2014 Corvette Stingray Premiere Edition marks 60 years of Corvette production

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 30, 2013

In order to celebrate 60 years of Corvette production, Chevrolet unveiled the 2014 Corvette Stingray Premiere Edition at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The new sports car is based on the top-of-the-line Corvette 3LT Coupe and features a Laguna Blue Metallic paint finish, a carbon fiber roof as well as a carbon flash hood stinger stripe.

Moreover, we find chromed wheels with Stingray logos in the center. Inside, the Brownstone interior features carbon fiber trim as well as special sill plates, floor mats and an exclusive number plaque.

Under the hood, there is a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine that delivers 460 hp and 430 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque. Bolted to a seven-speed manual transmission, the car zooms from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.8 seconds and runs the quarter mile in 12 seconds.

Furthermore, the 2014 Corvette Stingray Premiere Edition comes equipped with Magnetic Ride Control and the Z51 Performance Package, which includes electronic limited-slip differential, dry-sump oiling system, integral brake, differential and transmission cooling, as well as a unique aero package that further improves high-speed stability.

Chevrolet plans to build only 500 units of the 2014 Corvette Stingray Premiere Edition, so you’d better hurry if you want one. No words about the price yet!
