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.

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