2014 Corvette Stingray Gran Turismo Concept Car

Does art imitate life, or does life imitate art? In this case, it’s both.

Here we have a car that existed first in a video game and was then re-created in real life. The 2014 Corvette Stingray Gran Turismo Concept is based on a playable car from the Gran Turismo 6 video game for PlayStation 3.

Performance wise, this car is identical to any other new Stingray. But this is SEMA, and the car is decked out in lots of appearance and trim pieces. It starts with the custom matte blue paint, which is definitely not a factory color.

The car features 19″ front and 20″ wheels, which are actually available through GM Performance Parts. The car weighs less than a regular Stingray thanks to its high-fiber diet (carbon fiber, that is!). The Stingray GT concept has a carbon fiber hood, roof panel, rear wing, ground effects kit, and a front air splitter and rear exhaust diffuser. It’s also got a front tow hook, custom grille, and some yellow-tinted headlamps that I think look quite awful.

The inside of the car features sport seats with racing harnesses and a flat-bottomed steering wheel.

Although the wheels are available for purchase, the rest of the car is still just a concept and is not available as an appearance package at the time of publication. I think the Corvette Stingray Gran Turismo concept is an interesting example of life imitating art.
