Better-than-ever acceleration, cornering and braking - plus race track-proven aerodynamics - shoot the Stingray into new territory. Corvette’s seventh-generation grand tourer also gives you a hand-finished interior – your theatre for a thrilling, engaging drive – and brilliantly connected infotainment. Stingray even automatically calibrates its systems to match the road ahead. And, with the maximising Z51 performance package as standard, there can only be one winner. And now with the industry-exclusive Performance Data Recorder you can record, share and analyse your driving experiences on and off the track.
Stingray’s breathtaking, streamlined form is race-track and wind tunnel-proven. Five air vents in the bonnet, front bumper and rear, boost the car’s powerful aura, cool the engine and reduce lift. Bi-Xenon High-Intensity Discharge headlights and four-element taillights flash your advance; iconic Corvette Stingray badges sign your arrival.
Stingray features sharp, beautifully sculpted head and taillights that emanate crisp colour, brightness and efficiency. Functional aerodynamics form an aggressive look while providing optimal lighting performance.
Stingray was always designed as an open-top car. So the convertible is very closely aligned to the coupe, with no extra structural bracing or other compromises. Indeed, the drop-top is 57% stiffer than the previous generation Corvette coupe, with weight ideally spread 50/50 across front and back axles. Advanced systems, including Driver Mode Selector and Performance Traction Management, make the car responsive and easy to drive.
To activate the Stingray convertible's electrically powered roof when you're parked, simply squeeze the key fob. It deploys quickly and fully automatically, with no fiddly mechanical catches to worry about. You can also raise or lower the top at speeds of up to 48km/h, so ideal if the weather quickly changes.
To unleash Stingray’s full race track potential, the Z51 performance package includes:
Stingray’s interior space is pure and dynamic, with a single sweeping contour unifying the instrument console and panel, and door trim. The smaller, 360mm super-tight steering wheel gives you a more direct, race-track feel.
Connecting you closely with the car’s performance, an 8" high-definition touchscreen displays key data and configures automatically when you switch drive mode.
Inside Stingray’s cockpit, premium materials and a crafted finish accelerate your pleasure. Panels and steering wheel are hand-wrapped and stitched in sensuous leather or suede-effect microfibre; hard surfaces are in gleaming aluminium or carbon-fibre. Bolstered seats, with a performance-boosting lightweight magnesium frame, cradle you perfectly.
Stingray features a light, stiff space frame for optimal 50-50 weight distribution and impressive power-to-weight ratio. With the world’s fastest-acting suspension, a 6.2-litre LT1 V8 engine and a choice of 7-speed manual with Active Rev Matching or available 8-speed paddle shift automatic transmission, Stingray is a true performance sports car.
The 6.2-litre LT1 V8 engine boasts up to an available 466 horsepower and an available 630 Nm of torque while achieving a 0-100 time of 4.2 seconds. A distinctive rear transaxle layout achieves optimal weight balance. Compact engine design lowers the bonnet and the vehicle's overall centre of gravity. And a dry-sump oil system, included with the Z51 Performance Package, delivers oil flow through high g-force cornering.
Standard in Z06 and included in Stingray with the Z51 Performance Package, Corvette features a dry-sump oil system, whereby oil is pumped into the engine from a 9.3 litres-capacity tank within the engine bay, ensuring oil flow to critical areas is not affected by high g-force cornering. The Corvette oil system is also enhanced by eight oil-spraying jets in the engine block, which reduce piston temperature for extreme output and long-term durability.
Record, share and analyze your driving experiences on and off the track with the industry-exclusive Performance Data Recorder1. Add an extra dimension to your drive by logging video of your drives, along with real-time performance data, on an SD memory card stored in the glove box. Four modes — Track, Sport, Touring and Performance — allow you to capture video, audio, driving stats, date and time, and a lot more.
Electric power steering eliminates road shake, enhancing overall responsiveness. Standard Brembo® brakes deliver confident stopping power while Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport summer-only tyres3 - exclusive to Stingray - optimise ride, grip and handling. Put simply, Stingray does exactly what you want it to do, and it does it extremly well.
Stingray incorporates the world's fastest-acting suspension. Available Magnetic Selective Ride Control™ is a real-time damping system that "reads" the road every millisecond and can adjust in under 15 milliseconds. Available Performance Traction Management features five settings tailored to driving skill level and track conditions.
A standard 7-speed manual transmission features a rear transaxle that enables even weight balance while the Active Rev MatchTM sensors simulate "heel-toe shifting". It also enhances the driving experience by matching engine speed to the desired gear for smooth shifting transitions. The available 8-speed paddle shift offers the smooth control of an automatic but with quick, precise shifts and manual mode for track driving.
Mode Selector allows drivers to tailor virtually every aspect of their Corvette based on road conditions and their driving preferences. With the turn of a dial, five distinct driver modes electronically calibrate up to 12 variables, optimising everything from steering to throttle control for peak performance in every environment. Better still, the optional head-up display beams key data onto the windscreen, so you absorb it without taking your eyes off the blurring tarmac.
With available 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, the latest MyLink 8-inch diagonal screen, easy-to-use driver modes and an industry-exclusive Performance Data Recorder, this is the most technologically advanced Corvette to date 4.
Stingray keeps you connected and entertained with a retractable 8-inch diagonal Chevrolet MyLink colour touchscreen. Using steering wheel controls, hand gesture recognition and voice recognition capabilities, you can talk, text and stream music without taking your hands off the wheel.
The Stingray provides smarter, safer, more complete in-car use of your smartphone. Simply control everything using the cabin’s touch screen display. Compatibility is offered with both:
Another high-tech feature: the dual cameras mounted in the front bumper. These work together to project a birds-eye view of the car’s "nose" onto the touchscreen, helping you park perfectly every time.
Stingray features an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi connection that’s more powerful than your smartphone. Through OnStar®, this technology gives Stingray an incredibly reliable Wi-Fi connection. The powerful signal gives you and your passengers the ability to seamlessly connect up to seven smart devices to the Internet, giving you the freedom to roam while connected 4.
Stingray employs a host of safety technologies to help keep you safe before, during and after a possible collision, including an available head-up display that projects critical information onto your windshield so you can keep your eyes on the road.
You’re never alone with OnStar® Automatic Crash Response. Built-in sensors can automatically alert an OnStar® Advisor, who is immediately connected into your vehicle and can request emergency help be sent to your exact GPS location – even if you’re unable to respond. Standard for the first twelve months 4.
