The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C7 was auctioned at Barrett-Jackson for $1,100,000. The lucky winning bidder will get a car with a VIN ending in #0001.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray is the most powerful standard model ever. It is powered by a 6.2 liter LT1 V8 engine featuring Active Fuel Management, CVVT (Continuously Variable Valve Timing) and an Advanced Combustion System. The result is 450HP (335 kW) and 610Nm (450 lb-ft) of torque. 0-100 km/h in under 4 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) – electronically limited.
The sports car is also expected to be the most fuel efficient Corvette, exceeding EPA-estimated 26 mpg of the current model.
The all new Corvette Stingray incorporates an all-new frame structure chassis, a new powertrain and supporting technologies, as well as completely new exterior and interior designs. Highlights include: An interior featuring real carbon fiber, aluminum and hand-wrapped leather materials, two new seat choices – each featuring a lightweight magnesium frame for exceptional support – and dual 8” configurable driver/infotainment screens.
An available track-capable Z51 Performance Package including: an electronic LSD (limited-slip differential), dry-sump oiling system, integral brake, differential and transmission cooling, as well as a unique aero package that further improves high-speed stability.
