For 2013, Chevy wants to celebrate the success of their Corvette by releasing a 427 Convertible Collector edition as a 60th anniversary package. The first car, and maybe the only one, will be auctioned off at Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale, so if you want one, you better get your auction ticket quickly before spaces are sold out. Chevy should release more later in the year, and likely will, but the first is going to be sold at auction, so expect it to go for a heft price.
What’s unique is there is no convertible Z06 or ZR1, so this new convertible featuring the 7 liter 427 from the Z06 will be a first, and long overdue. Rated at the standard 505 horsepower and 470 lb feet of torque, this Corvette is expected to be just as potent as the Z06.
No price has been announced yet, but expect it to cost a few thousand more than the Z06.
