 Because Dubai is a rather silly land, today we bring you this - a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray that's just joined the Dubai Fire Brigade. Courtesy of our friends at Drive Arabia, we wouldn't expect to see this at the scene of many actual fires.
 
 Instead, this is more or less a publicity stunt on wheels, meant to draw attention to the Fire Brigade at local events and car shows. Aside from the lightbar, it looks mostly like a stock C7 Stingray. The livery, neon yellow and red, is fairly fetching, giving this Vette an even greater aesthetic impact than it already enjoys.

 Are you the 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06? [UPDATE]

   2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

 We have on good authority that this is the all-new Chevrolet Corvette Z06, the hotter version of the 455-horsepower Corvette Stingray. Feast your eyes upon it, and know that we'll have a lot more when it makes its official debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.
 
  First, you'll notice we're calling it "Z06" instead of "Z07." That's because Chevy isn't going to shake things up too drastically, despite a previous report from Car and Driver. Like the C6, the model will be called Z06, but there will be a Z07 package. It's not clear what that will entail, but on the C6 generation, it included a number of upmarket style and performance features from the Corvette ZR1. As there is no ZR1 yet, we've no idea what to expect.
 
 As we're still a bit in the dark in terms of details, here's what we think we know: It's very likely that the Z06 will receive a forced-induction engine. We previously reported that that could mean a twin-turbocharged setup, but considering GM's aversion to big, turbocharged engines in favor of big, supercharged engines, it'd be foolish to not consider that the Z06 will arrive wearing a blower. In fact, the engine shown above, which looks to be a supercharged LT4, has popped up on Instagram this morning thanks to American Velocity Performance. Regardless of what extras Chevy fits to the 6.2-liter V8 (that's right, the 7.0-liter is rumored to be kaput), power output is expected to far outpace the 505-horsepower of the C6 Z06, with rumors of over 600 ponies.
 
 Visually, the Z06 looks even more aggressive than the already pugnacious Stingray, with prominent side sills and rear fender ducting, a jutting front air dam and a much larger rear spoiler. Note, too, the absence of the Stingray's namesake silver emblems on the front fenders.
 
 We'll have much, much more on the next Corvette Z06 when it makes its live debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show in January. Until then, have your say about this newer, hotter Vette. Is 600 hp enough? Would forced induction ruin the whole point of the track-minded Z06? Let us know in Comments.
 
 UPDATE: It appears that the yellow Corvette above is a well-done Photoshop product, not the real Z06. That said, we still believe it to be a very close representation of the real thing. The engine pic, however, is still believed to be authentic.

 Chevy Corvette to get eight-speed automatic transmission

   2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible interior

 It used to be that manual transmissions almost invariably had more speeds than their automatic counterparts. A car with a five-speed stick might have a four-speed or even three-speed slushbox, while another might offer the choice between a six-speed manual and a five-speed automatic. But that's quickly changing. These days we're seeing automatic transmissions emerge with seven, eight or even nine forward gears, and there's really a limit to how many gears you can expect a driver to shift on their own.
 
 One notable exception (or throwback, depending on your perspective) is the 2014 Corvette Stingray, which comes with a seven-speed manual or six-speed automatic. But that, according to the latest industry intel, is about to change. Speaking with Chevrolet spokesman Monte Doran and citing a Society of Automotive Engineers' paper that's since been taken down, Edmunds reports that General Motors is preparing to shoehorn an eight-speed automatic into the new Corvette. The gearbox, according to Edmunds, is codenamed 8L90, and considering that GM doesn't have another eight-speed gearbox to slot into the Corvette, we're assuming this is an entirely new transmission for the company.
 
 We'd also have to assume that the new eight-speed will replace (and not join) the long-serving six-speed automatic in the Stingray, and will probably not be offered in the soon-to-be-released, track-focused Z06 - but will surely prove a popular option on the Stingray coupe and convertible. As we reported in October, even with the current six-speed auto, three-out-of-five early Corvette buyers are specifying the two-pedal setup, with Chevy expecting that ratio to climb as time goes on. We can also expect improved fuel economy numbers to result, but whether performance will improve with the addition of two more gears remains to be seen.    News Source: SAE via Edmunds

 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible [w/video]   20 Seconds More Fun Than Before

 About 20 seconds, and 30 miles per hour. These are, if not the most heart-thumping statistics you need to know before continuing to read the rest of this review, the most pertinent to get out of the way. What are they? The amount of time it takes, according to our stopwatches, for the power-operated fabric roof to hide itself entirely inside the bodywork of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible, and the maximum speed at which that action can be performed.
 
 Because, of course, when piloting a brand-new Chevy Corvette Convertible for the very first time, there is absolutely no reason the top should be up. It's cold outside? Fine, blast some heat. It's raining? No problem; once you're moving at speed, the showering blast from above will be obliterated by the car's own jetstream. Snowing? For heaven's sake, either put on some appropriately wide winter tires or park the 'Vette in the garage and take the Cruze, you big baby.
 
 And so it was that I layered on a second hoodie, slipped on my sunglasses and plopped myself inside the new-for-2014 Corvette Convertible. First thing's first; the top must go down. Just 20 seconds later, I was ready to continue, the sound of 6.2 liters of American V8 muscle filling the open-topped cabin, a sinewy stretch of roadway near Palm Springs, California, spread out ahead. 
 






 
The angularity of its sharply creased lines are not spoiled by the removal of its top.
 
As I drove off through the boring stretch of city toward the mountains that were my destination, I couldn't help but notice how many people stop and stare at a bright blue Corvette Convertible. If you're an introvert, this is not the supercar for you.
 
 Much has been said about how the new Corvette looks, and to all of that I'll add that the angularity of its sharply creased lines are not spoiled by the removal of its top. There's an overall exaggerated wedge shape that starts low ahead of the front wheels and slowly rises to the car's fat and flat rear haunches. The bodysides are much more defined than the previous generation, highlighted by the slash-like front fender vents that match the heat extractors atop the hood.
 
 Other details worth pointing out are the headlights and their LED-lit clusters, the taillights' deep internal recesses, the four shotgun-shaped exhaust tips peaking out the rear valence and the highly stylized Corvette insignia that was redesigned for this seventh-generation sports car.
 
 As with previous Corvette designs since the third-generation model appeared in 1968, there are massive peaked fenders that do somewhat obstruct the driver's view out of the windshield while looking quite aggressive. There are bits that look like mini headrests behind the actual headrests of the seats, which helps to visually break up the flat surface of the piece that covers over the convertible top in its stowed position.
 
 
 



 
Chevy is happy to report it required absolutely zero additional stiffening in its transformation from hardtop to droptop.
 
Whether or not the convertible is actually better- or worse-looking than its hardtop counterpart is a matter of preference, of course, but my personal eyes prefer the hardtop in appearance. I prefer the convertible, however, from behind the wheel.
 
 Perhaps it's the rush of wind that makes a convertible so enticing, or the burbling and wailing exhaust note making its way unencumbered to your eardrums. Perhaps it's a little bit of both, the combined senses serving to make everything seem just a bit faster, more reckless. Perhaps it doesn't matter. All I know is that driving a good convertible on a perfectly crisp day with the top down is one of life's most rewarding motoring moments, and that's especially true when the car on which it is based is as good as the 2014 Corvette Stingray. And make no mistake, the latest Corvette is exquisite.
 
 The inherent goodness of the Corvette Stingray starts with its aluminum-intensive chassis structure, which is 57-percent stiffer than the previous generation and 99 pounds lighter, and which Chevy is happy to report it required absolutely zero additional stiffening in its transformation from hardtop to droptop. In fact, Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Jeuchter tells us that the 2014 Stingray Convertible is stiffer than the McLaren MP4-12C Spider, at least when measured on Chevy's equipment.
 
 The actual act of dropping the top is extremely simple. There are no manual latches to be found, with only one button needing to be pressed and held for the duration of the electronic dance. And, as was alluded to before, the top can be operated at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour – Chevy engineers explained that it could be operated at much higher speeds, but they had to take wind speed into account, as well. Once stowed, the top is completely invisible under a one-piece cover that I personally witnessed close without properly sealing in one instance out of a few dozen.
 
 

 
In one unfortunate omission, however, the steering wheel cannot be heated.
 
With the top firmly and electronically latched in place, enclosing the cabin, wind noise is relatively well managed, and I didn't see any hints of moisture making its way through the seals in the lone rain storm I suffered through. Visibility is somewhat compromised over each shoulder, naturally, but it's not exactly claustrophobic inside.
 
 Even when enclosed, the 2014 Stingray is a pretty nice place to be. Seats are comfortable, supportive, and importantly for a nice convertible, can be optionally heated or cooled. In one unfortunate omission, however, the steering wheel cannot be heated, regardless of how many option packages you check. Bolstering from the standard thrones is pretty good, but stepping up a notch to the $2,500 Competition Sport Bucket Seats isn't a bad idea if you plan to drive aggressively or at a race track on a regular basis.
 
 The digital gauge cluster in front of the driver is clear, and the amount of information it can offer the driver on its eight reconfigurable inches of LCD area beats that of any traditional gauge cluster I've seen. A head-up display on 3LT models puts the most pertinent information directly in front of the driver where it's easiest to see. Navigation is optional, though thankfully the eight-inch screen equipped with Chevy's MyLink technology suite is standard, as is a helpful little storage cubby behind that screen.
 
 The C6 Corvette, when it was first introduced in 2005, had an interior that was much improved over the C5, which in turn was a nicer place to be than the C4 that preceded it. I'm happy to see that the steadily improving interior accommodations have continued with the C7. That said, I happen to think that people will indeed be clamoring for a nicer interior when the C8 hits the scene, whenever that happens to be, because while it's a significant improvement over its predecessor, the latest Stingray is still several steps behind the luxed-up confines of cars like the Audi R8 and Porsche 911. Granted, those steeds are more expensive than the Corvette by a large margin, but they are indeed the types of cars with which the 'Vette must be compared. It's possible to raise the standards inside the 2014 Stingray with options – most notably the 3LT package (as seen in our images above and below) and its $8,000-plus premium – but even in this best-case scenario, you won't exactly be ensconced in the very finest of luxury trimmings.
 
 
 
 Thing is, the Corvette has long been known for performance first, with beauty and comfort trailing, struggling to keep up like a little kid who doesn't want to be left behind when his big brother goes out to play with friends. Beauty and comfort aren't falling so far back anymore, but this performance-first attitude has never been more pronounced than in 2014.
 
 
The Z51 is a bargain and a package you want.
 
First off, you really should be checking the $2,800 Z51 box on the order sheet. For that easy-to-digest sum, Chevy loads the 'Vette up with an amazing amount of kit that includes an electronically locking differential, 13.6-inch slotted front brake rotors (one inch larger than stock), a stiffened and retuned suspension and 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels shod in sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP summer tires, not to mention the dry-sump engine lubrication, coolers for the transmission and differential and revised gear ratios. In other words, the Z51 is a bargain and a package you want.
 
 GM's 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine pounds out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque when equipped with the dual-mode performance exhaust (which, at $1,195, you also want) or 455 hp and 460 lb-ft in standard trim. Power goes to the rear wheels through the buyer's choice of a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters or, if the buyer is smart, a seven-speed manual gearbox equipped with an excellent rev-matching feature that automatically blips the throttle when downshifting. It's an excellent gearbox, with short throws, positive action and a clutch that's easy to modulate while being stiff enough to remind you how many horses you're corralling underfoot.
 
 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible
 
 
Removing the roof adds an extra stage of drama and lets much more of the engine's beastly soundtrack filter in.
 
Using the handy-dandy Launch Control feature – scroll the drive mode dial through Weather, Eco, Tour and Sport to put the Corvette into Track mode, then hit the controller's button until a light on the dash confirms Launch Control – the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible with Z51 Package will fling itself from 0-60 in just 3.8 seconds. Those figures are an exact match for the Coupe, except that removing the roof adds an extra stage of drama and lets much more of the engine's beastly soundtrack filter in. Keep it planted and you won't stop accelerating until the needle hits 190, but not after seeing a quarter-mile whiz by in 12 seconds flat.
 
 With the beautiful beast of an engine sitting up front, you might expect somewhat sloppy handling, but the reality is that the Corvette, with its transaxle sitting all the way at the back of the car, has perfect 50/50 weight distribution and holds its grip on the tarmac to the tune of 1.03 lateral Gs. More impressive, though, is the confidence at which the Stingray delivers such performance. There's simply no understeer to speak of, and the car's mid-corner attitude is so easily controllable with the throttle that the Corvette would make an excellent car in which to learn to drive fast.
 
 Considering the extreme grip that the Stingray Convertible is capable of, the ride is downright comfortable. If your backside is particularly sensitive, or if you want the absolute best suspension setup available, consider the optional Magnetic Selective Ride Control and Performance Traction Management system a wise investment at $1,975.
 
 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible
 
 
That sum, in base trim, is a tidy $5,000 increase over the Corvette Stingray Coupe.
 
Steering feel is excellent, as is braking performance, particularly with the Z51's ventilated rotors. I did miss a few shifts when I wasn't paying rapt attention, usually from second to third, and the oft-derided skip shift feature that forces you from first to fourth is still included in a nod to emissions and economy. Chevy's Jeuchter says the alternative would be Stop/Start, and he doesn't think Corvette owners are ready for that leap quite yet. I'd rather have the Stop/Start, since that at least would be defeatable with a button...
 
 You've read about a lot of performance and a lot of options by now, but here's the quick takeaway: With its base price of $56,000 in Convertible form, or $58,800 in Z51 1LT trim, no car offers more performance for less money than the 2014 Corvette Stingray. While a fully optioned model can easily crest $70,000, keen use of the options sheet can result in a Stingray Convertible with the Z51 Package, the seven-speed gearbox, Magnetic Selective Ride Control, dual-mode Performance exhaust, Competition Sport Bucket seats and navigation for $66,075 out the door in your choice of color.
 
 For those keeping track, that sum, in base trim, is a tidy $5,000 increase over the Corvette Stingray Coupe. That's a pretty sweet deal if you've got the means to afford it... and, of course, an extra 20 seconds or so to spare before most every trip out of the garage. And don't worry about all those gawkers – they're just jealous.     Related Gallery2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible: First Drive2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible: First Drive2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible: First Drive2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible: First Drive2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible: First Drive2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible: First Drive2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible: First Drive2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible: First Drive2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible: First Drive   Image Credit: Copyright 2013 Jeremy Korzeniewski / AOL

     Imagine, if you will, that you began living under a rock from January 13, 2013 on, and only emerged long enough to purchase a sixth-generation Chevrolet Corvette. You had no knowledge of the heavily redesigned, seventh-generation Corvette - it's shapely new body and enthusiast-infuriating rear taillights were as foreign as the Bhagavad Gita recited in Klingon. On one of your rare outings from your rocky dwelling and behind the wheel of your C6 Vette, though, you stumbled upon one of Chevy's new Stingrays and were completely taken by it.
     
     But, rather than going out and trying to buy one of the new cars, you'd rather keep your C6. What's a rock-dwelling Vette driver to do? Well, if you have about $60,000 handy, you pick up Supervettes' new SV8.R conversion. Designed to transform any 2005 to 2013 C6 into a sharper looking, more modern Corvette, it features a carbon-fiber body that's supposedly been inspired by older Corvettes, while still borrowing heavily from the C7. Unlike the new Stingray, though, the Supervettes SV8.R retains four round taillights, and it is said to be five inches wider than a C6 ZR1.
     
     Other changes that come with the kit include new 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels shod in Pirelli Pzero tires. A new exhaust, new brakes, new lighting and a fresh coat of paint for the car's new body are also included. Eventually, interior treatments will be available, as well as exposed carbon-fiber options. Five pre-orders are available, starting at $59,995, while future orders will cost an even $65K. We will say, as conversion kits go, we've certainly seen worse than what Supervettes has put together.
     
     We've got images of the Supervettes kit above and in a variety of different colors. There's also a full press release about the design process available below. As a final parting thought, we'd just like to take this opportunity to remind any reading this that a brand-new 2014 Corvette Stingray can be had for less than the price of this kit. Just sayin'...

     There isn't much we're allowed to tell you about the 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06... yet. What we can say is that we're extremely excited for the car's official live debut at the Detroit Auto Show next week. And we can also show you some images, courtesy of an accidental leak by Left Lane News spotted by an Autoblog reader named Jarrod (since removed) and a follow-up post from the boys at Jalopnik.
     
     As you can see, the new Corvette Z06 will boast plenty of add-on aero bits designed to keep the car connected to the tarmac at speeds that we'd assume would be up near the 200-mph mark. We see a deeply vented hood, a large rear spoiler, an aggressive front splitter and additional cooling vents in the fender, rear quarter and hind haunches.
     
     Looking closely at the interior image reveals what appears to be paddle shifters that don't match the what we'd expect to be seeing with a manual transmission. What that means, exactly, is sure to be revealed in short order. There's no data just yet on what's powering the new Z06, but we've seen indications of well over 600 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque, and we're not expecting to be disappointed on the power front.
     
     We're sure you're just as excited as we are. Check out the leaked images above.    News Source: Left Lane News, Jalopnik

    Chouette ! En gros, on peut avoir une C6 qui ne ressemble plus à grand chose en lui ajoutant juste le prix d'une C7 neuve ...  :confus:

    Méchante la C7 Z06 :chaud:
    Pourquoi rester classique lorsque l'on peut-être unique
