RC 1:8 Scale C7 Corvette Stingray

If you want a new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette but can't quite save up enough pennies for the monthly payment, we have good news for you. Toymaker New Bright has pulled the covers off of its 1:8 scale remote-controlled version of the American sports car. Complete with a very detailed interior and LED headlights, this large-scale R/C is as close as most of us will ever come to having one of the menacing Chevrolet models to call our very own. New Bright still hasn't released pricing or availability, but word has it the coupe should hit the market soon.

Right now, it appears as if the C7 will hit shelves in Torch Red, though we don't know if other colors are planned as well. The good news is that New Bright isn't exactly turning its back on the old C6 – representatives say the company will continue to make its popular C6R racecar for those who prefer round taillights.

Sweeet! That'll fit in my garage. Oh, can I peel off that New Bright sticker?

I have one of those NB brand r/c cars... exact replica of my red Boss.

Well the C6.R RC car they make is $38 on Amazon.

Nothing about pricing for this but...yeesh. That's kinda steep.

I already paid $450 for an R/C car (Traxxas T-Maxx) so $40 for one is a steal
