General Motors held a special sneak preview the night before the official start of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show for the all new 2014 C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. For 2014, Chevrolet has completely redesigned America's favorite sports car complete with lightweight carbon fiber construction, a powerful yet fuel efficient LT1 small block V8, as well as a luxurious high tech interior complete with a fully programmable digital instrument cluster. However, the big news of the night is that the Stingray nameplate is back.
Up front a pair of LED lit vertical headlamps sit on either side of the classic Corvette cross flag emblem and ahead of an all new carbon fiber hood vent that serves to extract hot air out from the engine bay and channel it over the car (as opposed to passing it underneath), increasing down force and making the C7 Stingray go around corners with the greatest of ease, while fender vents are complimented by a pair of sharp looking stingray emblems.
Out back the C7 Corvette Stingray sports a fat quad tipped exhaust as well as a set of all new, more square, taillights that are more reminiscent of a new Camaro than the familiar round stoppers of a classic Corvette. On the inside, the 2014 C7 Stingray sports a fully customizable instrument binnacle and for the first time, optional competition sport buckets are available for those die-hard driving enthusiasts.
