2008 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
2008 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
In 1951 a group of Harley Earl's "Special Projects" crew began work on a GM sports car. Bob McLean designed a general layout for the car which was originally code named, "Opel." William Durant, the founder of GM, said a wallpaper pattern he saw in a Paris hotel in 1928 inspired the bow tie logo. Supposedly, he ripped off a small piece of it and brought it back to Detroit. Myron Scott, at the time Chevrolet's Chief photographer, is credited with coming up with the Corvette name, drawing from the small, fast warships of the "Corvette" class.
Fast forward to 2008 and this LS3 6.2 Liter engine putting out 430hp, paddle shifters, and the full capability to cruise low and steady, or go hot at a moment's notice. This coupe from Bowling Green presents in very good condition with 69,371 miles. This Atomic Orange Corvette and will arrive with 2 removable tops, 1 glass and the other body matching, the latter stored in the rear stowage area.
Atomic Orange drapes the fiberglass, and 5 spoke forged wheels in chrome finish are seen on all 4 corners. Plenty of conveniences on the exterior including Xenon headlamps, heated and self-dimming side mirrors, fog lamps and daytime running lights. An extreme raked front windshield is wrapped in black and is in perfect condition. Overall paint is very good and shows minimal chips or scratches.
The 4LT interior is adorned in black leather with Light Linen paneled inserts…power buckets are beckoning you to get in, get grabbed, push the button, and go…fast! The center console offers all the creature comforts you could want, as in dual climate control, AM/FM/CD, anti-skid mode button, power windows, and power mirrors, with the rear-view mirror sporting an inset compass. The instrument cluster glows white and is all analog and fronted by a leather covered adjustable steering wheel that offers fingertip controls, and paddle shifters. A stitched padded two tone black and Light Linen vinyl dash top undulates and stretches from door to door and is pristine. Door panels are very simple 2 tone, but effective in the design department, and a push button door opening actuator makes getting in and out a breeze.
An LS3 mill fits snugly under the hood, and has a Magnetic Ride package upgrade installed. The automatic 6-speed transmission is bolted on the back. This combination can put out an impressive 436hp with the optional dual mode exhaust.
This car has seen little if any foul weather, always garaged, and the undercarriage proves it. All clean even down to the exhaust system, ground effects, and floor pan panels. No runs, no drips, no errors on this cream puff that happens to be iced with some Jalapeno flavor under the bonnet, and painted with an atomic color!
A well taken care of favorite toy of the consigner, you have the opportunity to pick up at a very fair price. Considering the mileage, and condition, you will not be disappointed …unless you call too late and it has been taken! Go ahead, give yourself the ability to go fast.
