Chevy has announced that the 2015 Chevy Corvette Stingray will be available with two new design packages: the Atlantic convertible and Pacific coupe. The Corvette Stingray Atlantic convertible and Corvette Stingray Pacific coupe concepts were introduced last fall at the SEMA Show, but strong response from enthusiasts helped influence production.
“One of the design goals for the Corvette Stingray was to provide customers with the flexibility to tailor the car to their personality,” said Kirk Bennion, Corvette exterior design manager. “The Atlantic and Pacific Design Packages were originally designed to showcase how the Stingray could be configured as a luxury sport GT car or as a high-performance motorsport car.”
Chevy says that the 2015 Corvette Stingray Atlantic Design Package is inspired by the luxury and performance of private jets. It adds a front Z06-style splitter, shark gray exterior vents, chrome wheels, Stingray floor mats and custom luggage.
The 2015 Corvette Stingray Pacific Design Package is inspired by West Coast drivers who attend weekend track events. It’s available in Torch Red, Black, Arctic White, Blade Silver and Shark Gray. The package adds black racing stripes, black Z51 wheels, a carbon fiber ground effects kit, red brake calipers, sport seats and carbon fiber interior trim.
“We plan to make news with the Corvette Stingray every year, in part by offering special-edition models that offer a unique, personal ownership experience,” said Todd Christensen, Corvette marketing manager. “Our customers have told us they appreciate these limited-edition models, which have become an important part of the Corvette’s legacy.”
