The 2014 Corvette Stingray Power Specs Are Here, And It's A LotS

We knew that the new 2014 Corvette Stingray was going to have big horsepower numbers, but we didn't know they'd be this big.

We're talking 455 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque out of its 6.2L V8 engine, all connected to the wheels by a transmission with active rev-match technology. That's definitely a nice little bump from the 450/450 numbers that General Motors originally estimated.

What's perhaps even more impressive, though, is that GM says that expect to improve upon the previous-generation C6 Corvette's 26 MPG on the highway.

When you consider that the new Corvette should only set you back about $52k, suddenly it really seems to look like a serious bargain for some serious hoonage potential.

Then again, that's what the Corvette's always been about.
