Vehicle Description

2013 Chevrolet Corvette 3LT Convertible

At the end of every production year, the Bowling Green Assembly Plant posts a list of "Options Penetration" showing how many of each type of Corvette, color and options were built so that new Corvette owners could try to figure out how rare their car may be. For 2013, GM offered a record seven different models of the Corvette; the Coupe, the Convertible, the Grand Sport Coupe, the Grand Sport Convertible, the Z06, the ZR1 and the 427 Convertible. The big dog as far as production for the 2013 Corvette was far and away the Grand Sport Coupe with 4,908 units built. This is a repeat performance for the GS Coupe which has been the number one in production since it's introduction in 2010. A distant second to the GS Coupe was the standard Coupe with 2,597 units built. Right on the heels of the Coupe was the 427 Convertible with 2,552 units built which knocked out the Grand Sport Convertible that held the 3rd place spot for the 2012 Model Year. Now, the GS Convert settles into 4th place with 1,736 units built. The last three spots were a bit anemic with 720 Convertibles built, 482 ZR1s built and 471 Z06s built. Many people believe that the one year run of the 427 Convertible affected the sales of the Z06 and the ZR1 since this was the only shot to get something close to a convertible version of either of those two super cars.
For consignment, a fully loaded Corvette in 3LT form and this sportscar from Chevrolet is lean and fast, with plenty of creature comforts to amuse you while you go fast. From its 1 owner history to the 460 actual miles, to the fact it's one of approximately 33 Corvettes built in the 2013 model year in Inferno Orange, (this includes all models and body styles), it's all fiberglass cowled and finned body, all form has a function, and that is why this is called America's sports car. No stones left unturned here ladies and gentlemen!

Exterior
This integrated bumper, sealed headlights, no audacious chrome, just pure performance oriented sculpted exterior is bathed in Inferno Orange Metallic. Fiberglass is near perfect, with just one scrape down low on the driver's side, just like it was carefully un-molded at the factory. All gaps are well minded, and with all the panels, it becomes a piece of racing sculpture with a performance heritage. On top is a pristine black canvas power convertible, with a glass rear window. It moves up and down almost as fast as the car does and allows for 3 season driving. 18 inch 5 spoke polished wheels in front and 19's in the rear, and we are ready to step inside and spin the tires. Bringing up the rear is a large flat angled inward panel, complete with the round Corvette taillights, and a quad grouping tailpipe setup centered at the bottom for the dual mode exhaust.

Interior
Carved utilizing smooth lines shaping foam and leather which form 2 high back buckets for driver and passenger. These Ebony buckets are in like new condition with only very minor wrinkling of the leather on the driver's outer bolsters. These seats are heated and have the iconic crossed flags embroidered into the headrests. Fronting these seats is a dash which grows from side to side out of a center console which houses a glovebox, and shift lever fabricated out of leather knobbed and booted. The console moves gracefully upward giving the climate control center and Bose AM/FM/CD/Bluetooth/Navigation system space to hang out. Under the curved instrument cluster, we see a backlit cascade of gauges perfectly fitted under an emulating shape to this cluster arch steering wheel. Plenty of power conveniences are noted throughout. Black carpet floods the floors and is very clean, as are the door panels also utilizing the curve for their design.

Drivetrain
Under the front flipping hood, is a 6.2-liter 8-cylinder EFI mill that looks like showroom condition. On back is a 6L80E 6-speed automatic that utilizes a paddle shifter on the steering wheel option if you desire to get a bit competitive. A 2.56 rear axle is present.

Undercarriage
With the odometer showing a mere 460 original miles, this underside is showroom. No rust, just a mixture of steel and aluminum, all shiny and bright. SLA independent suspension is all around, power disc brakes also in all 4 corners, and these are cross drilled and big. Also, active handling and traction control is attached, as well as a multi-mode performance exhaust. A big stainless steel exhaust snakes its way rearward from the mill.

Drive-Ability
I've had the pleasure to drive every Corvette that has come to the Classic Auto Mall, and they all have their own feel year to year of production. This one is easy in and out, seats grab you, and with the push of the button it lights right up. I like the paddles and make extensive use of them on the test track where it has neck snapping acceleration, rail-like handling, and is very stable in the curves which it cuts through like a sharp hot knife through butter. It also has a very smooth low RPM cruise. The sound system and all interior power functions worked just supremely.

Think of driving a piece of sculpture that is highly functional on the performance front. And it will come at a wonderfully reduced price as any car tends to do as it gracefully ages. Yes, there are a few bells and whistles that will come with a newer 'Vette, however this one is virtually new with the mere miles put on since its purchase. Great low production color, lots of tech options, and your dream car because who does not dream of owning a Corvette? Now is your chance, don't let it speed by.
