SKY'S THE LIMIT

New Sky Club Shirt 2017

The Sky Red Line performance model features an Ecotec turbocharged 2.0L engine, GM’s first direct-injection offering in North America. In stock form it produces 260 horsepower (194 kW) at 5,300 rpm and 260 lb.-ft. of torque (353 Nm) from 2,500 to 5,250 rpm.

Direct injection technology helps the Ecotec engine produce more power while maintaining the lower fuel consumption of a small displacement port-injected engine.

With direct injection, fuel is delivered directly to the combustion chamber to create a more complete burn of the air/fuel mixture. Less fuel is required to produce the equivalent horsepower, especially at normal cruising speeds, than a conventional port-injection combustion system.

The Red Line builds on the strong chassis and equipment of the base model Sky, with additional hardware – such as a performance-tuned suspension – to increase performance.

The Red Line also features several unique interior and exterior differences compared to the base Sky roadster, including dual polished aluminum exhaust outlets and 18-inch polished aluminum alloy wheels. The front lower fascia has unique styling elements, including functional brake cooling vents and a larger mesh pattern in the lower grille for improved air flow. The Red Line’s headlamp appearance also is different, with black bezels replacing the Sky’s bright finish.

The Red Line interior features a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, metallic sill plates, leather shift knob, stainless steel pedal covers, Red Line-specific gauges and a digital boost gauge included in the Driver Information Center.

Lots of fun. Handles like a go-cart. I told my wife this will be my last roadster. Getting too old. Getting "in" ain't so bad, but getting "out" is a beach. :-)

I believe there is a move on to get car manufacturers to align their products with those manufacturers of the EZ-IN&OUT-Recliners. It lifts up to place your butt in and then goes in to a seated position, and then just the opposite when it's time to get out.

I said to my wife the other day the 64 Corvette seems to be getting lower to the ground or I am getting taller. I now bump my head on the roof line......and I hear more knee cracking as I lower my manly heft to accordion in to the crunch position.

My wife told me to do more crunches........so I now eat peanut butter with nuts in it.

I hope she's happy..........I still can't get in to the car. SO much for listening to the wife.

Wow, white letter tires..........I miss them on our cars........it was an easy way to tell the driver's who used their tires as curb feelers when the letters were obliterated. Looking sharp..............I do mean the car. :-)

Thanks, AZ. I will be posting better pics soon. I think the white letters really added a nice touch. I'm looking forward to pics of your new 'Vette. I must confess that I'm a little envious. There is absolutely no way my wife would allow me to get a new 'Vette unless I threatened her with bodily harm :-)

azmusclecar on Jun 21, 2017 said:

There are reasons why some people don't have Vettes.....very good reasons........

some don't look good in them,

some people give the car a bad image,

and some people let their wives tell them what to do.

And some are all three..........

I feel badly for you with a wife owning your mancard ................

not bad enough to offer you a ride though... please review the first two reasons as to why I can't offer you that ride.

:-)
