The brand new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray’s are just starting to hit the streets and we’ve got some dyno results from one of the first customer purchased cars. The new C7 Corvette is powered by a direct injected 6.2L V8 with active fuel management and variable valve timing rated at 460HP from Chevy.
To see just how much power the new Vette makes in the real world, the folks over at LPE put this great looking Cyber Grey Metallic Stingray Covette on their DynoJet for a few baseline pulls. The new Corvette did very well putting down 416 horsepower and 416 ft-lbs of torque to the rear wheels through the 7 speed manual transmission. Using a 15% drivetrain loss this puts the new Corvette at 489 horsepower and torque which is almost as much as what the old Corvette C6 Z06 was rated at.
We’re sure LPE is already modding this new Corvette and we’re interested to see what kind of power gains are available as they become available soon. Take a look at the dyno graph, pictuers and video below and check back soon for the first timeslips we see come in from the drag strips:
