2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Video Animation

  Trinity Animation has created a simulation video of what the proposed all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette might look like on the street driving.

The Chevrolet Corvette has been an American icon for almost 60 years. This is the only video animation of the seventh-generation Corvette. Some may love it, others may hate it. One thing is for sure no other domestic sports car has the same following as the Corvette. GM designers have a lot to consider before releasing any all-new redesign.

‘Smart Car’ police chase caught on video

  Not sure if this is a first, however, the driver of a Smart Car was involved in a police chase.

While you cannot classify this as a high speed police chase; it does rank high on the ‘what was he thinking’ meter.
