2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray priced from $71,860?

Article by Christian A., on March 21, 2013

A 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is believed to cost $71,860. Chevrolet hasn’t made an official announcement yet but if you look closely at the Race To Win A Corvette contest rules, this figure is stated as the approximate value of the car that’s part of the grand-prize package. A trip for two to the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans race (priced at about $10,750) is also part of the prizes.

Previously, the only idea that we have about the pricing comes from a comment by Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter, who asserted that those who can buy the existing car can also afford the Stingray. The 2013 Corvette Coupe is priced from $50,595, which include shipping charges.

There’s nothing mentioned in the contest rules on whether the Corvette prize is a base car. It’s possible that the car being given away comes with several goodies, which include the Z51 Performance Package. A $20,000 add-on to the base price seems likely. The 6.2-liter V-8, 450-hp Stingray will be arriving in dealerships this fall. To enter the contest, just go to the racetowincorvette.com page or its Facebook page.

Another way is to tweet @TeamChevy and use the #Win2014Corvette hashtag. The contest officially started on March 15 and ends Aug. 12 at midnight. Only 18 years old and older can enter the contest.

Just two entries are accepted, one via the website or mail, and one through Twitter. Those win the Le Mans trip also get two plane tickets from an airport near the winner's home, hotel accommodation of five days and four nights, two tickets to the 24 Hours of Le Mans and spending money of $800.

New Chevrolet Corvette Stingray’s interior combines fine components and artistry with modern technology that plays a part in creating a more united and more appealing drive experience, according to Helen Emsley, interior design director.

She said that they insisted that each interior feature and detail should be designed to enhance the driver's connection to the Corvette. It all would start with a wraparound cockpit inspired by fighter jets; and will continue on to a build featuring a smaller steering wheel, seats with better support, and high-def, adjustable screens: and be comprised of amazing materials.

The smaller, 14.1” diameter (360 mm) steering wheel allows for a more straightforward, instant feel to control inputs. The consideration to the driver reaches to the tiniest details, such as the smooth, accurate stitches on the steering wheel that is meant to give a uniform, constant feel.

Accurate and refined stitches can also be found in the Napa leather trim now available for the brand-new seats.

There are two seating options being offered: a GT version for every-day comfort and a Competition Sport variation that has stronger side bolsters to provide better support when on the track.

The framework’s structure for all the seats is comprised of magnesium, which allows for a stronger and lighter steel frame when compared to similar structures. They're also sturdier, adding to the improved sense of support while on a performance drive.
