  • 2014 Corvette Stingray reaching dealers across the country
  • First example went to NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick
  • Convertible will follow, likely by the end of the year

The first 2014 Chevrolet Corvette units are reaching dealers. That's the latest from Chevrolet, who announced that it delivered the very first all-new 2014 Corvette last month to NASCAR team owner -- and Chevrolet dealer -- Rick Hendrick.

Hendrick picked up his Corvette at the General Motors Design headquarters, located near Detroit. He won the right to buy the first car, with vehicle identification number 0001, earlier this year at the Barrett-Jackson auto auction. Hendrick paid $1.1 million for the privilege.

But shoppers interested in a new Corvette don't need to spend anywhere near that figure to get the sports car sometime soon. The Corvette starts around $52,000 with shipping, and Chevrolet says it has already built around 1,000 units. Dealer deliveries are starting now, meaning some lucky customers may pick up their sports cars by the end of October.

Of course, most Corvette models won't cost anywhere near the $52,000 price tag when they reach dealers. The V8-powered coupe is offered with a host of enticing options, ranging from special paint to a navigation system, an automatic transmission and a performance exhaust system. The Corvette's most expensive option package costs nearly $10,000.

Revealed in January at the Detroit Auto Show, the 2014 Corvette (officially called the 2014 Corvette Stingray) boasts 455 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. For the first Corvette, Hendrick picked black with a red interior. Hendrick also purchased the second Corvette, choosing a red exterior with a red interior. Both of Hendrick's 'Vettes use a 6-speed manual transmission.

With the coupe reaching dealers, Chevrolet will likely turn its attention to the launch of the 2014 Corvette Stingray convertible. The droptop Corvette was revealed at this year's Geneva Auto Show and should go on sale by the end of this year or early in 2014. And who's getting the first one? Rick Hendrick, of course. He paid $1 million for the first Corvette convertible at a separate auction several months after his first 7-figure purchase.

What it means to you: Though waiting lists are common right now, it won't be long before you can get your hands on a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette.
