Electric Chevrolet C2 Corvette: 1500kW ‘hyperclassic’

The instantly recognisable and bona-fide classic Chevrolet C2 Corvette is set to be reinvented as a 1470kW all-electric modern ‘hyperclassic’. Small Irish company, Studio AVA, has enlisted the help of the C2 Corvette’s original designer, Peter Brock, and Jaguar, Aston Martin and Land Rover stylist Ian Callum, to help create what it hopes will combine “hyper-modern power and performance” with “the body and soul of a classic”.

These old car seats are selling for $126,000

A set of worn-out car seats are up for sale in the United States for the steep sum of USD$90,000 (AUD$126,466) thanks to their title as "the first Corvette seats ever made". The seats were originally installed in the 1952 EX-52 Project Opel, or 'Cougar' – one of the first iterations of the Chevrolet Corvette as we know it today. The 'Cougar' was one of five pre-production Corvette prototypes to be built with tracking numbers between 852-856 – the Cougar was number 852.

When we’re not creating it ourselves, the CarAdvice team spends a lot of time finding and consuming motoring content from all over the world. Here’s a handful of the photos, articles, videos or social media posts that most caught our eye last week. Some of them are brand new, others have been online for a while. Enjoy them – just not too much, okay? We might spend our time lusting over some America-only cars, but it turns out some Americans think the grass is greener in Australia.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible revealed

The latest C8 series of Chevrolet Corvette switched to a mid-engine layout for the first time, and now the convertible brings another dramatic change to the line – a retractable hardtop roof. The Corvette convertible maintains the coupe’s sleek profile, though the placement of the roof mechanism means there’s no longer a window to the engine. The roof is body-coloured by default but you can opt for it and the flying buttresses to be painted in contrasting Carbon Flash metallic grey.

2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette: Interior leaked

The eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette’s interior has leaked ahead of its official reveal later today. The C8’s interior is heavily driver-focused, with the leather trim and red stitching creating a ‘cocoon’ around them, based on the pictures posted by Bozi Tatarevic on Twitter. In the centre of the dashboard is a large infotainment touchscreen pointing towards the driver. Below the screen are the shift controls, which are now individual buttons as opposed to a traditional stick.
