The all-new Corvette Stingray is both a revelation and a revolution. The first mid-engine version of the iconic American muscle car looks more like a Ferrari than a Corvette with power to match its European counterpart. 60% of the weight of the C8 is over the back wheels. This new model is ferocious off the line, aided by its quick shifting eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and a well calibrated launch control system, 60mph is reached in an eye watering 2.8 seconds.
This striking example presents well in Torch Red and a contrasting Jet Black interior. The dealer specified upgrades include black painted spoke alloy wheels, engine appearance package, painted brake calipers, large rear wing and carbon flash outside mirrors. The look is enhanced with a removable roof panel, LED headlights and daytime running lamps. The well-chosen specification complements the already high standard level of equipment. The list of features is exhaustive (a full specification is in the file) but includes, limited slip differential, traction control, rear view camera, rear park assist and power locks. The striking exterior looks are matched by a space age interior with cosseting power adjustable GT2 bucket seats, dual zone climate control, a state of the art infotainment touchscreen featuring Bluetooth streaming, Apple car play, voice recognition and heads up display. As if the staggering list of equipment wasn’t enough, this beautiful example is a Z51 version which includes performance brakes, suspension, exhaust, heavy duty cooling system and high performance run flat tyres.
All import duties have been paid on this super rare supercar and a UK V5C registration document has been applied for. This is an opportunity to purchase an extremely powerful and extremely rare Corvette.
