If you think the C6 is just another chintzy, rattling 'plastic fantastic', it's been a while since you took a good look at America's favorite sports car. From boulevard cruising to road course bruising, it's hard to find a better all-around performer than a new Corvette. And when you combine 436 horsepower with a slick 6-speed transaxle, huge tires, huge brakes and a rock solid chassis, you get world-class performance for about half the price of a stuffy European import. This one-owner, essentially brand new, 2012 Corvette coupe packs excellent track capability in a comfortable and luxurious car that can be driven every day. If you enjoy going fast and turning heads, but don't want the hassle of dealing with decades old technology, this modern Detroit marvel is just your style!
With only 87 miles on its digital odometer, this showroom fresh Corvette coupe is an as-new garage queen that's assembly line perfect in virtually every way. $850 of optional Crystal Red Metallic tintcoat, which is accented by custom black and tan pin stripes, shows just how far GM paint technology has come from the days of multi-colored 1970s Stingrays. And the car's lightweight body displays precise fit and excellent finish under ancillary hardware that functions well and seals great. Judging by that tintcoat's top-notch appearance, I'm sure the literal hours of road time this Vettes seen were all executed under the sunny skies of the previous owner's dry Texas climate; and it's very unlikely the glossy, wet-look hue has ever felt anything more aggressive than a soft detailing cloth. Visually, the sixth generation Corvette is one of the cleanest and most balanced shapes ever introduced. And when that refinement is combined with Chevrolet's top dog performance, and a brand new high quality build, it creates one seriously capable sports car that'll show with the finest classics and run with the fastest street cars!
Lift this Corvette's sculpted fiberglass hood and you'll find GM's world-class Generation IV LS3 V8 which utilizes a cast aluminum block, high flow aluminum heads, a high flow intake manifold, an aggressive camshaft and an upgraded electronic fuel injection system to turn 6.2 liters of combustion into an SAE certified 430 horsepower and 424 lb./ft. of torque! A virtually perfected version of tried and true overhead valve technology, this award-winning mill is a thrilling companion for any car guy who has a pulse; and is a constant reminder of exactly how far performance cars have advanced in just the last few years. Even the mighty C4 ZR1, with its 32 valve all-aluminum LT5 powerplant, only managed a peak of 405 horsepower! Naturally, the engine bay is tidy and clean from its “CORVETTE LS3” emblazoned fuel rail cover to its factory oil pan. And, unlike a traditional 427/435 car, the smooth small block fires up instantly, idles eagerly and offers a thrilling combination of sonorous engine growls and neck-snapping acceleration!
For the most part Corvettes have always been great track cars, and this slick 2012 coupe benefits from both years of engineering prowess and a few tricks learned by Chevrolet's own C5R Le Mans race team. The car's wide fiberglass fenders cover a fully adjustable, four wheel independent suspension that's fitted with quick ratio power steering, factory traction control and four wheel power disc brakes which wrap large calipers and drilled rotors in a mandatory anti-lock software system. At the center of the floor a Tremec 6-speed manual transaxle, which is hooked to a factory limited slip differential, makes quick work of the hot small block's big torque. At the sides of that stellar drivetrain, an optional $1195 dual-mode exhaust system, which provides a thrilling soundtrack, ups the car's power output to a stoplight slaying 436 horsepower and 428 lb./ft. of torque. And at the corners of that rowdy exhaust system, a sweet set of 18 inch chromed aluminum five-spokes twist super sticky 245/40ZR18 front and 285/35ZR18 rear Goodyear Eagle F1s around chrome Corvette cross-flag center caps. All this state-of-the-art equipment enables exceptional cornering capability and effortless 4.5 second 0-60 sprints. And since this pristine coupe has likely never been out in the rain, you can rest assured all its under car components are just as the factory left them.
It's obvious that, throughout the evolution of the C6, designers have paid close attention to the constant belly-aching about the car's plain interior. And they've addressed most of the complaints with attractive packages like this coupe's two-tone 3LT cockpit. The plush driving environment kicks off with $695 heated, 6-way power adjustable leather buckets which are aggressive enough for spirited driving, yet comfortable enough for cross-country touring. At the front of the car, a leather-wrapped and chrome trimmed steering wheel spins buttons for the cruise control and audio system around a textured C6 Corvette cross-flag logo and a tilt-telescoping steering column. Above that column, a conservative dash hangs a bright Corvette-branded instrument panel between GM's optional Head Up Display and a standard equipment driver information center. And to the right of that column, the car's center stack anchors premium stitching and a weave trim panel around dual-zone climate control and a touch screen navigation system that combines an AM/FM, MP3 compatible CD player with Bose premium speakers and Blue Tooth connectivity. At the sides of the car, two-tone door panels frame controls for the car's power windows, power door locks and outside memory mirrors. At the top of the car a self-dimming rearview mirror, which is complete with both a compass and GM's unmatched Onstar service, hangs below a removable targa top. At the back of the car, a surprisingly spacious cargo hold benefits from an optional luggage shade. And naturally, all the amenities and convenience features you've come to expect in a modern sports car are present and accounted for including front and side impact air bags, keyless entry with push button ignition, universal home remote and nine months of XM satellite radio service.
Documentation for this Crystal Red jewel, which consists of an original owner's manual, a DVD for the car's navigation system, and a small “Getting to know your 2012 Corvette” introductory brochure, is what you'd expect from any new Corvette.
With a stout V8, a world-class drivetrain and a full roster of desirable options, this Corvette delivers astounding performance and a surprising amount of luxury. And with its excellent build quality, awesome performance and killer good looks, this is the kind of car you buy, enjoy as often as possible and hang on to for a long time!
