DETROIT — General Motors confirmed for Edmunds that a halftime hook-up with the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and Beyonce almost happened.

GM said it was approached by the producers of the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show about the possibility of integrating a car into the show production.

"In the end, it did not work out," GM said.

"The public's response to the new Corvette Stingray has been extraordinary, so we were glad to help when we were approached by the producers of the Super Bowl halftime show about the possibility of integrating a car into the show production," said the GM statement. "We worked with all the parties involved on a variety of possibilities, including one scenario that would have included the new Corvette Stingray as part of the show.

"In the end, it did not work out, but we were honored to be asked to be involved, and pleased the Corvette was the vehicle of choice."

The Detroit automaker sat on the sidelines during the Super Bowl, but awarded a Corvette Stingray to the Joe Flacco, the game's MVP.

Beyonce's performance generally earned praise, including some from First Lady Michelle Obama.

"Beyonce was phenomenal! I am so proud of her! —mo," she tweeted.

The 2014 Corvette Stingray made its official debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

Edmunds says: The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray would have provided some impressive firepower at the 2013 Super Bowl. Maybe next year.
