    • Advanced, high-intensity discharge (HID) and light-emitting diode (LED) lighting
    • Dual, eight-inch configurable driver/infotainment screens, with next-generation Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system and rear vision camera
    • Bose nine-speaker audio system with SiriusXM Satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, USB and SD card and auxiliary input jack
    • Keyless access with push-button start
    • Power tilt/telescope steering wheel
    • An all-new, fully electronic top on the convertible that can be lowered remotely using the key fob


    As shown at the North American International Auto Show, the Stingray coupe fitted with the major available options would be $73,360, including:


    • 3LT interior package, with leather-wrapped interior ($8,005)
    • Z51 Performance Package ($2,800)

    • Exposed-carbon-fiber roof panel ($1,995)
    • Magnetic Ride Control with Performance Traction Management ($1,795)
    • Dual-mode exhaust system ($1,195)
    • Carbon fiber interior trim ($995)
    • Sueded, microfiber-wrapped upper interior trim ($995)
    • Red-painted calipers ($595)
    • Black-painted wheels ($495)


    The 3LT interior package includes: Bose 10-speaker surround-sound audio system; SiriusXM Satellite radio with one-year subscription and HD radio receiver; color head-up display; memory package; navigation system; heated and ventilated seats with power lumbar and bolster adjustment; premium Napa leather seating surfaces; and leather-wrapped dash and instrument panel, console and door panels.

    The Z51 Performance Package includes: high-performance gear ratios; transmission-cooling system; larger 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels and tires; larger, slotted rotors and brake-cooling ducts; electronic limited-slip differential and differential cooling system; unique chassis tuning; and available Magnetic Ride Control active-handling system with Performance Traction Management.

    2003 50th Annversary Red coupe, beautiful !

    Thumbs up Wow !

    I'm very impressed that the marketing folks hit the price nail right on the head on this C7. It makes a perfect transition from a Camaro SS Zl1 to a new Corvette. @ $51K for the base model. I paid $49.8K back in 2003 for my 50th Anniversary 1SC coupe. Sadly Chevy would only give me 17K for my 2003 Corvette as a trade-in. Which isn't never gonna happen, I only have 16,673 miles on her as of now. (I've been very sick the last few years. It's good to see they have thought this out and came to a fair price for this car. I really didn't like the first C7 I saw, it was in torch red, and had the huge black back bumper and valance. But I went to Chevy.com and there you can see it in a host of colors. In Cyber gray, they paint the whole car including the rear valance and once painted, (Just like my C5) the rear doesn't scream out at you. I still don't care for the foolish square lights but what ever, I suppose since my first Vette was a 1959 dark midnight metallic blue roadster and it had "Banana" shaped rear lights I guess I can live with square lights ! I'm very impressed !

    Although I don't have a spare $52K laying around, I think this is a real bargain considering the technology in this car. As has been the history with the 'Vette, I can't think of another car out there with the ability of the Corvette at this price.

    The two Chevy dealers out here will have a dealer markup of $5,000 to $10,000 for these cars.

    I'm sure that many of them will. They've been giving away Corvettes for the last several years to keep their allocations up. I'm sure they will try to make up for it with this car.

    Default Makes you wonder...

    You've got to wonder about GM pricing "strategies". They offer the Z51 Performance Package, LOADED with value, for just $2800. Then they turn around and want to charge $596 to paint the calipers red, and $495 to paint four wheels black. That must be SOME paint! On the one hand, they seem to consider Corvette buyers to be perceptive and intelligent, and on the other hand--real suckers for color. And I'm sure plenty will prove them correct.

    So much for drawing the younger owners in....It hasn't gone up much (about $1400 for the base?), but let's face it, many younger potential buyers will get shut out...but I do admit that it's a great value when you consider other sports cars of the day

    A 40+ year dream finally came true....Bob got his 'vette
