Chevrolet has released final technical specifications for the new Corvette Stingray.

Almost six months ago Chevrolet introduced the C7 Coupe which was followed in March by the Convertible variant. Up until now, technical (and final) specs of the car were not available but GM has disclosed the important information.

Both versions are powered by a 6.2-liter V8 LT1 engine which produces 455 HP (335 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 460 lb-ft (623 Nm) of torque at 4,600 rpm in the coupe. The convertible's (still) estimated figures stand at 450 HP (331 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 450 lb-ft (609 Nm) at 4,600 rpm. Power is transferred to wheels via an all-new seven-speed manual gearbox with Active Rev Match.

Both of them benefit from a 50:50 weight distribution and come with an Active Handling system featuring electronic stability control. Other highlights include tire pressure monitoring system with run-flat tires, four airbags and four-channel ABS.

The coupe and convertible share the exact same dimensions: 177 inches long, 73.9 inches wide and a 106.7 inches wheelbase. Headroom stands at 38 inches, legroom at 34 inches, shoulder room at 55 inches and hip room at 54 inches.

The best way to test drive these is to rent on when they arrive at the rental car companies.

Well it's definably not overpriced like many other cars within and above it's price range, if that's what you mean.

only if you have a couple other supercars in your garage, a lambo, a Veyron, then yes the Vette is close to junk.

You are right on the money, the cheap plastic vents on the hood instead of some high grade plastic, the speedometer display with the various data is an afterthought and the rev match manual trans w/ questionable quality (both the later a Nissan driver aids) to be desired. What is more of an Achilles heel of the previous generation is the dicey swinging tail which is still to be seen if they corrected with this model.
