Chevrolet has released European pricing details on its newly updated 2015 Corvette Stingray. Now available with General Motors’ new eight-speed automatic transmission, the car is priced from $92,425 (€74,500) in Germany.
The European-spec Corvette Stingray comes standard with the optional Z51 package, which adds performance-oriented gear ratios, retuned suspension, larger slotted brake rotors, a dry sump lubrication system, a limited-slip differential and model specific wheels and tires.
The base price of a 2015 C7 Corvette equipped with a Z51 package in the United States is $59,000, reflecting a $33,425 price premium in Germany. That’s a good chunk more, but at least it’s less than in the UK, where Jeremy Clarkson’s test car touted a $108,959 price on the window sticker.
Despite their penchant for diesel four-cylinders, Europeans still receive GM’s 6.2-liter LT1 V8 in the Corvette, putting out the same 465 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque as it does in its homeland.
