Rewriting the book – Introducing the 2014 Corvette

2014 Corvette Stingray C7 at Les Stanford ChevroletIn 1953, the Chevrolet introduced the Corvette to the public.  Though it did not make a big impression at first, this model would eventually become one of the most iconic cars in history.  The recently introduced seventh generation Corvette is no different; it is a worthy example of the car that purists often consider the only true American sports car.

For the 60 year anniversary of the Corvette, the engineers knew that they needed to come up with a special car.  They went to the drawing board to design a completely new car, with a unique style and performance matching or exceeding the Corvettes that came before it.

In January of 2013, the seventh generation Corvette was officially unveiled at the Detroit auto show.  The shape of the 2014 Corvette is somewhat reminiscent of the classic 1963-67 “Stingray”, with sharp curves and lines.  The performance of the 60th anniversary Corvette is astounding.  The all-aluminum frame of the car offers dramatically improved stiffness, resulting in better control on either the road or the racetrack.  The braking ability has been substantially upgraded as well with Brembo brakes featuring larger pads that cover 35% more of the brake disk.  The latest version of the Chevrolet LT1 engine delivers a generous 450 HP, ensuring that the stiffer chassis and better braking ability don’t go to waste.

In short, the 2014 Corvette may well be the best performing Corvette ever.  Reserve yours today with Les Stanford Chevrolet, the Corvette King!
