The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with an estimated 450 horsepower from an all-new 6.2L LT1 V-8 engine is able to accelerate from 0-60 in less than four seconds and will exceed the EPA-estimated 26 mpg of the current model when it goes on sale in the third quarter of this year. America's finest sports car? Could be.
Lightweight materials include a carbon fiber hood and removable roof panel, composite fenders, doors and rear quarter panels, carbon-nano composite underbody panels and a new aluminum frame help shift weight rearward for an optimal 50/50 weight balance. The Z51 Performance Package includes an electronic limited-slip differential, dry-sump oiling system, integral brake, differential and transmission cooling, as well as an aero package that further improves high-speed stability. This looks like the best answer to mid-life crisis and the ultimate retirement self-reward.
