The new generation of the Corvette Stingray will only be sold through the company’s top dealers, as a recent report is showing.
General Motors didn’t say anything official on this subject, but according to the guy at Automotive News, the 2014 Corvette Stingray will only be sold through the top Chevrolet dealers. This action has been taken after GM has asked the Chevy dealers to meet a sales-volume threshold in order to become eligible for selling the Corvette C7 and some of them have failed to sell the minimum number of the sports car last year.
As a quick reminder, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette has been unveiled last week during the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit in a world premiere. The sports car is getting a removable roof, Camaro-like taillights, HID headlights with LEDs, a ventilated hood, front fender vents, a prominent rear spoiler, leather upholstery and more. Power to the new Corvette is coming from the LT1 6.2 liter V8 engine with direct injection and CVVT, producing 450 BHP (336 kW) and 609 Nm of torque (450 lb-ft). The sports car can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds and it can return 26+ mpg on the highway.
