JUSTIN AT THE MUSEUM IN LOS ANGELES., IT IS MY PLEASURE TO TAKE YOU TO THE NEXT DESTINATION OF CORVETTE.. We WILL PLAY A 25 MINUTE FEATURE FILM, PUTTING THE WORLD ON NOTICE. AN ENTERTAINING WAY TO REVEAL TH CORVETTE Z06.. An AMERICAN MADE GLOBAL SUPER CAR THAT IS ATTAINABLE. STAY TUNED FOLLOWING THE FILM FOR DISCUSSION. ENOUGH FROM ME.. I BRING YOU THE MOMENT. You HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR., PLEASE SIT BACK AND ENJOY.. The Z06 WAS A CODE FOR A TRACK ORIENTED PERFORMANCE ON THE 63 CORVETTE.. The ONLY WAY YOU WOULD KNOW TO ORDER WAS PEOPLE WHISPERING IN PEOPLES EARS.. If YOU WANT TO GO RACING, YOU WANT THE Z06 OPTION AND YOU WILL GET SPECIALTY HARDWARE. IT WASNT. Until THE FIFTH GENERATION WE BROUGHT IT BACK., IT HAS BECOME A BRAND UNTO ITSELF.. You WANT IT TO GO FASTER, STOP FASTER. Basically, THE MESH TRACK ORIENTED CORVETTE THAT WE DO. THROUGH THE FIFTH SIXTH, SEVENTH AND NOW EIGHTH, WE HAVE MOVED THE STREETCAR CLOSER AND CLOSER.. The DEVELOPMENT ON THE VEHICLE AND ENGINE SIDE ARE TIED TOGETHER AT THE HIP.. Its A WAY TO PUT THE BEST OF THE CORVETTE TOGETHER AND EXPAND BANDWIDTH.. The ARCHITECTURE ALLOWS US TO DO THAT EVEN MORE.. In MY QUEST FOR PERFORMANCE. TE Z06 WAS THE CAR. A RACECAR FOR THE STREET. IT WILL PERFORM WITH THE BEST OF THE BEST WORLDWIDE.. The FIRST TIME I EXPERIENCED A CRAVAT ON THE ROAD THAT ACTUALLY RUDE AND FELT LIKE A RACECAR., THE PROCESSION.

TO ME THAT WAS EVERYTHING.. This ELEVATES THE CORVETTE.. It KEEPS YOU LOCKED IN., WE ARE HAVING A CONVERSATION RIGHT NOW.. I AM STILL FOCUSED. THE OTHER PEOPLE. We ARE COMPETING AGAINST IN A PRICE RANGE. Unique TO THEMSELVES ARE GOING TO LOOK BACK AT THIS.. It CHANGES HOW THEY OPERATE. THE HEART OF THE Z06 IS THE ENGINE.. We HAD MID ARCHITECTURE., WE NEEDED POWER.. There WAS AN NICHE FOLLOWING THAT PINED FOR THE IMMEDIATE RESPONSE.. The LIGHTWEIGHT VISCERAL FEEL OF A NATURALLY ASPIRATED ENGINE THAT WOULD EXCEED THE WORST POWER OF THE PRIOR GENERATION SUPERCHARGED Z06.. What KINDS OF POWER TRAIN WOULD WE NEED? The ONLY WAY TO ACHIEVE THAT IS TO DO THE HIGHEST HORSEPOWER, NATURALLY DONE THE 8 IN HISTORY. THATS. What HAD TO HAPPEN. THIS IS COOL.. I HAVE TO LOOK AT THE ENGINE.. This IS THE MAG RIDE.. Can I START IT? The ENGINE IS PLAYING IN THE EXOTIC SPACE.. We HAD OUR HANDS UNTIED TO BUY THE BEST TITANIUM RODS TO GO TO THE TRUE MECHANICAL VALVE. Train., IT IS A LOW VOLUME, INBUILT PRECISION, ENGINE. THE BIG ADVANTAGES OF MOVING TO A FLAT PLAIN CRANK., THE MASS AND THE ENGINE MOVING THE FASTEST IS MUCH LIGHTER. IN DOING THAT. Allows THE ENGINE TO ACCELERATE WITH SPEEDS MUCH MORE RAPIDLY THAN ANY SMALL BLOCK BEFORE IT.. Also MORE THAN THE HORSEPOWER. WE LOOKED AT HOW TO GET THE ENGINE WE WANTED TO HAVE, WHICH WAS A FLAT PLAIN, CRANK. THATS. What WE WANTED TO DO.

JUST TO SEE THE RPM.. I THINK IT IS 8600. MR. USED TO SHIFTING A V8 COST 6600 AT THE HIGHEST. FROM 7000 UP TO 9000 WAS A WHOLE DIFFERENT RANGE THAT NOT MANY EXPERIENCE.. Even WHEN YOURE UP IN THE HIGHER RANGES. YOU COULD TELL., YOU COULD FEEL IT ROLLING.. It KEEPS PULLING. ALL THE WAY TO THE REDLINE.. You FEEL POWER BUILDING.. It IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT.. The SPEED ENABLES THE ENGINE TO PUMP AIR PROCESS FUEL AND PRODUCE POWER., ANOTHER PART. GENERATIONS OF LEARNING HOW TO BALANCE REQUIREMENTS TO MAKE A CAR FAST AND COMFORTABLE. On THE TRACK. COMFORTABLE AS AN EVERY DAY, DRIVER., THE MANUFACTURING CHALLENGES ARE RACECAR TYPE.. That REQUIRES A SKILLED OPERATOR AND CUSTOM SHIMS TO MAKE THE RESULTING ENGINE FIT. NO GAPS.. It RUNS TWO 8600 RPM., THE QUICKEST. THE ONLY WAY EXTREMELYPRECISE MANUFACTURING.. Here WE GO.. We ARE USED TO CORVETTES THUNDERS FROM THE SKY.. My DAD HAS A 62 CORVETTE.. Every TIME I HEAR IT. It IS WONDERFUL. OVER THE COURSE OF 70 YEARS. You KNOW WHAT YOU WILL GET. A VISCERAL V8 COST SMALL BLOCK. Experience. WE DONT WANT TO LOSE THAT.. We HAVE A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ENGINE.. We WANTED TO KEEP THE CORVETTE SOUND, BUT LET YOU KNOW YOU ARE IN THE FLAT PLAIN CRANK. ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS THE CAR SOUNDS GREAT OUTSIDE, BUT I CAN HEAR INSIDE., IT IS THERE, BUT WE CANT HEAR IT IN THE CABIN.. You HAVE TO BE ABLE TO HEAR THAT.

, THERE ARE IMPROVEMENTS TO BE HAD.. This IS A NEW CHAPTER.. We NEEDED TO MOVE THE NEEDLE.. It REQUIRED US TO RETHINK THE EXHAUST.. We ENDED UP TEARING UP A BUNCH OF THE BACK OF THE CAR. RE ARCHITECTING, THE EXHAUST. DECOUPLING, THE TIP FROM THE END OF THE PIPE.. We SHAPE THE TIPS LIKE A REVERSE MEGAPHONE. WHEN THE SOUND COMES OUT THAT ACTUALLY REFLECTS PARABOLIC SERVICES.. It PROJECTS SOUND FORWARD TO THE DRIVERS HERE. I HUGE CHALLENGE. WE WANTED. The COMBINATION OF IT SOUNDS GREAT ON THE OUTSIDE AND INSIDE.. We WANTED IT TO BE REAL.. A BIG PART OF THE RIDE IS TO CONFIRM THE SOUND QUALITY AND SOUND PRESENCE. EVERYTHING WE HAVE BEEN STRIVING. For.. We HAVE ENGINEERING TOOLS. FOR THIS TYPE OF THING. There IS A CHEST CAVITY PUMPING.. It HITS YOU LIKE A BRICK WALL. WHEN YOU GET INTO THE CAR OR STAND OUTSIDE, AND YOU HEAR IT AND IT GIVES YOU GOOSEBUMPS. THATS WHEN YOU KNOW. THIS CARD DID THAT.. It GIVES ME GOOSEBUMPS EVERY TIME.. I THINK THIS IS THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF BLENDING CLINICAL PERFECTION AND THE RAWNESS OF THE FLAT PLAIN CRANK. HEARING MECHANICALS WORK.. It IS MUSIC AFTER SO MANY YEARS. THAT WAS PRETTY AWESOME.. I HAVE A BACKGROUND IN FOOTWEAR, DESIGN BEFORE I CAME TO GM. YOU DESIGNED AROUND TENAFLY.. Everything HERE IS DESIGNED AROUND THE MOMENT.. We RESPECT THE PAST.. We ARE ALWAYS MOVING FORWARD.. We TRY TO CAUSE THE DESIGN TO LOOK BETTER IN THE WAY THE CAR WORKS.

Better.. This NEW Z06 HAS BASICALLY STARTED WITH A CLEAN SHEET.. I ADMIRE THAT.. They HAVE TAKEN THE MOST ADVANCED DESIGN AND UPDATED IT. Each TIME. IT IS SO ADVANCED AND EDGY AND BEAUTIFUL. ITS A CAREFUL BALANCE OF BEAUTIFUL SCULPTURE AND SYMMETRIX.. We TRY TO MAKE THEM TRANSPARENT TO THE DESIGN.. We ARE CHANGING EVERYTHING BUT DOORS ROOF HATCH.. It TYPICALLY STARTS AT THE ROW. WHEELS, TIRING, LARGER BRAKES., MORE TRACTION, BETTER, STOPPING AND CORNERING POWER., FENDERS AND QUARTERS.. All AERODYNAMICS IS DIFFERENT.. A BIG PART OF THE Z06 MISSION IS IN ITS CHASSIS.. The ARCHITECTURE WAS DESIGNED TO PUT POWER TO THE GROUND. Like NO Z06 BEFORE. 20 INCH DIAMETER WHEELS IN THE FRONT. FOR THE FIRST TIME, 21 INCH DIAMETER WHEELS IN THE REAR.. We WANT TO MAKE SURE WE TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF THE WEIGHT ON THE BACKEND. POWERING TO MAXIMIZE TRACTION.. We WIDENED THE TIGERS. BODY, WORK THAT FEEDS INTO THE ENGINE TO BREATHE AND BE COOL.. We STARTED PUTTING WIDER F, WE SAID WE HAVE SOMETHING HERE. LIKE PRIOR GENERATIONS.. We HAVE AN AVAILABLE SEVEN PACKAGE. ITS FOR THE TRULY COMMITTED TRACK. Person., YOU CHECK THE BOX FOR THE 7 CERAMIC BRAKES, WING. A WHEEL, UNSPRUNG MASS OF OVER 40 POUNDS.. They ARE NATURAL.. You WANT THE SUSPENSION TO REACT. Instantly., THE LIGHTER THE TIRE WHEEL ASSEMBLY IS THE THICKER. It CAN DO IT. WITH THE OPTIONAL WE HAVE SEEN AT TIME OF 2.6 SECONDS.. We WANTED TO TALK ABOUT HOW WE CAN MAKE IT A PERFORMANCE DRIVEN EXTERIOR.

. How DO WE TAKE THE INTERIOR UP. WHEN YOU GET INTO MANUFACTURING? It BECOMES STIFF. THERES, NOT A LOT OF NOTION.. How DO YOU BRING THAT HUMAN TOUCH. CARBON FIRE IS BEAUTIFUL. AND MAN MADE MATERIAL STRONG. LIGHT WEIGHT, GIVING YOU A PERFORMANCE FEELING.? We BRING ART INTO IT., HITTING IT WITH A LEATHER PIECE.. It WAS LIKE BUILDING A SMALL SCULPTURE.. It BLENDS THE TWO WORLDS OF ART, SCIENCE AND CRAFT.. You BOUGHT MORE THAN SOMETHING EXHILARATING.. If YOU TAKE THE COLOR. SEATBELTS, YOU COULD BUILD 11000 COMBINATIONS.. You COULD BUILD WHAT YOU WANT AND MAKE IT SPEAK TO YOU. HAVING SOMETHING THAT BRINGS THE THRILL OF DRIVING TO EVERYONE IN A UNIQUE WAY IS THE FOCUS OF THE NEW CORVETTE.. Oh MY GOODNESS.. This IS SOMETHIG RIGHT, HERE. BEAUTIFUL. 1975.. My GRANDFATHER USED TO WORK ON IT EVERY DAY.. Every TIME I WOULD GO TO HIS HOUSE, HE WOULD BE IN THE BACK.. That WAS MY INTRODUCTION TO CARS.. My DAD IS A COLLECTOR., ITS PART OF MY FAMILY. LEARNING PROCESS, EVERY DAY. ANY CONVERSATION ON LEARNING SOMETHING NEW.. The WAY WE LOOKED AT IT., IT HAS TO LOOK LIKE ITS MOVING FAST WHEN ITS SITTING STILL. ITS KEEPING YOU IN THE SIGHT LINE. SEE MECCA, KEEPS YOU LOCKED IN.. I LIKE THAT.. The WHOLE GOAL IS TO CAPTURE THE THRILL.. It SHOULD BE AN EXPERIENCE.. Take A DEEP BREATH.: YOUR HEART IS PUMPING A LITTLE BIT.. You CANT, GET IT TO MANY PLACES IN MY LIFE.. Is THAT SIMILAR WHEN YOURE ON THE COURT.

? I CHASE THAT FEELING. MY FIRST FEW YEARS, YOU READ THE LIST.. This PERSON IS BETTER., THEY SAY THE SAME ABOUT CARS.. I FINALLY GOT TO A POINT WHERE I AM COMPETING WITH MYSELF. IVE SEEN MY CAREER IN PERFORMANCE TAKE STRIDES IN HEADSPACE ALONE.. How DO YOU BUILD UPON YOURSELF TO MAKE YOURSELF BETTER. NEARING 70 YEARS.? You HAVE THE FEELING OF WHO YOU ARE WHAT YOUR BRAND IS. IT GIVES YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHALLENGE AND MAKE IT YOUR OWN., AS YOU ARE DOING, THAT YOU LOOK BACKWARDS TO MAKE SURE YOURE, MAKING THE RIGHT DECISION. COMING FROM THE HISTORY OF BOOKER BLOOD THAT PLAYED Basketball, STARTING WITH MY GRANDFATHER., MOVING DOWN A GENERATION TO MY FATHER. NOW MAY. WAN NA, TAKE IT TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL.. It KEPT ME GOING.. I WOULD DEFINITELY TAKE THIS TO A TRACK AND A NICE DINNER. IF I WANT TO MAKE REAL NOISE. This IS WHAT IM GOING TO BEGIN. IS THE ULTIMATE TEST.. You GET EVERY SORT OF TURN. EVERY HIGH SPEED, LOW SPEED, HIGH GRIP, LOW GRIP., A LONG FLOWING RACETRACK WITH MANY CHALLENGES.. You REALLY ARE PUSHING ANY CAR TO THE LIMIT., EVERY SORT OF LEWD. You COULD EXPERIENCE ANYWHERE ELSE., YOU GET IT HERE ON ONE RACETRACK., ITS THE BENCHMARK FOR THE WORLD.. So MUCH OF THE PERFORMANCE STARTED ON THE RACETRACK. THATS, WHERE THINGS ARE TRIED., THEY ARE STRETCHING.. They BRING TECHNOLOGY TO THE ROAD.. When YOU THINK OF A CAR, YOU THINK SPEED. WITHOUT THAT.

, YOU ARE NOWHERE.. This CAR GOES SO FAST, SO EASILY. THE ABILITY TO HANDLE. ON THIS TRACK. It IS UNHEARD OF., FUNDAMENTALLY A RACECAR. You CAN DRIVE ON THE ROAD. THE ABILITY TO GO CORNERS. TO PUT THE TRACTION DOWN.. The FEELINGS FOR A RACECAR IS RIGHT HERE IN THE Z06 PIC GENERAL MOTORS RECOGNIZE. This IS AN INCREDIBLE PLACE TO DEVELOP. AND TO COMPETE WITH EUROPEANS.. If WE WANT THEM TO BE ON THE WORLD STAGE, WE HAVE TO BEGIN SELLING CARS WITH RIGHT HAND DRIVE.. We HAVE TO DO IT FOR THE CORVETTE FOR THE FUTURE.. It IS UNEQUIVOCALLY A SUPERCAR.. It WILL REWARD CUSTOMERS THAT EXPLORE LIMITS.. There IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE CONNECTION WHEN YOU DRIVE SOMETHING WITH PERFORMANCE. Capability. EUROPEAN COMPETITORS HAVE TO BE NERVOUS.. You HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD.. I HAVE BEEN PROUD THAT IT IS AN EFFORT. I COULD NOT HAVE GUESSED.. The NEW BRINGS THE TRACK EXPERIENCE TO EVERY DAY ENTHUSIASTS.. If I LOOK AT 10 YEAR OLD MAY AND SAY WE WILL BUILD AN EXOTIC ENGINE AND HAVE THE BEST TIRES AND BIGGEST BRAKES. We EVER PUT ON A CORVETTE. AERODYNAMICS BETTER THAN ANYTHING.. You CAN BE PART OF THAT., IT IS BUT FILLING EVERY DREAM. As A YOUNG KID., I REPRESENT ONE OF HUNDREDS THAT PUT BLOOD AND SWEAT IN THE ENGINE.. It OPENS THE DOORS OF WHAT WE CAN DO. ITS LIKE GOING TO THE MOON.. It IS A PRODUCT OF VISION., ITS NEVER DONE.. Z06 IS THE NEXT CHAPTER IN A VERY LONG BOOK.

. I AM SPEECHLESS., IT IS POWER LIKE WE HAVE NEVER SEEN., OBVIOUSLY FAST BEAUTIFUL.. It MAY BE REMEMBER WHY I WANTED TO GRAB A STEERING WHEEL AND DRIVE FAST.. I DONT KNOW WHAT ELSE TO SAY. I AM JOINED BY A PANEL, NOT SO SPEECHLESS.. We WILL HAVE A GREAT CONVERSATION ABOUT THE FILM AND THE STAR, THE CORVETTE Z06.. Let ME INTRODUCE YOU, WE HAVE CORVETTE EXECUTIVE CHIEF ENGINEER.. We HAVE ASSISTED CHIEF ENGINEER OF SMALL BLOCK ENGINES. JOINING US IS EMILIA HARFORD, A RECORD BREAKING PERFORMANCE BUILDER AND DRIVER.. The FILM DIRECTOR ANDREW SCHNEIDER, RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FILM., MY FRIEND RETIRED, CORVETTE RACER A FIVE TIME WINNER, AS WELL AS A MULTIPLE CHAMPION, OLIVER.. Well DONE.. It WAS A WONDERFUL FILM. LETS GET STARTED.. The CORVETTE IS A WAY OF LIFE.. How DOES IT FEEL AFTER ALL THIS TIME? I KNOW IT IS A PROGRESSION TO GET THE CAR TO MARKET.. What IS IT LIKE TO LIFT THE CURTAIN? It IS EXCITING.. We HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THIS ACTUALLY FOR SIX YEARS.. When WE INTRODUCE THE STINGRAY, WE WERE SUPER EXCITED.. In THE BACK OF OUR MIND, WE KNEW WHAT WAS COMING.. The Z06 WAS COMING.. We COULD NOT SAY ANYTHING THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE DEVELOPMENT. For US, WE HAD TO BE SILENT AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, A BURST OF ENERGY. BEING ABLE TO SHARE EVERYTHING AT ONCE.. It IS SO EXHILARATING. ALMOST AS IF WRITING AS THE CAR., THE ENGINEERING AND THE CORPORATE SIDE., THE EVOLUTION.. You HAVE ACTUALLY DRIVEN IT.

YOU AND I WATCHING. ANDREW THAT WAS YOUR JOB., SO MANY MOMENTS IN THE FILM I WAS LIKE: HOW DID THEY DO THAT. MY FAVORITE, THE CONVERGENCE OF THE CAMERA FLYING IN A DRONE. MEETING THE Z06 ON THE ROAD. IT MADE ME FEEL Thats, WHAT IM TRYING TO DO. LOOKING AT IT, AND THEN I WANT TO BE IN THE CAR. THANK YOU.. We USED A DRONE., WE FLEW IT OVER THE WATER AND INTO THE ROAD AND LINED IT UP WITH THE REAR OF THE CAR.. It TOOK. Quite A FEW TRIES TO GET THE TIMING.. It WAS RAINING THAT DAY. WE WERE THANKFUL TO HAVE THE DRONE IN THE SKY FLY IT. AS SOON AS IT LANDED IT STARTED. Pouring. WAS MEANT TO BE. HOLLYWOOD. DUSTIN, SOMEBODY SO INVOLVED WITH ENGINES., EVEN AS A DRIVER. HORSEPOWER.. What IS WORSE POWER? It IS ABOUT THE POWER. THATS WHATS FUELING IT.. Last THURSDAY WE FINISHED THE TESTING FOR THE PROCEDURE.. We GET IT LINED UP WITH THE DATA. THE WORK AT THE END TO MAKE SURE WE LEFT NOTHING AT THE TABLE.. We GOT THE ENGINE UP TO 670 HORSEPOWER. TO PUT THAT IN PERSPECTIVE.. The CURRENT OUTPUT IS 620 SOMETHING.. We TAKE THAT BY HEFTY MARGIN. WHEN YOU THINK ALMOST DOUBLE THE FIRST EVER Z06.. It SHOWS HOW INCREDIBLE TIME AND TECHNOLOGY IS. EMILIA HARFORD. I KNOW YOU LOVE HORSEPOWER.. You HELD RECORDS FOR THE HIGHEST WORSE POWER CORVETTE EVER BUILT.. What WAS IT LIKE FOR YOU? When YOU GOT TO RIDE IN IT.

? We SAW ON THE VIDEO, THE WORSE POWER, KICKING BACK.. You ARE EXCITED., IT WAS EXCITING FOR A PRODUCTION MODEL.. I FAMILIAR MYSELF WITH THE SPACE.. My CRAVAT IS 1200.. It IS HARD TO GET EXCITED WITH STOCK VEHICLES.. When I WAS IN THE PASSENGER SEAT, IT WAS AN EXPERIENCE HARD TO PUT INTO WORDS. YOU WAITING AT 6002 SHIFTS.. I WAS EXPECTING IT TO SHIFT THAT 65 AND IT WASNT. THERE WASNT A DROP OF HORSEPOWER.. You COULD SEE ME GETTING THROWN IN THE SEAT., IT HAD SO MUCH TORQUE AND IT KEPT GOING. FANTASTIC PIC. The ENTHUSIASM CAME ACROSS.. What WAS IT WITH YOU THAT RESONATES., WHEN I GOT IN THE CAR FOR THE FIRST TIME. I GOT IN AND PUT IT IN TRACK? Mood. I DROVE IT.. It HAD ALL FEELINGS OF A RACECAR. TO ME ITS AN AMAZING MACHINE THAT CAN NOT ONLY BE A DAILY DRIVER.. You CAN DRIVE IT. WHEN YOU SWITCH THE MODE. The CAR COMES ALIVE IN YOUR IN A RACECAR.. Its AMAZING PIC THAT DISTINCTION BETWEEN ROAD AND TRACK IS LESS THAN EVER.. The GAP BETWEEN THE ROAD, CAR AND RACECAR IS GETTING SMALLER.. Here WE HAVE THE EIGHTH GENERATION. MID ENGINE Z06.. It HAS ALL OF THAT RACECAR FEEL TO ME.. The LIGHTS ARE ON.. It IS FANTASTIC TO EXPERIENCE THAT.. I IMAGINE THIS IS PART OF THE EXCITEMENT FOR YOU.. When YOU HEAR EMILIA HARFORD AND ALI TALK ABOUT CARS. DUSTIN, THE ENGINE CREATING IT., THE FINAL HORSEPOWER NUMBERS., IT STILL MUST BE GRATIFYING TO KNOW THAT THEY SAY ITS THE REAL DEAL.

, ITS EXTREMELY REWARDING FOR MYSELF IN THE EXTENDED TEAM., THE 6 ITS HARD TO PUT INTO Words, EMOTION: YOU ARE TRYING TO COMMUNICATE. EMILIA HARFORD. Your REACTION SUMS IT UP., YOU CANT VERBALIZE. ITS AN EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCE. MENTALLY. When YOU SEE IT GO PAST 6600.. The 6 WANTS TO DO THAT WITH GREAT AUTHORITY.. If LIES PASS 6000. THE MENTAL SIDE. GETTING USED TO THE ENGINE. EXHILARATION OF SOUND., THE INITIAL SHIFTS., WHEN YOU GOT IT IN FIRST GEAR AND STAND ON THE GAS., YOU HAVE TO BE ON IT TO GET INTO SECOND GEAR. THATS, HOW QUICKLY IT ACCELERATES. IT REVS UP.. It POST 8600., I WAS GOING TO SPEAK TO THAT. ARRIVING AS HIGH AS IT DOES IS. One THING. QUICKLY IS ANOTHER. ITS NOT LIKE A SLOW PROGRESSION FROM 6600 UP TO 8600.. It GOES FAST. QUICKLY., A TESTAMENT.. The TORQUE PEAK IS WHERE YOU WOULD SHIFT. IT PULLS HARD.. You CAN FEEL EVERYBODYS ENTHUSIASM. ANDREW, HOW DIFFICULT TO CAPTURE PEOPLES REACTIONS., EMILIA HARFORDS REACTION WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITES.. We KEPT HER AWAY AND OUT OF THE CARS LINE OF SIGHT., THE CAR WAS COVERED.. We WANTED TO KEEP IT GENUINE.. Your ENTHUSIASM FOR THE CORVETTE HAS BEEN THERE.. What WAS IT HOW I FOUND MY PASSION.? It STARTED WITH A SMALL BLOCK. FROM THERE. I HAVE DONE DIFFERENT ONES. DIFFERENT NEUTERS.. I SWAPPED. AT THE TIME WHEN IT WAS ANNOUNCED. THE STINGRAY.. I WAS LOOKING FOR MY NEXT PROJECT., SOMETHING TO CHALLENGE ME., JUST SAYING WHAT EVERYTHING WAS GOING FOR AND WHAT YOU GET IN RETURN.

. I DIDNT FEEL THERE WERE A LOT OF OPTIONS.. I DECIDED I WAS GOING TO TAKE A STEP INTO MORE OF THE SUPERCAR WORLD. AFTER I MADE THE DECISION. A WEEK LATER, YOU ANNOUNCED THE STINGRAY.. I THOUGHT IT WAS UNBEATABLE. THE PRICE, THE POWER CAPABILITIES.. I SOUGHT AS THE PERFECT CHALLENGE. SHES THE FIRST TO REALIZE. The BASIC CHASSIS CAN HANDLE A LOT MORE POWER.. Arguably THE TOUGHEST CROWD WILL BE IN EUROPE.. The RECEPTION OF THE STINGRAY WAS FANTASTIC.. The Z06 WILL BUILD ON THAT. ITS BEEN REMARKABLE.. When YOU SEE HOW THE UK HAS ACCEPTED THE CAR. THROUGHOUT EUROPE, THE BUZZES THEY ARE. ORDERS ARE PULLING IN., WE CANT KEEP UP WITH THE DEMAND. WITH THE Z06 COMING AND WE WILL BUILD. THE PERFORMANCE NUMBERS. Everybody WILL BE SO EXCITED TO SEE THE CAR.. It WILL BE SO MUCH FUN. THE DRIVER EXPERIENCE. SOMEBODY WHO IS A BIT OF A RINGER.. What WAS YOUR GOAL FOR THE DRIVER? Experience., IT IS NOT ONE SIZE FITS ALL. NO., EVEN THOUGH NUMBERS ARE PHENOMENAL. ITS, NOT A NUMBERS CAR.. We TALK SENSORY PERCEPTION OF WHAT ITS LIKE TO BE IN THE CAR AND DRIVE IT., MAKING THE PERFORMANCE ACCESSIBLE. NOT PINNACLE SUPERFAST.. Do YOU GET THERE? How DOES IT FEEL WE LEARNED FROM THE RACING PROGRAM. ALL GENERATIONS.? We SEE A TRANSFERRED INTO THIS Z06. AND THE PERFORMANCE YOU CAN FEEL THE EXCITEMENT FROM PEOPLE WHO DRIVE IT AND PEOPLE WHO WILL MESS WITH THAT.. You CAN FILL TO BUILD UP.

, SOMETHING ELSE. The SOUND MAKES.. The WAY YOUR AUDIO GUYS DID THAT COMBINING WITH THE SOUND OF THE ENGINE AND RUNNING UP THE CAR WITH MUSIC. IM GLAD YOU CAUGHT THAT. SOMETHING EARLY ON WITH THE DEVELOPMENT.. We WERE GOING TO TAKE THE AUDIO, SOUND AND BLEND IT.. If YOU LISTEN CLOSELY, YOU WILL NOTICE THAT WE WILL BLEND AUDIO NOTES WITH THE SOUNDTRACK. FOR SURE. ITS ABOUT SPATIAL AUDIO AND THROWING IT TO DIFFERENT PLACES.. A HUGE TALKING, POINT. CAPTURING WAS ONE THING.. What WAS THAT, LIKE? I WASNT SUPPOSED TO BE THERE. FIVE HOURS EARLY.. I HEARD THERE WOULD BE AUDIO TESTING.. I HAD TO BE THERE. HEARING AND SEEING THE Z06 FOR THE FIRST TIME.. It WAS EMOTIONAL.. Two YEARS AGO I WAS A CUSTOMER BUYING A STINGRAY FOR THE FIRST TIME.. I DONT THINK CHEVROLET EXPECT IT.. I DIDNT.. I HAD VIDEO FOOTAGE SAYING I WOULD LEAVE IT AND NOT TOUCH IT., JUST TO SAY IN THE PAST TWO YEARS OF BUYING THE CAR., A CUSTOMER BEING ABLE TO SIT HERE WITH EVERYONE. ON THE FILM AND PART OF THE LAUNCH, ITS INCREDIBLE. A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE Contours., FORCING BACK AND REVERBERATING. THE FIRST FLOOR CORVETTE. WE KNEW IT WAS CAPABLE OF PROVIDING AN EXPERIENCE. Unlike ANY OTHER., IT ENDED UP RE ARCHITECTING, THE EXHAUST SYSTEM., THE LOWER END.. We PUT REVERSE MEGAPHONES MOUNTED TO THE SAMPLE STATIONS AS THEY COME OUT AND REFLECT OFF THE SURFACE.. If YOU DONT LOOK, IT LOOKS LIKE A REGULAR EXHAUST.

, A TON OF SCIENCE.. We TALKED ABOUT BEING HERE IN AMERICA., A GLOBAL CAR.. You GET TO DRIVE ALL SORTS OF THINGS.. How DO YOU THINK IT WILL GET COMPARED AROUND THE WORLD? I THINK IT WILL BE AN AMAZING MOMENT FOR CORVETTE.. It IS A GLOBAL SUPERCAR, COMING OUT. BEING LAUNCHED TODAY. ANYONE CAN BUY THE CAR. AND TAKE IT TO A RACETRACK., AN EXPERIENCE IT JUST LIKE. I WILL.. I THINK IT IS SO. Special PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE TO EXPERIENCE THE RACECAR TECHNOLOGY RIGHT HERE. EVERY ONCE IT CAUGHT. Everyones ENTHUSIASM IS AMAZING. FINAL THOUGHTS.. The ENTHUSIASM IS GENUINE.. You CAN SEE PASSION. WE IN THE FILM AND HERE TODAY ARE THE TIP OF AN ICEBERG.. There ARE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE., WHETHER ENGINES. THE WHOLE REST OF THE CAR. HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE. GENERAL MOTORS. SUPPLIERS WHO SHARE THE PASSION. ITS. What MAKES THE CAR WHAT IT IS. ITS A WONDERFUL MACHINE.. We SPENT TIME TRYING TO ARTICULATE WHAT IT IS AND HOW IT DRIVES. THE BEST WAY IS THROUGH THE KEYS AND WALK AWAY.. The CAR TALKS FOR ITSELF. TRULY AMAZING TO BE WITH YOU. YOUR BRILLIANCE, ENTHUSIASM, PASSION., YOUR ABILITY TO CAPTURE IT. YOUR ABILITY TO DRIVE IT.. I CANT WAIT TO GET BEHIND THE WHEEL.. Thank YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US.. I HOPE YOU HAD AS MUCH FUN AS I DID.. If YOURE LIKE ME, IM SURE YOU WOULD LIKE TO WATCH THE FILM AGAIN., ESPECIALLY THE INSIGHT FROM OUR GUESTS., THE GOOD NEWS.. It WILL CONTINUE TO BE AVAILABLE TO YOU.

TO THE BASEBALL FANS, KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED FOR AN APPEARANCE TONIGHT, AS YOU WATCH GAME 1. FROM ALL OF US HERE AT CORVETTE.. Thank YOU FOR JOINING US..
