Area 51

C7 Corvette

Is this a Classic?

Actually, we think all Corvettes are classics. This one just happens to be a 2018 model.

Finished in Long Beach Red Tinto (what a daft name, Raspberry Metallic would be more like it) with an Ebony leather interior, red painted calipers, chrome wheels and sports exhaust. The exhaust note can be selected from ‘Eco’ all the way to ‘Track’. Even in Track mode it is reasonably quiet until you hit the pedal, then it sounds like Apollo 13!

0-60 mph is some ridiculous quick time under 4 seconds with a top speed quoted at 206 mph or something equally ridiculous! The performance is truly amazing yet it is no problem to drive sedately. Get this – when cruising at 75 mph the V8 changes to a V4 imperceptibly! On a road trip in Northern Spain, 1200 blissful miles of traffic free driving, this ‘Vette returned 36 mpg!

Classic or not, it is very COOL!
