Haven't seen it, so I can't say if it's the same one or not, but there was a metallic blue Corvette at the HM dealership at Cadbury in Bombay last year some time. Sounds to me like it's doing the rounds trying to drum up some sort of excitement for the Chevrolet brand in India, while, ironically, abroad the dilution of the Chevrolet brand means that Corvettes are actually being sold in Cadillac dealerships in Europe! Way to go GM!

Forget the 'vette, I wanted to see the SSR. But no luck, the Mahalaxmi Fortpoint did not have any cars on display.

Anyone have an idea where they would be now?

Because the car was imported a year or so back and they don't want to re-export it. In any case, it's not like they are trying to sell Corvettes here, so it's irrelevant which model they display, it's just to showcase what Chevrolet has in their stable!
