This is the 2013 Corvette 427 convertible. It goes 0–60 in less time than it takes to read this sentence. Looks good, too.
Here’s an awesome magic trick you can try out should you find yourself behind the wheel of a 2013 Corvette 427 60th Anniversary Edition. As you merge onto the highway, downshift into first, pop the clutch, and floor it. In less than four seconds, you will be at 60 mph, the tach will redline, and—here’s the magic part—all the other cars on the road will suddenly appear to stop moving. To mark the 60th year of America’s most iconic sports car, Chevrolet has busted out the most powerful Corvette drop-top ever, along with a bit of nostalgia: 427 convertibles ruled the blacktop in the late ’60s and remain some of the most sought-after rides by collectors. The hand-built engine—with a 190 mph top speed—is paired with a six-speed manual transmission, special wheels and badging, a ZR1-style rear spoiler, and optional full-length racing stripes. And at $77,000 it’s still the least expensive sports car in its class—to say nothing of the fastest. Bring on the tickets!
