Chevy unveils 2008 Corvette

The new Corvette will provide owners with an "impeccable performance and great comfort", the general manager for Chevrolet has commented.

Ed Peper’s comments follow the updating of the new Corvette in a number of key areas.

Possessing a new 2L LS3 small-block V8 engine, the car offers 430bhp and will deliver a top speed of 190mph.

Available in two colours – jetstream blue metallic tintcoat and crystal red metallic tintcoat – the new Corvette also incorporates a new two-mode exhaust system and features improvements to its transmission and axle ratios, allowing for quicker gearshifts.

Other enhancements to the new Corvette include improvements to the feel of the steering system, while the car’s wheels come with a new split-spoke.

Mr Peper said: "The changes and enhancements to the 2008 Corvette reflect continual improvements that speak to Chevrolet’s unflagging commitment to building the best sports car."

Alluding to the 55 years Chevrolet had been in business, Mr Peper added that the Corvette "just keeps getting better and better".
