Planning your dream Corvette is now easier after the launch of a configurator for the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The only problem that is that you’d still need a good imagination since you can’t actually see the car that you’ve built. At the very least, you’d know what the options are and how they’re priced.
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray coupe has a starting price of $51,995 (including destination costs). Meanwhile, the convertible is priced from $56,995. The 2LT trim upgrade costs $56,205 for coupes and $61,205 for convertibles. Doing so gives the buyer the added value of heated seats, a Bose premium audio system, color head-up display, and auto-dimming mirrors.
The top of the range, the 3LT trim, raises the price to $60,000 for the coupe and $65,000 for the convertible. It comes with all features of the base 1LT and 2LT as well as a leather-covered interior, Nappa leather seats, an instrument panel that has the same color as the interior, and standard navigation system (an option on lower models that cost $795). Add $2800 if you opt for the Z51 performance package. Black, Arctic White, Torch Red, Blade Silver Metallic, Cyber Gray Metallic, and Night Race Blue Metallic are choices for exterior paint that won’t cost you anything.
Getting the Lime Rock Green Metallic raises the price by $495 as a premium paint option. Meanwhile, you pay $995 more for choosing Laguna Blue Tint Coat, Velocity Yellow Tint Coat, or Crystal Red Tint Coat. The configurator won’t show the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray in those colors but GM has another tool that can help in visualizing your dream Stingray.
Offered as standard on the non-Z51 Corvettes are silver-painted 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels while a chrome-plated version costs $1995, and a machined-face version is priced at $1495. In addition, Z51s get a set of 19-inch split-spoke alloy wheels finished in silver as standard. A chrome-plated set costs $1995 while black-painted wheels are priced at $495.
Chevrolet offers the seven-speed manual transmission as standard but the six-speed automatic with paddle shifters is an option that costs $1350. The automaker also offers the following options: Competition Sport Bucket Seats ($1995), carbon fiber interior trim ($995), custom Corvette-branded luggage ($920), yellow- or red-painted brake callipers ($595), and hood stinger stripe in Carbon Flash ($500).
