The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette is one mean machine with its 6.2L LS3 aluminum block V8 capable of 430 horsepower and 424 foot pounds of torque. The transmission is a six speed manual with overdrive and has two different manual settings on the Magnetic Selective Ride Control System for greater control for twisting turns and the open roads.
But what sets the 2011 Corvette even farther apart from its competitors is its available launch control system. The launch control system is designed for those people who love to compete in club sanctioned closed-course track events. The launch control system works as followed; when the Corvette is at a dead stop, all the driver has to do is put the gas peddle to the floor and then the Corvette sets the engine speed to a specific predetermined launch RPM. Then all the driver has to do is remove their foot off the clutch quickly and get ready for takeoff while the car handles the acceleration. The Corvette’s computer then modulates the torque of the engine 100 times each second to give the driver maximum acceleration performance. On the test track, the Corvette reached speeds up to 190 MPH, which is feat that can be added to the Corvette’s already impressive resume.
