A great deal of technology has gone into developing the 2014 Corvette Stingray, but it’s nice to see that GM has not forgot the fundamentals when it comes to building a practical sports coupe, and that’s giving the car three pedals and a shift stick. It’s all very well having paddles on the steering wheel to make fast gear changes, but having a vehicle with these paddles makes me feel as though the driver loses the ability to truly drive a car.
Okay, so we know that just sticking with a simple principle has already made the C7 that much better than some of its rivals, but the 2014 Corvette Stingray has also had to take some technology from the race track and bring it to the street — It’s as if that line was taken from a Fast and Furious movie.
The first video you see below helps to explain the technology used, as it’s all about the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray driving experience. From the moment you watch the video you can’t help fall in love with the sweet sound of that engine. We love how we are told that the car is doing exactly what you want it to do, which is thanks to its clever electronics system.
It’s not all about what’s under the skin, as the aerodynamics also plays such an important part, and if you watch F1 you will know just what I mean. The second video looks closely at the 2014 Corvette Stingray aerodynamics, and you will not be shocked to learn that the team of aerodynamicists they had working on the C7 has done so for the past three years.
Finally, we thought you would want to see how a 2014 Chevy Corvette C7 Stingray drifting with some awesome footage, although this has been taken from Gran Turismo 5. Okay, it’s not the real deal, but does give you more of an incentive to try it for real, once you take possession of yours that is.
