The 2014 Corvette Stingray has been creating a lot of buzz for its update on the classic car. The vehicle has many new tech features and shares only two of the same auto parts with the previous generation of Corvette. It features an all-new frame structure and chassis, as well as a completely redesigned interior and exterior. General Motors’ North America President, Mark Reuss, said:

Like the ’63 Sting Ray, the best Corvettes embodied performance leadership, delivering cutting-edge technologies, breathtaking design and awe-inspiring driving experiences. The all-new Corvette goes farther than ever, thanks to today’s advancements in design, technology and engineering.

The new Stingray features dual 8-inch infotainment screens, a five-position Drive Mode Selector that tailors 12 vehicle attributes to the fit the driver’s environment, and a seven-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching that anticipates gear selections and matches engine speed.

The all-new 6.2L LT1 V-8 engine includes direct injection, Active Fuel Management, continuously variable valve timing, and an advanced combustion system that delivers more power while using less fuel. The vehicle’s aerodynamic exterior features advanced high-intensity discharge and LED lighting.

Mashable notes that the 2014 Corvette, which goes on sale in the third quarter of this year, also has a retracting LCD screen on the dashboard that can reveal a hidden space when you press a button. You can keep small objects like a smartphone in there and a USB port lets you charge it up while it’s inside.
