First 2014 Corvette Stingray to be auctioned for charity image

The very first unit of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will be auctioned for charity at the Barrett-Jackson auction on January 19.

Following the same path as its main rival the SRT Viper, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray’s first unit will try to find a new owner during the 2013 Barrett-Jackson auction on the 19th of January. All funds raised from selling the sports car will be donated to the College for Creative Studies. The 2014 Corvette Stingray in question is expected to be sold for quite a few dollars considering the fact that the first SRT Viper has found a new owner who has paid 300,000 USD for the sports car back in 2012, during the same Barrett-Jackson auction.

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.
