Chevy says goodbye to the C6 in style with their fastest drop-top 'Vette yet.
Chevrolet is sending their C6 into retirement with a special edition claimed to be the fastest open-top Corvette ever. The 2013 Corvette 427 convertible features some great performance and terrific design lines meant to show the best Chevy can do with their C6. Running on a LS7 V8 engine, the 427 can put out 505hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. The engine is coupled with a six-speed manual transmission.
With plenty of aerodynamic styling cues and carbon fiber pieces, the 2013 'Vette can run from 0-60mph in 3.8 seconds and hit a top speed of over 190mph. It can run the quarter-mile in 11.8 seconds. Standard features included on the 427 are General Motors' Magnetic Selective Ride Control, 19-inch wheels in the front and 20-inch wheels in the back wrapped in Michelin PS2 rubbers. Optional black Cup or chrome ZR1 wheels are also available. The fun doesn't stop there with 'Vette news, as a new 60th Anniversary Package will also be made available by the Bow-Tie badge company.
The package includes Arctic White exterior paint and a Blue Diamond leather-wrapped interior. It also includes 60th Anniversary badges, a ZR1-inspired spoiler and racing stripes. The 2013 Chevrolet Corvette 427 Convertible and 2013 Corvette 60th Anniversary Package will debut at a Barrett Jackson event in Arizona on January 21st. Both will be available starting this summer.
