Video: Supercharged 2014 Corvette Stingray Does Donuts on a Frosty Morning

Posted on by  

Who said you can’t enjoy a supercar while it snows? This driver certainly didn’t want to stay indoors on a frosty morning, so he decided to crank up the C7 Corvette Stingray parked in his garage and head to a parking lot.

Yes, an empty parking lot on a snowy day with no one around except for a friend with a camera in his hand. Let’s do some donuts, shall we? And this isn’t just any Chevrolet Corvette Stingray . This one has a supercharger from Pfadt Race Engineering, which spools to bump the power output to 650 horsepower.

Pfadt Performance also offers a Stage 2 conversion for the C7 Corvette Stingray that includes headers, exhaust, tweaked ECU, etc. Also available is a body kit and wheels for the new C7 Vette.

That is more than sufficient to get the rear tires loose on an icy parking lot. And of course, a lot of fun despite the miserable weather.

The 2013 Detroit Motor show played host to the brand new C7 Chevrolet Corvette and the return of the "Stingray". Since then, deliveries of the Stingray have commenced and folks like the one in the video featured here have gone out and had their Vettes spruced up. The standard Corvette Stingray is powered by 6.2-liter, naturally aspirated V-8 with 455 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. This time, GM has gone with a seven-speed manual on the Corvette Stingray.

Sixty mph comes up in 3.8 seconds and the quarter-mile in 12 seconds at 119 mph. The 2014 Stingray is a much more sophisticated than its predecessors, thanks to double wishbones making up the front and rear suspension, while magnetic ride control offers different ride settings for specific driving styles.

The base price of the Corvette Stingray is $51,995. Customers do get the option of some performance upgrades which increase the output to 460 horsepower.
