DETROIT — Chevrolet says the official rules in a new Corvette giveaway do not reveal the official price of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, despite media reports to the contrary.

The rules in the "Race to Win a Corvette" sweepstakes peg the "approximate retail value" of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray at $71,860. The pricing of the redesigned Corvette is one of the most highly anticipated bits of information for the 2014 model year.

Michael Albano, a Chevrolet spokesman told Edmunds on Thursday that "the approximate retail value for the Race to Win a Corvette sweepstakes is just that: an approximate value of the grand prize, required for sweepstakes."

He said GM will announce pricing for the Corvette Stingray "later this spring."

The Corvette contest, which ends on August 12, features one grand prize with two elements: a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and a trip for two to Le Mans, France to attend the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans Race. The value of the trip is pegged at $10,750, according to contest rules.

Edmunds says: The estimate may not be the exact price of the new Corvette Stingray, but we're betting it's pretty darn close.

    This same thing happened when the Camaro was introduced. A contest rules put the value somewhere around $40,000. You can get a Camaro anywhere from 20somethingK into the 40s. There's no story here, but the question mark on the headline seems to indicate that anyway. That's a red flag that screams "I'm about to write something meaningless with no basis in fact but I'll turn it into a question so its legitimate anyway"
