The Stingray was able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds, had a braking distance from 60-0 in 107 ft, and sustained 1.03 g in cornering. With these performance figures, the 2014 Corvette Stingray was able to complete a lap around the Virginia International Raceway’s 4.2-mile “Grand Course” in just 2:51.78. For comparison purposes, the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE did the same lap in 2:58.34.
