GMSV heads to the Mountain to display its line-up of American muscle.
General Motors’ local arm GMSV is heading to the Bathurst 1000 to show off its latest showpiece, the new C8 Chevrolet Corvette, alongside three of its big utes.
The American brand says it is its first outing since Covid-related restrictions put a stop to travel, meaning it is the first time GMSV is able to do a full model portfolio on the road.
On display, of course, is the new Corvette in right-hand drive, produced with the wheel on the correct side straight from the factory in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It will go on show at the National Motor Racing Museum for punters to look at.
“It’s fantastic to finally be able to showcase our entire range to Corvette and Silverado fans,” said Joanne Stogiannis, Director of GMSV Australia and New Zealand.
“We couldn’t think of a better opportunity to take the show on the road for our first-ever trip to Bathurst and this great race.”
Beyond the sleek new mid-engined supercar on display, which we’ve driven in both coupe and convertible bodystyle, will be the brand’s stalwart Silverado pick-up trucks including the new LT Trail Boss.
“This trip doubles as the public debut of the new Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty LTZ Premium and is the first occasion all three right-hand-drive C8 Corvettes in Australia, a Torch Red 3LT Convertible and two 3LT Coupe – one in Rapid Blue and the other Hypersonic Grey – will be out and about at a major event together,” said Stogiannis.
