If the Chevrolet Corvette isn't the first vehicle that comes to mind when you think of technological innovation - there is, after all, something resolutely old-school about even the latest Stingray - it might be time to recalibrate your viewpoint.

Announced today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is the new Corvette Performance Data Recorder. Developed with Cosworth, the system incorporates a high-definition 720p video camera in the windshield header, a microphone in the cabin and a GPS receiver that tracks the vehicle's location five times faster than the navigation system.

The system allows drivers to record their pedal-to-the-metal romps behind the wheel of their Stingray, overlay the footage with telemetry data (in Track, Sport, Touring or Performance mode) and save it to the SD card in the glove box. They can then review it by the side of the road or track on the Corvette's eight-inch dashboard display, or load it onto their computer to share with other enthusiasts and analyze with the Cosworth Toolbox software.

The system will be made available on 2015 Corvettes starting later this year, with pricing yet to be announced. If you like what you see so far, you can delve into all the details in the press release and videos below, and be sure to check out the gallery of screen captures above.
