C7 Corvette Stingray launch

The newly designed Corvette Stingray is the talk of the town! The seventh generation of the classic car is sleeker, wider with an undeniable, "Oh Sh*T!" factor that transforms gawkers into groupies. It's no surprise that it was welcomed into the industry in rock star fashion with a short film, live guitar solo and cool light show as the C7 took center stage. The energy in the room was electric as the audience of executives, insiders, influencers and media welcomed the vehicle with a standing ovation

The redesigned Stingray, at an estimated 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque can blast from zero to 60 mph in less than four seconds and is touted by Chevrolet as the most fuel-efficient Corvette to date, exceeding the EPA-estimated 26 mpg of the current model.

According to Ed Welburn, GM vice president of global design,"We knew we couldn't use the Stingray name unless the new car truly lived up to the legacy, the result is a new Corvette Stingray that breaks from tradition, while remaining instantly recognizable as a Corvette the world over."
