Back in 2013 at the Detroit Auto Show, the seventh-generation Corvette Stingray was unveiled, and right from the start you could see that it comes with a completely revised look, an updated interior and all new engine. Under its hood the new Stingray packs a 6.2-liter small-block V-8 engine that produces up to 460 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 465 pound-feet of torque at 4,600 rpm. This helps the new Stingray to sprint from 0 to 60 in under four seconds and to reach an anticipated top speed of 180 to 190 mph. When equipped with the Z51 package and the performance exhaust, the Stingray sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds. The 2014 Stingray can be yours for just $51.995, a fair price compared to its European counterparts.
Lovers of transformations and bold customizations may want more from the new Stingray, so for them the Company Callaway cars has confirmed the Aerowagon kit, capable of transforming the new Corvette Stingray in a fascinating and sporty shooting brake with only two seats, offering the flavor of the typical show-car.
The special Aerowagon kit comes with a price of $15.000 ( about €11.000 at current exchange rates), to which you can match the paint of the same color as the car with a premium of $1.500, while the costs of installation are excluded. The conversion kit is made of lightweight and durable carbon fiber and will not change the original shape of the headlights. The renewed aerodynamics of the body will slightly increase the Stingray’s top speed. Without being artificial, the aesthetic result is more appreciable and also the versatility of the car is improved thanks to a luggage compartment much larger and much better exploitable, and also thanks to the new tailgate which is able to offer a wider access. The interior is designed to accommodate only the driver and passenger, both embraced by high-containment seats.
In conjunction with the new Aerowagon kit, Callaway cars will make available to the American fans and lovers of adrenaline a mechanical kit dedicated to the powerful engine of the Stingray. The standard configuration of the Stingray features a 6.2 liter V8 engine that develops a power of 460 hp and 630 NM of torque, unloaded rear wheel drive via a seven speed manual transmission equipped with the Active Rev Matching (alternatively there is an automatic six-speed ) , which is able to squirt the car from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 4 seconds. Callaway Cars mechanical kit provides for the addition of a supercharging system, combined with a high flow suction system and an exhaust system with low resistance. These components are added to the system which changes also the fuel injection and the recalibration of the engine, all adding up to a price of $ 22.995.
