Good news for European Corvette buyers! This morning, Chevrolet issued a press release announcing the pricing for the 2014 Corvette Stingray in Europe. The new seventh-generation Corvette will be available at dealerships across Europe this fall and pricing for the Coupe will start at €69,990.
Those Corvettes that will be sold in Europe will all feature the Z51 package which includes the enhanced aerodynamics for high-speed stability, electronic limited-slip differential and the dry sump oil system with differential and transmission cooling. The Z51 also includes the larger 19/20″ wheels, larger brakes and specific shocks springs and stabilizer bars.
The Corvette Stingrays will also come standard with the latest magnetic selective ride control and suspensions that are tuned for European roads. Performance traction management and the performance exhaust systems are also standard.
“Corvette has inspired millions across generations, and the new Stingray is no exception. The advancements in design, technology and engineering have given us a car that will define the decade and far exceed consumers’ expectations,” said Susan Docherty, President and Managing Director, Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe. “While the Corvette Stingray can compete with its rivals in terms of performance, it remains affordable. The Stingray is more than a car, it’s a statement of intent by drivers who want the pure exhilaration that’s tantamount with the name Corvette.”
The new Corvette Stingray will be powered by the 6.2L LT1 V8 coupled to a 7-Speed manual transmission with active rev matching. The engine provides 460 hp (343kW) and 630NM (465 lb-ft) of torque at 4,600 rpms with the performance exhaust, making it the most powerful standard Corvette ever.
Pricing for the new Corvette Stingray in Europe is slightly different depending on the country. While the €69,990 will get you a Corvette in Germany, Croatia and France. It’s slightly more at €70,990 in Italy and €79,990 in Spain. For the United Kingdom, the Corvette Stingray is priced at £61,495.
Pricing and availability of the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible for Europe will come at a later date. But it looks that Chevy is looking to rollout the drop top about three months after the coupe so Europe can probably expect to see them in early 2014.
