2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51: Variable Redline at Startup

April 9, 2014

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51

The last time we saw a variable redline on an Edmunds long-term test car was in our 2009 BMW M3 Sedan. On startup, the tachometer in our 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray starts with a "yellowline" from 3,500-4,500 rpm, with the redline above that. As the engine warms up (as in this photo), the yellow creeps up and eventually disappears leaving the hard redline at 6,500 rpm.

Besides the aforementioned BMW, are there other similar systems out there?
