Chevrolet Korea has announced they are having issues with commercializing the Corvette Stingray because it's simply too loud.

The engine noise regulations available in South Korea prevent Chevrolet from selling the Corvette C7 because its 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine is too noisy. Chevrolet Korea CEO Sergio Rocha said the model "is being delayed indefinitely" due to this law which according to him "may benefit the industry in the short run" but he questions its necessity in the future.

Chevrolet could probably find a way to make the Stingray quieter in order to comply with the local laws but it's probably too much of a hassle taking into consideration Rocha said only approximately 12 Corvettes are sold in South Korea each year so why bother.
