The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette: Cruise in The Lap of Luxury

2011 Chevrolet Corvette ConvertibleWhen people think about sports cars, they might imagine a sparse interior cabin that is a complete afterthought to the performance aspects of the vehicle. While the 2011 Chevrolet Corvette’s performance specifications, such as a V8 engine that can move you from zero to sixty in 4.2 seconds or less, is nothing to downplay, the luxury aspects of driving one shouldn’t be overlooked. The Chevrolet Corvette offers a removable hard top, so you can enjoy the breeze or batten the hatches, depending on your mood or the weather.

Often, a sports car will feature a tight, firm, suspension system geared to give the driver as much control and feel over the road as possible. Chevrolet realizes that situations and moods change, and you may not always want to feel every bump in the road. The Magnetic Selective Ride Control system allows you to switch between a firm “Sport” mode, and a more luxurious, comfortable “Touring” mode, proving once and for all that yes, you can have your cake and eat it too.

The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette also comes equipped with a 7 speaker Bose surround sound system, which integrates perfectly with the 3 month XM satellite radio trial for stellar tunes.
