2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray attempts to compete globally

The first 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C7 has arrived in Europe for testing and has been developed to be a global sports car. Can it compete with Europe's supercars?

Europeans love their performance sports cars and the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C7 has arrived on Europe's shores to see how it will stand up against the world's finest supercars. Patrick Herrmann, technical manager communications at Chevrolet Europe and Cadillac Europe has one of the best jobs in the world. He will get to spend the next couple of months with the new Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray and test drive the new American sports car on Europe's roads.

Herrmann will be the first European Chevrolet employee to thoroughly test the new Stingray in Europe. The new sports car from GM was designed from the beginning to be a global supercar and it will be sold in Europe and will arrive in European dealerships in late 2013. Chevrolet Europe says that "testing procedures are part of the GM standard quality control program which is conducted for each new Chevrolet model before it goes on sale in Europe." But Chevrolet has global aspirations for the new seventh-generation Corvette.
