Nearly 60 years since the day it was first introduced, Chervolet unveils the long-awaited remake of one of America's most beloved sportscars, giving it a 21st century make-over able to give even original owners the chills. Clocking in at 450-hp with its new monstrous 6.2-liter V-8 engine, GM has decided that for its seventh generation redesign that is time to pay homage to the model that is considered to be the most legendary 'Vette of them all, reapplying the Stingray label to the two-door hatchback. Fitted with a removable roof panel, the 2014 received more pronounced curves, a larger role for the intake vents, and a sharper look to the headlamps, all wrapped into a new carbon fiber hood. Underneath, the new engine is fitted with cylinder deactivation technology, which allows the car to save fuel by operating on four-cylinders while coasting and all 8 while accelerating, helping it to reach 26 mpg without sacrificing its 4-second 0-60 mph time. Inside, GM designers went with with a new cockpit wrapped within a lightweight aluminum frame, giving it more of a racecar feel complete with paddle shifters. GM didn't want to reveal the pricing on the vehicle, but a 2013 model ranged from between $50,000  to a $100,000 fully-loaded, so that's probably safe budget. With this as a start, the Corvette's next 60 years look equally promising. Judge for your self after the click.
