Who doesn’t love spoiling babies and instinctively protecting them, not trusting anyone else in that matter? Just imagining handing them over to somebody would give you that feeling of dread in the pit of your stomach and the idea of it being “just another car” doesn’t help reduce it. For our customers who harbor similar affections for their 2015 Chevrolet Corvettes, that risk factor is about to end.
The latest Valet Mode, combined with the Performance Data Recorder, is the first of its kind in the industry. It will allow drivers to (a) lock the interior stage, (b) close the infotainment, and (c) record audio, video, and the vehicle data.
According to Harlan Charles, the product manager for Corvette, this would be the baby monitor for the car. And where the Corvette Valet Mode that was introduced in 2014 functioned by locking the glove box, the storage bin, and shutting down the radio and infotainment system when accessed and activated with a 4-digit code, the Performance Data Recorder enables them to also document the in-car radio, the HD video, and other vehicle data. One of the best features is the inclusion of an 8” color touchscreen to play the video, which, on the other hand, can be downloaded and viewed on a computer too.
Although it was primarily aimed to be a tracking tool for drivers to record their laps and using it for improving later, the creative heads behind were able to take it further and make the application multifaceted once it’s turned on.
The components include a 720p, high-definition camera, a dedicated microphone, a self-contained telemetry recorder, and, last but not the least, a corresponding SD-card slot. Moreover, there are three different data overlay options as well as Cosworth Toolbox software.
Chevy Corvette Z06 LT4 will be available for San Diego residents by the end of 2014 at Courtesy Chevrolet.
The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette will boast 650hp, making it the most powerful car among the General Motor catalogue.
With a supercharged 6.2 liter V8 that is capable of cranking out 650horsepower, the 2015 Corvette Zo6 LT4 will join a handful of exclusive cars that boast above 600hp in the US. Not only that, it will also be able to produce the same amount of torque at 650 pounds per feet, which is typically unheard of.
“A car may have above 500 or even 600 horsepower, but what is the point of all that power when it isn’t delivered properly?” said Steve Kruger, sales manager at Courtesy Chevrolet, one of the leading Chevrolet dealerships in San Diego. “Torque is the ability of the engine to deliver the magnanimous power it produces, allowing it to respond at a faster pace. With insufficient torque, the car will simply start spinning out of control!”
Compared to its nearest competition from Ferrari, the F12 Berlinetta, the Corvette boasts 88% of its horsepower while boasting 28% more torque. The Corvette Zo6 also outshines another Italian rival, the Porsche 911 Turbo S, by more than 85hp, while costing a fraction as much. It is the first time that Chevrolet has offered an automatic transmission on Zo6 models, albeit a six speed one.
The LT4 is also able to reach a maximum RPM limit of up to 20,000, which is accomplished by minimizing the rotors to a lower diameter. This makes the Corvette Zo6 rowdier than its ZR1 counterpart, while allowing it to produce huge amounts of power in the starting band.
“Vettes are as American as they come, embodying the spirit of a classic American muscle in a modern package.”
The Corvette has had a long and illustrious history in North America, especially in San Diego, where there are dedicated Corvette exclusive clubs and events taking place each year. One of the most widely attended events is the ‘Vettes for Vets’, which takes place during the fall season in the North side to honor war veterans. The event features Corvettes ranging from the old 50’s models to the newer ones.
Other than that, Chevrolet’s parent company General Motors has also honored war veterans by offering them huge discounts ranging in 4 digit figures on purchase of a Chevrolet model, including the Corvette.
The Zo6 LT4 will be available for San Diego residents by the end of 2014 at Courtesy Chevrolet.
