No Shortage of Safety
The Corvette comes with several safety features that are designed to keep you as safe as possible before, during, and after an accident. Antilock brakes, run-flat tires, high intensity discharge headlamps, and active handling are all designed to keep you out of harms way. In the case that an accident does happen the Corvette comes with frontal and side-impact air bags that will reduce and eliminate harm to passengers. After an accident the Corvette uses OnStar to connect with emergency officials, even if you are unable to respond, and point them to your exact GPS location.
The Corvette features great end-of-life recyclability as an impressive 85% of the vehicle is able to be recycled which reduces landifll deposits as well as conserves resources.
The manufacturing facility for the Corvette utilises a process that reuses, recycles, and converts waste from daily operations, into useful energy. Not only does the facility reuse its waste but 20% of the energy used to heat and cool the final assembly facility of the Corvette is supplied by landfill gas.
Corvette Grand Sport
The racing inspired Corvette Grand Sport comes with many design cues influenced from the Corvette's long racing history. With new decals, badging, and interior and exterior accents driver's will feel as if this is no ordinary Corvette, but when they step on the accelerator and go from 0-60 MPH in under 4 seconds they will know it isn't. The Corvette Grand Sport may take it's special design cues from racing, but it upholds that mentality with its lightning fast performance.
The Corvette Z06 features a lot of surprising features, but perhaps the most surpising aspect of it is that it is street legal. This aluminum-framed vehicle features carbon-fibre components, which paired with its 505 HP 7.0L V8 engine, reaches 0-60 MPH in 3.7 seconds. Those looking for the ultimate driving experience won't have to look far. Michelin PS Cup tires, and an available carbon-fibre domed hood and magnetic selective ride control with performance traction management ensure the highest level of performance, but you won't believe it until you actually get behind the wheel.
You tend to expect a lot when you hear the statement "best Corvette ever made." The ZR1 will back up that statement and then go beyond your expectations to show you a driving experience that was previously never thought to be possible. The handcrafted LS9 638-HP supercharged V8 with titanium connecting rods and intake valves take the ZR1 to speeds of up to 205 MPH and from 0-60 in an incredible 3.4 seconds. The ZR1 features unique interior accents like Blue Diamond leather wrapped interior with sueded microfibre accents, and exterior features such as Michelin Pilot sport Cup tirs for the most precise cornering and Brembo Carbon Ceramic brakes that weight 50% less than equivalent cast-iron units. A Carbon Fibre hood, Carbon Fibre elements, and rounded leaner fenders and body also help the ZR1 to cut through air resistance like it's nothing. When your most immediate competition is a Blue Angel Jet then you are probably doing something right.
