Easily the most important car of the 2013 Detroit Motor Show, the new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is still making headlines. Looks like the dust is not going to settle on it any time soon. That’s because there are so many new things about the 7th generation Corvette that the more you learn about, the more fascinating it becomes.

So to give you a brief tour of the vehicle, here’s Tadge Juechter, executive chief engineer, giving you a complete walkaround, explaining the new and important features of the 2014 Corvette:


The new Corvette may have become a proper sports car now, but at its heart it is still a fire-breathing muscle car. So performance numbers matter: The LT1 V8 engine in this car makes 450 horsepower (335 kW) and 450 lb.-ft. of torque (610 Nm). It accelerates from 0-60 in less than four seconds and achieve more than 1g in cornering grip. It is expected to be the most fuel-efficient Chevrolet Corvette, exceeding the EPA-estimated 26 mpg of the previous model. OK, that last bit doesn’t really matter.
