Chevrolet has developed a ground-breaking new technology that will allow its customers to unlock Corvette-like performance from their vehicle at the push of a button. Introducing the Corvette Controller.
Operating the Corvette Controller is simple: just point it at any Chevrolet vehicle and use the gamepad’s shoulder trigger buttons, joysticks and various buttons to accelerate, brake and steer. Under the command of the Corvette Controller, Chevy owners will find their vehicle performs exactly like a C8 Corvette Stingray, accelerating from zero to 60 mph in as little as 2.9 seconds and cornering at up to 1.03 g. The controller is compatible with any new Chevy vehicle, from the subcompact Trailblazer crossover to the full-size Chevy Silverado pickup and everything in between.

“Chevrolet Arabia combined two passions that go hand in hand with young drivers in the region; performance vehicles and gaming,” the company said in a statement. “How, you ask? With the truly epic-looking Corvette Controller – a wireless controller that gives any Chevrolet the beastly performance of the All-New 2020 Corvette Stingray.”
The gamepad’s appearance is inspired by the styling of the C8 Corvette, featuring the sports car’s iconic cross flags logo, black and red accents, hand-stitched napa leather on the handles, carbon fiber trim and fast-react tungsten triggers. The controller connects to the car via Bluetooth, making setup simple and straightforward.
For readers who haven’t noticed by now, the Corvette Controller is Chevy’s way of making us laugh this April Fool’s day. While it would be amazing if this technology existed, it should go without saying that it would be impossible for a Bluetooth controller to radically change the performance of a vehicle. That said, we think Corvette-loving gamers would be very excited to get their hands on Corvette-branded a Playstation or Xbox controller that looks like this. It’d be perfect for driving the C8 Corvette Stingray in Forza Horizon 4!
Happy April Fool’s day, GM Authority readers!
