Reveal and Walk Around of the 2012 Centennial Edition Corvettes

After seeing the Carbon Flash Metallic paint up close and in person, I was blown away at the sparkle and shine that radiates from the car under the bright Kentucky sunshine. It’s a spectacular color that lends itself well to Corvettes and should cause a lot of buyers to plunk down the extra cash for the 1-year special edition Corvette. At the National Corvette Museum’s C5/C6 Bash on Friday morning, the first three Corvettes of 2012, all Centennial Editions, were unveiled in front of a crowd of Corvette owners and enthusiasts.

Maximizing Performance: New Details and Upgrades for 2012 Corvettes

Next weekend’s C5/C6 Bash at the National Corvette Museum is the annual confab where GM and the Corvette Team introduce the changes on the new model-year Corvette. However, that presentation appears to have been somewhat preempted by the release of information from a Chevy dealer on the Corvette Forum which details the changes and upgrades coming on the 2012 Corvette.

Where 2011 was about personalization, you can say that 2012 is all about maximizing performance, especially at the higher end of the model lineup. ZR1 gets a new performance package while Z06 gets some more of ZR1’s tech. New wheels, R-Compound Michelin cup tires and a new 9-speaker stereo are just some of the option boxes that buyers will be checking off starting this summer.

There’s a lot to go through so we’re going to list the options and then we’ll come back around to analyze and discuss with you. As the t-shirt says, “Sit down, shut up and hang on” as we take you through the list of upgrades and changes for the 2012 Corvette.
