Yesterday ChevroletÂ revealed their 2014 Corvette Stingray(See article here). In the last six decades this car has been redesigned up to seven times with the 1960’s edition ranking at the top. While some have appealed to the new looks and performance package, others have been criticizing it like it’s a Datsun F-10. While some people like the new changes others complain that the car has lost its heritage and iconic features which includes the back-end of the car and the round like shapes that flowed from the front to the back. I think that if you don’t like it don’t buy it. If you think that you know the Corvette heritage and how it should look by all means go to DetroitÂ Michigan and start showing them your blue prints of how your redesign from a fifty year old classic should look like. There is enough complaining in the world about real life problems and some of these people are nagging about the fact that this car has to many “body lines” on an American made sports car? There will be no heritage if there is never innovation. It sounds like a lot of old people complaining how thingsÂ aren’tÂ as good as they use to be. I would like to see your classic go from zero-60 in 4 seconds.
Now that I got that out of my system, the Stingray or sometimes called “C7”, kicks out 450 horsepower at 6000 rpms and has 450-lbs of torque at 4000 rpms under the hood. Chevrolet says the output is enough to get the C7 from 0-60 in 4.0 seconds. It also comes with a cylinder deactivation system that saves fuel by turning the 6.2 liter V8 into a 3.1 liter. This brings the highway rating up to 26-mpg. It has a seven speed manual transmission with steering wheel shifting paddles. Inside you will experience premium Nappa leather, micro suede as well as brushÂ aluminumÂ and carbon fiber trimmings.Â
