Default Project b1adeZmobile 2.0 - 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray Z51

After 5 long years of driving the Z, I thought it was about time to upgrade. I wanted something that had similar characteristics to the Z - small, lightweight, great handling, and some power to go along with it. I fell in love with the C7 when it was first revealed and even more so once I finally sat in one at the DC Auto Show a couple years back. When I got a chance to test drive one this past summer I just knew it was the perfect car for me. It's got looks (both exterior and interior), performance (both power and handling), reliability, and quality.

So the one I ended up buying is a 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 2LT in Laguna Blue. It has the 7MT, which is the first MT I have ever owned. It has the Magnetic Selective Ride Control (MSRC), NPP exhaust, Competition racing seats, CF interior, and CF roof options equipped. Haven't had it long enough to do a true comparison with the Z yet, but so far it seems like a huge upgrade in every aspect. Only advantage the Z has is with interior space. Definitely a tighter interior on the C7. I am planning on bringing it to ZDayZ this year, so I can probably give a much better comparison after that.
