2014 Corvette Stingray Designer Talks "Five Goals for the C7" [Video]
Redesigned from a blank sheet of paper, the new Corvette drew a lot of praise, but saw some criticism as well, especially from purists that thought the new styling was a bit far fetched.
To further explain the car's design, General Motors has released a short clip featuring Corvette's exterior design manager Kirk Bennion talking about the five goals his team had when it began working on the C7 Stingray.
"Anytime you do the cross-like design for the corvette it's a big deal. that design it's taken everywhere, it's in our apparel, it's in our advertising. We wanted to give it a little more speed. In the design work we do a lot of iteration, we try a lot of different things, but what you're pursuing is that right combination of surface and sculpture with the right amount of graphic and the right amount of detail," said Bennion.
