The all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray is the talk of the automotive world today after it was first officially unveiled to the public at a special event last night, and Gran Turismo 5 players will be the first to drive the car, finally free of its camouflage.
The Stingray will produce an estimated 450 horsepower and 450 ft. lbs. of torque, is capable of accelerating from 0-60 in less than four seconds and will achieve more than 1g in cornering grip. It will also be the most fuel efficient Corvette ever, exceeding the EPA estimated 26 mpg of the current model.
During the creation of the virtual Corvette Stingray, careful attention was paid to each detail of the new design inside and out, all the way down to the shift schedule for the 7-speed manual transmission.
“The Polyphony team has had an unforgettable experience getting to know the Corvette Stingray, inside and out, and bringing it into Gran Turismo 5,” said Kazunori Yamauchi. “We’re excited to share our experience with fans and let them feel, explore and drive the Corvette in a way that wasn’t possible until now.”
As reported in the press release, over half a million people have downloaded the camouflaged prototype version of the car since it was first revealed in the game last November.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray will be available as a free download from the PlayStation Store starting Tuesday, January 15, 2013.
