BY Chase Wilhelm • January 8, 2016

This brand new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray headed for the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction features an array of modifications that make this supercar unique from the body to the wheels.

This seventh-generation Chevy Corvette is the latest model to have the Corvette Stingray name since the first model during the third-generation in 1976.

Painted in a pretty grabber blue, a custom wide-body kit was installed and molded, with the rear of the car widened by 12 inches, and the front widened by eight inches.

Carbon-fiber, handmade lower valances and a spoiler were installed, as well as a one-off custom handmade grille equipped with LED custom running lights.

This one-off supercar with only 350 miles on it also features a GM performance suspension that has changeable modes for various road conditions.

Looking under the hood, the factory LT1 engine was upgraded, now featuring an Edelbrock E-Force Stage Two supercharger, a custom Magnaflow multimode performance exhaust system, a cold-air intake and a custom tune and program. All of these modifications helps this Corvette pump out an astonishing 700-horsepower.

The transmission is a performance GM 6-speed automatic featuring the optional paddle-shifter for race shifting.

The wheels are also one-off customs with 22-inch Forgiatos with Pirelli P Zero, Z-rated performance tires. The brake calipers are also painted the same grabber blue to match the body color.

The interior of the vehicle includes GM leather with racing bucket seats and carbon-fiber accents. This 3LT package also features a navigation system, power windows, steering and brakes, as well as heated and ventilated seats, SiriusXM radio, and a Bose 10-speaker audio system.

The convertible top is also a custom black cloth with power lift and retract.

Barrett-Jackson's 45th anniversary auction will take place Jan. 23-31.
