We always like to mention when the latest Corvette model goes live on Chevrolet’s website and according to our friend CorvetteConti.com, General Motors flipped the switch on Corvette.com late last month to showcase the 2013 models which include the new 427 Convertible as well as the equally awesome 60th Anniversary package.
Special Edition Corvettes
Fresh off the successful launch of their 25th Anniversary B2K Corvettes, one of which we showed you from last month’s Bloomington Gold Show, Callaway Cars is back to show off their version of the all new 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible. If Chevy is calling the production 427 Convertible the fastest, most capable convertible in Corvette’s history – just imagine the fun you would have with the supercharged 652 horsepower Callaway 427 Convertible.
Back in February we told you about the return of the famous B2K option package for Corvettes. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the very first RPO B2K Corvette, Callaway Cars and Bowling Green will be building just 25 2012 Corvettes. We caught up with car #11 at Bloomington Gold last weekend.
If you’re looking for a 1978 Corvette Pace Car that is a great candidate for NCRS or Bloomington Gold certification, then Mike Yager at Mid America Motorworks has just the car for you.
Mike and his team bought the car for just those reasons, but he says they’ve just been too busy restoring other cars and don’t have room for this Pace Car.
Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter recently turned the tables on one of the media.
After answering questions like he usually does, Tadge came up with one of his own and asked Autoweek writer Dale Jewett a jewel of a question: “What would you change for the next Corvette?”
If you haven’t entered the Race To Win Corvette contest that will put one lucky winner behind the wheel of the 2013 427 Convertible, you’re almost out of time. Corvette Racing’s Oliver Gavin and Jan Magnussen are here to remind you exactly how huge of a contest this is. But you better hurry as the contest closes on June 20th.
Team Penske driver Ryan Briscoe averaged 226.484 mph to win the pole for this Sunday’s 96th Annual Indianapolis 500. While that time guarantees he’ll be starting at the head at the field, there are some other benefits that the Indy pole sitter enjoys like getting the opportunity to run some hot laps in the 2013 Corvette ZR1 Indianapolis 500 pace car.
Last week we told you all about the people and organizations being inducted into the 2012 Bloomington Gold Great Hall. As promised, we now present the 10 Corvettes to be included in this year’s Great Hall. The cars of the class of 2012 include the oldest production Corvette, a wildly popular styling car, and a pair of famous L88 racers.
We dropped the rumor last week that Guy Fieri is in contention to be the pace car driver at this year’s Indianapolis 500 and today we learned that its official. The celebrity chef and Corvette owner will be driving the 2013 Corvette ZR1 to start the 96th running of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 27th.
