Chevrolet Corvette C7

The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is the C7 generation for the hallowed `Vette. In its standard format, it includes an all-new 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 engine that wallops pavement with 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. The Corvette Stingray debuted at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, MI. It features a lightweight body and frame that makes the car stiffer, faster and better handling. Additionally, the Stingray is now the most powerful base-model Corvette ever offered.

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.
