"Stinger" by N2A
Feel the Sting!
The Corvette Sting Ray featured a unique combination of innovation, beauty, and power, and also included one of the most unique styling elements in automotive history- a split rear window. Now, after decades of waiting, Corvette fans can finally get their hands on what they’ve been clamoring for: a modern car with American muscle and all of the famous, classic styling of a late 60’s Corvette Sting Ray. Introducing N2A’s “Stinger.”
The Stinger‘s front end and hood scoop are inspired by the ‘67 Corvette, it has a mid-section reminiscent of a ‘65 Corvette, and the famous split-window rear end of the ‘63 Corvette. Built on a donor Corvette ZR1 platform, the Stinger features a carbon composite body reminiscent of the stealth technology N2A has prototyped for military contractors. The ZR1 is the quickest, most powerful Corvette ever made. It carries a 6.2-liter “LS9” V8 motor, which produces a tire-shredding 638 horsepower.
N2A begins by removing the body panels of the donor Corvette, and installing the new carbon composite Stinger body. This is a labor-intensive process that takes over 800 hours for N2A’s coach-building craftsmen to complete. The interior of each vehicle is entirely original with re-contoured leather seats, leather dash, wool carpeting, and leather-wrapped interior panels. The ZR1’s original wheels and cat-back exhaust are also removed and replaced with N2A’s custom-made components.
The Stinger can hit zero-to-sixty in just 3.4 seconds, rates a top speed of 205 mph, and has a fuel economy of 14 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. Since the ZR1’s chassis and safety equipment remain unmodified, GM’s 100,000-mile powertrain warranty remains completely intact, and the Stinger can be serviced at any GM dealership.
