C7 Corvette Stingrays in the wild! Laguna Blue, Black, and Torch Red [Pics+Video]

Three C7 mules together in Arizona, as spotted by our member Vette_85.

The black Stingray was a Z51 with 7 speed manual. The blue and red ones were base models.

This is what Vette_85 was able to gather from the engineers:
Quote:
More or less that they were test driving to find any kinks they may need to address. I asked him how the Direct Injection feels and the taller GENTLEMEN coming out of the BLUE one said "the torque and control is unbelievable, so fun to drive". Telling me that the black one was indeed a z51 w/the 7spd. The others base model. And of course that there getting stopped everywhere for pictures ha. Very cool guys though. Taller one was the most talkative. Other 2 seemed a little quieter, and i dont want to say "annoyed", but not as willing to talk about the car. So i didnt want to be a bother and let them have there lunch. I snapped a few more photos and had to get back to the shop for work I wish my lady would have gotten more of a walk around in the video, but the camera was dying. She liked the car on tv, and now LOVES the car seeing it now in person.

That Torch Red needs to be in my life.

And Corvette engineers suck at parking.

Those look sick. Love the black on black. But what's with the lights? Are they shorting or is that just the video?

That's just how lights appear sometimes on video camera.

The driver getting out of the Blue Corvette Stingray is Jim Mero. I didn't recognize the other engineers.

Awesome! Those things are unreal.

Off topic a bit but the video proves that nobody should try to cover a Dio tune. That was an epic fail.

Awesome!
I love their reaction. lol

Yeah, the lights flickering has to do with what's called raster scan I believe.
Refresh rate of the camera versus the refresh rate of the LED tail lights.
Similar to when you see another TV or Computer screen on film.

I am so glad you all enjoy this video. I cant believe its getting around so fast. I took this video yesterday on ELLSWORTH AND UNIVERSITY, we all turn into PAPA KELSEY'S where they had lunch. Lights flickering, of course is due to the LED's and the way my ladies camera picks them up. I apologize for the music, but I was pretty hysterical and cussing during,the video. So I wanted to cover it up. Again, thank you for the positive feedback.

i don't know, they are up here, not in Yuma. There was a red one the other day parked right in front of the Ellsworth sign. The pictures of the black and blue one on the freeway the other day were on the 101 out here on the other side of phoenix that i live in.
but then this one and the two sightings of red ones are all out in mesa and tempe. i wonder where they are storing them. i can't believe they are driving them up from Yuma every day, and then driving right around that area.
