Five Goals for designing the Corvette C7 Stingray: Kirk Bennion, Corvette Exterior Design Manager

Kirk Bennion2 - exterior design manager - corvetteIn a recent interview with Autoweek Design Forum,  Kirk Bennion was asked: Was it daunting to work on a car with such a rich history?  His answer:I tell people, you acquire a tribal knowledge of the car. I learned some things while working on the Corvette from 1986 to 1989. And you do realize that one, you have to be very respectful of the car because it is such a huge icon, but there’s also a lot of effort that you have to put in a car like this. There’s a knowledge that you have to have for the past cars and there’s an expectation, but there’s also a willingness to take those cars to the next level. It’s a big-time commitment.”

The team had five goals when they began work on the 2014 Corvette Stingray. He says working on developing a Corvette is a “special deal … and we work on it as much as we can and as hard as we can.” Delve more into Kirk’s passion by checking out the video.

We think the team met those goals.  We hope you do too….
