Paul Stanley is best known for being the leader of the rock band Kiss but he is also a painter and his latest masterpiece is a custom 2015 Corvette Stingray Coupe developed in collaboration with Chevrolet. The vehicle was shown today at the 2014 SEMA Show and it features a unique candy red colour complemented by the Midnight Glaze Silver paint on the roof, rear hatch, spoiler, outside mirrors and on the front grille.
The interior arrives with quilted parchment seats wrapped in leather and parchment leather accents in the Jet Black cabin as well as red accent stitching. This custom Corvette Stingray also features the Z51 Performance Package, which means it gets a dry-sump oiling system, electronic limited-slip differential, larger front brakes and a cooling package for the differential and transmission.
In addition, the coupe received 19-inch front/20-inch rear forged aluminum wheels in Carbon Flash Metallic, wrapped in Michelin tires. Under the hood, there is the standard 6.2-liter V8 LT1 engine producing 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque with the performance exhaust system.
The engine is bolted to a new 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, which enables an EPA-estimated 29 mpg on the highway.
