Chevrolet has begun delivering units of the seventh-generation Corvette to its dealership network in the US, and these photos show us how it's done. These units were manufactured at GM's facility in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where the Corvette has been built since June 1981.
The assembly plant--which underwent a $131-million renovation to keep up with the manufacturing requirements of the new Corvette model--has now reportedly put together 1,000 units for customer deliveries. Let's just say a thousand American dudes are going to have a very merry Christmas this year. Included in the facility overhaul is a $52-million body shop dedicated to the new Corvette's aluminum frame.
"It's an amazing sight to see the transporters filled with Stingrays heading to customers in all corners of the country," said GM Bowling Green plant manager Dave Tatman. "The pride at our plant is overwhelming, and it shows in the tremendous quality and attention to detail going into each one of these new Corvettes."
