2014 Corvette Stingray twins spotted in the wildThu, 23 May 2013
Sure, we've seen the new Corvette Stingray, crawled all over the C7 at car shows, seen interior 360 videos of it and maybe, just maybe, had some time behind the wheel (you'll know soon enough). But there's something special about spotting the car on public roads -- there's something even more special about spotting a pair of them nose-to-tail in rush-hour traffic.
The new Corvette in front appears to be Crystal red tintcoat, a darker, extra-cost color. The rear C7 is in Torch red, approximately the same color as the Chevy Sonic RS we happened to be driving. Whether the photos convey it or not, the Stingray looks ridiculously good on the road, from every angle.
These are definitely GM-owned vehicles, made apparent by the "M" or manufacturer plates, and we can also attest to the fact that they were being driven with what must have been herculean restraint, given that the posted speed limit was 35 mph and both Corvettes stayed within 5 mph of that number during our short chase.
Note that all photos were taken while stopped at a red light.
