You may not be in the midst of a midlife crisis, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t hastily pick-up that new ‘Vette you’ve had your eye on… And this one is free! As of tomorrow, the 2014 Corvette Stingray will be available as free DLC for Gran Turismo 5.
Officially unveiled yesterday at the North American International Auto Show, the Corvette Stingray’s finest details have been meticulously reproduced for Sony’s driving simulator. Associate product manager, Ken Chan, breaks down the digital reproduction below:
“During the creation of the virtual Corvette Stingray, careful attention was paid to the tiniest details of the new design inside and out, as well as to the enhanced performance and driving characteristics — right down to the shift schedule for the 7-speed manual transmission. The Corvette 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.”
MPG may not mean much for the Gran Turismo fans out there, but the horsepower and acceleration is sure to impress. Check out the spiffy new trailer below today and be sure to pick yourself up a new Corvette tomorrow.
