No Corvette Stingrays for the South Koreans

By Faiming_low on 16 Nov 2014 in Super cars, Other News

Attached Image If you happen to live in South Korea and want to have your own Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray, it seems like your dreams might have to be put on hold for a while. Quite a while to be exact. According to GM Authority, Chevrolet Korea CEO Sergio Rocha said that the launch of the Stingray will be 'delayed indefinitely' due to Korea’s regulation on automobile noise at a recent press event for Chevrolet Korea.
 
Given that only 12 Corvettes are imported into Korea each year, it seems pretty unlikely that Chevrolet is going to waste time and effort to come out with a solution to the problem.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

"..regulation on automobile noise..." most likely it wont happen here bcuz those noisy sports car generate more revenue for government rather than noise to environment.
