Born in 1953, the Chevrolet Corvette has always been the foremost American sports car. Come to its seventh generation, the Corvette Stingray was officially unveiled at one of the most prestigious offshore car show, the 2013 Detroit Motor Show.
The seventh generation is the third model to name the word "Stingray" with the second (1963-1967) and the third model (1969-1976). As we can see at first glance, the shapes of the new C7 mark a beautiful cut with the past: those rounded shapes and almost familiar ones are abandoned, for more straight and sharp lines.
The new Corvette C7 Stingray debuts in the Italian list, at a price of 70.990 euros.
The European market models are equipped with the Z51 package, including Magnetic Ride Controls, Performance Traction Management System, aerodynamic kit, modified gear ratios, dry crank lubrication, dedicated radiator for differential and transmission, differentiated alloy wheels 19" and 20" and sports braking system with 345 mm front discs.
Choosing to offer the Z51 package exalts the American coupe's sporting qualities to meet the taste of Old Continent customers, who will find Corvette's seventh generation an interesting alternative to the most prestigious competitors at a competitive price.
The Stingray is capable of 460 hp and 630 Nm (with optional sports exhaust), delivered by the new V8 LT1 6.2 liter aspirated, combined with the seven-speed manual transmission. In this version, the Corvette touches 100 km/h from standstill in less than 4 seconds, while data on maximum speed and fuel consumption are still unknown.
