When you own a car like the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, handing your keys over to the valet will undoubtedly make you a little bit nervous. Just think about this scene from the 1986 movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and you get the idea.
To help curb some of that nervousness, General Motors came up with an ingenious setting for the Corvette, called Valet Mode, and now the 2015 Corvette gets an available improved Valet Mode that will let owners record video, audio, and telemetry data while the car is out of their hands.
“Think of it as a baby monitor for your car,” said Harlan Charles, Corvette product manager, in a statement. “Anyone who has felt apprehension about handing over their keys will appreciate the peace of mind of knowing exactly what happened while their baby was out of sight.”
The improved Valet Mode is available as part of package that includes a navigation system and the Performance Data Recorder, which allows drivers to record their days out on the track.
Would having an improved Valet Mode in your 2015 Corvette make you feel more comfortable leaving it in the hands of the valet?
