C7 Corvette Stingray Hidden / Cool Features

Has anyone else noticed minor features that are pretty cool.

Found this out, but there's no interior door handles, there's a button that opens the door.

See picture (Plus memory seats are on the door!)

The door buttons have been around for a while, no surprise they used it again in the c7, it's a cool feature!

I assume it will work like the c6 where you can use a key to unlock the doors via the back hatch (I think that's how it works?) and use a mechanical lever from inside the car

Like this:

That's cool, and I haven't ready anything on it, but past C5/C6 vettes didn't have key unlocks on the door so if you had to open the door there was a hidden keyhole above the rear license plate. I'm sure there's a way. Although there was a story a bit back of a guy who locked himself in a ZR1 and had to go through the trunk to the emergency handle.

Edit: see above

He could have just pulled the lever near the threshhold to get out.. lol I bet he feels pretty dumb now.

There was a guy who stole a Corvette a few years back. The battery apparently died on him and he couldn't figure out how to get out of the car.

That's why I buy manual transmission.

Story

Short version: "The Denver Post reports that a woman walked out of a Conoco gas station store at 5899 Alkire St. at about 10:10 p.m. on Tuesday night and a man with a gun approached her, aggressively demanding her purse and keys to her 2004 Audi sedan. However, after starting up the car, the thief apparently did not know how to drive stick and was unable to get the car into gear, according to 7News. So, he jumped out of the car and fled on foot."

Ive seen a similar situation on break.com. Man carjacks a pickup at gun point. Jumps In and stalls the damn thing repeatedly before giving up and fleeing on foot.

Gotta love morons...if you steal cars its best you know how to drive them.

On a side not though my dad looked at getting a ZR1 a couple of years back when they were having 0% on the new 10s that were still around and since they had the battery pulled since It had been in the showroom so long the salesman couldn't understand how to get into the car. He actually gave me the key to teach him how to take it apart and find the key hole

If you want to talk about cool features, I absolutely love how the Screen goes down and reveals a compartment. That is cool chit that I will welcome on any new car.
