Chevrolet Corvette

After six long and beautiful generations, the Chevrolet Corvette is just as much a hot commodity as it was in 1953 when the first concept was rolled out for all to see. This American-made sports car comes in four different trims: Standard, Grand Sport, Z06, and ZR1. The standard Corvette and the Grand Sport are both powered by a 6.2L V8 engine that pumps out 430hp and 424 lb-ft of torque. Add the upgraded exhaust system and the models get 436hp and 425 lb-ft of torque. The Grand Sport differentiates itself from the standard model with a few upgrades, Z06 styling cues, and its won gear and rear-axle ratios. The Corvette Z06 is powered by a 7.0L V8 engine producing 505hp and 470 lb-ft of torque and the newer ZR1 boasts a 6.2L supercharged V8 delivering 638hp and 604 lb-ft of torque to the table. All engines are mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.

After months of speculation, spy shots and “leaked” 3-D images raising the anticipation level and the excitement of the fanboy in us, here it is folks, The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and yes, the iconic Stingray name is back since it was last seen in the C3 ‘Vette.

As promised, Chevrolet has taken off the wraps of what’s arguably one of its most highly anticipated cars. This is the day we at TopSpeed have been waiting for since all of this C7 talk started.

Rather than calling it the “Corvette,” Chevy boldly calls it the “New Corvette.” Calling it “new” is absolutely correct, as everything on the car is brand new. From a new design to a new powertrain to a brand new interior, Chevrolet has revolutionized every nook and cranny of the `Vette. But it still has that modern Corvette philosophy that has been retained for the past six generations, maybe even made it better.

Updated 04/27/2015: Chevrolet announced a series of upgrades for the 2016 Corvette Stingray, including some new design packages and new technologies.

Continue reading to enjoy our full review and check out whether we were impressed by the all new ‘Vette or if we think Chevy could’ve done better.
