Like their American counterparts, we are sure many Corvette enthusiasts in Europe are excited over some of the new changes coming to the 2017 Corvette models. Chevrolet introduced those new changes earlier this year at the NCM Bash. More recently, Chevrolet Europe has issued a press release revealing the prices of the 2017 Corvettes in Europe as well as detailing many of the new options and upgrades available to European buyers.
Since the introduction of the C7, the new Corvettes have been welcomed and some might say have even thrived in Europe. The C7s have picked up numerous awards in Europe including Sport Auto’s best convertible for under 100,000 Euros and the Auto Trophy readers choice award for the car offering the best value for the money.
When the 2017 Corvettes go on sale in Europe, buyers will be able to select between the Corvette Stingray Z51 or the supercharged 650-hp Corvette Z06 in either coupe or convertible body styles, as well as your choice of manual or automatic transmissions. Sadly, it appears that the 2017 Grand Sport will not be offered on the old continent this year.
All four new colors introduced earlier this year will be offered. Those choices are Sterling Blue, Admiral Blue, Watkins Glen Gray and Black Rose Metallic. They join the existing colors including Black, Torch Red, Long Beach Red, Arctic White, Corvette Racing Yellow and Blade Silver.
Other technology-related options include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity with the Chevrolet MyLink Infotainment Center, as well as new features on the Performance Data Recorder to improve usability.
Inside the cockpit, there is a new black quilted suede headliner in the Coupe models, and the suede steering wheel and shifter are now included as standard when sueded seating surfaces are chosen. Those that select red seat stitching will also get red shift paddles as standard.
A change specific for the Corvette Z06 is the ability to order the Carbon Ceramic brakes as a free flow option.
