Big, bold, loud and action-packed, driving a Corvette is never boring. And the sexy stylings of this particular Centennial Edition Grandsport will keep everyone coming back for a second look... or a second drive. This Chevrolet Centennial Special Edition honors Chevrolet's 100 years on the road with a special black-on-black color scheme and the Grandsport adds wider Goodyear F1 Supercar tires, a wider, more flared and chiseled body and a wider steel frame.
The 2012 Chevrolet Corvette is available in hatchback coupe and convertible roadster body styles. The base Corvette and Grand Sport (GS) are available in both body styles, and each is broken into 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, and 4LT sub-trims. This 3LT Grand Sport includes a head-up display, Bluetooth, a touchscreen navigation system, an iPod/USB audio interface and a nine-speaker Bose sound system, power telescoping steering wheel (manual tilt), driver memory functions and heated six-way power sport seats (manual recline) with power-adjustable bolsters and lumber. The Convertible 3LT also gets a power-folding soft top. It also comes with silver-painted alloy wheels, a limited-slip differential, automatic xenon headlights, fog lamps, a removable Targa-style roof panel, heated and (driver-side) auto-dimming mirrors, keyless ignition/entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, a six-way power driver seat (manual recline), a tilt-only steering wheel, leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, OnStar and a seven-speaker sound system with satellite radio, a CD player and an auxiliary audio jack. Convertible models feature a manual-folding soft top. The Grand Sport adds to each stiffer springs and stabilizer bars, different dampers, larger and cross-drilled brakes, special wheels and Grand Sport styling elements. When equipped with the standard manual transmission, it also features a dry-sump oil system and a differential cooler.
This 100th Anniversary edition celebrates the Chevy brand's 100th year. The special package comes exclusively in Carbon Flash Metallic, with satin-black graphics and unique Centennial Satin Black wheels and red brake calipers. The lightweight wheels come with a thin red outline around the perimeter of its surface
Both the base Vette and Grand Sport feature a 6.2-liter V8 that cranks out 430 hp and 424 pound-feet of torque. All Corvettes come standard with a six-speed manual transmission and launch control. Along with this strong performance, the Corvette actually gets pretty good fuel economy at 16 mpg city/26 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined.
Antilock disc brakes and side airbags are standard. Side curtain airbags are not available. The 2012 Chevrolet Corvette's special "Active Handling" stability control system has been tuned to engage in a soft, noninvasive way that doesn't panic you. The Corvette's stability control also includes a Competition mode that gives the expert driver more leeway for aggressive dynamics while still maintaining an effective safety net.
