Chevrolet has announced the 2015 MY Corvette will be available with an optional Performance Data Recorder system.
Introduced at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the Performance Data Recorder system has been co-developed with Cosworth and encompasses a 720p high-def camera located in the windshield header, a cabin-mounted microphone and a GPS receiver which can track the Stingray’s location five times quicker than the navigation system.
With this system the driver can record his actions behind the wheel and also has the possibility of overlaying the footage with telemetry data which then can be saved on the 8GB or 32GB SD card installed in the glove box department. The recorded data can be analyzed on the vehicle’s dashboard screen or it can be accessed from a computer and further analyzed using Cosworth’s Toolbox software.
Pricing hasn’t been disclosed but Chevrolet says the optional feature will be offered for the 2015MY Corvette which is set to enter production in the third quarter of the year.
