    New Pics (3/10/14) of My Brand New 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray Z51

    2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray
    3LT
    Z51
    NPP
    Black Brakes Calipers (might Powder Coat Red)
    Glass Top
    Black Wheels
    7Speed/Rev Matching mated to 460hp/460lbs torque LT1


    Mods already on order, Tint guy is coming next week if weather permits, after I get Inspection of course


    I searched and searched and did not want to wait for a build so I found this beautiful C7 Z51 in Michigan and bought it. Just arrived to my office and I took quick BS pictures. As you see the weather is trashy here in MD, and we are expecting Snow to night. This will sit in my girlfriend's garage (no, she will not have a key) until closing on my new home in 3 weeks, which works out well since weather should be getting back to decent round then. Well I do have to take it for MD Inspection Wed if the weather permits. Yes even though its new it has to be re-inspected in MD because of the laws.


    (this is not my car, but the one that inspired me to get this combo. It is exactly like mine which is in the rest of the pics, but I didn't have a PROFILE shot and that's that)

    Silver looks really good on the new Vette. Normally, not that dramatic a colour but with the black accents and wheels, it really looks good. Nice choice and enjoy your new car.

    Thanks Fellas. Love it so far, didn't expect to not though. The drive home was both fun and well disciplined. Driving on Summer tires with 460HP is not exactly a Willy Nilly thing. You have to be careful. The setup for the tech is very much like the Impala's so that shouldn't take long for me to get used to. The 7speed is very smooth, and I love the Rev Matching. Awesome car

    Awesome!!!

    Very close to what I would order, though I have loved several different combinations I've seen on C7's... Silver w/black accents has a cool/sinister look, without it being yet another all black Corvette.

    Best wishes!

    Nice and enjoy it! I like the black on silver combo, because of that color combination, I'd stay away from the red caliper as it will draw your eye to that piece and away from the overall vehicle. But that's just my opinion

    Congrats Lovely! That's a really nice Vette and I actually like a lot the color combo, specially with the window tints. Keep us posted on that baby.

    Cosmetic Mods Planned:

    1) Window Tint at 20% (appointment set for Thursday)
    2) Front Splitter mod from RPI (already ordered)
    3) Race Mesh Grille to Black-out front and surround in rear for pipes (already ordered)
    4) Taillights tinted along with side markets and rear markers (appointment set for Thursday)

    5) Possible red stripe on Wheels (debating)
    6) Possible red Brake powder coasting (debating)
    7) Seriously debating Carbon Fiber Dash. Not 100 sure on it yet. (debating)



    Engine Mods:


    Triniti or In-Tune from Diablo

    You should post a pic of all 4 of your cars together. Lined up in a semi-circle with the noses pointed toward the camera. That'd be cool.

    Yeah. It's hard to figure out. Here is a pic of the red calipers on a similar config





    Then without (exactly like mine, but with 20% tint)

    Right now, unfortunately the VSeries is in Voorhees at my house there. I had to get the Denali for all this wretched snow. I can only get two of them together until the weather gets better and I move into my new place. Seriously considering moving to Arizona in the 6 years. You said you had some beach front property to sell me out there if I remember

    I like it best without the red caliper, but I certainly don't mind them either! It's a no lose situation, she's a hot chick and looks good no matter what color her hair is!

    Thought about silver calipers? It would pop, but wouldn't be so out of place or noticeable.
