The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette: 3-2-1 Launch

2011 Chevrolet Corvette CoupeThe 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.

Also Dial up suspension is new with the option of tour or sport. Tour being for highways while sport is for curvy roads. How it works is the magnetic selective ride control stiffens up the suspension when you dial it to sport allowing for greater control at higher speeds on winding roads. Whereas the magnetic selective ride control does the opposite on straighter highway roads. The Corvette also has Head-up display which displays your speed, rpms, mileage and so much more on your windshield so you don’t even have to look down at your dash. This is an extremely new and upcoming technology that is featured in many aircrafts and is now featured in the Chevrolet Corvette.
