Additionally, about half of the people opting for the Z51 performance package are also ticking the extra’s box for the Magnetic Ride Control suspension, with the all-new 7-speed manual transmission also being well-received by upcoming owners.
For those that didn’t know, the Z51 package costs an additional $2,800 and adds a selection of aerodynamic styling tweaks, and more importantly, an electronic limited-slip differential, dry-sump oiling system and a better cooling system. Consequently, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray when fitted with the Z51 performance pack can launch from a standstill to 60mph in just 3.8 seconds and complete the quarter mile in 12 seconds.
It can also pull 1.03g on the skid pad and earlier this year, managed to lap the Virginia International Raceway’s Grand Course in a brisk 2:51.78. That time makes it around seven seconds faster than the insane Chevrolet Camaro 1LE.
Under the hood, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray when fitted with the Z51 package features the same engine as the standard car. That means a 6.2-liter V8 engine delivering a total of 455hp and 460lb-ft of torque.
