Chevrolet reports it has begun shipping the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray coupe to dealers starting today.

The new C7 Corvettes are, of course, assembled at General Motors’ Bowling Green Assembly — about 1,000 Stingrays have been built so far for delivery. Most are expected to be delivered to dealers within the next few weeks.

The Bowling Green plant, opened in 1981, underwent a $131-million upgrade to take on the new Corvette, including about $52 million for a new body shop. The car’s all-new aluminum frame will be built in-house for the first time. Meanwhile, the Performance Build Center, a production line for Corvette fans to build their own specialty engines, is moving from Michigan to the Bowling Green, Ky., plant and should be open early next year.

Pricing for the new 2014 Corvette starts at $51,995, including destination, for the coupe and $56,995, including destination, for the convertible. Ragtop production will begin by year end.

The 2014 Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray is the most hotly anticipated new car to arrive in the marketplace in a long, long time.

Saturday at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion in Monterey, Calif., the competition version of the new Corvette was shown for the first time and it looked both sensational and sinister.

Even with its hallucination-inducing graphics, you can tell this car that this new racer, known as the C7.R,will be striking on the track.
