Gran Turismo 6 Corvette
If you were in any doubt which is the hottest sports car in the US right now, a walk around SEMA would have set you straight: it's the C7 Corvette. There were a couple of new paint schemes on the coupe and convertible on the GM stand, but they were also joined by a real world version of the ‘Vette that has been used to a) help Chevy launch and identify the car with a younger audience and b) help launch Sony's latest Gran Turismo 6 PlayStation sim.
Other than some subtle bodywork upgrades, such as a custom grille, aero body kit and front tow hook on the outside and racing harnesses and seats plus a flat-bottomed steering wheel on the inside, it's mechanically stock. Less is sometimes more. This is one of those times.
