agree, in person (and after seeing the one at Epcot too), they still look like they're made of cheap plastic. The interior looks marginally more high-end than it previously had, but not by much.

I still think it's a great and impressive car, but GM could have easily bumped up the sticker price by 10k to use some better quality materials and this car would still sell like hot cakes.

Pretty sure its for the juice and I agree it is a bit weird but seems lately everyone is trying be first for everything for the C7, so could have been an crude install. Approaching 200 mph and having one of those birds slam into the windshield would have sucked.

theres no money in a home daycare. we have 2 friends running them and they dont make all that much. I guess if NFG and you just overloaded yourself with kids (and break the law) you could make a decent profit.

and yes, we paid her and the "pro" daycare's holidays.

that is not on the high side. the price you are paying I would call a good deal. Jesus no kidding. Constitution square is nearly $1800/mo. We were lucky to find a French one at $1200/mo

We were around 800 with home day care, now that we are in stittsville we have gone to private. It's actually more than 1000, but I get 10% off for the second kid, so that's also the first part to free up.
