The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette - Your Dream Sports Car
By Alston Bruce
The Chevrolet Corvette is available as a coupe or a convertible. If you are a sports car enthusiast, then the Corvette is your dream come true. It has carved a niche for itself in this segment with its state-of-the-art technology and defining freedom. It has a standard 430 HP LS-3 aluminum block V8, which can effortlessly do 190mph under test conditions. If you like open air driving, there is a removable roof panel that can be stowed in a matter of seconds.
With a 6.2 liter V8 engine and a power-to-weight ratio that is incomparable to any of its peers, the Chevrolet Corvette performs like a seasoned professional, doing 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds flat. It gets an impressive 26 MPG on the highway and provides much better fuel economy than other 6-cylinder sports cars in the segment.
Would you like to make your Corvette a style statement that reflects your individuality? It can be done easily with a whole range of dealer-installed genuine Corvette accessories. They can extend the functionality of your favorite Chevy while enhancing its appearance to suit your style. From stainless steel pedal covers to a two-tone shift knob, a transparent roof panel, and a great choice of body graphic designs, you can make the Corvette look just as you imagined. The choices are endless.
The amazing Magnetic Selective Ride Control is available on select models to modulate suspension capability for twisty roads. Driving in the city and on freeways can be a wonderful experience with this unique feature. There are two settings for the cockpit, Tour and Sport. This option also includes larger, cross-drilled brake rotors.
Other features include leather seating, five-spoke silver painted wheels, steering wheel audio controls and OnStar safety facilities.
Two new apps make buying and maintaining your Chevrolet Corvette very convenient. The MyChevrolet app can help you locate the nearest dealer, schedule routine maintenance and contact roadside assistance as quickly as possible without any hassle. With the Find My Car app feature powered by Google Maps you can mark parking spots and set parking meter alarms.
