The last example of the C7 Corvette leaves the factory lines
That's it, it's really over: the seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette, the C7, is definitively leaving the brand's assembly lines and putting an end to the front-engine Corvettes. This 66-year-old recipe will be replaced by a Corvette with a rear mid-engine, the C8 Corvette. The latter thus adopts with this architecture supercar codes which are also its main targets.
This symbolic end for the mythical American sports car has obviously aroused immense interest among collectors who are envious to keep the last piece from a bygone era. As a result, in June, one of them paid no less than $2.7 million for the last C7 Corvette. But there was a problem, the car has not yet been officially built, until today.
For the occasion, the brand published an image of this famous C7 Corvette. This is a particularly well equipped model in the sporty Z06 version. The model has a glossy black paint finish and a black and red interior. Another feature that will definitely make it a collector's item is the seven-speed manual transmission.
Under the long front hood is a powerful 6.2L V8 engine producing 650 hp. It does 0 to 62 mph in 3.2 s and the top speed is 195 mph. At first sight abusive, the $2.7 million price will actually be used for charitable purposes. It is very likely that this model will be even more expensive if it enters the second-hand market.
