The ultimate blend of precision performance, ingenious design and innovative engineering becomes a reality in the 2015 Corvette Stingray Convertible. Its aggressive exterior and optimized driving experience make it a worth runner-up for the title ‘best sports car of 2015’. Available in both coupé and convertible – it is the fastest, most refined standard Corvette has ever made.
The coupé is light, low and lean thanks to the use of the lightweight carbon-nano-fiber components. State-of-the-art ventilation systems help air flow from front to back, cooling critical elements of the powertrain. Both the convertible and the coupé have the same level of optimal performance.
Every millimetre of the model is executed with beauty and proportion – from the frosted high-intensity headlamps to the new digital features and driver controls in the cockpit. In terms of design– the Stingray is defined by a sharper, more sinister shape that blends seamlessly sharp edges and soft curves.
Two 8-inch screens are complemented by a colour Head-Up Display. Throughout the interior only the highest quality materials are used – carbon fibre, aluminium, and grade A leather. The steering wheel is wrapped in natural leather or sueded microfiber for a better grip and enhanced driving experience. The instrumental panel is a true state-of-the-art innovation with critical data projected into the driver’s line of sight on the windshield via a Head-Up Display. The driver’s seat is built with maximum comfort in mind and provides optimal support.
The Stingray has another impressive feature – the world’s fastest-acting suspension patented Magnetic Ride Control system adjusts to the road every 15 milliseconds, providing unmatched security and comfort in all weather conditions. The 6.2V LT1 V8 engine boasts the staggering 460 horsepower, achieving a 0-60 time in 3.8 seconds. Its distinctive rear transaxle layout provides optimal weight balance.
As evidenced by the high level of precision and engineering that has gone into the Stingray – it is a car made to serve the driver. Lighter materials and innovative technology create a machine that is perfectly in sync with the road and every human input. Prices for both models start at around $60,000.
