2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51! Testing the New High Tech Vette! - Ignition Ep. 77
Finally! On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago gets behind the wheel of
Chevrolet's hotly anticipated 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51, the most
technologically advanced production Corvette ever made. First, Carlos heads
to the test track to put the reborn 460hp V8-powered Stingray through the
full barrage of Motor Trend's instrumented tests: 0-60 mph acceleration,
quarter mile, 60-0 mph braking, lateral acceleration, and figure-eight.
The raw data backs up what Carlos can already feel from the driver's seat -
the 2014 Corvette goes fast, stops quick and handles corners with ease.
Then, its off to the winding roads of Central California to see how the C7
Vette's continuously variable-locking differential, magnetic damping, rev
matching and other high-tech features perform in the real world.
