Chevrolet has announced the 2015 Corvette will be equipped with a comprehensive Valet Mode.

Described as a "baby monitor for your car," the Valet Mode is activated by entering a unique four-digit code into the infotainment system. When this happens, the glove box and storage bin are locked and access to the infotainment system is blocked until the code is re-entered. Models equipped with the Performance Data Recorder can even record HD video, in-car audio and vehicle data such as speed, gear position, g-forces and engine RPM.

According to Corvette product manager Harlan Charles, "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.” Charles went on to say “[The] Performance Data Recorder was initially designed as a tool for track days, allowing drivers to record their laps and improve their driving skills [but] we soon realized the system could have many more applications, such as recording a scenic drive up Highway 101, or recording when the Valet Mode is activated.”
