2014 Corvette Stingray Premiere Edition unveiled

Chevrolet is celebrating 60 years of Corvette production by unveiling the 2014 Corvette Stingray Premiere Edition at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Based on the range-topping 3LT coupe, the Premiere Edition has a Laguna Blue Metallic exterior with a visible carbon fiber roof and a "carbon flash hood stinger stripe." The model is also equipped with Torque-style chrome wheels that have stingray logos in the center.

The Brownstone sueded microfiber interior comes nicely equipped with carbon fiber trim and an individually-numbered plaque. There's also "Stingray" branded sill plates and special floor mats.

Power is provided by a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine that produces 460 bhp (343 kW) and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque thanks to the performance exhaust system. It is connected to a seven-speed manual transmission that should enable the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds and run the quarter mile in 12 seconds flat.

The car has also been equipped with magnetic ride control and Z51 Performance Package that includes aerodynamic styling tweaks, an electronic limited-slip differential, a dry-sump oiling system and an upgraded cooling system. The cars will also come with a unique VIN sequence and a five-piece luggage set.

Production will be limited to 500 units and pricing should be announced shortly.
