You might not able to see the bow-tie badge when the 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible zooms pass you on the road. It is the fastest convertible ever with a 0 to 60 miles per hour acceleration achieved in just 3.8 seconds. Plus it has the old, big, and mean LS7 V8 under its hood. It can also confidently say that it has a better power-weight ration than the Porsche 911 Turbo S.
Before the revelation, the closes thing you can ever get to a Z06 convertible is to have the Grand Sport Convertible which on final analysis lacks the powerful 427 cu. in. of the Z06.
Now Chevrolet makes use of the C6 body, installs that powerful heart in the engine bay and a whole lot of go-fast components to make the 427. The setup consists of a 505 hp lS7 linked to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The Magnetic Selective Ride Control plus a battery mounted on the rear comes standard with the Z06 rear axle and driveline.
The 427 will roll on 19 and 20 inch cup rims hugged by Michelin PS2s. Z06 lovers will be able to spot the fenders and hood made from carbon fiber.
Top speed is expected to hit more than 190 miles per hour.
Corvette will also have its 60th Anniversary Package. You can purchase your Corvette this yaer and you will able to ask for a special finishing that comes with an exterior of Arctic White and Blue Diamond leather and suede inside. The special edition also gives you ZR1-like spoiler, a ton of logos and badging, and racing stripes.
You can also get this option if you are getting a 427 Convertible. A unit of which will be auctioned later this month for the benefit of the a charity foundation aiming to ease hunger in poverty stricken countries.
