We all expected the new 2014 Corvette Stingray to be a beast of a car, but I’ve got to admit that the boys over at GM have really outdone themselves. The new 6.2L V8 engine for instance produces 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. It costs a mere $51,995.00 (a bargain), comes with a set of real seats, a new seven-speed manual with Active Rev Match technology, composite and carbon-fiber body panels, hydroformed aluminum frame with aluminum and magnesium structural and chassis components AND a perfect 50/50 weight distribution. What this all means is that for under 55k you will now be able to have a car that will (most likely) be able to go head-to-head (in stock form mind you) with some of the baddest automobiles the planet Earth has to offer.
Well done GM!!
