When you buy a Corvette, you buy a lot more than a car. You buy an image. When Chevrolet introduces something new- from disc brakes to a hidden headlight system- it usually debuts on Corvette. Corvette’s unusually low center of gravity is due partly to the fact that the frame rails run outside of the seating area. The front/rear weight distribution (47/53% with 350-CID engines) results in benefits in traction, braking and reduced steering effort.
The Turbo-Fire 350 V8 is coupled with a 4 speed transmission and convertible top.
