Inhaltsangabe: Chevrolet's Corvette is the most iconic, and some would say only, sports car built in America. This lavishly illustrated work conducts readers through the Corvette?s fifty-plus years of continuous production, a rich and varied history unmatched in the automotive world. An exhaustive review of six generations of American high performance, from the first 6-cylinder ?Vette of 1953 through today's fire-breathing, world-beating C6, The Complete Book of Corvette offers an in-depth look at the prototypes and experimental models, the anniversary and pace cars, and the specialty packages for street and competition driving that have made the Corvette a living automotive legend for more than half a century. With extensive details, specs, and photographic coverage, this book is the ultimate resource on America?s sports car. Officially licensed with Chevrolet and including many never-before-published photographs from the car maker's archives.
The Complete Book of Corvette
Form truly followed function as each aesthetically pleasing crease and scoop played its part to make the 2014 Stingray the slickest, most slippery ?Vette yet. ?Every square inch of the 2014 Corvette?s exterior is designed to enhance high-performance driving,? claimed exterior design manager Kirk Bennion. ?The team delivered a great balance of low drag for efficiency and performance elements for improved stability and track capability?all in a sculpted design that excites in all the ways that a Corvette has for six decades. ?Upgrading the cockpit was a prime goal with the 2014 Stingray. Prototypes were disguised to keep prying public eyes at bay when the car was tested on the street. Every aspect of the 2014 Stingray was designed for aesthetic beauty and high-speed performance. A preproduction Stingray coupe became the 12th Corvette to pace the Indy 500 in May 2013. The finalized Stingray design was first sculpted into a full-size clay model. 300 GM designers from around the world submitted their vision of the 2014 Stingray.
What a long, strange trip it?s been. Nearly cancelled a few years after its birth, rumored near death or dilution more than one time since, Chevy?s fantastic, plastic two-seater is rolling on more confidently than ever, this after six distinct generations of development.
