New Age American muscle doesn’t get any better than the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette. If you dream of roaring down the streets in a brand new sports car, consider these benefits of owning a Chevy Corvette:
The first thing you will notice when you’re behind the wheel of the 2012 Chevy Corvette is how quickly the car picks up when you step on the gas. The base model Corvette, which has a 6.2L V8 engine that is rated at 430 horsepower and 424 lb-ft of torque, goes to 60 mph from a standstill in only 4.5 seconds. If you really want to feel power, the Z06 Corvette has a 505 horsepower 7.0L V8.
Chevy carefully tunes each Corvette’s suspension for more control and precision during cornering. When you throw the Corvette around a hairpin turn, you will stay glued to the road thanks to both the Corvette’s suspension as well as its enormous rear tires.
With a large trunk that can store up to 22 cubic feet of cargo, you can easily take the Chevy Corvette around town or out for a road trip. Launch Control comes standard on the Corvette, which means the enormous amount of power under your hood will stay tame enough for a comfortable drive around town.
With all of that power, it’s good to know that you’re wrapped superior safety features. The base model of the Chevy Corvette comes standard with high performing anti-lock disc brakes. Chevrolet’s Active Handling stability control keeps your Corvette stable in a gentle way that doesn’t impact performance.
