The 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray build-your-own tool is online, where you can spec out the newest “America's favorite sports car” in any way you like.

The base price of the 455-hp Corvette still surprises and delights us at $51,995, not including destination. The top model—3LT with the Z51 package—comes in at $62,800. That's a steal in world where Italian stallions cost a quarter-million or more, and hypercars top seven figures.

Our dream Corvette starts in black with the Z51 package for $2,800. It adds the limited-slip differential, dry-sump oil system and rear-differential cooler, among other things. We'd also take the Adrenaline red interior. Since we're trying to keep it under 60K, we'll stick with the five-split-spoke 19-inch wheels. The Magnetic Selective Ride Control is such a good system, we'll have to add that too for $1,795. And what would a Corvette be without a $1,195 performance exhaust?

The transparent roof panel is $995, which we could live without, but we don't want to pass on the chance of a night drive with stars for a headliner, so, box checked. The competition sport bucket seats would be cool, but for $2,495, we'll pass.

That brings our grand total to $58,780, including $995 in destination charges. That's less than 60K for a coupe with a power-to-weight ratio just a half-pound less than the last Viper ACR and the newest Porsche 911 Turbo. By the way, that Turbo costs about $150,000 without any options.

There is no main exterior image on the site yet, but that's probably not a big deal considering we've already seen the car plenty of times, including here, here and here.
