The Corvette Stingray Coupe Pacific Concept
For Left coast fans, Chevrolet’s designers created the Corvette Stingray Coupe Pacific Concept, a red-hot looking track-inspired ride in anyone’s book. This is a Z51-equipped Corvette Stingray Coupe with the LT1 V8 mated to a seven-speed transmission, dry sump oiling system and the transaxle features an electronic limited-slip differential.
The Corvette Stingray Coupe Pacific Concept features a Torch Red exterior complimented with a carbon fiber hood and visible carbon-fiber weave on the removable roof panel. Like the Atlantic Concept, the Pacific Concept comes outfitted with a carbon fiber trim kit with a front splitter and rocker extensions in black.
Like its right coast Atlantic Concept, the Pacific Concept Stingray Coupe is outfitted by a number of Chevrolet Accessories including the 19″ and 20″ black wheels with a red accent stripe.

The Corvette Stingray Gran Turismo Concept
Finally, the third Stingray pays homage to the video game that helped launch the seventh generation sports car. Before the Corvette Stingray was shown to the public in January, a camouflaged version of the car appeared in Gran Turismo 5, allowing Corvette fans the opportunity to drive the car online before it was launched a month later in Detroit.
Now for Gran Turismo 6 and just in time for the game’s 15th anniversary is a real life concept version of the video game car, complete with race inspired elements like yellow-tinted headlamps, a carbon fiber rear wing and a ground effects kit which comes with carbon fiber rockers and front splitter. The custom exterior also features a custom front grille, a racing-style tow hook and custom exhaust tips.
On the inside, you’ll find the Competition Sport racing seats with driver and passenger racing harnesses, a custom flat-bottom steering wheel and a leather wrapped safety belt bar and rear braces.
The Gran Turismo concept is powered by the 460 horsepower LT1 V8 engine and comes with a seven-speed transmission.
