According to SAE International, the 2015 Corvette Stingray will receive an all-new 8-speed automatic transmission. Known as the 8L90, the new 8-speed transmission will replace the 6L80 six-speed automatic transmission and offer a rated turbine torque capacity rated at 1000 Nm. As expected, the new transmission will offer improved fuel economy, performance and NVH.

Moreover, the transmission will have four simple planetary gearsets, two brake clutches and three rotating clutches, as well as an overall ration spread of 7.0. For those who don’t know, the Corvette Stingray uses a 6.2-liter V8 engine capable to develop 455 hp and 624 Nm (460 lb-ft) of torque.

For those who want more, the Corvette Stingray is available with the Z51 Performance Package which includes an electronic limited-slip differential; dry-sump oiling system; integral brake, differential and transmission cooling; as well as a unique aero package.

The 2014 Corvette Stingray equipped with the Z51 Performance Package is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds and does the ¼ mile in 12 seconds at 119 mph and it is able to brake from 60 mph to 0 in 107 feet.

The standard 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe costs $51,995 excluding tax, title and license fees. If you want the Z51 Performance Package you will have to add an extra $2,800.
