$1,050,000 to be exact
Alex Schroeder Jan 19, 2013
SOLD!!! Over a million dollars? Really Rick? Lol
Vito Portanova Jan 19, 2013
Cause Elvis is a hater. And haters are great, cause that means your doing something right.
Derek Soanes Jan 19, 2013
@elvis why are you trashing BMW in an article about the c7
Jordan Smith Jan 19, 2013
I also meant Elvis.
Jackson Michael Jan 19, 2013
No I meant Elvis
Jordan Smith Jan 19, 2013
People like him that ruin the car community.
Jackson Michael Jan 18, 2013
According to your comments you also hate every American car and Bugattis. It's people like you that ruin carbuzz
Elvis Ford Jan 18, 2013
Not Chevys or bmws. That all ok
Elvis Ford Jan 18, 2013
I like nice cars
Jackson Michael Jan 18, 2013
@Elvis judging from all 5 of your comments I think you just hate every car
Elvis Ford Jan 18, 2013
So are Chevys. The viper will best this down real soon
Elvis Ford Jan 18, 2013
BMW is trash
Jackson Michael Jan 18, 2013
@Stephen That's great...
Ashton Summers Jan 18, 2013
I would wait for the next ZR1, wouldn't be surprised if it makes close to 700hp.
Stephen Tyler Learn Jan 18, 2013
@jackson I dont like inline 6s. If you ever modify the car or change the exhaust it sounds identical to a riced out Honda
Jackson Michael Jan 18, 2013
I'm so damn excited for the new Ferrari. I'll probably make 200 comments alone lol
Felix Rhett Jan 18, 2013
*see* that is if the Enzo ever released. At this point my expectations are too high
Felix Rhett Jan 18, 2013
I doubt the Enzo will produce more comments than the vette, but we'll see.
Nodnarb Ydil Jan 18, 2013
They did the same thing with the Viper Last year with its debut. And the c7 articles have continued to provide a large number of comments, which probably translates to more viewers. Imagine the articles for the EnzoSuccessor
Jackson Michael Jan 18, 2013
Ya, the car with a better powertrain and a than the rest of its segment and around the same price is sooo overpriced
Tyler Tarbox Jan 18, 2013
@Jackson. Probably because the new Vette is much bigger news then some over priced BMW
Tim Preisinger Jan 18, 2013
I want a uncle Burrito too!!
Kyle Rawn Jan 18, 2013
I wish I had an Uncle Burrito...
Thomas William Tuer-sipos Jan 18, 2013
Haha uncle burrito
Jackson Michael Jan 18, 2013
There have been 5 corvette articles this week but I have yet to see a sing one about the new 4 series
Kyle McCullough Jan 18, 2013
Uncle burrito? Haha
Lee Gardner Jan 18, 2013
The bowling green factory is awesome me and my dad went ther a couple years back to see my uncle burrito that place was amazing
Josiah De Mar 24, 2013
Hey Justin your a dip shit if u think a car maker can't change a design over nite they have to be ready to flip a concept as we call it in the auto world do ur homework dumb ass Lexus did in less then 24hr on a super car!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Krack Shot Jan 19, 2013
This is what you get for letting ur 13yr old nephew use ur iPhone! I just want to say sorry for any comments that offended any one I did not know he was going in to chatrooms to troll or trole or what ever you call it I don't get the point of it
Krack Shot Jan 19, 2013
Justin how long have u worked GM? Or Chrysler Corp?
Edgar Jauregui Jan 19, 2013
they are made differently but the headlights remind me of the Viper's. Beautiful job GM did here though
Jorge Gonzalez Jan 19, 2013
Elvis stfu the duck bill on your hat looks like it's ten feet long, you look like a dumb ass twat. The new vette is sick.
Tim Preisinger Jan 19, 2013
Just like you Elvis
Jeremy Kertgate Jan 19, 2013
Viper > this
Jacob Burford Jan 18, 2013
The front doesn't flow for me! Prefer the Vipers front end!
Elvis Ford Jan 18, 2013
Awful front end
Jackson Michael Jan 18, 2013
Ya of you don't like corvettes you must like pt cruisers. Obviously.
Austin Lark Jan 18, 2013
Krack must be on crack
Colby Church Jan 18, 2013
@Dave then I guess you have no taste whatsoever. What's your dream car? A Pt cruiser?
Colby Church Jan 18, 2013
@Stas You're a moron. Plastic nor fiberglass even rusts, so it lasts a lot longer than metal if maintained. Corvettes are built to last. That's why most are still on the road. Smart one.
Jeff Link Jan 18, 2013
This is a horrible picture of a beautiful car. Love it in the grey! If you haven't pulled the YouTube video yet you should. This car is badass!
Justin Routh Jan 18, 2013
All the vents and everything is functional. Im sure they had time to take the viper body change it and make everything functional and as good as it is while still resembling the corvette. Youre a dumbass if you think this is a copy
Justin Routh Jan 18, 2013
@Krack this has been in development for years, do you really think they changed the whole thing 2 months ago when the viper was unvieled. Yeah thats logical im surw they coppied the viper
Krack Shot Jan 18, 2013
Hey Felix LMFAO to your post 
Stas Allen Jan 18, 2013
I like the car, except its plastic exterior which will last for about ten days of pure driving.
Krack Shot Jan 18, 2013
Ohhh nice viper oh wait i mean corvette no it's a viper or is it???? Hmmm great job GM you did it you copied another supper car!! big suprise lol
Kyle Rawn Jan 18, 2013
Oh and Felix is right
Dylan Bruder Jan 18, 2013
Thanks Kyle lol
Dave Rain Jan 18, 2013
Front end is awful
Felix Rhett Jan 18, 2013
Who knows, maybe tomorrow it will be a three-legged wildebeest, but we'll have to wait and see.
Felix Rhett Jan 18, 2013
No people, it's a viper, California, 458, 599, Cadillac elr, GTR, Camaro, Honda Civic, Audi/Lamborghini (whatever that means), LFA, Aston Martin Zagato, and 1986 Astro Van.
Logan Bartnick Jan 18, 2013
Hard to argue with that
Kyle Rawn Jan 18, 2013
No Dylan had it right. Looks like a C7
Logan Bartnick Jan 18, 2013
And side has a little LFA in it too.
Logan Bartnick Jan 18, 2013
I would say a mix of a Viper, GTR, Ferrari California, and Corvette C6.
Dylan Bruder Jan 18, 2013
Looks like a c7
Brian Johnston Jan 18, 2013
This looks nothing like the viper. Looks more like a c6 with a bodykit
Andy Sattler Jan 18, 2013
Viper
Alex Bouckley Jan 18, 2013
Looks so much like the Viper. Which is a good thing right?
Jordan Jackson Jan 18, 2013
The lighting in this pic isn't doing its paint any justice, it almost looks pink in my phone, lol
Benjamin Hardaway Jan 18, 2013
This thing looks so good.
Jay York Jan 18, 2013
Very.......busy?
Description: That same lot is now listed as the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray with a VIN ending #0001. There's no reserve and all proceeds of the sale will go to the College for Creative Studies. So if you&apo...

Yay CCS!
Curtis Clayton Jan 18, 2013
I'll be there
William Downs Jan 19, 2013
Kinda like an anti theft , people do crazy shit and if it was just the ebrake someone could easily jump in and drive off, chocks there it ain't going no where.. doesn't seem likely but doant hurt to be safe
Ryan Cardone Jan 19, 2013
What's with the wheel chocks? I mean, this thing does come with a parking brake right?? Maybe they applied too much wax to the platform. BTW, new design looks great!
Jordan Smith Jan 19, 2013
Some glacier for that burn.
William Downs Jan 18, 2013
Your " i think im the shit" look is whats rubbish
Elvis Ford Jan 18, 2013
Rubbish
Sam Harris Jan 18, 2013
Wow! I love this view. Car looks insane!
Austin Lark Jan 18, 2013
I'm really just still amazed that this is just the base level vette. The looks of this thing and the performance capabilities it has is just awesome for around 60,000. Can't wait to see one on the road especially the z06 and zr1 whenever they are out
David Parenti Jan 18, 2013
I'm still not sold on the rear end. I liked the dual circle taillights on the previous corvettes. But gotta give this car props, it's an animal.
Colby Church Jan 18, 2013
I'm loving the new rear. Pure wickedness.
supra_mkiv Jan 18, 2013
not sure if this one will grow on me with that weird rear end
Ahmed Bin Saeed Jan 18, 2013
Where is the round tail lights !!!
Kyle Rawn Jan 18, 2013
Totally looks like a Smart and a Bentley, bro. [/sarcasm]
Nick Smith Jan 18, 2013
I don't recall a Volt having a quad exhaust.
Dylan Bruder Jan 18, 2013
A volt? Seriously?
Brian Johnston Jan 18, 2013
Back end looks like a volt
Zack Kennedy Jan 18, 2013
Looks similar to lfa with the back
Daniel Kenneth Babler Jan 18, 2013
Beautiful! I love this view
Edgar Jauregui Jan 19, 2013
The interior is ok, better than the c6 by far, but not so great and Idk why I don't like the steering wheel too much. The performance will be amazing and the exterior is one of the best lookers I've seen in a while.
Zeus Mocha Jan 19, 2013
Well Elvis isn't going to be on carbuzz for too long. Nice interior, certainly not the best in the market but better than most for the price.
Franklin Barfield Jan 19, 2013
Can't wait to see what a tuner like Pratt & Miller can do wth the C7. Or Lingenfelter, Callaway or Hennessey...
Davey Edwards Jan 19, 2013
Where is Elvis from? He sounds very jealous
Josh May Jan 19, 2013
@Benjamin A used Ferrari 360
Pablo Herasme Jan 18, 2013
Ima have to sit in one of these cause it does look kinda cheap but certainly better than last gen
Jacob Burford Jan 18, 2013
Interior looked nice in release photos, but it looks a bit cheap from here! Not as cheap as the last one of course!
Elvis Ford Jan 18, 2013
It's American. It's very bad if course.
Sam Harris Jan 18, 2013
There is some biased hatred against the interior. Just because its "American" it's bad? While I agree the two tone doesn't do it any justice. It certainly isn't a bad interior by any means. People need to grow hell up and get over themselves.
Jimmy Case Jan 18, 2013
The only thing I would have liked is suede inserts on he leather but that may come on competition. I slide around WAY to much on leather.
William Downs Jan 18, 2013
This is a drivers car, this car with the z51 package will bitch slap majority of the cars on the road today... its built for people who want to go fast, and not spend a fortune buying and maintaining there car... haters are gonna hate dosnt matter what the interior looked like
William Downs Jan 18, 2013
They adressed the interior and if your not a snobby ass little girl the interior is perfectly fine, so what its not all fancy like a ferrari or bmw, but they also dont perform as good as a corvette, last as long as a vette. And in personal opinion come no where near the vette in looks.. vette is made for driving and when your driving it the interior is the last thing u care about, wiych is why ch...
William Downs Jan 18, 2013
A corvette is about driving not showing off your car to impress people,its not a german luxury car, its not an italian super car, its an american powered v8 monster that destroys almost every car in or around its price range and even one far exceding it, they spent there money on researxh and developing the vettes performance
Ben Knorr Jan 18, 2013
not a fan of the color combo, but the interior is a definite step up over the C6, even if it does appear quite busy. the way they've laid it out I think it will only enhance the driving experience
supra_mkiv Jan 18, 2013
damn people be arguing about this like it's THEIR car lol
Derek Soanes Jan 18, 2013
@jordan thought he said European my bad
Ashton Summers Jan 18, 2013
Interior would probably look better if the picture quality was better. As for materials, this is huge leap forward for corvette. Especially since we're talking about a car that will base around $60-65 before the government takes their chunk.
Ed Ashby Jan 18, 2013
It does look pretty cheap in this red. Not to mention over-designed and a bit eighties like knight rider or something. And I love a lot of American cars. Just like things a bit more austere in the interior department. Clearly I'm not the only one.
Brendan Crawford Jan 18, 2013
Uh... Why is it in second?
Pablo Herasme Jan 18, 2013
Btw this camera got contrast issues
Pablo Herasme Jan 18, 2013
It did look better in the render, but it is no means a bad interior
Louie Cucolo Jan 18, 2013
Its a seven speed right?
Ethan Amo Jan 18, 2013
I really love it...so on that note, I'm waiting for the ZR1
Patrick Schalk Jan 18, 2013
Sumair I don't know where to begin. Please tell me again how reliable Italian cars are. AND please tell me how American hasn't "earned" the respect of auto companies worldwide in ANY sense.
Sumair Inayat Jan 18, 2013
... Step up your game on the interior! I Swear this looks like Cheap plastic put together by a 5 year old! Ending the argument on this note! I Love All Cars, But Respect is Earned... So come on America Earn yours!!!
Sumair Inayat Jan 18, 2013
@William Downs - Yes if this was a Gtr with red interior we've be All about it... Why? Because its not a damn Chevy... Honestly it's just sad for me to hate on this so much, cause I actually think Corvettes & Vipers are my Fav American cars' But...
Sumair Inayat Jan 18, 2013
@Derek S - Yes! The Rs5 is a good example, Even tho Germans! But still proves my point on why American car makers just can't seem to get their interior right!!!
Sumair Inayat Jan 18, 2013
@Benjamin - Your Right no Italian Supercar sells for $60k, that's because that know how to make Quality cars! That don't invest in making Low Quality "Supercars" which the Americans excel at' We All know its True!
Tyler Tarbox Jan 18, 2013
Looks great, but I won't be buying one any time soon. I'll wait for the Z06 to come out
Aaron Barker Jan 18, 2013
Man I can't wait to get my hands on one of these....that seventh gear is gonna be fun to get used to
Patrick Schalk Jan 18, 2013
Hey Matt, remember when you asked me how you would get banned?
Tyler Tarbox Jan 18, 2013
@Lead. There are several very good world class American interiors. Vette, Viper, and CTS-V are all exceptional
Logan Bartnick Jan 18, 2013
It may not be the best, but it is a definite improvement from the last one.
Lead Peddalin Jan 18, 2013
Yeah what I said. How many real sharp American interiors are there? I think I have plenty of reasons why this is bad.
Jordan Smith Jan 18, 2013
It blows because it's American and because it blows? What logic is that?
Tyler Tarbox Jan 18, 2013
Gotta agree completely with William on this one Matt
Gurjit Singh Jan 18, 2013
@jackson it already looks aged
Jackson Michael Jan 18, 2013
I think the interior is gonna age really quickly
Gurjit Singh Jan 18, 2013
i agree with matt this car doesnt pull off two tone interior very well..
Lead Peddalin Jan 18, 2013
The controls around the NAV screen suck... Everything already looks dusty as shit... Do I need to continue? The exterior is getting better though.
Lead Peddalin Jan 18, 2013
Dudes... This interior blows. Not only because its American, but also because it just simply blows. From the steering wheel to the shift knob, to the over used red, it's bad.
Matt Piccolo Jan 18, 2013
Anyways, I don't care what u say, I know it seems to u I don't like ANY American cars, but that's not true. There're multiple American cars I like.
Matt Piccolo Jan 18, 2013
@ will, god ur dumb. I don't dislike American cars BECAUSE they're American, I don't like them bec I don't like them. I don't like the red in this bec some interiors car pull of two tone, this would not b one of them. This would look better black.
Jordan Smith Jan 18, 2013
So the all red NSX interior wasn't tacky to you Matt?
William Downs Jan 18, 2013
Still dosnt change my comment, if this was the gtrs interior with all the red you would be all over it, but cause its an american car its tacky?
Alex Bouckley Jan 18, 2013
Looks fine to me. They even copied the handle to the right of the nav from the Viper
Matt Piccolo Jan 18, 2013
There's a reason I said it would b better in all black
Matt Piccolo Jan 18, 2013
@ William, god ur a fuckin dumb ass. I'm saying the red and black look tacky, not the interior it self.
William Downs Jan 18, 2013
U may not think u are but almost everyone else on here knows u are, can argue that your not all u want but facts are facts
William Downs Jan 18, 2013
Of course it looks tacky to u its american, u really need to learn how tonot be so hard core biased against american cars, thats why no one takes your opinion on cars seriously, every time there is an american car u talk shit on them without fail, youll say one nice thing once in ablue mokn andthen turn around and find somethingto bitch
Tyler Tarbox Jan 18, 2013
@Benjamin. I don't think there are any $60K Italian cars. None that I can think of anyway. Maybe the 4C when it comes out?
Jordan Jackson Jan 18, 2013
He said Italian
Jordan Jackson Jan 18, 2013
@derek: that would be a German car...
Derek Soanes Jan 18, 2013
@benjamin an Audi rs5
Aziz Umarov Jan 18, 2013
From exterior looking much better. Like this car deserves better interior.
Matt Piccolo Jan 18, 2013
It looks really tacky, maybe it'll b better in all black
Benjamin Hardaway Jan 18, 2013
What 60 thousand dollar Italian car has interior that is much better than this ?
Sam Oglesby Jan 18, 2013
Is that centre Console wide enough
Sumair Inayat Jan 18, 2013
Absolutely Hideous, Love the performs but nothing compared to the Italians when it comes to pure beauty!
