The history of the Chevrolet Corvette is rich indeed and it is kept alive by all of the collectors out there who cherish these very special vehicles and keep them in such fantastic condition. There is nothing like a classic Corvette and owning one is a source of pride for true enthusiasts. And hey, owning two or three is even better!
The above having been stated, time marches on and the Corvette has been with us for a long time and will continue to be with us into the foreseeable future. Though the classic models speak for themselves, these days modern automotive engineering is truly mind blowing.
We have just entered into a new year, and it only seems right to take a look at the 2012 new Corvette, which is quite a specimen.
The 2012 Corvette base coupe is carrying a price tag of just under $50,000. It is powered by a remarkable aluminum block 16 valve V-8 engine that really packs a punch. It’s a 6.2 L that is rated at a robust 430 horsepower. The transmission is a six speed manual, and the car is capable of going from a standing position to 60 miles an hour in 3.95 seconds.
And, the new 2012 Chevy Corvette is not going to cost you a small fortune at the gas pumps because although this engine is powerful it is intelligent as well and the car gets an estimated 26 miles per gallon on the highway.
For style, comfort, performance and just plain awesomeness it would be difficult to top the 2012 new Corvette. The classics are just that, but this new ‘Vette is a force to be reckoned with as well.
