Corvette Engineers Develop Auto Sunscreen

From the GM website:

WARREN, Mich. – In an effort to produce lighter, more fuel-efficient and better handling models, Chevrolet Corvette features advanced materials such as carbon fiber.

Until now, exposed-weave carbon fiber, one of the coolest looks for fast, hot cars, was unavailable to consumers because the sun degrades the material on the exterior surface.

In fact, experts thought putting exposed carbon fiber on the outside of any retail car was nearly impossible. Painting over the carbon fiber was the only option. All that has changed due to an industry-first technology breakthrough: “sunscreen” for the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.
“Everyone said it couldn’t be done, and we were crazy for trying,” said Mark Voss, senior design engineer for the ZR1.
Undaunted, Voss and his team worked for three years on their own time to develop a glossy, UV-resistant clear coat that allows exposed carbon fiber to be used on the body of the car. It also shields the carbon fiber components from chips and scratches.
“Our challenge was finding a way to give our customers exposed-weave carbon fiber with the durability they have come to expect from a Corvette,” Voss said. “Other automakers have opted for fake attempts at a carbon-fiber look. With the Corvette ZR1, we wanted to give customers the real deal.”
Carbon fiber on the Corvette emerged from the technology transfer between the production Corvette and the Corvette C6.R that race in the American Le Mans Series. Carbon fiber reduces weight and improves stiffness compared to steel. Carbon fiber is approximately one-fifth the weight of steel and one-third the mass of traditional composite panels. That means a lighter, more fuel-efficient vehicle with a lower center of gravity for better handling on the road and on the race track.
For a consumer vehicle, exposed-weave carbon fiber, with its honeycombed appearance, offers the fuel efficiency of painted carbon fiber, but has a unique aesthetic.
The ZR1 features exposed-weave carbon fiber on the roof panel, roof bow, rocker moldings, front fascia splitter, and the underside of the hood. The ZR1 has carbon fiber floor panels as well, although not in the exposed-weave format. For the Corvette Z06, carbon fiber fenders and floor panels come standard with an optional package that includes splitters, rockers and roof panels.
Voss, a former drag racer, confirmed car nut, and incessant tinkerer says his passion for all things automotive fuels his imagination. “When I’m not at work with my Chevrolet colleagues developing new technologies, I’m at home working on one of my cars in the pole barn,” he said.
Voss’ “pole barn” is just one hoist shy of being a full-blown automotive shop. The heated and furnished 1,800-square-foot outbuilding includes car tech essentials such as a metal fabrication station. He has owned more than 50 cars in his lifetime; his current classic favorites being a 1979 Corvette and 1972 Chevrolet Blazer.

2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition Article

This article, published several months ago, is from Corvette Fever magazine.  There are some good details about the 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition included:

The Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition is another example of the expanded Corvette line-up. Five years ago, customers had the choice of a Corvette coupe or convertible. With the addition of the Z06, Grand Sport coupe and convertible and ZR1, Corvette enthusiasts now have more choices than ever.

"For track use, the Z06 Carbon is the best balanced Corvette yet. It combines the lightweight and naturally-aspirated Z06 engine with the road-holding and braking of the ZR1," said Tadge Juechter, Corvette Chief Engineer. "For technical tracks like Laguna Seca, the Z06 Carbon could shave up to three seconds off the Z06 lap time."

This limited edition Z06 will boast Brembo carbon ceramic brakes with specific dark gray metallic calipers. These powerful brakes were first introduced on the ZR1. Black 20-spoke 19-inch front/20-inch rear wheels complement the car's Michelin PS2 tires. Other mechanical features include Magnetic Selective Ride Control for the first time on the Z06 and enhanced cooling. The car also features a special carbon pattern engine cover.

2011 Corvette Concept: Jake Edition

Chevrolet presented a concept Corvette at the 2010 SEMA show...the Jake Edition. 

Based on the Corvette Grand Sport coupe, the Jake Edition adds Competition Gray Z06 wheels, matte Jake hood graphic, Jake wheel caps and Jake-logo floor mats.

“Jake is more than the mascot for Corvette Racing, he personifies the Corvette spirit,” said Dave Ross, design manager. “We designed this concept to demonstrate how any enthusiast could create his own Jake special model with parts available from any Chevrolet dealership.”

Although the Jake Edition Corvette is technically labeled a concept, we fully expect most of the car’s accessories to make production.

GM Gets First Corvette Engine Build Experience Participant

Six weeks after announcing the Corvette Engine Building Experience, the first person participated in this amazing experience:

Six-weeks after announcing its Corvette Engine Build Experience, General Motors has its first taker. Todd Schnitt, a radio talk show host from Florida, has become the first person to sign up for GM’s $5,800 engine build program.

As part of the program, Schnitt will travel to GM’s Performance Build Center in Wixom, Michigan on August 30th to personally hand-build the supercharged V8 engine that will eventually be installed in his recently ordered Corvette ZR1. GM technicians will be on hand to guide Schnitt through the build process and his ZR1 will still be fully covered by GM’s factory warranty.

“To build my own engine is over the top,” said Schnitt. “When my dealer told me about the option it was like ‘Of course, I’ll do it, sign me up!’. I can’t wait to get there and build my own LS9. It will be the ultimate personalization for my car. I’m anticipating it being one of the coolest things I’ve done in my life. It definitely makes my ‘bucket-list."

Brad Paisley Tours Corvette Plant

From the Bowling Green, Kentucky Corvette plant:
Country music superstar Brad Paisley experienced a dream come true Monday when he toured the Chevrolet Corvette plant here and got to watch his very own custom-ordered ZR1 Corvette come off the assembly line.

Paisley greeted and thanked the GM workers as he walked the line learning how Corvettes are made. Once his vehicle was finished, he was given the honor of pushing the button for the first start.

“Touring the Corvette plant and actually seeing my car get the finishing touches on the assembly line was sort of surreal – like a big boy’s dream,” says Paisley. “All the employees at the plant were just great – from the new plant manager, Dave Tatman, to all the workers on the line. Thanks for a great day and making the great American sports car!”

Motor Trend Takes a First Test Drive of 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon

Motor Trend magazine took a First Test of the 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon in their August issue:

It's 2010 and GM is going with a less is more mentality for its all-new Z06 Carbon Limited Edition Corvette. You get the look, feel, sound, and most of the capabilities of the ZR1 without the six-figure price tag.

The carmaker starts out with a 505-horsepower 7.0-liter V-8 from the Z06 and adds the wheels, tires, and brakes from the ZR1. The Carbon's body kit includes black headlamp surrounds and black mirrors along with a ZR1-style body-color spoiler, a carbon-fiber raised hood, black carbon-fiber rockers, and a front splitter with a carbon-fiber roof available as well.

Despite its 133 horsepower disadvantage when compared to the ZR1, the Z06 Carbon's performance isn't far off that of its big brother, ripping to 60 in 3.7 seconds and burning the quarter mile in 11.6 seconds at 123.6 mph, compared with the ZR1's 3.3 seconds to 60 and 11.2 seconds at 130.5 mph in the quarter mile.

More Info on Mid-Engine Corvette Possibility

GM did their best to squash rumors of a possible mid-engine Corvette model:

Now, General Motors’ Karl-Friedrich Stracke, vice president of global engineering, has addressed the issue head-on, telling Automotive News just what we can’t expect to see on the next Corvette.

For starters, in regards to the possibility of a switch to the more advanced – and more costly – mid-engine setup, Stracke says, “I don’t know who made this public. I think it is wrong.”

Although Stracke’s answer isn’t exactly the most reassuring answer given its moderate level of ambiguity, additional clarification was offered by GM’s communications spokesman, Dan Flores, who said Stracke “quashed” the rumors. Flores added, “The rumors and speculation about the Corvette are just that. There is no mid-engine in the plans.” Flores also reiterated to Auto News that there are no plans for a wet dual-clutch transmission, either.

In the same sitting that GM set out to squash rumors, it appears as if they set out to create one as well. When asked about the possibility of a hybrid-powered Corvette – using similar performance enhancing approaches to Porsche – Stracke said, “That [hybrid] is an interesting idea.”

Information on Possible Mid-Engine Corvette

Left Lane News has released some information on the possible future-development of a mid-engine Corvette:

While speaking to a European trade magazine, a Saab engineer let slip that the former General Motors division was charged with developing a dual-clutch transmission for a “mid-engined version of the Corvette.” The wet-clutch transmission was being design to handle up to 590 lb-ft of torque.

It’s believed that Chevrolet had a fully engineered prototype of a mid-engine Corvette ready to be put on the production path, but the market crash of 2008 and GM’s subsequent bankruptcy but the brakes on the entire project.

Chevrolet Offers Engine Build Experience for Corvette Buyers

Chevrolet has a new program aimed at Corvette Buyers:

For enthusiasts who want to be personally involved in creating their Corvette, Chevrolet’s new Corvette Engine Build Experience allows them to literally build the engine for their new car.

In what is believed to be the world’s most hands-on super car program, customers who order a 2011 Corvette Z06 or ZR1 can choose an option to help assemble their cars’ LS7 or LS9 engines at General Motors’ Performance Build Center (PBC) in Wixom, Mich.

“Corvette owners are some of the most passionate – and most involved – enthusiasts in the industry,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet marketing. “The Corvette Engine Build Experience offers customers an unprecedented opportunity to participate, hands on, in creating the car.”

The Engine Build Experience is an option with a suggested retail price of $5,800. When a customer selects the PBC option for a 2011 Corvette Z06 or ZR1 and the dealer submits the order to Chevrolet, a special concierge contacts the customer to verify participation and help coordinate arrangements. While travel arrangements to and from Metro Detroit are the customer’s responsibility, the Chevrolet concierge helps schedule the engine build; coordinates the customer’s activities at the Performance Build Center; assists with booking local lodging and meals, and arranges local transportation.

At the PBC, the customer doesn’t merely view the engine’s assembly; he or she builds it under the supervision of and support from skilled technicians. When the engine is assembled, a personalized nameplate is added to the engine next to the builder’s name. It is then sent to the Corvette assembly plant for installation in the customer’s car.

Corvette Official State Sports Car of Kentucky

The Corvette has been officially named the State Sports Car of Kentucky:

Governor Steve Beshear performed a ceremonial signing of House Bill 104 at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant on Tuesday. He signed the official bill on April 26.

“As home to the Corvette plant in Bowling Green, Kentuckians have long considered the Corvette to be Kentucky’s sports car and a great symbol of Kentucky pride and craftsmanship,””Beshear said. “House Bill 104, which was passed during the 2010 General Assembly, now makes that designation official. It was with great pleasure that I signed HB 104 into law.”

Bowling Green is home to both the General Motors Corvette Assembly Plant (the only place in the world Chevrolet Corvettes have been manufactured since 1981) and the National Corvette Museum, a non-profit foundation with a mission of celebrating the invention of the Corvette and preserving its past, present and future since 1994.

Chevrolet Awards Galarraga a 2010 Corvette

Honoring Detroit Tigers' pitcher Armando Galarraga for his outstanding performance both on and off the baseball field, Chevrolet recently awarded him with a 2010 Corvette:

Galarraga retired 26 consecutive Cleveland Indians batters on Wednesday evening. The 27th and final batter, Jason Donald, hit a routine ball in the hole between first and second base. Tigers’ first baseman Miguel Cabrera fielded the ball and threw to Galarraga, who stepped on first base, apparently before Donald touched the base and was called safe. 

Galarraga kept his cool, returned to the mound and retired the next batter to record a one-hit, 3-0 shutout, throwing just 88 pitches.

GM North American President Mark Reuss, who presented a Chevrolet Corvette to Galarraga at today's game against the Cleveland Indians, said the way the pitcher had handled the incredible events deserved to be recognized regardless of what record books would ultimately show.

See the Corvette Z06 Trek Across Arabia

MotorTrend recently took the Corvette Z06 on a trek across Arabia.  Fun reading and some great photos:

It's quickly obvious the Z06 has dynamic prowess to match the engine's power. The balance provided by the low and rearward-mounted V-8, the transaxle and -- err -- transverse leaf spring is superb. There's precise and responsive steering, masses of grip even though the miniscule sidewalls transmit every flex of the carcass. There's outstanding brake feel and consistency. Revs sit between 3000 and 4000 rpm in third and fourth gear as the Z06 sweeps through curves at 100 mph-plus. I think I'm in love.

At the top of the climb, a windows-down blast through a tunnel turns love to lust. Accelerating in second gear from 35 mph, the noise is heroic and velocity astonishing. I'm still in second as the tunnel exit looms and the speedo tops 90.

2005 / 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Steering Column Recall Announced

Some 2005 and 2006 Chevrolet Corvettes have been recalled for a steering column issue:

General Motors is recalling about 40,000 Chevrolet Corvette sports cars because of a problem in which repeatedly adjusting the position of the steering column can cause the cars' electronic stability control activate when it shouldn't.

In some model year 2005 and 2006 Corvettes equipped with a tilting and telescoping steering wheel, repeated adjustment of the steering column position can cause the electrical connection to an electronic steering sensor to become loose.

When the problem occurs, the message "Service Active Handling System" appears in the vehicles' gauge cluster. Active Handling System is GM's name for the ESC system in the Corvette.

The problem is rare and occurs only when the steering column is adjusted repeatedly, according to GM.

The automaker will notify owners of affected vehicles so they can have their vehicles repaired. Owners can also call Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438. To repair the problem, dealers will install a clip to the sensor connector to ensure that it does not come loose.

BusinessWeek Review of 2010 Corvette Grand Sport

Bloomberg BusinessWeek recently had the opportunity to drive the 2010 Corvette Grand Sport:

My Rule No. 1 when it comes to car reviewing: Any excuse to drive a Corvette.

Following that rule put me behind the wheel of a 2010 Corvette Grand Sport just as the first days of spring arrived in hilly northeast Pennsylvania. I wasn't disappointed. Most of the time I was totally exhilarated.

The Grand Sport, a new version of the iconic two-seater Chevy sports car, splits the difference between the regular Corvette and the powerful, much more expensive Z06. Basically, the GS replaces the Z51 performance package that used to be an option on the base-model Corvette.

The GS has the same 6.2-liter, 430-hp V8 found in the regular Corvette, and is offered as either a coupe or a convertible. Either way, it includes a number of Z06-style upgrades, among them bigger brakes, a sport-tuned suspension, wider front and rear fenders, and a front splitter and tall rear spoiler, as well as fender stripes and vents and unique alloy wheels. These aren't all cosmetic enhancements. Many of them improve the car's aerodynamics and handling so that it hugs the road even more tenaciously than a regular Corvette.

2011 Corvette Z06 Auctioned at Barrett-Jackson

The first 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon Edition sold this weekend at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Florida:

The car that takes the crown, however, as the 2010 Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach collector car event's highest-selling car, is Lot No. 678, the 2011 Chevy Corvette Z06 Carbon, with a hammer price of a whopping $270,000.

The first of a limited run of 500, the Corvette Z06 Carbon is a special edition Corvette which draws from 50 years of Le Mans racing heritage to combine the superlative handling attributes of the ZR1 chassis with the lightweight LS7 Z06 engine. Thus, it is considered to be the most track-ready Corvette yet produced. Available in either Inferno Orange Metallic or Supersonic Blue, the Z06 Carbon also sports several carbon-fiber aerodynamic pieces, including a front splitter, side spoilers, and a raised hood. The winning bidder will be able to order the car personalized to their choice of color, engine, transmission, and other factory-installed equipment, as well as have the chance to travel to GM's Wixom Performance Build Center to witness the LS7 engine being built, and finally receive delivery at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY.
