Chevrolet will offer two special packages on the 2015 Corvette Stingray when it hits dealerships later this year. The Atlantic convertible features a luxury/GT-focused option, while the Pacific will be a track-focused coupe.

“One of the design goals for the Corvette Stingray was to provide customers with the flexibility to tailor the car to their personality,” said Kirk Bennion, Corvette exterior design manager. “The Atlantic and Pacific Design Packages were originally designed to showcase how the Stingray could be configured as a luxury sport GT car or as a high-performance motorsport car.”

The Atlantic is offered exclusively on Z51-equipped Corvettes and is meant to emulate the styling of “private jets seen at European vacation destinations.” The package is available in 2LT or 3LT trims and comes with a Z06-style front splitter, gray exterior vents, hood “stinger” graphics, chrome torque wheels, Stingray underhood liner and floor mats, custom splash guards, logo valve stem caps and custom luggage.

The Pacific coupe is offered on the same trims but comes with black racing stripes, black Z51 wheels, carbon fiber ground effects, carbon rear spoiler, mirrors and badges, red brake calipers, sport seats, interior carbon fiber trim, splash guards and a car cover.

The Pacific is meant for weekend track-day racers.

These coastal Corvette packages consist of visual upgrades only, which means the Stingray continues with its 455-hp, 6.2-liter V8 and seven-speed manual transmission. An eight-speed, paddle-shifted automatic is optional, as is Corvette's performance data recorder that combines the ability to record video with a professional-level telemetry system.

No comment yet on 2015 Corvette coastal option pricing, but we'll post it as soon as Chevy gives us a number.
