Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, Special Emotion

The Cavauto Group, only official dealer in Italy, offers the super sports Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible

by Francesco Michienzi

The Corvette Stingray is the evolution of Chevrolet’s legendary super sports car. We had the pleasure of testing it on different types of roads.

The Corvette’s cockpit presents the perfect combination of comfort and sportiness, and there is no lack of fine materials, such as different types of leather for the seats and carbon finishes.

While sitting behind the wheel of this car you are enveloped in pure thrill as you shoot from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in just 3.5 seconds for a top speed of 296 km/h, an emotional rush that no words can describe, as they could only partly convey what it feels like to drive a lightning bolt.

The exterior design emphasises the aerodynamic spirit of this concentrate of technology. The Stingray roars loudly as soon as it is powered up. Its sound is the first great thrill we feel and it comes from the engine which is placed exactly behind our head.

The naturally aspirated engine is a 6.2L V8 LT2 VVT with Active Fuel Management, capable of delivering 475 horsepower at 6,450 rpm and 613 Nm of maximum torque at 4,500 rpm. It is the first mid-rear-engined model in Chevrolet’s 69-year history.

Weight distribution is optimal, with a 40/60 balance between front and rear. Suspensions are equipped with Magnetic Ride Control.

Thanks to the Tremec eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which can change gears in less than 100 milliseconds without losing torque, it guarantees exhilarating performance.
