2014 Corvette Stingray Gains Optional Competition Sport Seats

“The differences in the Standard GT seat and the Competition Sport seat offered in the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette are similar to the everyday comfort of a well-tailored suit vs. the support offered by compression apparel athletes wear,” the company said in a statement.

The technology used in creating the new seats accurately measures driver bottom and back pressures during high velocity maneuvers and generates graphics illustrating how occupants are supported in the seat. In addition, the Competition Sport seats are also lighter than the standard ones, being built on an all-new lightweight cast magnesium frame.

“While most Corvette drivers will find the GT seat perfectly comfortable and supportive, those who go to a track will appreciate the extra support offered by the Sport seat,” said Ryan Vaughan, design manager, performance car interiors. “They’re both a testament to the enormous amount of work that went into them. These are the best seats Corvette has ever had.”
