Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Atlantic Pacific

The new Corvette Stingray is on its way to becoming a hit for General Motors, seducing a lot of people, including the Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden. However, Chevrolet doesn’t stop here and the carmaker has just announced two new special editions called Atlantic and Pacific. Both feature only aesthetic upgrades, because under the bonnet they’re identical to the stock Stingray.

The Corvette Stingray “Atlantic” is a more luxurious version of the Corvette Convertible and compared to the stock version it features a front splitter inspired by the sporty Corvette Z06, chromed wheels, several parts of the body finished in Shark Grey paint and the lucky customers will also get a set of custom luggage.

On the other hand, the Stingray “Pacific” is only available as a coupe and has a more aggressive look emphasized by the carbon fiber on the side skirts, roof, mirror casings and front bumper and two satin black racing stripes. Add red brake calipers, satin black Z51 alloy wheels with red borders and black leather upholstery with red stitching and you get a nice sporty package.

Like we said, the two special editions have the same powertrain as the stock Stingray, which means they are powered by the 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 455-hp (460 with performance exhaust) and 460 lb-ft of torque (624 Nm). Both the Atlantic and Pacific editions will be available either with the seven-speed manual transmission or the eight-speed automatic one and sales in the U.S. are scheduled to start in the second half of 2014, with no pricing details released so far.
