With the availability of the LS7 7.0L 427 Cubic Inch Small block V8 in the Corvette Convertible for 2013, contemporary Corvettes are now “mano a mano” (in hand-to-hand contact) with some serious new sports car competitors.
In their presentation Friday, April 27, at the National Corvette Museum, Harlan Charles and Tadge Juechter made the dramatic point that Corvette now has a better power-to-weight ratio than Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet, Audi R8 V10 Spyder, and Ferrari California Convertible.
With great power comes great responsibility. And now, great beauty! And, all for less money! What’s not to love?
