2014 Corvette Stingray Comes to Gran Turismo 5: New Screenshots & Video Released

January 14th, 2013 by Jordan Greer

Song: The M Machine – Immigrants

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.

    I’ll be starting a C7 room as soon as it comes out on the PS Store and I download it, just like I did for the C7 Prototype.

  2. Jan. 14, 6:37pm

    Sweet car! <3

  3. Jan. 14, 6:27pm

    Here’s hoping we get nice cockpit views during replays. In car replay views like the Roadster TC are the best!

    I have the c7 prototype, it will be nice to drive the c7 without the camo, but I wounded will the c7 stock be as good as the prototype at drifting?

    This is awsome I get the new Corvette for my BDay!! I was afraid the new model wouldn’t look good, but I actually like it!

    • Jan. 14, 11:29pm

      i felt the same thing :D but my birthday is not on Tuesday

  7. Jan. 14, 4:50pm

    Wow i really ike it. And for free too.

  8. Jan. 14, 4:39pm
    Mehdi GT

    Very biutifule
    Is the free?

  9. Jan. 14, 4:08pm

    Okay, how many C7 rooms will we see today?

    • Jan. 14, 4:46pm

      None, it’s not out yet!

    • Jan. 14, 4:48pm

      hopefully lots this car looks better then a supermodel

    • Jan. 14, 5:31pm

      Ill have mine in yellow with black wheels thank you.

  10. Jan. 14, 4:03pm

    Is it moddable now?

    • Jan. 14, 4:05pm

      Let me travel to the future and when I come back I´ll tell you…

    • Jan. 14, 4:10pm

      You could have just said no. lol

    • Jan. 14, 6:32pm

      Corvette Racing will debut the C7.R in 2014. I do hope we can at least make an RM model for now.

    • Jan. 15, 5:18am

      The chance of PDI actually making an RM for this car is highly unlikely. It’s nice to dream though.

  11. Jan. 14, 4:01pm

    Many of the showroom pictures have been taken at exactly the same angle as the pictures of the cloaked version. this allows a good view on how the cloak actually cloaks the lines and details of the car. It also shows that the cloaked car has been given a bit more ground clearance.

    • Jan. 14, 4:03pm

      OK, not ‘many’ of the pictures… Three of them. But stil… :)

  12. Jan. 14, 4:00pm

    Seriously that car is just sexy. Also I think the 7th gear is to help with fuel economy.

  13. Jan. 14, 3:59pm

    wow… new vette getting all attention after total recon… but the viper, pff leaves it in the dust (i know, theyre mean people, but ill always love you)

    R18 E-TRON!!!! NOW!!!!

    • Jan. 14, 11:09pm

      Haters are going to hate! This is an excellent car, face the facts!

  14. Jan. 14, 3:53pm


  15. Jan. 14, 3:35pm

    It looks like they took a Viper, GT-R, 599, and a Camaro and stuck them all together.

    • Jan. 14, 7:38pm

      Totally agree, with a troll grin on the front. They also seemed to have glued a bunch of whimsical pieces of plastic and frilly bits all over it.

  16. Jan. 14, 3:19pm

    I could mistook it for a Camaro from behind. Anyone else?

    • Jan. 14, 3:28pm
      HKS racer

      Yep, same here.

    • Jan. 14, 3:31pm


  17. Jan. 14, 3:11pm

    That’s a sweet looking hot rod!

  18. Jan. 14, 3:10pm

    Hyuiara next?

  19. Jan. 14, 2:35pm

    7speed manual?? How am I gonna shift in 7th with my G27 now!?!?

    • Jan. 14, 2:47pm

      Wait, so it’s actually a 7 speed stick shift? That’s kind of wierd. I thought it was an sequential gear box or something.

    • Jan. 14, 2:51pm

      Oh my god! This is the most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen! http://www.corvettenewsblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/chevrolet_corvette_shifter_ns_92311_717.jpg Honestly, I don’t even think this is necessary. The last two gears are probably useless.

      So the Amuse S2000 now makes sense since it has a 7 speed manual stick shift when you upgrade the transmission!

    • Jan. 14, 3:00pm

      The 911 has a 7speed manual as well

    • Jan. 14, 3:38pm

      Unless if you’re trying to go for top speed or riding on tracks with longs stretches like Circuit de la Sarthe I don’t think you’ll need the 7th gear that much.

    • Jan. 14, 5:14pm

      I’ve always thought that the number of gears doesn’t matter. It’s how they are set up. See how the old AMG’s like the SL55 and SL65 in the game reach above 200mph with that heavy old 5 gear auto transmission. That’s why I love those big Mercs for top speed runs.

      Corvettes and Vipers with the old 6 speed Tremec T56 barely reach 185 and they have more power as the big AMG’s. Their 5th gear is too short and the 6th is too long.

      So I’m still confused of why a manufacturer will choose to have so many gears in a manual transmission.

    • Jan. 14, 6:05pm

      yeah, probably need it only for endurance races

    • Jan. 14, 6:25pm

      The Lexus ISF is an 8 speed, not sure if it’s stick of paddles though.

    • Jan. 14, 10:49pm

      IS-F is automatic. The standard Skyline GT-8 has an 8 speed too, and logically it is auto.

      What’s strange about the Corvette is not the fact that it has 7 gears, it’s the fact that they are in a fully manual “H” pattern shifter.

  20. Jan. 14, 2:30pm

    Gangsta thanks Kaz your the man!

    • Jan. 14, 2:31pm

      Oh yeah thanks Chevy and Sony to!!!

  21. Jan. 14, 2:23pm

    Nice car!!! Thanks PD for this free car!!!! Hope more cars and tracks come until GT6!!! :)

  22. Jan. 14, 2:12pm

    The car is absolutely beautiful. I will need to get used to the tail lights, but it’s not a big deal. I just hope to see some new surprises that come in hand with the new Vette.

    And this will be for free? I never expected that! And to think I was saving a couple of bucks for this car. Thanks PD.

  23. Jan. 14, 2:10pm

    is the test prototype going to stay in the game?

    • Jan. 14, 3:59pm

      Yes, of course. As every other car. Weird question.

  24. Jan. 14, 2:06pm

    And PD delivers! They are giving us “little drops” of work like telling us “WE ARE WORKING…ON GRAN TURISMO 6!”

  25. Jan. 14, 1:48pm

    Looks like a 599 from the side

  26. Jan. 14, 1:30pm

    Oh yes!!!

    According to the UK PlayStation Blog, the car will be released at January 15th, around 8.00pm GMT. I guess the update will be around 8pm GMT.

  29. Jan. 14, 12:37pm

    The back is completely hideous. GM’s design team must be taking LSD. It looks far more like a Camaro than a Vette.

    Why GM, just Why????

    • Jan. 14, 12:49pm

      If intoxicants were used in the design process, I would like the new Vette more…haha.

  30. Jan. 14, 12:35pm

    Side profile of this car looks amazing.

  31. Jan. 14, 12:35pm
    Fire Yoshi

    I’m liking this new ‘Vette! Will this replace the cloaked version of the car?

  32. Jan. 14, 12:27pm

    me likey

  33. Jan. 14, 12:26pm

    Looks boring as hell, circuit with no environment whatsoever and no braking points.

    • Jan. 14, 12:26pm

      I mean the Willow Springs circuit.

    • Jan. 14, 3:03pm

      Look up video of American Touge with Tsuchiya doing a time attack in the Mine’s R34. Then see you still dislike the circuit.

  34. Jan. 14, 12:04pm

    Thanks PD! will break it in at the Nur tomorrow.

  35. Jan. 14, 11:59am

    Beatuiful video. I wish they played it during the unviel like SRT did with Forza. It’s almost poetic now: GT5 and the new Vette vs Forza with the SRT Viper. But I still would like to see the Viper in GT5… :(
    Tomorrow is going to be a nice day with the C7 for GT5 and a free DLC for Far Cry 3.

  36. Jan. 14, 11:55am

    Finally, a new Ferrari!

    • Jan. 14, 11:57am

      wut??? lol

  37. Jan. 14, 11:54am

    still waiting on shelby GT500, camaro zl1, and maybe and acura TL type-s

  38. Jan. 14, 11:50am

    I wonder if while PD was behind the scenes with Chevy to get pics, measurements, etc. for the C7, did they manage to do the same for the Camaro ZL1. May as well since they were there.

  39. Jan. 14, 11:45am

    AWESOME!!! Can’t wait!

  40. Jan. 14, 11:42am

    Yes! Looking forward to breaking it in and trying to see what she can do in the 1/4. Who’s gonna get treed in posting a time first?

  41. Jan. 14, 11:41am

    Back to picture #20 anyone know what track it is, or what the big back of sign/solar panel looking thing in the sky is from at top of picture.

    • Jan. 14, 12:18pm


  42. Jan. 14, 11:33am

    Honestly the car looks uninteresting.

  43. Jan. 14, 11:33am

    Damn i think It’s infenion Raceway !!!!
    My favourite Track!

    • Jan. 14, 12:01pm

      I doubt that’s Infineon Raceway, perhaps another course. I don’t remember any part of Infineon where you would round such a hair pin and still be able to view that much course from any replay angle. I could be wrong as I am going off memory and seeing the track constantly in FM4. Also I’m pretty sure it’s not one of the courses already available in the game, a new course that is being prepped for the next game could be any course.

    • Jan. 14, 1:34pm

      SavageEvil, only track i can remember right now with such a hairpin would be the one in Willow Springs, and i think it´s been seen in the video.

  44. Jan. 14, 11:33am

    Nobody is saying… but, it could be nice to have a new full Corvette Racing suit for our sim.

  45. Jan. 14, 11:28am

    Infineon Raceway at 0:47? My wallet is ready

  46. Jan. 14, 11:27am


  47. Jan. 14, 11:20am

    My guess for picture #20 at first was Cape Ring, but now I think it could be Nurburgring.

  48. Jan. 14, 11:17am

    Very cool that PD got in on this. I’ll have to pop GT5 in tomorrow.

    • Jan. 14, 11:55am

      what is this popping in you speak of? Such should have never been popped out!

    • Jan. 14, 3:57pm

      Lambob, your comment made me laugh to tears… Not what you say, but how you say it seems to strum my laugh strings.

  50. Jan. 14, 11:12am

    …Help me out? Counting the above pictures from the top right to left and down to picture #20, what track is it?

    • Jan. 14, 11:27am

      Nurburgring GP/F. Bottom left corner of track map, the straight before the hairpin.

  51. Jan. 14, 11:04am

    Good job Sony on that video. Music was really good! Definitely gets me in a hyped up mood.

  52. Jan. 14, 11:01am

    F**K! Can’t download it coz my Playstation Store doesn’t work anymore!

  53. Jan. 14, 10:51am

    Reports of the death of GT5 are premature. If this is a forerunner of possible innovations to come, we could be in for some very unique driving experiences in this game. Other manufacturers are going to want to get on board with this type of hype for their new cars. This is a very smart marketing tool to the younger(35-55) moneyed people who are the prime demographic for the next generation of sport performance cars. And those teen and 20’s who play the game will be wanting these cars when they grow up and get rich. It’s all about business and that isn’t bad, because we get to enjoy the game while they advertise and make money. (expanded business venture for PD and Sony)

    • Jan. 14, 11:50am

      I was just saying to myself that this game should be used more as a marketing tool than what it has been, and what GM is doing with the new Vette is a step in the right direction. I’m not sure if I agree with your views on demographics; but from an advertising standpoint, giving out free cars to build a stronger customer base is a no-brainer. Ford, Fiat, and the rest need to jump on the bandwagon.

  54. Jan. 14, 10:50am


    • Jan. 14, 11:03am

      Why are you so ungrateful over this!? Geez the many things PD gave us due to our forums man! We requested NASCAR for GT5 then caz agreed and then he did it!

    • Jan. 14, 12:03pm

      ahh, brings back memories at the roller derby

  55. Jan. 14, 10:48am

      Longer exposure settings would be great.

  56. Jan. 14, 10:45am

    Fantastic car, Fantastic trailer! Way to go GM/PD!

  57. Jan. 14, 10:38am

    Beautiful looking car, look forward to trying it.

  58. Jan. 14, 10:35am

    I say it with Stevie Wonder: Isn’t She Lovelyyyy…

  59. Jan. 14, 10:34am

    That was a badass trailer for the Vette C7 Stingray. Congrats to both PD and GM. I can’t wait to test drive the C7. Hyped. Oh, and was there a new track in that video too? SUPER HYPED!!! :D

  60. Jan. 14, 10:33am

    Helicopter on Route X?!?!?!?! Oooooh, I like I like ^_^

  61. Jan. 14, 10:18am

    Am I the only one who can view these videos on the mobile app? Running Ice Cream Sandwich on a Galaxy Note.

    • Jan. 14, 10:53am

      No I’m watching it from my Galaxy S3 on Jelly Bean 4.1.2 :)

    • Jan. 14, 11:44am

      Im on a Nexus 4 4.2 and it’s working with a bit of lag

  62. Jan. 14, 10:12am

    It most likely be the only chance I’ll get to drive this new Corvette. So thank you PD and GM.

  63. Jan. 14, 10:07am

    i wanted another gtr

    • Jan. 14, 10:30am

      I’m still waiting for an RM or TC Viper ACR… but that’s not probable. It just ain’t in PD’s pipeline. ;( But least it ain’t another Skyline… and I dig Skylines. However, an RM/TC R30 or R31 would be real nice.

      I’m sure folks have their favorites but we all can’t have it all… or can we? ;)

  64. Jan. 14, 10:00am

    Waaait a minute, how do I get 7th gear with a G27 gated shifter?

    • Jan. 14, 10:12am

      The same way you did with the other 7 gear cars in the game.

    • Jan. 14, 11:43am

      You obviously can’t do it with the stick, but just press one of the paddles in the unlikely case that you would want to use it. The seventh gear is, like it’s with the 991, an over-gear for achieving better fuel economy. You will reach the Stingrays top speed in sixth gear – I’m sure.

      And for the car – great looking and I can’t wait to drive it. Thanks PD and GM.

  65. Jan. 14, 10:00am

    I love that its free, but that scares me…..
    Last time i got a free vette, I couldnt tune it.

    • Jan. 14, 10:04am

      Because it was a concept car.

  66. Jan. 14, 9:58am

    Rather have some new GT500’s

  67. Jan. 14, 9:50am
    Mister Slow

    A free new car is always welcomed!! How about a premium vette from each generation??

  68. Jan. 14, 9:44am

    So, the million $ question..

    Who here knew the maintenance was too obvious to be a coincidence?

    • Jan. 14, 11:40am

      I did. Every time they say maintenance. There is usually a update or something.

  69. Jan. 14, 9:36am

    Willow Springs Motorsports Park @1.40…

    • Jan. 14, 9:43am

      good eye dude I just noticed it too

    • Jan. 14, 9:53am

      Oh really?!? I hope that happens one of these days! I enjoyed the track on NFS SHIFT 1&2. I think the clip in the video where the car is sitting in the chicanes at Lemans is absolutely stunning!! The more I look at this car the more I love it. I thought it was gonna look like crap but GM created one beauty of a beast!!

    • Jan. 14, 9:55am


  70. Jan. 14, 9:32am

    Thanks PD… Still giving us DLC… No complaints, just a lot of gratitude.

  71. Jan. 14, 9:31am

    It looks phantastic! I will do a photoshoot right when I’ll get it!

    • Jan. 14, 9:35am

      Same here…..I think I am going to pass out this is amazing. Thanks PD for still supporting your game and bringing us surprises as great as this.

    • Jan. 14, 11:12am

      ^ +1

  72. Jan. 14, 9:31am

    Yes she looks nice but I was more intrested in the tracks it was racing on!!!

    A Helicopter flypast on the RouteX test track to name but a few.

    Whats the track @47 and 1:44 seconds I thought it was either Laguna Seca or a course creator track on Toscana but Bathurst after the long downhill straight maybe?

    • Jan. 14, 11:07am

      1:44 is La Sarthe I think

    • Jan. 14, 3:20pm

      correction, La Sarthe is a couple of seconds later, sorry :-)

  73. Jan. 14, 9:25am


    • Jan. 14, 9:31am

      Oh really? Think I would take the Ferrari F12 over this Corvette any day of the week.

    • Jan. 14, 9:48am

      Let’s not get carried away. FM4 had over 200 DLC cars in 12 months-Lots of 2012/2013 models. This is a welcome addition no doubt to GT5. I’m in.

    • Jan. 14, 10:22am

      I’ve read that Turn 10 has outsourced when it comes to rendering cars, which is probably why it has a new DLC every month, I think it’s also highly likely that those dlc cars are already lined up way before they’re announced

    • Jan. 14, 11:49am

      -_- * people, When i said take that forza, i meant it like they got the viper, and we get the corvette. That’s great 200 dlc cars in forza but wait i dont play it. i play GT.

  74. Jan. 14, 9:24am

    For free… how many game developers would do that? PD are a rare company in a world of money grabbers

    Thank you very much

    • Jan. 14, 9:30am

      Quite a lot, actually. If you want a direct comparison, Forza gave away the new Viper and gives away a car in each DLC pack. They and PD are able to do that because they have links and promotional ties with them. Quit making out PD are some special company, they’re not.

    • Jan. 14, 10:15am

      Given the choice of one free car or a paid DLC of 10 cars, I would choose the paid Car Pack.

    • Jan. 14, 5:42pm

      Thank you Simon.

      Relax SimonK. I swear you become more irritable as the years go by :(

  75. Jan. 14, 9:22am

    That is so cool, you cna still tell it’s a corvette from the side but I really like the edgey new front. And thank goodness it’s going to be free, it’s a much cooler free download than the camo one. But here’s a question: If therer’s an online maintenence 8-10pm, presumably to add this, does that mean you’ll have to download it AFTER the maintenence?

  76. Jan. 14, 9:22am
    Dean J

    Not really a surprise, to me, but still a nice car.

  77. Jan. 14, 9:20am

    Wait, I though GT5 was a dead game? LOL.

    • Jan. 14, 6:11pm

      Yeah I know right. Unfortunately the ‘GT5 is dead’ crowd are like a stubborn rash that keeps on coming back. Sigh.

  78. Jan. 14, 9:18am

    PD are always Sneaky showing new Content in there Trailers Lol. :D

  79. Jan. 14, 9:16am

    Awesome :D

  80. Jan. 14, 9:14am

    Nice, ant wait

  81. Jan. 14, 9:05am

    I cant lie, the car looks hideous.

  82. Jan. 14, 9:02am

    what track is that around ‘0:45 and ‘2:05? Laguna seca? Looks to “dry” and “desert” for Laguna Seca…

    Great news BTW!

    • Jan. 14, 9:03am

      Willow Springs, I think. It’s certainly one of those deserty tracks, my first thought was Sonoma but i don’t think it matches.

    • Jan. 14, 9:16am

      nice ;)

    • Jan. 14, 10:38am

      Agreed @SimonK. I think that was Willow Springs. :)

  83. Jan. 14, 9:01am

    Amazing car, Forza Motorsport 4 has better selection of cars but GT got better car physic so this is good to see.

    • Jan. 14, 9:11am

      Why are you comparing?

    • Jan. 14, 9:11am

      P Dhas always been awsome at Trailers lol

    • Jan. 14, 9:14am

      I played it recently, no reason

  84. Jan. 14, 8:58am

    New it! Could tell this was on the cards

  85. Jan. 14, 8:58am


  86. Jan. 14, 8:55am

    Nice car.

  87. Jan. 14, 8:55am

    The first track in the video – seems like Laguna Seca but it isn’t.
    What is it?

    The fronts ok. The lights are very Viper. The back? Well… Not impressed. The classic circle lights have gone to be replaced by modified Camaro lights with the same horrible plastic black surrounds also found on the Viper. So yeah fronts nice but I don’t like the back. Roll on the 15th.

      The front is definitely Viper-ish. The headlights almost look like they were pulled right off a Viper. I think the back is okay though. I agree that the brake lights should be round, or at least somewhat rounded to stick with tradition. The back really does look like a Camaro though, and even resembles the new Malibus. But I think it has a pretty beefy look to it and I think it works. Should be fund to drive!
