What sort of a passenger car is the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray? The answer to this question will lead us back to 1953 when the first Stingray took the American car market by storm with its technological brilliance. Fast forward to the present time, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is still going very strong. However classy it may be back then, the present model of the vehicle is right here with us now to show why the American automaker is the leader in making the classy yet technologically advanced passenger vehicles. Here is a brief look at the 2015 Corvette Stingray.
Talking about the interiors, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is fascinating as it features premium leather seats, beautiful dashboard, class apart steering wheel among other interior features. The car is classy from angles. It actually has adapted the modern technologies to go hand in hand with the changing times. However, a few plastic touches seemed quite bit too much though that can be overlooked.
The vehicle we test drove was mated with an 8 speed automatic transmission gearbox and while we expect the same from a classic sportscar, they can’t possibly have worked better than what we experienced performance wise. It’s a sports car after all. The automatic transmission can be termed as one of the smoothest that one can expect.
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray’s 6.2 litre engine is more than satisfying and helped immensely in taking our attention from some very tiny glitches we had. The engine produces a peak power of about 455 horsepower along with a 465 Nm of torque which is quite impressive and we must say, we loved driving this vehicle.
However, the price tag at which the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray comes can really be termed as the vehicle’s one downside. Standing at USD 82,000 this vehicle is very well on the higher side of price which might prove to be a big turnoff for the potential buyers.
Otherwise, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is simply amazing. Go for it, if you can afford it!
