As Carscoops points out, Japan is probably not the first setting that comes to mind for a Corvette, but that’s exactly where Chevrolet is dropping its latest edition of the Grand Sport. Dubbed the “Admiral Blue Heritage Edition,” the limited edition vehicle comes swathed in a bright shade of blue and sports a bold white racing stripe along with red accents throughout. A carbon fiber aerodynamic package also comes standard on the car while black leather and suede cover the entirety of the interior. As per usual, a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 is under the hood and capable of 460 horsepower.
Limited to just five production models, the unique Corvette will soon be offered in Japan for about $115,000 USD.
Pirelli recently unveiled its color options for its P Zero tires, offering a new way to customize your car. Drawing from the technology used in Formula One, Pirelli engineers developed a material to color the sidewall lettering and stripes found on the tires without the possibility of fading despite time and use. Available in red, yellow, silver and white, expect Pirelli’s colored P Zero tires to hit retailers in the near future.
Additionally, Pirelli is also introducing its new Connesso chip, which measures tire pressure, tire temperature, vertical load, tire wear, and the number of kilometers driven per tire sending the information to the driver’s smartphone.
