About Chevrolet Corvette

For over six decades the Chevrolet Corvette has attracted driving enthusiasts and automotive admirers alike with its power, performance and style, all at a price that, with some effort, can turn a dream into a reality. The 2017 Corvette coupe and convertible remain all those things and more. Reborn and reinvigorated three years ago for its seventh generation, the Corvette proudly waves the flag as America's premium sports car. That it can compete with Porsches and Aston Martins itself is impressive. More so is the price at which it does. For around $56,000, the Corvette is the rare performance car that's a value. Top-line Z06 performance models supercharge that manifesto with 650 horsepower, while the new Grand Sport highlights even sharper handling than the standard Stingray.

"This makes 17 or 18 Corvettes I have owned, I have owned all the old muscle cars (wish I still owned them),Old & new Camaro's, 396 Chevelle, 442 olds, Mustang Shelby Cobra Convertible , Trans Am's, etc., Cadillac CTS, By far this is the best most fun to drive car ever! It looks fantastic & draws a crowd of lookers every where I go. GM did a fantastic job on the 2014 Corvette Stingray convertible. I bought the triple black, & I love the heated & cooled leather seats with a Black car. If you get a chance buy one or at least test drive one."

Exotic Detail Omaha NE, great detailers

"super sport run flat tires, is like having the car on a rail. The magnetic shocks and suspension and the Interior is top notch, 3LZ has the leather wrapped dash, and the HUD display it top notch, the trim is not plastic but actual aluminium ,8 way power heated and cooled seats give you the comfort your looking for on that long drive. The cockpit feel has you really connected with the car for that perfect driving experience. cargo space is good for a sports car - golf clubs fit perfectly. Omaha Clear Bra and Exotic Detail in Omaha, are the BEST in the area. Bruno's Auto Works painted my splats to match the other carbon flash on the car"
