The Denim Chin is given an exclusive presentation of the all-new Corvette Stingray by GM design chief Ed Welburn.
It's because he's Jay Leno, that's why. The Denim Chin is not only given an exclusive personal look at the all-new Corvette Stingray but also gets to discuss the car with the head of GM design, Ed Welburn. Building on the long history of the Vette, Welburn states that it was important to find a younger audience along with satisfying existing fans and owners. Welburn proudly adds that everything is new inside and out.
Leno is also a longtime Corvette fan and it's clear he's impressed with the C7's standard V8 that packs 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. Yes, that's the base car which has the same power as the outgoing Z06. It's a car worthy of the Stingray name.
