Corvette Stingray SEMA special editions

The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray gets three SEMA specials, including a homage to Playstation game Gran Turismo

Chevrolet will show three Corvette special editions at this week’s 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas.

Most exciting is the Corvette Stingray Gran Turismo concept, which pays tribute to the Playstation driving game’s 15th birthday. The GT ‘Vette gets a cosmetic overhaul, with custom paint, yellow-tinted headlights and carbonfibre accoutrements, including a rear wing, bonnet and front splitter.

Inside, the sports seats get racing harnesses and the steering wheel is flat-bottomed. A cosmetic overhaul is all this is, though, with the new C7 Stingray’s 454bhp 6.2-litre V8 engine unchanged, still driving the rear wheels through a seven-speed manual gearbox.

The other two concepts are the Stingray Coupe Pacific concept, a Torch Red ‘Vette with the Z51 performance pack (dry-sump oiling system, enhance cooling, electronic limited-slip differential, tweaked gear ratios), black stripes and satin black alloy wheels, and the Convertible Atlantic concept, painted Blade Silver and said to display the styling sophistication of a private jet. It gets 19in chrome wheels and a six-speed automatic gearbox, defining it as a cruiser’s Corvette rather than a car enthusiast’s.
