The 2014 Corvette Stingray Killed Steve Irwin
Since I am a highly revered auto journalist with several Poopitzer Prizes to my name makes my input on form and function sought after by all auto manufacturers. In this instance it seems that Chevrolet listened closely to every word I had to say when it came to the design of the next generation Corvette. The only issue is that a question still remains if the 2014 Corvette Stingray is worth its weight in wampum. For years this vehicle has been an icon all over the world for individuals that wanted a fire breathing budget badass. Being a vehicle that offered a large displacement engine up front while transferring it solely to the rear wheels gave the so-called everyman a chance to taste the speed and power of an exotic car and the ability to do some wicked doughnuts.
My only complaint with the Corvette was with the fact that it seemed to lack quality pieces at times such as the materials used in the overall interior design. It seems that the designers put together a powerful vehicle and when it came time to finish the interior, they simply walked over to the truck line and used as many plastic pieces as possible. Honestly this wasn’t so bad due to the fact that this car was built with the sole purpose of putting a smile on the driver’s face and not caressing his ass. Fortunately with the new seventh generation 2014 Corvette, we see that more interest and detail was placed in giving the vehicle an interior that mimics the quality and design of vehicles with a much higher price tag and the introduction of new seats that hug the drivers’ derrière.
As for the powertrain of the new generation 2014 Corvette Stingray we hear the Chevrolet’s engineers and designers whispering some sensual specs in our ear balls. A claimed 455 hp will be the introductory motor option and should help the vehicle accelerate from 0 to 60 in under 4 seconds. With a starting price tag just over $50,000 and a sub 4 second 0 to 60 time should be the only thing out of the car salesman’s mouth in order to sell this beautiful vehicle. If this is the statistics for the base model and I can’t wait to start seeing special editions coming out later on.
Honestly in my opinion I believe this new 2014 Corvette Stingray is staggeringly beautiful and looks more Italian than anything else. I personally am not a fan of the rear end of the vehicle, but who gives a shit as the only people that will see it are the losers that you’re passing. In conclusion I’m happy to see such a beautiful work of art rolling out of that Kentucky plant and onto the streets in which it was bread for.
