Is The 2016 Corvette Stingray The Sports Car of our Dreams?
Back in 2013, Chevrolet launched the C7 Corvette Stingray. From the start we were impressed with this Vette, compared to its predecessors. The C7 quickly became a world class high-performance American sports car. It’s power comes from a small-block 6.2 liter V8 (now called the LT1) with 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.
The beauty featured below is a 2016 Corvette Stingray, equipped with optional eight-speed automatic transmission instead of the standard seven-speed manual, along with the 3LT Package priced at a mere (cough, cough, $9,745). Other add-ons include the $995 carbon fiber package, Magnetic Ride Control, and the carbon fiber dual roof.
The C7 starts at a price of $51,400 (quite the bargain). But with the add-ons and other goodies, this Vette came out to a total of $78,195. We’d say that’s a solid deal compared to its competitor, the Porsche 911, which starts at around $80,000. This Stingray might just be the American sports car of our dreams.
