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
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
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!
