Aerodynamics, adaptability, authenticity — the 2014 Corvette Stingray is grade A, all the way. While many features continue the tradition for which the Corvette has become legendary, others are completely new to the 2014 model.
The exterior of the 2014 Corvette boasts well-sculpted, streamlined styling that contribute to more than just a trendy look. Aspects such as a removable roof and hood crafted of carbon fiber contribute to the 2014 model’s lower center of gravity, leading to optimum performance. The lightest and stiffest Corvette to date, the precision engineering of the 2014 model includes an aluminum space frame. Both the coupe and the convertible are making history in 2014 by sharing an identical frame structure. Lightweight materials and groundbreaking chassis increase the vehicle’s rigidity, leading to increased performance and reduced noise. Exterior vents provide increased downforce and advanced front-to-back ventilation for the completely balanced powertrain, redesigned this year for optimal racing balance.
The new powertrain include a 6.2L LT1 V8 engine that can go 0-60 in under 4 seconds. With 450 horsepower and 450-lb.-ft. of torque, this powerful machine requires precision handling in order to achieve its full potential. The transaxle layout provides ideal weight balance, while the compact engine design helps lower the center of gravity. Add to that the option of a dry-sump oil system with g-force cornering and a 7-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching, and you have some amazingly advanced technology under the hood.
From the cockpit of your newly designed 2014 Corvette Stingray, you can attain a fully customized driving experienced.
