The 2014 Corvette Stingray C7 may feature a frame that is 99 pounds lighter than the C6 Corvette, but the total car actually weighs 90 pounds more than the C6.
It’s not all bad news though, as the gain in weight comes on some critical performance parts – direct injection, brakes, driveshafts, the clutch, the fuel tank, etc.
This just in… 2014 Corvette Stingray pricing has been announced.
The Corvette Coupe will start at $51,995
The Corvette Convertible starts at $56,995
