Check out this video of Callaway’s Corvette Aerowagen, a 757 horsepower beast that has been customized with a new engine and a hatchback for more storage. At $130,000, it’s an American supercar that can hit 60 mph in 2.7 seconds!

  

ACB: Corvette’s 60th Birthday Party

Before everybody pretends to be Irish tomorrow, lets take some time out of the day and celebrate something truly American: the Chevrolet Corvette.

60 years ago, the Corvette debuted with lukewarm sales and was going to get cancelled shortly thereafter. However, a redesign and some power courtesy of the iconic Chevy small block turned the tides on the sales chart. 60 years on we are now celebrating an icon with the same formula: a big V8 with pushrods up front and a leaf spring suspension out back.

Here’s hoping the new Corvette will continue in its predecessors footsteps.

  

I want the red Corvette in “The Rum Diaries”

Check out the movie trailer above for “The Rum Diaries,” one of the new film releases for the fall, and you’ll see Johnny Depp driving an amazing red C1 Corvette with the beautiful Amber Heard in the passenger seat. What a combination – a red corvette and a stunning blonde!

This should be a must-see if you’re a fan of Johnny Depp movies. The guy can definitely act. Amber Heard is also a rising star despite the cancellation of her TV show. She has an incredible look and she look natural in the period film.

The film is loosely based on a story by Hunter S. Thompson, and that alone should make it one of the best new movies of the year. Thompson has a knack for off-the-wall stories, and Depp is able to capture Thompson’s alternate reality. It’s the kind of movie that begs to be seen on the big screen at places like the Leicester Square cinema.

But I still come back to the car. I want it!

  

Say Goodbye to the current Corvette!

From AutoNews:

Time is tickin’ on the current generation Corvette.

The C6 Corvette will be offered for the 2012 and 2013 model years, and that’s it. In fact, 2013 may be an abbreviated model year for the Corvette, according to a Chevrolet source.

C6 is General Motors’ designation for the current generation Corvette. The C6 has been on the market since the 2005 model year, and is long in the tooth.

While the source didn’t say, presumably a shortened model year would give the plant in Bowling Green, Ky., plenty of time to retool for the redesigned Corvette, coming for the 2014 model year. That car is referred to as the C7.

Interestingly, that means Corvette’s 60th anniversary will be marked with the current generation Vette, the 2013 model.

And if the past is any guide to the future — Corvette created special packages to mark previous anniversaries — I think we can expect a special edition 2013 Corvette to commemorate the event.

Here comes the 2012 Corvette!

From Auto News.com:

The introduction of high-performance tires and racing-style wheels for the Z06 and ZR1 models are the major changes to the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette, according to information posted at Corvette fan sites on the Internet.

Information is leaking out as Chevrolet is set to officially talk about the 2012 Corvette during the annual C5/C6 Bash fan event at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky., this weekend. Look for some official news on April 28.

Chevrolet has disclosed that there will be a Centennial Edition package for the 2012 Corvette, available on all trim levels of the car. That car will be available only with a black exterior. And it appears that is the only black on the Corvette color palate for 2012, according to ordering information posted by Montana Chevy dealer Ken Fitchner at www.corvetteforum.com.

Based on that information, it appears Chevrolet is making it easy for Corvette buyers to equip their Z06 and ZR1 Corvettes for use at track and club events.
