    Uncovered: 2014 Corvette Stingray Start-up Audio
    Here's what the Stringray will play when you get in it.

    At this point, there is little not known about Chevrolet's 2014 Corvette Stingray. We know what the car looks like, what powers it, and even which features and colors it will sport. Amongst the feature list is General Motors' next-generation infotainment system, which is based off of Cadillac CUE; meaning the Stingray will gleefully play an audio clip each time someone gets in the car, and GMI has uncovered that audio clip.

    Today all Cadillac CUE vehicles play a tune upon entry. The tune matches to an animation that happens on both the center stack touchscreen and driver's information center. The combined effect give the Caddies a little bit of a starship flare. It is a small detail that GM appears to be adding to just about every vehicle that utilizes the CUE-based infotainment system, though every brand is getting a different clip.

    Click here to listen to the Stingray's startup audio. It's worth noting that this was labeled as version one, so it may change a bit before production, though unlikely.

    The 2014 Corvette Stingray will arrive in dealerships later this year, with a starting price of $51,995.

    Sounds pretty nice.
    Maybe a little to soft and pleasant for a corvette though. But it can't really be loud or obnoxious either. So I guess this is a happy median.

    Reminds me of the THX theme.

    Agreed. I think that every time I get in my ATS.

    Cool...

    I wonder if there is a mod to change the sample?

    What exactly does the new Cadillac cue start up sound like?
    I read it was added after the first major update last month. But I've never heard it and no ones really described it yet.

    Sounds pretty sinister.

    First thing I'd do after burning a little rubber on a new Corvette would be to dive into the menus and figure out how to TURN IT OFF. Permanently.

    Exactly. That would get annoying quick for me. I'd rather just hear the engine.
