Chevrolot / the Detroit BureauThe 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is powerful "Base" ' Vette ever.

When it comes to the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette stingray, decided General Motors Soni and Mr.

The manufacturer had originally said it expected a fans than the C7, the new sports car to make already-impressive 450 HP, known as soon as the final numbers were calculated. In fact, the Corvette come in at 455 Horsepower, and the optional high performance exhaust package, will be up to 460 ponies came.

This is the Chevrolet Corvette of the strongest base car make in the long and colorful history of the ' Vette, which debuts six decades ago. But he alone is not the whole story of the new two-seater has completely for 2014 remake and the GM now hopes it helps more directly with the European brands to compete, have dominated the global car market.

The heart of the Stingray is its LT1-6, 2-liter V8. The brand new engine has extensive tests and optimizations approaching production, leading GM engineers originally conservative estimates, who spend their last performance subjected numbers. Other manufacturers, the first over promised and under delivered heavy hits on the market - have and even penalties to pay if their production versions were found, had to to less than as promised to produce.

In base trim, the LT1 makes 455 HP and 460 pound-feet of torque. In comparison to the end of 2013 Chevrolet Corvette 430 Horsepower and 424 lb-ft. New C7 can also be ordered with an optional exhaust package, which improves breathing its engine and ups ante 460 HP and 465 lb-ft.

"The 2014 Corvette Stingray LT1 engine is a triumph of the advanced technology, delivers more power and torque than ever with greater efficiency," Jordan Lee, Chief Engineer on the motor program boasts.

"The LT1 performance complemented the Corvette low mass with a tremendous sense of power, which builds as the RPM climbs", he added. "Drivers experience more power and Acceleration than ever, with the standard motor-in fact, its power and torque exceeding many parent modules from competitors offered."

But that is only part of the story. The new C7 is balanced as the outgoing model easier and better. Engineers has a wide variety of light-weight materials, such as roof and bonnet made of the same carbon-fiber, found in many of the most exotic models from the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini - for much more money. Meanwhile, the Powertrain as low as possible to improve, has mounted the new Corvette focus.

With a better ratio of "Weight of power" then the 2014 Corvette Stingray will supply Chevrolet is still better off-the-line starts as raw performance around 4 seconds 0 to 60 could be suspect. Now meet his improved weight and balance in better handling in curves and corners translate, if the new model is expectations.

Chevrolet since certainly builds expectations, especially after it, that it would have to delay the introduction of the C7, which it originally hoped acknowledged in a timely manner to the last year's celebration of the 60th anniversary of the sports car will be launching. revealed earlier this year, had the program be stopped in fact twice again in 2009 due to financial problems of GM once in the run-up to and during its bankruptcy. Senior Program Manager have joked that this proved to be as advantage, by them the way the original plans to exceed.

Among other things, this allows them to revise, the adoption of a more radical form as originally adopted the design of the edgy new sports car.

"This version almost does not happen," C7-Design Director Tom Peters, discovered during a private conversation.

Despite more power than all previous versions of the Corvette, get best mileage of 26 mpg on the highway according to EPA testing the 2014 model.

The apparent contradiction highlights the adoption of new drive technologies such as direct injection, variable valve timing and active fuel management, which some of the close the eight cylinders when the new Corvette roll off or cruises.

The new sports car is the "Stingray" designation, previously only the most powerful corvettes is reserved provided the first in the coming decades. But Chevy Insider have on the whole, suggested that even more powerful spin-offs, such as the Corvette Z06 and ZR1 ' Vettes follow over the next few years, as well as the convertible version was during the Geneva Motor Show in March

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe will end this summer for a starting price of $51.995 start. The convertible will follow by the end of the year.
