The 2012 Corvette was revealed at the National Corvette Museum this past Friday. Hundreds of Corvette enthusiasts mobbed the three cars, great with anticipation to see them for the first time.
There was one each of the 2012 Grand Sport, Z06, and ZR1, and all were in the new (one year only) Carbon Flash Metallic. The traditional – and popular – color, Black, will return for 2013. We were told that telling the difference between the two Black colors is extremely difficult indoors. The contrast, though, is seen outdoors in the sunlight! In my opinion, Carbon Flash is slightly lighter and more lustrous than Black.
The presenters from General Motors were Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter, Product Manager Harlan Charles, Exterior Lead Designer Kirk Bennion, and Interior Lead Designer Chris Sass.
