Chevrolet Corvette Stingray costs £61,495Wed, 19 Jun 2013 00:00:00 -0700
The new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will cost £61.5k in the UK
The 2014 MY Corvette Stingray arrived at the Detroit Motor Show in January, and now it’s arriving in the UK.
The new Stingray comes with a 6.2 litre LT1 V8 offering a modest (for its size) 455bhp and 460ln/ft of torque, enough to get the Stingray to 60mph in under 4 seconds and, say Chevy, still offer ‘improved’ economy over the old model. In the real world, though, that probably means under 20mpg. The price is a pretty hefty £61,495 (US price – pre tax – is just £33k) but UK versions of the Stingray do get the Z51 Performance Pack as standard which includes an Aero pack, electronic limited slip diff, uprated suspension, performance gear ratios, bigger wheels (19″ front, 20″ rear) and bigger brakes.
On top of the list price for the Stingray Coupe you can also splash out on stuff like Metallic paint (£600), Tintcoat paint (£1000), SatNav (an extra £1450 would you believe? Use your phone instead) and Black Alloys (£550).
Despite promises from Chevrolet that they would be building RHD versions, you will only be able to get the Stingray – Coupe and Convertible – in LHD.
The new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe will arrive in the UK in the Autumn.
