While many consider it blasphemy for a sports car to come with anything other than a manual transmission, Corvette owners year after year have professed their love for the six speed paddle shift autos. So it’s only fitting that we show the first pic of the 2014 Corvette Stingray’s interior with the automatic transmission and paddleshifters on the steering wheel.
The transmission’s shifter looks great on the center console. The gear selections are well marked on the side and the boot and shifter contain the premium materials we’ve heard so much of from the interior designers.
You can also see the paddleshift lever on the right side of the steering wheel.

The six speed automatic has undergone a transformation along with other components of the C7 Corvette. With the drive mode selector, the driver can customize many key areas of the Corvette’s driving experience including shift points and the shift comfort of the transmission.
C7 Corvette owners who opt for the automatic transmission will also get some of the goodies previously reserved only for manual tranny owners including Launch Control.
