2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is the 7th generation model of the sportscar named after WW II warship

Andrea Divirgilio / January 14, 2013

Engineered to defy convention, designed on purpose to dismiss the ritualistic and the cliché, here’s the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, an entirely new machine that emerges with the aesthetic impact and the performance prowess worthy of the Stingray emblem. With distinct aeronautical lines, flowing exterior, and a sleek fastback finish, this stunning ride which is the 7th generation of the classical American sports car introduced after year 2005, is the most powerful and capable standard model ever, with an estimated 450 horsepower that enables it to accelerate from 0-60 in less than 4 seconds and achieve more than 1g in cornering grip. However, this completely-redesigned Corvette Stingray shares only two functional parts with the previous generation Corvette, and incorporates an all-new frame structure and chassis, a new powertrain and supporting technologies, as well as completely new interior design and exterior. Regarded as ‘C7′ Corvette by enthusiasts, this 2014 model which is expected to be the most fuel-efficient Corvette, was unveiled at the prestigious Detroit Auto Show, where we also saw the launch of the Bentley’s world’s fastest four-seat convertible and the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé and Cabriolet.
