2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Long-Term Road Test

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Instrument Panel Has a Secret To Tell

March 28, 2014

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

It had been months since I had driven our 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. After I started it, I glanced through the windshield and re-discovered the head-up display. As I was reaching for the button to shut it off (I know, I'm in the minority on this), I noticed it had a secret to tell. It would appear that a previous driver had, ahem, "come to grips" with the Corvette's prodigious grip in corners and the exploit was stored in the display.

Forgive the attempt to photograph and share said achievement, but on the meter that shows g-forces, it reads, "1.25 Gs."

Well done, sir or madam. The best I could manage was a mere 1.03g at the test track.
