Unveiled exactly a year ago, the 2014 Corvette Stingray is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine that delivers 455 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Fitted with Chevy’s new performance exhaust system, the Corvette Z51 boasts 460 HP and 465 lb-ft of torque, which enable it to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds.

The brand new sportscar can be ordered from $51,995 in the United States, including destination and handling.
