Chevy Spark & MTV Promote Emerging Artists

The 2013 Chevy Spark has been a frequent topic of conversation since its release in the U.S. a few months ago. The stylish mini car takes on a personality of its own as an adventurous urban vehicle with worldly experience. While versions of this conveniently sized car have been zipping around throughout the world for some time, the Spark is just starting to explore in the U.S.

The Chevrolet Spark will continue its journey around the U.S. while taking some passengers along for the ride through a partnership with MTV.  This partnership will bring breaking artists from around the world to the United States through an online music showcase called “Cover the World.”

Four global artists will create a cover of an iconic pop song chosen by fans through online voting. Fans will then vote for their favorite cover version, earning them the chance to win a custom-wrapped Chevy Spark and a trip for two to see one of the acts perform. Fans can also win a Chevy Spark by creating and uploading their own cover version of the song.

The four participating artists are U.S.-based All Time Low, Jamaican artist Gyptian, the South Korean group The Wonder Girls, and Angus Stone from Australia. To learn more about the artists, songs, or how to participate, visit www.covertheworld.com.

Chevrolet Corvette’s 60th Anniversary Edition Is Sure To Turn Heads

Chevrolet is getting ready for the 60th birthday of one of their signature vehicles, the Corvette. While they’re getting ready let’s take a peek at some of the history of the iconic Chevrolet Corvette.

On January 1953, the GM Motorama show, held at the world re-known Waldof-Astoria in New York City. In front of a room full of onlookers lay the bell of the showroom, and the first of what would eventually become one of the globe’s most recognizable cars, the Chevy Corvette.

1953 Chevy Corvette

Let’s jump forward ten years. After the Corvette was introduced, the Chevrolet design team saw fit to shake things up again with an innovative new design. 1963 showcased the Corvette Sting Ray. The unique design was inspired by General Motors design chief Bill Mitchell. The Sting Ray was the first modern American car to feature an independent rear suspension.

Here’s a quick fun fact for Corvette fans, 1983 is the only year no Corvettes were produced for public sale. The only place to see on of the restored 83 Vette’s is the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY.

Chevy produced the 1 millionth Corvette in 1992. The flagship of the Corvette’s, the ZR-1 with a V8 engine, first hit the streets in 1990.

January of 2012 let loose the 60th Anniversary 2013 Convertible Collector Edition. This model has been promoted as the fastest convertible in the Corvette’s history. For the speed obsessed driver, Chevrolet created the 2013 Corvette ZR1 equipped with a handcrafted LS9 638-horsepower supercharged V8 engine and a test track top speed of 205 mph. This ZR1 is the fastest car Chevrolet has ever produced.
