2012 Chevrolet Corvette GS Convertible
2012 Chevrolet Corvette GS Convertible
To celebrate its 100th birthday, Chevrolet created a racing inspired Centennial Edition appearance and suspension package for the entire line of 2012 Corvettes. Available on all models, it features Carbon Flash Metallic paint with Centennial Satin Black wheels and red brake calipers. Black was not available as an exterior color in 2012 in favor of the special Carbon Flash Metallic paint featured on the Centennial Edition.
For consignment a little Crystal Red Metallic Tintcoat Corvette. On top is an eggshell very light tan canvas convertible, and in front a custom horizontal stainless rod grille. Interestingly enough with its non hiding head lighting, and this new grille it very much resembles the anthropomorphic Lightning McQueen in the animated cartoon “Cars”. Am I right?! Huh?!
With that stainless horizontal bar grille leading the way Corvette manages to do some throwback to some of the earlier versions with shark gill venting on the front quarters, a subtle Corvette cove in the doors, and the raked back windshield. This windshield is trimmed in black, and it sets off the eggshell light tan canvas convertible top attaching behind this frame. All fiberglass is near perfect and is painted in a factory Crystal Red Metallic Tintcoat. The top folds neatly into the rear flip up dual bumped cowling which butts up to the trunk lid which sports a spoiler on the top of the rear vertical panel. This rear panel has more throwback with the round tail lighting and cross flag badge. Quad exhaust peeks out from the middle of a black rear roll pan which houses the backup lighting. 18 inch in front and 19 inch on back polished and chromed aluminum thin spoked wide rimmed wheels, show through to the massive drilled disc braking and red badged Corvette calipers.
We will put the top down for full views of this wonderful interior clad in red and light cashmere leather. This covers beautifully fashioned high-backed buckets with plenty of stitched overstuffed bolsters to hold the passengers in when taking on several g's around corners. Within the headrests are embroidered flag badges. A center console races to the dash starting out with a cashmere covered glove box lid then turning to black where molded panels house the shifter and eventually melting upwards into the temp controls and a large screen with other visual functionalities. This also supports Bluetooth and you can use your phone throughout his device. A heads-up display dash is in front of the driver, and another throwback is the fiberglass panel between the seats has a small storage area just like Vette of yore, and also dual shiny rollbars are directly behind the seats. Nice clean carpeting in tan covers the floors.
Under the hood is a 6.2 Liter 376ci V8 LS3 mill complete with a Procharger P1SC supercharger. Our consignor states this engine has an output of 654hp. It is fed by EFI and has a T56 6-speed manual transmission on back, with a 3.42 limited slip rear axle.
Can you say showroom? That is exactly what it looks like underneath, with nary even a hint of road dirt. Plenty of cast aluminum parts and the sport suspension consists of independent SLA double wishbone cast aluminum upper and lower control arms, a transverse mounted leaf spring and monotone shock absorbers. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners. Also noted is a Street Thunder Cat Back muffler system.
This 100th anniversary GM car can certainly celebrate in style with that Procharger supercharger, just press the pedal and hold on! All was working for the test drive which was very exhilarating. All functions were working as they should including the suspension, and brakes!
Plenty of WOW factor with this car including the snappy color, beautifully contrasting canvas top, sport wheels and high performing mill under the hood. A custom grille will leave you with a smile for this little Crystal Red Metallic Tintcoat Corvette. That's why they call it the great American Sports Car, and you can get right in and go!
