Chevrolet Unveils 2014 Stingray Convertible, the Most Powerful Standard Corvette in History - New Video Available
Chevrolet is redefining modern performance with the all-new Corvette Stingray. And only a Corvette with the perfect balance of technology, design and performance can wear the iconic Stingray designation.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray is the most powerful standard model ever, with an estimated 450 horsepower (335 kW) and 450 lb.-ft. of torque (610 Nm). It is also the most capable standard model ever, able to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in around four seconds and achieve more than 1g in cornering grip. Moreover, the new Corvette Stingray is expected to beat the current model in terms of fuel economy.
All of the performance technology and capabilities introduced on the Corvette Stingray coupe carry over to the convertible. The only structural changes are limited to accommodations for the folding top and repositioned safety belt mounts. Central to the Corvette Stingray's driving experience is an all-new, more rigid aluminium frame structure, which is 57% stiffer and 45 kg lighter than the current steel frame.
The Corvette Stingray convertible features an all-new, fully electronic top that can be lowered remotely using the key fob. The top can also be opened or closed on the go, at speeds up to 50 km/h.
