New-gen Corvette Stingray to be available at top dealerships only image

The new generation of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will only become available at top dealerships only.

General Motors will only deliver cars from the new generation of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray to only 900 of its 3, 000-plus dealers because these are the only ones eligible to sell the sports car. Besides having the “privilege” to sell the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, dealerships will also have to send a sales person to a training session in Nevada, which will cost them 2,000 USD. The selected dealerships will begin accepting orders in the next few weeks and the first Corvettes will be delivered this summer.

As a quick reminder, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was unveiled back in January, during the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. The model is powered by the LT1 6.2 liter V8 engine, coming with CVVT and direct injection and producing a total output of 450 HP (336 kW) and 450 lb-ft of torque (609 Nm). This is enough to allow the model to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds. The first unit of the Corvette Stingray has been auctioned for charity and its owner has paid no less than 1.1 million USD for it.
