It seems that where ever the 2014 Corvette Stingray goes, there’s an unveiling. Last weekend in the Corvette Corral tent at the 12 Hours of Sebring wasn’t any different.
With Corvette Chief Engineer beginning his discussion about the next generation car, Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles and Corvette Assembly Plant Manager Dave Tatman pulled the cover off the Cyber Gray Corvette Stingray Coupe to a huge round of applause (and a few tears) from the enthusiasts in the crowd.
As Tadge continued with his points on the new Stingray, Harlan popped the carbon fiber top off the coupe to reveal the Kalahari Grand Touring seats. Harlan made the roof removal look effortless as the new roof only weighs 16 pounds. The top was stowed in the rear and you’ll be able to see how well it fits back there.
This was our third time to the see the new Stingray up close and due to the intimate setting, we had an opportunity to take a lot of close up photos as well as pics of the estimated 450 hp LT1 V8 nestled in the engine bay.
