The Corvette Stingray C7 has a sleek front fascia that feature Bi-Xenon headlamps with LED turn signals and chrome inserts. The large air intake feeding the 6.2-litre V8 engine that offers the iconic Corvette a character of its own.
All of the performance technology and capabilities introduced on the Corvette Stingray Convertible carry over to the Coupe. The only structural changes is the folding top and repositioned safety belt mounts.
