2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/corvette-stingray/2014/?id=32972 The C7 Corvette Stingray is a new version of an American classic and an icon as well. The all-new 2014 model tells the rest of the World that American sports cars mean business. The 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray can compete with the best from Germany and Italy at a fraction of the price. The base model Stingray Convertible starts at $56,000 and has the performance to hang with the super exotics of the world. The Z51 Convertible tested here has an MSRP of $58,800. The Chevrolet Corvette is an American Icon that has withstood the evolution of the automobile industry for decades. The 7th generation Corvette Stingray represents a dramatic departure from the rounded design language of Corvette from the past. There is a lot that is upgraded and updated for the 21st century but at the core, the Corvette Stingray Convertible is still instantly recognizable. Up front is a wide mouth aggressive fascia with an integrated chin spoiler. There is a unique vent in the hood to let in cold air and the LED headlights are in line with the exotic cars of the world. This Z51 model has dark blacked out rims that are wrapped in barely street legal Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Out back is one of the most dramatic changes with the squared-off taillights which are no longer rounded. Under the hood of the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray Convertible is an LT4 6.2 liter V-8 engine that makes 455 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 MPH flies by in 3.8 seconds and fuel economy is 17 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway. The convertible top can be operated up to speeds at 30 MPH. The great thing about the convertible system is the hard tonneau cover that hides the folded top.
