NEW and improved, mouth-dropping inventions are never-ending especially when it comes to the hottest new cars for the year.
Website forbes.com states that the 2014 model of the year is serving up an engaging array of new and fully redesigned models ranging from family sedans and plush luxury cars to hot sport coupes and utilitarian pickup trucks.
“While all are significant, two new breakthrough autos will likely dominate the discussion for several months to come, namely the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.”
Long known as “America’s sports car,” the iconic Chevrolet Corvette is a big story if for no other reason because new versions are so few and far between. It’s entering only the seventh generation in its storied 60-year history with a major 2014 redesign.
Said to share only two components with the outgoing model, the re-imagined ‘Vette brings back a revered name from the car’s Golden Age: Stingray. Also making it to the hottest new cars of the year is the 2014 Stingray exterior.
The 2014 Stingray exterior is radically recast with composite and carbon fiber body panels, yet it bears a certain familiarity that makes it instantly recognisable as a Corvette.
Forbes.com adds with low slung and requisite curves and creases, it looks like a hot wheels toy car come to life but with performance that should give some exotic sports cars a workout for far less money, starting at just $51,000.
“Arevamped 6.2-liter V8 engine puts an estimated 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque to the pavement through the rear wheels via a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission.”
