When the Chevrolet Corvette came on the American sports car scene in 1953 at the New York Auto Show, it was the first vehicle of its kind for General Motors. No one expected the automaker known for its sedans to come up with such a sleek, sporty, and high-performance car. Although the original Corvette was a concept car meant for GM’s Auto Show display, once Chevy’s chief engineer saw it, he knew this car would be a success. The Corvette was available to the public just six months after the car show.
In January of 2012, the 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition was unveiled. This special edition was created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Corvette as well as the last model of the 6th generation (C6). For those not lucky enough to get their hands on the collector edition, there will be a 60th Anniversary Package available on all of the 2013 Corvettes which include special anniversary badges, a ZR1-style rear spoiler, an Arctic White exterior, and a Blue Diamond leather-wrapped interior.
