Corvette Coupe features a stylish exterior with the removable transparent roof panel and the two exciting exterior colors of Carlisle Blue and Carbon Flash Metallic. The Convertible gives you a remarkable open-air experience with the standard manual top or the available power top that can be lifted in just 18 seconds. Grand Sport exhibits a muscular stance with a sporty outlook and the Grand Sport Convertible with the dual front wheel air vents and Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car Gen 2 tires displays an athletic character. However, along with the removable top the Grand Sport Convertible has a spacious trunk in the back to load your sports cargo and accessories.
Z01 is made the lightest sports car with the available carbon–fiber elements, carbon–fiber roof, splitter, rockers and hood. It can be personalized by selecting the brake caliper color of your choice i-e available in Dark Gray Metallic, Silver, Yellow or standard Red. The headlamp can also chosen in gray, silver or black colors. ZR1 displays a spectacular exterior with light carbon fibre chassis engineered to fulfill the requirements of high speeds.
Comfort and Convenience is the trait of Corvette. The seats are comfortable with the bolsters and seat cushions. The microfibre seats are a new addition on Coupe. The spoke steering wheel with model-specific badges gives better grip and control.
Padded center console and armrests are standard on Convertible and the Custom Leather-Wrapped Interior Package is available on 4LT trims. However, the interior of Z01 is fashioned to meet requirements of luxury and beauty. The generous space in ZR1 allows you to pack your luggage and the leather trim on the instrument panel upper, door panel uppers, console cover and sport seat surfaces is an emblem of splendor.
What more can we expect for a Corvette as the robust 6.2-liter LS3 aluminum-block V8 engine can give you the performance of a sports car. The output power of 430 hp is achieved with the top speed of 190 mph. The available Magnetic Selective Ride Control and 6-speed manual gearbox allows efficient handling of the vehicle. The Convertible gives a power performance on closed-course track events with an impressive mileage of 26 mpg on highway. However, 2012 Grand Sport is a luxury sports car engineered to give efficient fuel economy with the Z52 Performance Package.
Super- fast and blazing performance with an output power of 505 hp is achieved on Z06 with a 7.0 Liter LS7 aluminum–block V8 engine. The Brembo Carbon Ceramic Brakes gives more stopping power even at high speeds. You can get a true racing car experience on ZR1 with a 6.2 Liter LS9 aluminum block V8 engine that is equipped with a four-lobe Eaton Twin Vortices Series supercharger and is able to generate 638 hp of output power.
