It is the time to celebrate Chevrolet. They are ought to roll their limited but special edition corvette to celebrate its diamondjubilee of production. I was perplexed to know the specifications of this car. It is no more than the conjugation of beauty and power. The 2013 Corvette 427 collector edition is one of the lighter weighted cars in the Corvette family. The powerful seven-liter LS7 V8 engine delivers 505 and 470 lb-ft torque. How could a car lover resist him from testing this machine at least for one time?
The 2013 corvette consists of five models including the 2013 collector edition packed with power and beauty. It includes both convertible and coupe models.
The 2013 Corvette 427 is a convertible model, which is structured in strong carbon fiber to dilute weight. This makes the 2013 Corvette 427 the best ever made Corvette. Though the tail number 427 is associated with a nostalgic Chevy, the number 427 cubic inch is obtained by converting the 7008 cubic centimeter displacement produced by this car’s powerful engine. The thought process of Chevrolet must be appreciated to choose a name like this.
It is interesting to know the advanced features of The 2013 Corvette 427. Almost all models are equipped with Satellite Radio, Mp3 and Compact Disc player with a supplementary audio input, intelligent climate controlling systems. Audio can be controlled from the steering wheel itself. We can see that most of the features of 2013 Corvette 427 are adapted from the Zo6 model.
The other features include night vision, keyless entry, push button start and a free half-year subscription of Onstar telematics. Though the performance is higher the base models of 2013 corvette does not possess all the luxuries that other same genre car offers. All base models could attain sixty miles within 4.5 seconds. When comparing with ZR1 and ZR6 who offers something bigger we can see a much noticeable difference.
ZR6 achieve this speed within hardly 4 seconds whereas ZR1 take only 3.1 seconds! The engine of the strong ZR1 machine delivers 638 hp. The Corvette 427 can reach 60 miles in 3.8 seconds.
There is something interesting linked with the gear system too. When all base models and sports are facilitated with automatic and manual gear options, the ZR1 and ZR2 are manual only cars. Though it will help the driver to squeeze the best result according to the road, automatic gear system in the 427 is an added advantage. The head up display is present in all the models of corvette 2013. The 2013 Corvette can reach up to acceleration of 200 miles per hour.
When considering the safety measures, it includes front and back airbags, ABS, state of the art balance and traction control system. The safety features installed in the 2013 Corvette are reliable and efficient.
The beauty packages include vinyl graphics and flared fenders. The aim is to provide an aggressive aesthetic appearance. The fuel efficiency is also decent enough itself for such a monster engine, as it offers 15 to 17 mpg in the city and 24 to 28 mpg on highways
