Closest finish in Rolex 24 race history
Garcia, Magnussen, Rockenfeller second in No. 3 Corvette
Second straight Rolex 24 win for Corvette Racing and third since 2001
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - A 24-hour race came down to 0.034 seconds Sunday as Corvette Racing won the 54th Rolex 24 At Daytona when the team's pair of Chevrolet Corvette C7.R race cars finished 1-2 in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) class.

Oliver Gavin, Tommy Milner and Marcel Fässler drove the winning No. 4 Corvette C7.R with Gavin holding off teammate Antonio Garcia in the No. 3 Corvette C7.R. The two finished side-by-side with Gavin taking the checkered flag by a matter of inches. Each of the Corvettes completed 722 laps for 2,570.32 miles. The margin of victory set a Rolex 24 record.

"We thought this was going to be a great weekend because we had a couple of additional competitors in the series this year," said Mark Reuss, General Motors Executive Vice President, Global Product Development. "I'll tell you, this is the second year in row we placed both Corvette C7.Rs on the podium. I couldn't be prouder of the team because they all worked so hard. They know how to win because it is a great team, and it is a great car. Honestly, that is what it is all about. It was an outstanding weekend.

"This is Daytona Rising right here," Reuss added.

Aftermarket Retro C7

Options are a good thing, for we can always go thumbs up or thumbs down. And if the later, we get to choose not to buy.

Depending on who you talk to, some may say it’s a good thing retro is out. In the early to mid ’00s, retro was all the rage. The design trend spawned the previous-generation Mustang, Chevrolet SSR and the Volkswagen New Beetle.

Now, as we march through the ‘010s, contemporary style is beginning to take shape. But, retro can still be cool. Especially this little mashup seen here.

Zolland Design has taken the C2 Corvette and C7 Corvette, and created one unified Stingray. We have a feeling this will split opinions, but, in all honesty, we think it’s pretty damn cool.

The front clip sees retro cues such as the split chrome bumper and more angular front end in general. The greenhouse sees a much rounder look from the current C7 Corvette, but the rear is where most of the changes take place.

Zolland Design Corvette Rendering Rear

Again, we have split chrome style with a modern interpretation of the C2 rear with the block-style taillamps from the C7. The retro-licious wheels are the icing on the cake.

While we’re glad the C7 Corvette looks the way it does, we can’t help but dig this poster-style Corvette rendering for what it is.

Surprising/Major C7 News

Jan 14, 2016 - 1:02 PM - by elegant
Thanks to Mike Furman@Criswell Chevrolet, we have learned that the last day to place an order for a 2016 is moved up this year, to Thursday, April 28th. Interesting, and perhaps not so coincidentally, this leads to speculation on my part that the 2017's might contain some desirable changes, especially as that very date, April 28th, is when the 2017's are revealed. However, the only facts we have on ordering is that the 2016 order banks are closing that day, and that the 2017's will be revealed that very morning.

And 2016/2017 color news, also thanks to Mike Furman, and this is huge and will be sure to disappoint many, but again is a confirmed fact, that the last day to order Shark Gray (it is going away!!!), is April 14, 2016. It will not be reappearing as a 2017 color.

And if that were not enough surprising news, Mike has shared that the last day to order Laguna Blue is April 28, 2016, for it too will not be an available 2017 color.
