2013 Chevrolet Corvette Owner's Manual
The Chevrolet Corvette Coupe is a rear-wheel drive ‘G1’ coupe. The world premiere of the seventh generation model took place at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2013.
The Americans claim that the Corvette Stingray is not just a new car, but an absolutely new one, which only has two details in common with the previous generation. It is difficult to judge about veracity of such statements but one should not be an expert to see the difference in design of the coupe. It is really seriously processed, but it still attracts looks and generates sharp desire to jump behind a rudder and drive with wind.
The Corvette Stingray by no means grazes the rear. It is based on a spatial aluminium construction with double wishbone suspensions front and rear, with transverse leaf springs and electronically controlled shock absorbers. At the same time, the engineers managed to achieve a weight distribution over the axles very close to the ideal 50:50. The bonnet, fenders, doors and some other body parts are made of composite materials. As a result, the Stingray is 45% lighter than its predecessor, while the body is 57% torsionally stiffer. And to make sure the coupe not only drives well, but also brakes effectively, it is equipped with 4-piston Brembo brakes with 320 mm discs at the front and 338 mm discs at the rear.
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe is powered by a 6.2-liter gasoline V8 engine with direct injection, half-cylinder deactivation and phase shifters on the intake and exhaust, producing 450 hp of power and 610 Nm of torque in US specification, and 466 hp (630 Nm) in European. As standard, the engine is paired with a seven-speed manual gearbox, equipped with a function to maintain revolutions (overdrive, in fact) when shifting. However, a 6-speed automatic transmission is also available as an option. Depending on the performance of the engine and gearbox, the Corvette will reach the first ‘hundred’ in either just under or just over four seconds.
