Sitting in the plush, comfortable seats of a brand-new Chevrolet Corvette, or throwing short, smooth shifts in the all-new six-speed transmission is reason enough to know that this Chevy has changed dramatically over the years. Read on to find out what you can expect from the newest version of the legendary car.
Famous American Power
As history has told us, a power plant with monstrous horsepower and torque is of the highest priority when it comes to designing Corvettes. For 2012, Chevy succeeding in boosting power in the base model to an incredible 430 horsepower and 424 lb-ft of torque, thanks to a 6.2L V8. It includes launch control, a feature that controls wheel slip during acceleration so that you lose no time in coming off the line.
Corvette Supercars: Z06 and ZL1
Do you want to inject your 2012 Corvette with enough power to keep more expensive import supercars in the rear-view mirror? The 505-horsepower Corvette Z06 and the 638-horsepower Corvette ZR1 will do just that. In these legendary Chevys, you can expect 0-60 times of less than four seconds.
Riveting Driving Dynamics
For 2012, Chevrolet improved upon the legendary Corvette by focusing on refining the driving experience. You can expect responsive steering and a very planted, centered feel when you round even the sharpest corners. With different suspension choices—the base suspension, magnetic ride control suspension, or performance-tuned Z07 suspension—you’ll be able to get a Chevy Corvette exactly how you want it.
The new Chevrolet Corvette wouldn’t be complete if it didn’t come with modern features. For instance, with your Corvette keys in your pocket, all you have to do is approach the Corvette and touch the door handle to unlock the car. After that, just press another button and your Vette’s V8 engine will roar to life.
