DETROIT - The precisely sculpted design of the all-new 2014 Corvette delivers more than just stunning good looks every line, vent, inlet and surface has been optimized for performance.
“The all-new Corvette integrates more high-performance aerodynamic features than ever before, many taken directly from Corvette Racing,” said Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer. “For example, the front grill and radiator flow paths reduce lift, improving vehicle stability at high speeds by keeping the car pressed to the pavement. In addition, functional vents increase track capability by channeling air to the brakes, as well as heat exchangers for the transmission and differential.”
To develop the aerodynamic package, engineers started with data gleaned from years of on-track, high-speed performance from the Corvette Racing program - the most successful program ever in the American Le Mans Series and the 2012 GT Class champion. These techniques were applied to the production car using some of the industry's most advanced computer-aided modeling programs to predict and track airflow over, under and through the new Corvette's body.
Its sculpted design excites in all the ways that a Corvette has for six decades, with elements carefully shaped in the wind tunnel to increase airflow potential and improve cooling for a system that is as efficient as possible, said Kirk Bennion, Corvette exterior design manager. It's said that form follows function, but in the case of the aerodynamic 2014 Corvette, form and function work cohesively to produce beautiful purpose. Chevrolet will introduce the 2014 Corvette on Sunday, January 13, 2013. For more information and video content, please visit www.one13thirteen.com.

Provocative, purposeful and sculpted for optimal efficiency.
Functional exterior vents are crafted to improve vehicle
cooling and aerodynamic performance. Frosted LED-
framed indirect high-intensity discharge headlamps bear
a sinister shape and emanate crisp color and brightness.
Angular four-element taillamps feature concealed LED
bulbs that cast light into a reverse reflector to achieve an
even glow. Design follows performance-driven function.
HONOR THE CRAFT. INTERIOR
An honest interior starts with authentic materials.
Available hand-selected Napa leather, genuine aluminum
and available carbon fiber adorn the interior of Stingray.
A hand-wrapped 360mm steering wheel and two competition
seating options improve vehicle responsiveness and driver
confidence. An intuitive electronic display cluster with
reconfigurable gauges provides multiple display modes.
Every detail serves the driver.
PRECISION NEVER RESTS. ENGINEERING
Lean materials and efficient new processes forge a frame
that is 45 kilograms lighter and 57% stiffer than its
predecessor. A revolutionary aluminum chassis with
Carbon-Nano Hybrid composite underbody panels improves
rigidity, reduces noise and elevates performance. A new
LTI 6.2L V8 boasts an estimated 450 horsepower and
450 lb.-ft. of torque to power this precision masterpiece
from 0 to 60 in under four seconds.
ROADS WILL SURRENDER. DRIVING
Confidence elevates the driving experience. An advanced
Driver Mode Selector transforms the driving experience
with the turn of a dial -- optimizing 12 performance
variables. From steering feel to throttle progression to the
configuration of two 8-inch LCD screens, the entire vehicle
is tailored to match the driver's preference. An available
Z51 Performance Package achieves full track capability;
available Magnetic Ride Control makes an aggressive chassis
ride comfortable, while available Electronic Limited Slip
Differential offers improved control and optimal traction.
