Little Red Corvette

Little red Corvette
Baby you’re much to fast
Little red Corvette
You need to find a love that’s gonna last
Little red Corvette
Honey you got to slow down (Got to slow down)
Little red Corvette
‘Cause if you don’t you gonna run your
Little red Corvette right in the ground

It wasn’t much of a leap to today’s title song. This little red Corvette comes from Ben of Flickr, who has captured the ’67 Sting Ray superbly in Speed Champions form. See more via the link, and you can watch Prince’s title song here.

’63 Sting Ray – Picture Special

Lego Technic Corvette C2 Stingray 1963

This brilliant blue beauty comes from James Tillson of Flickr and Eurobricks. It is of course a C2 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray, which James has recreated superbly in Technic form. He’s built both the convertible and the coupe versions, but it’s the coupe that we’re concentrating on here, because it’s probably the most beautiful American car ever designed.

And this is why – what a rear window! The C2’s split rear screen only lasted for one year (1963) because – with a massive blind-spot right in the middle – it wasn’t the safest design. But it did look gorgeous.

James’ Sting Ray coupe is the 1963 version and thus includes that wonderful rear, and there’s a lots going on underneath too. With working steering, a miniature functioning V8 engine, semi-independent front and trailing-arm rear suspension with floating differential, opening doors and hood and the Corvette’s neat rotating pop-up lights all included, James’ build fully qualifies as Technic Supercar. There’s lots more to see on both Flickr and Eurobricks – click the links above to make like a banana and split.
