2014 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
What do you get when you mix composite carbon nano and carbon fiber, lightweight magnesium tubing seat frames, extruded aluminum for the lightweight but incredibly sturdy frame, and put a 6.2 liter LT1 V8 in front? The new Corvette Sting Ray of course! When the Stingray name was first introduced by Chevrolet, it was back in 1959 on the Corvette Stingray Racer and the name was used on various iterations of the Corvette through the years.
For consignment a fast Corvette in 2014 form. Stingray is the designation, and this sports car from Chevrolet is lean and fast, with plenty of creature comforts to amuse you while you go fast. From its chromed aluminum wheels, to its all fiberglass cowled carbon fiber trimmed, and finned body, all form has a function, and that is why this is called America's sports car. No stones left unturned here ladies and gentlemen!
This aerodynamically sculpted car is bathed in Arctic White, which shows nearly perfect. Some nifty black accents for the hood vent trims and side vents which also serve as a ram air system when up to speed. All integrated bumpers, headlights, and thick rounded rear, now taking on the Camaro-esque taillights above a quad cluster of centered exhaust piping below. A simple but elegant rear spoiler just barely protrudes from the trunk deck and runs into the canvas convertible top which presents in black. This top is immaculate and sports a glass window and power functions for the up and down controls. Carbon fiber for the hood to lessen the weight, and 18-inch upfront wheels and 19-inch for the back, all shined and menacing complete the exterior.
Black, (like the top), leather mixes with black and silver accenting and makes up this beautifully sculpted interior. The door panels are a lesson in integrated mixture of black and faux brushed aluminum complete with seat memories, power locks, and power windows. Looking to get in, we see sculpted simple design seats, with smooth leather seats all bathed in more black. A black tub gracefully forms around this leather and adds some structural reinforcement, which definitely keeps you in that seat during acceleration. A central console races forward to the dash and utilizes the same black and faux brushed aluminum surfaces to make a sculpted ergonomic, simple designed but highly functional area for the driver. Here we note the controls for the driving mode and toggle parking brake actuator. Also, the small shifter and a storage/ashtray area. Moving upward are sculpted rounded buttons which control A/C Heat, Defrost, fan speeds and airflow options. Directly above is a premium Bose Audio, 8-inch touch screen Bluetooth, streaming XM capable, Navi, OnStar capable, premium audio system. A heads-up display is seen in front of the multi-function button adorned steering wheel.
A 6.2 Liter LT1 original to this car V8 power mill produces 455 horses. This is fed by EFI and pushes power rearward to a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shift capability, attached to a 2.56 limited slip rear axle.
With the odometer showing a mere 9,984 original miles, this underside is showroom. No rust, just a mixture of steel and aluminum, all shiny and bright. SLA independent suspension is all around, power disc brakes also in all 4 corners, and these are nice and big. A big stainless steel exhaust snakes its way rearward from that LT1 mill.
Slipping into the newer, (2014 and up), Corvettes is like putting open a nicely worn leather glove. The interior seating grabs you and holds you securely within the confines of the performance that is about to happen. A push of the button and she lights right up, and it's off to the test track. Here it performed with neck snapping acceleration, wonderful speed, and with those 6 gears a low RPM cruise. The exhaust sound was tastefully loud, and all the creature comforts were fully operational. Stopping power is awesome, and it is very difficult to break the rear tires loose, you get just pure acceleration topped with only exhilaration!
Think of driving a piece of sculpture that is highly functional on the performance front. Yes, there are a few bells and whistles that will come with a newer 'Vette, however this one is virtually new with the mere miles put on since its purchase. Great color, lots of tech options, and your dream car because who does not dream of owning a Corvette? Now is your chance, don't let it speed by.
