Steve Garrett's View

In 2006, the most advanced production Corvette to date broke cover in the form of the C6 Z06. This wasn’t merely a base car with bolt-ons and badges, it had a unique all-aluminum frame, and it was powered by a barely civilized race engine. The new Z06 was offered only as a fixed-roof coupe, which made it rigid for fast lap times, but a little confining when enjoying the car’s precise handling on twisty back roads. But for 2013—the last year of C6 production and the Corvette’s 60th anniversary—Chevrolet installed the Z06’s howling 427 cu.in. LS7 engine in a Corvette convertible and offered two flavors: the 427 Convertible Collector Edition or the 427 Convertible with the 60th Anniversary Package.  Steve Garrett is the host of CorvetteTodayPodcast and He is the President of the Corvette Club of Kansas City, Missouri; Steve is a Media Contributor and former Moderator on the #1 Corvette website in the world, Corvetteforum.

Preview: 2013 Chevrolet Corvette 427 Convertible, 1 of 1,000 60th Anniversary Editions, A Very Low Production Sports car with ONLY 1,593 Miles, 427 7.0 Liter V8 Engine, this special convertible borrowed from the Z06 and ZR1 parts bins to make a car that a sports car enthusiast could appreciate. 



Exterior: Arctic White with standard issue 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels, wrapped in ZR1-style Michelin PS2 tires. There were also carbon fiber body parts that helped the convertible weigh in at 3,355 pounds, giving it a supercar power-to weight ratio.  The options include Carbon Fiber Package, 60th Anniversary Design Package, 60th Anniversary Stripe Package and 1 SC Package.



Interior: The Diamond Blue interior compliments the Arctic white interior. It is incredibly preserved. you’re greeted with a driver-focused cockpit. The attention to detail is apparent, offering both comfort and functionality.



Mechanical: Under the hood, the dry-sump, lightweight, naturally aspirated LS7 pumped out 505 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Best of all, this one is paired with a six-speed manual transmission, mounted to the differential in the rear of the car. This car is Arctic White and has the desirable Diamond Blue Interior. For additional rearward weight bias—contributing to the car’s ability to pull 1.04 g on the skid pad—the battery was located out back, too. To help keep the chassis planted, Magnetic Selective Ride Control was. Acceleration was brisk to say the least, especially compared to a standard C6 convertible: 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds and a quarter-mile dash in 11.8 seconds, plus a top speed of more than 190 mph.
