Our friend Nick Saporito at GM Inside News uncovered something new about the new 2014 Corvette Stingray that we think is pretty cool. Like the latest Cadillac’s with their CUE infotainment center, when you fire up the new Stingray, you’ll hear an audio clip play. Well Nick and the gang at GMInsideNews.com has uncovered that audio clip.
As you know, the C7 Stingrays will come equipped with the next generation Chevrolet MyLink Infotainment system, which is based on Cadillac’s CUE system. When the system starts ups, graphics flash across the 8-inch high definition screen on the center stack as well as the driver’s information center. The audio clip lasts no more than six seconds and as it plays, it matches the animation on the screens.
The start up audio is a feature that GM has been adding to just about every vehicle utilizing the CUE-based system with each brand getting their own unique sound.
Nick says the version of the clip they have is labeled as Version 1.0 so there is a chance that it may change before retail production starts up in June.

The effect very much gives the car a futuristic feel and right off we are wondering if that audio clip could be customized.
All 2014 Corvette Stingrays come with the Chevy MyLink system as a standard option although if you want the NAV feature, be prepared to shell out an additional $795.
