2014 SEMA Show: Paul Stanley Stingray is one-of-a-kind Corvette

Article by Christian A., on November 4, 2014

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.

Paul Stanley Stingray

As the front man for one of the most successful rock groups in history, KISS’ Paul Stanley is an artist with an affinity for great style. He worked with Chevrolet designers to personalize a 2015 Corvette Stingray coupe, creating the perfect instrument that reflects Stanley’s creativity applied to America’s sports car.

First, Stanley selected the exterior scheme, with a unique candy red hue offset with Midnight Glaze Silver paint treatment on the roof, rear hatch, spoiler, outside mirrors and the front grille. He also helped select unique interior enhancements, including quilted parchment leather seats, along with additional parchment leather accents in the Jet Black cabin. There is dark red accent stitching throughout.

Stanley’s Stingray features the available Z51 Performance Package, which includes a dry-sump oiling system, electronic limited-slip differential, larger front brakes and a cooling package for the differential and transmission.

The car rolls on Chevrolet Accessories forged aluminum wheels – 19-inch front/20-inch rear – in Carbon Flash Metallic. They’re used with Michelin P245/35ZR19 tires in front and P285/30ZR20 tires in the rear.

Power comes from the 6.2L Gen V LT1 engine, rated at 460 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque with the available performance exhaust system. The LT1 features direct injection, continuously variable valve timing and Active Fuel Management. Stanley also selected the Stingray’s new, available eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, which delivers world-class shift times that rival the best dual-clutch designs – while also enabling EPA-estimated 29 mpg on the highway.

“It was great working with Paul Stanley, because of his vision and passion for design and automobiles,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. vice president, performance vehicles and motorsports.
