The Chevrolet Corvette, now in its sixth generation, first debuted as a convertible, and was designed by Harley Earl and introduced at the GM Motorama in 1953 as a concept show car. Long prized for its high performance at an attainable price, the Chevy Corvette continues to give drivers the best bang for the buck thanks to its supercar performance, relative driving comfort and reasonable maintenance costs. The current 2013 car comes in a variety of models, including Corvette Coupe, Grand Sport, Convertible, 427, Z06, and the ultimate ZR1,which boasts a handcrafted LS9 638-horsepower supercharged V8.

The 2013 Chevy Corvette continues, once again, to be the ultimate American sports car. The 2013 model year marks the end of the C6 generation of the Corvette, as a new Corvette is set to debut in 2014. To celebrate, Chevrolet has released an all-new 427 Convertible model, which puts the powerful 505-horsepower, 7.0-liter V-8 engine from the Corvette Z06 under the hood of the droptop. Other new features include an available ZR1-style rear spoiler on Corvette and Grand Sport models and available black-painted five-spoke aluminum wheels.
Powering the 2013 Corvette
The Corvette Coupe, Convertible, and Grand Sport are powered by a 6.2-liter V8 with 430 horsepower. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard; a 6-speed Paddle Shift automatic ($1,250) is optional. An optional dual-mode exhaust system ($1,195) raises horsepower to 436 hp. The new 427 Convertible is powered by the same 505-hp, 7.0-liter V-8 that's under the hood of the Z06. Available only with a six-speed manual transmission, the 427 Convertible gets various performance bits and pieces from both the ZR1 and Z06 like a rear-mounted battery, Magnetic Selective Ride Control, and a dry-sump oiling system. The Corvette ZR1 is America's supercar. Weighing in at 3,353 pounds, the ZR1 is based on the aluminum chassis of the Corvette Z06. With a top speed of 205 mph, the ZR1 is the fastest car ever built by GM.
2013 Chevy Corvette Design
From some angles, the Corvette is almost pretty. However, functional elements dictate the design and the result is a forward motion that implies performance. The lines of the bulging hood, the shape of the fenders, and the cat's-eye headlights all point forward to a subtle beaklike shape. A pair of fog lights flanks a wide air intake below. Vents behind the front tires let hot air out of the engine compartment. The sculpted fenders, with sharp creases that sweep dramatically up to the planed rear deck, call to mind race cars as well as jet fighters. At the back, four round taillights recall Corvette's past and make the car look like an F-18 taking off in full afterburner mode.
The Z06 is distinguished from other Corvettes by lots of subtle appearance tweaks, starting with the roof. It's fixed rather than removable, adding an extra element of structural stiffness for track driving. In front, the Z06 has a wider, lower grille and a separate, unique air scoop above the bumper to shove more intake air under the hood. Its fenders are wider front and rear to cover massively wide tires and rims.
The ZR1 also offers its own cues. A transparent section in the hood allows owners to show off the engine. Other unique features of the ZR1 include Brembo-brand carbon ceramic brake rotors, Magnetic Selective Ride Control, and a carbon-fiber roof, front fenders and hood.
The brand new 427 Convertible features wide-body styling, a carbon fiber raised hood and other carbon fiber pieces. Unique 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels wrapped in ZR1-style Michelin PS2 tires are standard. Buyers can also opt for a stinger stripe with the 427 Heritage Package.
