Launches the new Corvette 427 Convertible Collector's Edition

The Chevrolet Corvette, which has been famous for its enviable looks and powerful performance throughout its existence, will be celebrating its 60th year Anniversary next year. This milestone will be commemorated by launching a new collector's edition of the Corvette 427 that is specially built for this event.

"For almost 60 years, Corvette has offered state-of-the-art features, technologies and incredible performance," says Executive Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter, the man responsible for overseeing the design of the Corvette 427 Convertible Collector's Edition.

The fame of Corvette has long been established through its success in American culture and its technical refinement. Together with its constant technological advancements, the demand for Corvettes to appear alongside famous actors and actresses has also not died down. This trend serves to illustrate America's 60 year old love affair with the iconic car.
