New Corvette to start around $52,000, GM says

DETROIT (AP) — General Motors says a base model of the 2014 Corvette Stingray will start at just under $52,000.

Considering everything that GM put into the newest Corvette, the $1,400 price increase over the current model seems pretty modest.

The all-new Corvette goes on sale this summer. The car 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, while the interior has a more modern look. The new Corvette can go from zero to 60 mph in under four seconds, a few tenths of a second faster than the current model.

Dealers say customers already are putting down deposits to be one of the first to get the new version.
