During the creation of the virtual
Corvette Stingray, careful attention was paid to the tiniest details of
the new design inside and out, as well as to the enhanced performance
driving characteristics – down to the shift schedule for the seven-speed
manual transmission with Active Rev Matching.
The Corvette Stingray will produce an
estimated 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. It can accelerate from
0-60 in less than four seconds and will achieve more than 1g in
cornering grip. It will also be the most fuel-efficient Corvette ever,
expected to exceed the EPA-estimated 26 mpg of the current model.
“The Polyphony team has had an
unforgettable experience getting to know the Corvette Stingray, inside
and out, and bringing it into Gran Turismo 5,” said Kazunori Yamauchi,
president of Polyphony Digital Inc. “We’re excited to share our
experience with fans and let them feel, explore and drive the Corvette
in a way that wasn’t possible until now.”
All six previous generations of the
Corvette have been available to players of the Gran Turismo series. The
Chevrolet nameplate remains one of the most popular vehicles to race.
