New Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition and 60th Anniversary Package Mark the End of the C6


The 2013 model year of the Corvette not only marks the 60th anniversary of Chevy's iconic sports car but also the final production year for the current C6 before it is replaced by an all-new model.
To celebrate the event, Chevrolet has created the new 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition and the 60th Anniversary Package that will be available on all 2013 Corvette models. Both will make their public debut at the Barrett Jackson collector car auction in Arizona on January 21, and go on sale early this summer.
Chevy says that the 427 Convertible Collector Edition, which blends elements from the Z06 and ZR1 models, is the "most capable" drop-top model in the Corvette’s history.
As the name suggests, the special edition convertible is powered by the Z06's 427 (7.0-liter) V8 engine rated at 505 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque (637 Nm), making it the most powerful series production Corvette Convertible ever. It's available exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission.
Aside from the powerful V8, the collector's edition gets the same driveline and rear axle system as the Corvette Z06, a rear-mounted battery and standard Magnetic Selective Ride Control, along with 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels wrapped in ZR1-style Michelin PS2 tires and several carbon-fiber components such as the hood, Z06-style fenders and floor panels.
The 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition tips the scales at 3,355 pounds (1,522 kg) delivering estimated 0-60mph (96km/h) performance of 3.8 seconds, quarter-mile time of 11.8 seconds, lateral acceleration of 1.04 g and a top speed of more than 190 mph (305km/h).
The new 60th Anniversary Package is available on all 2013MY Corvette models including the 427 Convertible. It features an Arctic White exterior with a Blue Diamond leather-wrapped interior with suede accents, while the Convertible models also get a blue top.
Other features include a ZR1-style rear spoiler, special badging inside and out, gray-painted brake calipers and the “60th” logo on the wheel center caps, steering wheel and seat headrests, plus optional graphics package with full-length racing stripes in Pearl Silver Blue.
