If you’ve been drooling over the Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray since its unveiling earlier this year, then you’ll be happy to hear that GM has released the official order guide so you can start building the car of your dreams. Although it won’t be on select dealer lots until this summer, this guide will let you figure out all the details right now.
The guide, released on Corvette Blogger, indicates that there will be a base Stingray coupe model as well as a second model with the upgraded Z51 package. This will include things like 19″ front and 20″ rear wheels, a dry sump oil system, Electronic Limited Slip Differential, larger front brakes with black calipers, and an Aero Package to reduce lift for high-speed stability.
You’ll also be able to pick from three different trim levels that include an assortment of options like an upgraded Bose audio system, competition sport bucket seats, carbon fiber trim and half a dozen different wheels. This is all in addition to standard features like OnStar, a removable roof panel and SiriusXM Satellite radio.
There are performance details as well, but they’re not as detailed as the rest of the information in the guide. The Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray is rated at 0-60 in under 4 seconds with a note that it’s only a GM estimate. They also list a GM-estimated 450 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque, which we already knew, and indicate that the exact numbers won’t come out until closer to production.
One thing the guide does not include is any information on a drop-top version. This is information we likely won’t see until later this year, so if your dream version of the Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray involves the wind blowing through your hair, then you’ll have to wait a bit longer.
As for price, that’s another detail that is yet to be revealed. Expect to know how much the Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray will set you back sometime before the National Corvette Museum’s Bash event on April 25th.
