Watch Corvette Stingrays Roll Down The Production Line: Video


The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has received about as much coverage as a car can get.

There's one thing you may not have seen though: how it's made.

No, you didn't accidentally switch over to the Science Channel. This video from SupercarHall details the glorious process of turning a bunch of parts into "America's Sports Car."

At General Motors' Bowling Green Kentucky assembly plant, humans and robots work together to clothe bare chassis in bodywork, fit interiors, and marry complete drivetrains with the cars they will power.

It's amazingly high-tech yet, at the same time, amazingly mundane.

Shots of robots welding cars together and humans bolting seats into place are nothing new, but these are Corvettes. If nothing else, seeing how they're put together will heighten your emotional response to the inevitable YouTube video of one crashing.

After that, the finished Corvettes are lined up, briefly dyno tested, and wrapped in plastic for shipment.

Stingrays started shipping to dealers just a few weeks ago, and there are surely many owners waiting for their cars like 20-somethings on new iPhone release day.

In another important ritual in the run up to a showroom debut, the Stingray recently made a run around the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.
