Blue Devil Corvette confirmed………. February 12, 2007

The Corvette Blue Devil (or insert any other tag name here) has recently been confirmed to the public by  Bob Lutz.  While we knew a while back that this car is going to be produced, it is energizing for all Corvette enthusiasts to see their dream ultra vette is truly coming. 

GM product guru Bob Lutz has finally confirmed out loud to the press that the Corvette most commonly called the Blue Devil will be coming out as a limited production high performance level vehicle.  It will have a minimum of 600HP and carry styling cues to set it apart from the current Z06.  The price will be in the $100,000.00 U.S. range (Canadian pricing has not been set as of this post)

This sudden eagerness to talk about a the secretive Blue Devil project is in response to Dodge trying to get the upper hand in the performance car wars.  Dodge even skipped the 2007 model year and is offering their new 2008 Viper with 600HP.  This was the Dodge response to the gauntlet being thrown down by Chevrolet with the 2006 release of the 505HP Z06, with it’s superior handling and elegant styling.

Let me say, that after having driven several Vipers and the various versions of the Corvette Z06 , the new Corvette Blue Devil (Sting Ray, SS, Z07, Manta Ray, insert any name here) will prove to be the superior performance car. 

Corvette is already a legendary marque that has reached an iconic status amongst performance car enthusiasts. With a history that includes names like Fuelie, Tri-Power 427, L-88, Gran Sport, ZR-1 and Z06, C5-R and C6-R the Blue Devil (or whatever they call it) will be next natural progression.

As I have said before, we are ready………………Bring It On!
