Back in 2013 at the SEMA Show, General Motors unveiled the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe Pacific Concept and the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible Atlantic Concept. Both concept cars received positive feedback and as a result, GM decided to offer the Atlantic and Pacific Design Packages for the 2015 Corvette Stingray.
The new Design Packages are to go on sale later this year with the rest of the 2015 Corvette Stingray lineup. The 2015 Corvette Stingray Atlantic Design Package is inspired by the luxury and performance of jets and it is offered only on Z51-equipped convertibles. Moreover, this design package is available in 2LT and 3LT trims.
The Atlantic Design Package adds a front Z06-style splitter, Shark Gray exterior vents, hood “stinger” graphic and tonneau inserts, Chrome Torque wheels fitted with Stingray center caps, Stingray underhood liner and floor mats, custom splash guards, a frame for the rear license plate and logo valve stem caps, as well as custom luggage.
GM will offer the Atlantic Design Package in all colors offered on the Corvette Stingray. The 2015 Corvette Stingray Pacific Design Package is inspired by the West Coast drivers who love the weekend track events. Just like the Atlantic Design Package, the Pacific Design Package is available only on the Z51-equipped coupe, in 2LT and 3LT trims.
The Pacific Design Package adds new color choices such as Torch Red, Black, Arctic White, Blade Silver as well as the new Shark Gray, a new color available for 2015. In addition, satin black full-length racing stripes are added, but also new satin black Z51 wheels featuring red stripe and Stingray center caps.
Furthermore, the vehicle comes with “CFZ” carbon fiber ground effects package and visible carbon fiber roof panel, Carbon Flash rear spoiler, outside mirrors and exterior badges, red brake calipers, Competition Sport Seats in red or black, carbon fiber interior trim, Stingray sill plates and floor mats, custom splash guards, rear license plate frame and indoor car cover (gray).
Under the hood, the vehicle comes with the standard 6.2-liter V8 engine that generates 450 hp and 450 lb-ft (610 Nm) of torque. The engine is bolted as standard to the seven-speed manual transmission, but for the 2015MY the Corvette Stingray will get the optional 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission.
