WHY JUST GO FROM A TO B. WHEN IMAGINATION CAN TAKE YOU EVERYWHERE
The road. A simple path, really. And yet it’s come to mean so much more with a Corvette Stingray. Perhaps the real reason roads are special is that every road leads us to someplace we’re not — but could be. At Chevrolet, roads are our springboards. They challenge us, taunt us and guide us to create better, more exciting, more ingenious ways to move through life. Roads drive us to places we’ve never been before. And we’ll never stop seeking out new ones.
Precision It isn’t just a word. For the designers of the all-new Corvette Stingray, it was a mantra. Throwing off the constraints of tradition, our engineers started from scratch to build a revolutionary sports car with the performance prowess, aesthetic impact and fine craftsmanship worthy of the Corvette Stingray emblem.

EVERY GRAM EARNED ITS WAY ONTO THE CORVETTE STINGRAY
Influenced by Corvette Racing technology, the Corvette Stingray 2014 was designed to be an instrument of precision — and light, stiff materials make all the difference in a real sports car. Aluminum and carbon fiber contribute to a near 50/50 weight distribution and a world-class power-to-weight ratio for optimal handling and acceleration. The all-aluminum space frame structure is 57% stiffer and over 45kgs lighter than the steel-frame sixth-generation Corvette.
REVOLUTIONARY LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS
Stingray also makes judicious use of carbon fiber to further reduce weight and improve handling. A carbon-fiber removable roof panel, a carbon-fiber hood, as well as carbon-nano-composite body structures optimize weight balance and center of gravity.
ENGINEERED TO LEAVE NOTING BEYOND YOUR CONTROL
On its journey to reinventing a legend, Stingray underwent stringent performance trials. On the track at Road Atlanta, engine temperatures were pushed to the max during repeated hot laps. On the roads of the real world, camouflaged test prototypes blurred past onlookers to ensure the same performance outcomes. And in the lab, tilt-dyno testing simulated extreme driving conditions to test engine durability and resilience.
FOR ROADS THAT TWISTS, A SPORTS CAR FRAME THAT DOESN'T
A LIGHTER, MORE RIGID, MORE PRECISE SPORTS CAR
Methodically constructed to be the lightest and stiffest to date, the Corvette Stingray aluminum space frame employs an evolutionary approach to precision engineering. One-third the weight of steel, aluminum improves rigidity on this sports car, , which in turn enhances cornering and handling.

“The 2014 Corvette Stingray integrates more high-performance aerodynamic features than ever before, many taken directly from Corvette Racing,” says Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter. “The front grille and radiator flow paths reduce lift, improving vehicle stability at high speeds by keeping the car pressed to the pavement. In addition, functional vents increase track capability by channeling air to the brakes, as well as heat exchangers for the transmission and differential.”
HOOD AIR EXTRACTOR
This is no bottom breather. A functional hood extractor directs hot air from the front grille up through the forward-tilted radiator and out of the engine compartment. Each blade is precisely angled for optimal airflow. The result is reduced front-end lift, increased down force and improved handling at high speeds.
When Stingray is equipped with the available Z51 Performance Package, dual rear quarter panel intake vents guide airflow to cool two separate heat exchangers. One routes air to the transmission cooler. The other cools the rear differential. Hot air escapes through tailored rear tail amp vents and lower-rear fascia outlets. This system was adapted from Corvette Racing to reduce temperatures during high-performance driving.
The available Z51 Performance Package also includes dual brake ducts that transport air from the front grille through the wheel wells to effectively cool front brakes and expel heat. This efficient airflow controls temperature, reduces brake fade and optimizes stopping performance.
