2019 Corvette Stingray | 2018 Central Florida Auto Show

This is a 2019 Corvette Stingray that will be used as the pace car for the 2019 12 Hours of Sebring, and I saw it at the 2018 Central Florida Auto Show. This is from the C7 series, which has been in production since June of 2013 (the first model year was 2014). The engine is the LT1, which is a 6.2 liter V8 that produces 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque. The transmission of this one is an 8-speed automatic, but it can also come with a 7-speed manual. This car does 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds and tops out at 195 mph. The starting price of the Corvette Stingray is $55,495.
