2014 C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray debuted last year, it won accolades upon accolades, including being named the 2014 North American Car of the Year. Of course, 2015 brings some updates and even the 2015 Z06 , but today at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas we’re most excited about the debut of the 2015 Stingray styled in collaboration with KISS frontman Paul Stanley.
While not a part of the KISS Army, I have to give props to Paul Stanley. As the front man for one of the most successful rock groups in history, Stanley worked with Chevrolet designers to personalize a 2015 Corvette Stingray coupe to create the perfect vehicle (pun intended) that reflects his creativity applied to America’s sports car.
Stanley selected the exterior scheme, which has a unique candy red hue offset with Midnight Glaze Silver paint on the roof, rear hatch, spoiler, outside mirrors, and front grille. He also helped select the quilted parchment leather seats and accents in the Jet Black cabin, plus the dark red accent stitching throughout.
“This car is undeniable in terms of its aesthetics,” says Stanley. “And it is also a world-class piece of machinery.”
Of course, power comes from the 6.2L V8 LT1 engine putting out 460 horsepower mated to GM’s new eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, which Chevrolet claims to deliver world-class shift times that rival the best dual-clutch designs, not to mention delivering an EPA-estimated 29 mpg on the highway. Stanley’s Stingray also features the Z51 Performance Package, notable for its dry-sump oiling system, electronic limited-slip differential, larger front brakes, and a cooling package for the differential and transmission.
This Corvette rolls on Chevrolet Accessories Carbon Flash Metallic forged aluminum wheels, 19-inch front/20-inch rear, paired with Michelin P245/35ZR19 tires front and P285/30ZR20 tires rear.
“It was great working with Paul Stanley, because of his vision and passion for design and automobiles,” says the U.S. vice president of performance vehicles and motorsports, Jim Campbell.
