At the same time Buick announced MSRPs for the 2014 LaCrosse in the States, across the pond, GM’s Chevrolet brand released prices for the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe. You can catch a glimpse of the starting prices for the seventh generation Corvette in a selection of European countries (not all were available at the time we wrote this piece) in the list below, but we’ll mention here that the coupe costs £61,495 (equal to US$96,000 / €71,700 at today’s exchange rates) in the UK, and €69,990 (US$93,700 / £60,000) in Germany. All European Corvette Stingrays will come fitted as standard with the Z51 package (worth $2,500 in the States) that includes a number of features such as an electronic limited-slip differential, aero package, larger wheels and brakes, and sportier suspension and steering system, plus the magnetic ride control suspension ($1,795), performance traction management and performance exhaust systems ($1,195). All of the aforementioned features and systems are optional in the States were the Corvette starts from $51,995 (€38,900 / £24,800). Thanks to the standard sports exhaust system that adds 5hp, the European Corvette Stingray’s 6.2-liter V8 engine is rated at 460hp (466PS) and at 6,000 rpm and 630Nm (465 lb-ft) of torque at 4,600 rpm. A standard 7-speed manual gearbox with active rev matching sends all those ponies to the rear wheels, with Chevrolet quoting a 0-60mph (96km/h) time of less than four seconds. European sales of the Corvette Stingray will begin in the fall of 2013.
