The very first unit of the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has recently found a new owner during the Barrett-Jackson auction for 1.1 million USD.

After announcing that the very first unit of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson, GM has placed the model into the spotlights once again, this time by telling us that the sports car has managed to find a new owner who has paid no little than 1.1 million USD, which is basically more than 10 times the official starting price. The first owner of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has also won a 1968 Owens/Corning L88 Corvette race car during an auction, after bidding 1M USD.

As a quick reminder, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is coming with a prominent rear spoiler, with a removable roof, with a ventilated hood, with HID headlights with LEDs, premium leather upholstery and more. Power to the model is being provided by the LT1 6.2 liter V8 engine, with CVVT (continuously variable valve timing) and direct injection, which is producing a total output of 450 BHP (336 kW) and it has a peak torque of 609 Nm (450 lb-ft). The model will be able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds and return 26+ on the highway. More details on the new Corvette will be announced close to its launch.
