2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Collector's Edition?
June 24, 2014
Is our 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray destined to cross the auction block in 50 years as a serious collector's edition?
Let's break it down.
- First year of the new body style.
- Low VIN (#23).
- Low VIN etched on Museum Delivery Plaque.
- Right options: Manual trans, magnetic shocks, adjustable exhaust, black wheels.
And, finally, it's painted Lime Rock Green. Not only is this the best color available for the 2014 Corvette, but it's been discontinued for 2015. That's right, those of you hoping and saving and praying for a Lime Rock Green C7 Z06 (me) are totally out of luck from the factory. The 2015 Corvette will only be available in Laguna Blue Tintcoat, Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic, Velocity Yellow Tintcoat, Arctic White, Blade Silver Metallic, Black, Shark Gray Metallic, Crystal Red Tintcoat, Torch Red and Night Race Blue Metallic.
Further changes for 2015 include an available clear roof section, available raw carbon fiber roof section, machined black aluminum wheels and a ZF1 package that adds all the visual cues of the Z51 pack without the bothersome performance enhancements.
So it's a first year, limited-color, well-optioned Chevy Corvette: Think it's an investment piece?
