Yesterday we showed you the first images with the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible. Well, we don’t have the official details and specs yet, but we do have some more photos showing also the sexy back of the vehicle. We must admit that the 2014 Corvette Stingray is one hell of a car and the rear end of the car is even more impressive without the roof.
Although it is not yet official, power is likely to come from the same 6.2-liter V8 engine capable to deliver 450 hp (336 kW) and 600 Nm 450 lb-ft (610 Nm) of torque.
The car will probably use the same 7-speed manual gearbox which is offered as standard but for those who want more, the six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is also available.
If not satisfied, the customers can also buy the Z51 Performance Package, which offers the Magnetic Ride Control, electronic limited-slip differential, a new aero package and improved cooling. More details when the car will make its official appearance at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show!
Power like you’ve never seen before. The new Chevrolet Corvette was introduced at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and it brought shockwaves to the automotive industry. With an estimated 450 horsepower (335 kW) and 450 lb.-ft of torque, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray Convertible has established a new gold standard and has made itself the most powerful Corvette in its storied history.
According to GM vice president of global design, Ed Welburn, the convertible has always been “part of the heart and soul” of Corvette since 1953.
Welburn revealed that when it comes to the new Corvette Stingray, development of the coupe and the convertible were done at the same time. This resulted in the Corvette Stingray that offers the ultimate driving experience -- open-top driving that is built around topnotch performance, technology and design.
Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe, said that the new Stingray convertible will be launched at Geneva’s global stage because Corvette is the “face of Chevrolet” recognized around the world. Docherty remarked that the Corvette is admired even in places where it isn’t an official offering.
The Corvette Stingray coupe and convertible will out in the global markets by late 2013. Although there will be a common base for the new Stingray Coupe, Chevrolet will be making slight variations, such as lighting, headlamp washers, and outside mirrors, for the models intended for export as Chevrolet will need to factor in nuances in regulations of certain markets.
