Chevrolet has recently unveiled the all new 2012 Corvette Centennial Edition. Chevrolet has revised the car for improved on-track performance and on-road comfort.
The Centennial Edition Corvette is special from the wheels to the stitching. Starting this summer the Centennial edition will be available on all Corvette models as an option package featuring an exclusive Carbon Flash Metallic exterior color; Centennial Satin Black painted wheels with special center cap logo; red brake calipers and 100-year badges. Not to mention, a specialized ebony interior with suede accents and red stitching that reinforces the sleek, to the point of sinister, exterior look. The main transformations in Corvette’s interior include better-bolstered seats, a revised steering wheel, padded centre console and armrests and an upgraded audio system.

Customers opting for the hardcore 498bhp Z06 and range-topping 629bhp ZR1 models get the option of Pilot sport cup zero pressure tyres for an “eight per cent gain in lateral acceleration”, according to the firm.
Also available for the first time on the Z06 is the company’s performance traction management system as well as a carbonfibre bonnet and revised gearing in fifth and sixth for improved fuel economy.
Chief engineer Tadge Juechter said: “We constantly strive to make the Corvette a better car on the road and the track.
“For 2012, the Corvette lineup achieves its highest performance level ever, while at the same time being easier to drive and enjoy thanks to several changes and new features inside the car.”
