2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Races C6 Corvette

While the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is underpowered compared to the previous range-topping Corvette C6 ZR1, let’s not forget that Chevrolet has only released the standard C7 Corvette thus far.

Consequently, the new car can only be fairly compared to a base sixth-generation Corvette and that’s exactly what the following video does. The C6 Corvette which is participating in these numerous rolling drag races features a modified intake and exhaust system and is fitted with the Z51 performance package.

By comparison, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is the most powerful base Chevrolet Corvette ever produced, with an estimated 450hp being produced for its new generation LT1 GM V8 engine. As a result, the new car surpasses the previous generation base C6 substantially in every performance aspect and is able to launch to 100km/h in under four seconds, pull over 1G when cornering and is able to stop from 100km/h in a similar time to the Z06 Corvette.

To top of the impressive engine powering the brand new Corvette, it also makes use of a seven-speed TREMEC manual transmission with Active Rev Matching. As its name suggests, the Active Rev Matching helps the driver perform the perfect up-shifts and own-shifts no matter their experience level.
