THE 2015 CORVETTE STINGRAY

ENGINEERED TO LEAVE NOTHING BEYOND YOUR CONTROL

STINGRAY IS THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF PRECISION PERFORMANCE, INGENIOUS DESIGN AND BRILLIANT ENGINEERING.

With its aggressively sculpted exterior and driver-oriented cockpit, the 2015 Stingray sports car is a beautiful combination of brilliant engineering and purpose-driven design that's available in both coupe and convertible. From lightweight, carbon-nano-fiber components to a 460-horsepower V8 engine with available performance exhaust, every element of the 2015 Stingray makes it the quickest, most powerful, most refined standard Corvette ever made

EXTERIOR

Coupe

Provocative design meets race-proven technology, making Stingray coupe low, light and lean. Impressive downforce keeps the vehicle planted while functional exterior vents help reduce lift and minimize drag. These advanced ventilation systems also help air flow from front to back, cooling critical components of the perfectly balanced powertrain.

Convertible

Convertible delivers the same optimal performance as coupe. The top is fully electronic and can be lowered remotely using the fob or at speeds up to 48 kph—without the need for mechanical latches. With the top up, a thick, three-ply design ensures maximum sound absorption for a quiet cabin. And, when you decide to put the top down, it hides seamlessly beneath a body-colored tonneau cover.

Hood air extractor

A functional hood air extractor directs air from the front grille up through the forward-tilted radiator and out of the engine compartment. Each blade is precisely angled for optimal airflow. The result is reduced front-end lift, increased downforce and improved handling at high speeds.

Brake cooling

The available Z51 Performance Package includes dual brake ducts that transport air from the front grille through the wheel wells to effectively cool the front brakes and expel heat. This efficient airflow controls temperature, reduces brake fade and optimizes stopping performance.


Powertrain cooling

Dual rear quarter panel intake vents, also included with the Z51 Performance Package, guide airflow to cool two separate heat exchangers. One routes air to the transmission oil cooler. The other cools the rear differential. Hot air escapes through tailored rear taillamp vents and lower-rear fascia outlets. This system was adapted from Corvette Racing to reduce temperatures during high-performance driving.

“It's a beautiful weapon" Tom Peters, Design Director

Headlamps

Frosted indirect high-intensity discharge headlamps are the eyes to the technological soul of the Stingray, emanating crisp color, brightness and efficiency. The new elements bear a sharper, more sinister shape, framed by edge-lit amber LED turn signals and black chrome housing. Bi-Xenon HID technology achieves high and low beams with a single light engine.

Taillamps

Signature four-element taillamps bear a new angular shape and recede elegantly into three-dimensional sculpted lenses. Concealed indirect LED lamps cast light into a reverse reflector to achieve crisp and even luminescence. A high-mounted stoplamp crowns the rear decklid. It's design that doesn't look back.

Every line matters

Executed with beauty and proportion, every millimeter of Stingray serves a purpose. Geometric shapes transition smoothly from soft curve to crisp edge.

Convertible

Convertible delivers the same optimal performance as coupe. The top is fully electronic and can be lowered remotely using the fob or at speeds up to 48 kph—without the need for mechanical latches. With the top up, a thick, three-ply design ensures maximum sound absorption for a quiet cabin. And, when you decide to put the top down, it hides seamlessly beneath a body-colored tonneau cover.

An available Competition Sport seat builds on the same lightweight frame. This seat provides maximum support for cornering, with more pronounced side bolsters designed for high-performance driving on the track. Upgrade with available sueded-microfiber seat inserts, gearshift and steering wheel.


Honor the craft

Performance driving is experienced from the interior, so perfection is critical. Every line, every stitch and every accent must honor craftsmanship —and serve the driver.

ENGINEERING

Every gram earns its way onto the car

Lean materials and efficient new processes forge the light, stiff Stingray space frame, which helps achieve 50-50 weight distribution and impressive power-to-weight ratio. One-third the weight of steel, aluminum improves rigidity, which in turn enhances cornering and handling. Lightweight carbon-nano-composite underbody panels bond to aluminum, further reducing weight for more precise driver control. This revolutionary chassis improves torsional rigidity, reducing noise and elevating performance to an art.

Coupe and convertible as one


Stingray coupe and convertible share an identical rigid aluminum frame structure. Originally designed as an open-top sports car, no reinforcements were required to create the convertible. No matter which body style you choose, Stingray remains a pure, precision-born machine.

Bowling Green Assembly

Every 2015 Corvette Stingray is built by experienced craftsmen using state-of-the-art processes refined at our Bowling Green Assembly plant.


Lighter frame

One-third the weight of steel, the Stingray aluminum space frame is 45 kilograms lighter than its predecessor.

Aluminum segments

Segmented aluminum rails — varying in thickness from 2 mm to 11 mm — enable tailored gauge, shape and strength properties with minimal weight.


Stiffer than steel

The all-aluminum Stingray space frame assembly, used on both coupe and convertible, is also 57% stiffer than the steel frame of the previous generation Stingray


Machined for precision

The lightweight aluminum space frame and completely reengineered powertrain demanded a shift in mind-set and an evolutionary approach to precision engineering.

Fastest-acting suspension

Stingray incorporates the world's fastest-acting suspension. Magnetic Ride Control™ is an available real-time damping system that “reads" the road every millisecond and can adjust in under 15 milliseconds. Available on the Z51 Performance and Handling Package, Magnetic Ride Control includes Performance Traction Management, which features five settings tailored to driver skill level and track conditions.

Powertrain

Completely redesigned, the 6.2L V8 engine boasts up to an estimated 460 horsepower† and an available 630N.m. of torque†, plus it achieves a 0-100 time of 3.8 seconds†. A distinctive rear transaxle layout achieves optimal weight balance. A trio of innovative technologies rarely seen in any elite sports car achieves revolutionary power and fuel efficiency†. Compact engine design lowers the hoodline and vehicle center of gravity. And a dry-sump oil system, available with the Z51 Performance Package,delivers through high g-force cornering.

Choice of transmissions

A 7-speed manual transmission complements the V8 powerhouse that propels Stingray. The rear transaxle location enables a 50/50 vehicle weight balance. Intelligent sensors enhance the driving experience by simulating heel-toe shifting perfection at the touch of a switch. Active Rev Matching anticipates gear selections and matches engine speed for smooth transitions during both upshifts and downshifts. An available all-new 8-speed paddle-shift automatic offers smooth control with quick and precise shifts and manual mode for higher level of driver control. The 8-speed automatic delivers dual-clutch performance without sacrificing performance




Direct Injection

A key performance technology, Direct Injection delivers fuel directly into the combustion chamber to achieve maximum thermal and combustion efficiency. More than 6 million hours of computational analysis went into developing the combustion system alone. The result is an impressive 11.5:1 compression ratio that increases torque, power and fuel efficiency†.




Variable Valve Timing

Variable Valve Timing optimizes camshaft timing to improve high-rpm horsepower and low-end torque. An intelligent position sensor detects engine operating conditions and adjusts the timing of intake and exhaust valves. The result is increased power or torque when needed, enhancing performance and bolstering fuel economy† when combined with Active Fuel Management™.


Active Fuel Management

Designed for peak power when you need it and fuel efficiency when you don't, Active Fuel Management (AFM) deactivates four cylinders when cruising at consistent speeds and offers all eight cylinders with one touch of the accelerator. AFM is utilized or disabled at the driver's discretion. Labor reduces. Fuel economy improves†.

The driver notices peak performance, and nothing else.

DRIVING EXPERIENCE

Trust the machine

The 2015 Corvette Stingray is engineered to serve the driver. Lighter materials and ingenious technology coalesce to create a precision instrument that reacts perfectly to every human input. Put simply: Stingray does exactly what you tell it to, and does it extremely well.
