2015 Corvette Z06 – The Big Nasty

Chevrolet just introduced the most track capable Corvette ever, the 2015 Corvette Z06 at this year’s North American Auto Show in Detroit. The 2015 Corvette Z06 was trailered to the show with a caravan of 50 Corvette Stingrays. The Stingray was the most awarded car of the year including capturing the prestigious North American Car of The Year award voted by 49 automotive journalists. Pulling the trailer was the all new Chevrolet Silverado that was awarded North American Truck of The Year. Chevrolet revealed the new car alongside the new C7.R Corvette race car. The new Z06 and C7.R race car were developed simultaneously sharing the same chassis, engine technologies and aerodynamics strategy. The main difference is that current racing rules limit power output so the C7.R is actually less powerful than the road going Z06. By now the C7.R will have made its racing debut at this year’s 24HRS of Daytona race at the end of January.

The all-new 2014 Corvette Stingrays have arrived here at Jerry’s Chevrolet. Not every Chevrolet dealer was awarded the opportunity to sell these new cars. Jerry’s Chevrolet is honored to be amongst the selected few. To celebrate their arrival we held a private viewing of the cars on the evening of Friday, October 11. We also invited the public to see the cars the following day on Saturday, October 12. For the unveiling we had not one but FOUR new Stingrays on display! The feature cars of this impressive display were: a Cyber Gray/Adrenaline Red Z51 Coupe 3LT – seven speed manual, a Blade Silver/Jet Black Z51 Coupe 2LT – paddle shift automatic, a Torch Red/Adrenaline Red Z51 Coupe 2LT – paddle shift automatic, and a Velocity Yellow/Jet Black Coupe 2LT – paddle shift automatic.

I want to thank all of the car owners for allowing us to share their cars with everyone. By now you may have seen some these owners out enjoying their new cars on the road. One of the cars you won’t see on the streets was sent to its new owner in California – Vic Edelbrock. It will be the first E-Force Supercharged Stingray in the world. It will be unveiled to everyone at this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas during the 1st week of November. Soon we will have Edelbrock E-Force Superchargers available for installation for people who believe 460 HP just isn’t enough in their new Stingray.

Jerry’s Corvette Driving Experience 2013

On Friday the 13th of August, we asked our many customers and friends to join us again for a day of fun on the race track. This year we visited Motorsport Park Hastings (MPH) in Hastings, NE. MPH is a 150 acre mecca for the car enthusiast. The heart of MPH is the 2.15 mile, 13 turn race track with 3 long straight-a-ways. The corners offer a variety of different radii and angles for a wide range of cornering speeds. The long straights are long enough for high speed thrills and passing opportunities. What started out as a dream on a napkin in a local restaurant with a few friends, became a reality in 2006 when renowned track designer Alan Wilson designed this beautiful road course. In February of 2009, Forbes.com named MPH one of the “Best Places to Speed Legally in the United States.”

Our event began on Thursday night with a special invitation from, George Anderson, the managing partner of MPH for a dinner at the Guardrail Club catered by Murphy’s Bar from downtown Hastings. The Guardrail club is a clubhouse located on the final turn of the track. After dinner, George allowed everyone to take parade laps on the track with passengers. Guests were also treated to a special tour of the Klatt Motorsports car museum.
