Just to kill a little time over the holidays, (and because I am curious) I decided to do an online build of the 460HP, 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe 1LT.

I continued my build by selection the Cyber Gray Metallic as the exterior color, with the Gray Perforated Napa leather seating surfaces interior.

I chose the Z51 5-split spoke Black aluminum wheels which added $495.

I kept the 7-speed manual transmission over the optional $1,350 6-speed Paddle Shift automatic transmission, and not because of the money. I just love manuals, and can't think of a better car for it. I then upgraded a few of the mechanical options and added...
• Magnetic Selective Ride Control™: $1,795
• Yellow-painted brake calipers: $595
• Performance exhaust: 1,195
• Battery Protection Package: $100

For the exterior, I added:
• Hood stinger stripe, Cyber Gray: $0
• Wheel center caps with Stingray™ logo, Genuine Corvette® Accessory (Dealer-installed): $210
• Carbon Fiber Dual Roof Package, which includes a visible carbon-fiber roof panel with body-color surround
and a second Transparent roof panel that weigh just 16 lbs making them easy to remove and store: $2,995

For the exterior, I added:
• Competition Sport Bucket Seats, which provide performance fit and bolstering and are built on sturdy, yet lightweight magnesium seat frames.
• Real carbon-fiber instrument panel trim: $995
• Custom Sillplates With Stingray™ Logo, Genuine Corvette® Accessory (Dealer-Installed): $235
• Cargo mat, Genuine Corvette® Accessory (Dealer-installed): $205
• Cargo shade, Genuine Corvette® Accessory (Dealer-installed): $130

I was going to select the "free" Remote vehicle starter system, but this required me to buy and choose something I did not want, the 6-speed Paddle Shift automatic transmission for $1,350.

To this, we add the $995 Destination Freight Charge, bringing our Stingray build to $72,140.

Unlike most online build sites, what you select and add to the car does not show up on this one, which is a bit disappointing.
