Midday Matinee: This is how the all-new Corvette Stingray is put together

Ever wonder how a high-performance American sports car is built? The video below shows the process – and it’s a beautiful thing.

Chevrolet began shipping the much-anticipated 2014 Corvette Stingray to dealerships last Friday. To mark the occasion, they offered Corvette enthusiasts an inside look into the birthing process of the iconic vehicle at General Motors’ assembly plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The assembly line video shows the meticulous attention to detail that goes into the production of each Vette – from the precision robot laying down the all-new, light-weight aluminum frame to the last worker giving the final polish.

So far, the upgraded Bowling Green plant has produced about 1,000 Corvette Stingrays for delivery to customers over the next few weeks.

The seventh-generation Corvette comes equipped with a 6.2-litre, V8 engine capable of producing 455 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque. Pricing in Canada starts at $52,745 for the coupe version.
