The 2012 Chevy Corvette: True to the Legacy

If one was to list the iconic cars of American motoring, one would have to include the Chevy Corvette. Born in the decade following World War II, its early models were emblematic of the post-war boom of all things American. The first Corvettes were an attempt by the surging General Motors Corporation to offer a stateside alternative in a market segment that had been dominated by the Europeans.

The 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe is a worthy heir to that legacy: powerful, sporty, technologically advanced, but affordable. The base Coupe is priced remarkably considering the power under the hood, Corvette bragging rights, and the cutting-edge appointments of the model. The Coupe comes with standard 430 horsepower 6.2 liter V8 that gets driver and car from zero to 60 in 4.2 seconds. The Magnetic Selective Ride Control and traction control helps manage that power to match the road, whether winding or flat out. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes are also standard.

On the outside, the Coupe features a removable roof panel that’s also available as a clear panel. Classic Corvette styling is not lost as Chevrolet marks its centennial in 2012 with traditional rounded fenders, dynamic lines, and two special colors: Carlisle Blue and Carbon Flash Metallic with the Centennial Edition. Chevy is also letting buyers choose the color of brake calipers, available in four color choices, and headlamps—three color choices.

The cockpit boasts a new seat design for comfort and control in high-performance settings. In the 2LT version and above, a heads-up display, Bose sound system and Bluetooth wireless technology are included along with a six-month trial subscription to GM’s OnStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation and Sirius Satellite Radio. There are also more than 50 dealer-installable accessories available to customize this personal bit of American automotive iconography.
