October 6 2020, Middle East – The Chevrolet Corvette is a legend, instantly recognizable from every angle. With a legacy such as this, the all-new 2020 Corvette Stingray presented a momentous occasion for the team: the opportunity to redesign an icon from the ground-up. Channeling the legacy of Corvette into the mid-engine design, the 2020 Stingray was born, redefining performance, technology, craftsmanship and luxury.
“The mid-engine design not only unlocks enhanced levels of performance but also demands a complete redesign of the entire vehicle,” said Farah Amhaz, Head of Brand, Chevrolet Middle East. “The powerful all-new LT2 V8 engine takes center stage as an integral part of the design, a tribute to the fastest and most powerful Corvette Stingray ever created. We are sure our regional customers will love the 2020 Corvette Stingray and we can’t wait to get them behind the wheel.”
The all-new exterior showcases a bold, futuristic expression with exotic proportions made possible by the mid-engine configuration, while still being unmistakably Corvette. Lean and muscular, with an athletic sculptural shape, the 2020 Corvette Stingray conveys a sense of motion and power from every angle.
Just as expressive from the side, the 2020 Corvette Stingray’s design is also practical. With large side air intakes that cool the powerful engine and improve the aerodynamic performance, the 2020 Stingray is designed to move fast. The a-pillar shape communicates speed and assists in visibility, powering acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph in less than three seconds when equipped with the Z51 Performance Package. The dynamic and thoughtful design details make this not just your everyday car, but a car you will want to drive every day.
The highlight of the re-engineered Corvette is the engine. As the heart of this next generation Corvette, it had to be on display. Re-positioned in its new location, the engine sits like a jewel in a showcase, visible through the large rear hatch window to command attention on the road and while parked.
The Chevrolet design team paid close attention to ergonomics to create a beautifully sculpted mid-engine sports car that makes a powerful statement. The attractive look offers low profile headlamps designed around all-new projectors and dual-element LED taillamps with animated turn signals.
This icon offers more stylish design options and upgraded technologies., available in four new exterior color options – Red Mist Metallic Tintcoat, Silver Flare Metallic, Full-Length Dual Racing Stripe Package and Carbon Flash Stinger Stripe – and three trims – 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT.
Redesigning the Corvette Stingray from the ground up was the opportunity Chevrolet designers have desired for over 60 years. They did not disappoint. The Corvette Stingray with its new mid-engine design offers Middle East consumers the best the world has to offer.
