Chevrolet has launched the much-awaited seventh generation of its Corvette sports car – the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray. The 2014 Corvette Stingray is regarded as the most powerful standard model ever, thanks to its powerplant that provides up to 450 horsepower (335 kW) of output and 450 lb.-ft. of torque (610 Nm), allowing the car to sprint from zero to 60mph in less than four seconds, while achieving over 1g cornering grip.

The 2014 Corvette Stingray is also expected to be most fuel-efficient Corvette, as it is seen to surpass the EPA-estimated 26 mpg of the current model. General Motors North America President Mark Reuss remarked that like the ’63 Sting Ray, the “best Corvettes embodied performance leadership, delivering cutting-edge technologies, breathtaking design and awe-inspiring driving experiences.”

He quipped that the 2014 Corvette Stingray “goes farther than ever,” thanks to advancements in design, technology and engineering Chevrolet will produce the 2014 Corvette Stingray at the Bowling Green assembly site of its parent General Motors in Kentucky.

GM spent $131 million to upgrade the site, including around $52 million for a new body shop to build the aluminum frame in-house for the first time.  Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer, remarked that the car represents the “future of modern performance cars” since it delivers more power, more driving excitement and better fuel efficiency.
