General Motors said Friday a base model of the 2014 Corvette Stingray will start at just under $52,000, a $1,400 increase over the current model.
The new Corvette goes on sale this summer.
It was the talk of the Detroit auto show in January because of the dramatic changes GM made to it. GM designers made the car lower and sleeker, saving weight by replacing the steel structure with aluminum. The hood is made of lightweight carbon fiber. The interior gets a more modern look with new touch screens.
Under the hood, the car gets a new 450-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8 engine that can go to four cylinders on the highway to save fuel. A new seven-speed manual transmission is standard.
The car can go from zero to 60 mph in under four seconds, a few tenths of a second faster than the current model.
