About Performance Tour III
Warren Tech Center, Milford Proving Ground, these are the mythic birthplaces of new General Motors vehicles including the Corvette. The Tech Center is home to Design, Engineering and support functions where the designer’s pen is first put to paper, CAD drawings appear on monitors and clay is laid onto bucks while engineers crank endless equations to elevate a world class car to even loftier heights. And once those designs and equations are translated into fiberglass and metal living breathing machines, they are perfected and tested at Milford Proving Ground, sharpening the performance to a state of the art peak.
MPG and The Tech Center are famous but shadowy places, known by many but rarely visible to the enthusiast world. In fact the MPG is so restricted that not even GM staff can just go for a visit. But once again the National Corvette Museum brings enthusiasts the very rare chance to enter the hallowed halls of The Tech Center and drive the tracks of Milford Proving Ground.
