Does This Contest Reveal The Price Of The 2014 Corvette Stingray?

We've seen loads of pictures of the 2014 Corvette. We know the specs. But we don't yet know how much it costs. However, this contest from General Motors may shed a little light on that.

As pointed out over at the Corvette 7 forum, GM is currently running an online contest where you can enter to win the C7 'Vette as well as a trip to the 24 Hours of LeMans in France. The contest's official rules puts the approximate retail value of the Corvette being given away as $71,860. (The trip to LeMans is priced at $10,750, putting the total contest value at $82,610.)

So does this mean the upcoming Corvette will cost around $70,000? Maybe. The problem here is we have no idea what kind of options are included on the car that's being given away.

A base model 2013 Corvette coupe starts at just under $50,000. Check nearly every box when you configure it online like I did and you can hit $71,000 pretty easily. It's safe to assume then that the Stingray being given away will be a pretty loaded one.

I take all of this to mean that the price of the C7 Corvette probably won't be too far off from the outgoing C6. And that's a good thing, since the Corvette is supposed to be about bang for your buck. We'll see how accurate this is when Chevy releases the official pricing.

Hat tip to Tom!
