The Power- Calling back legends of the big block 427 convertibles of the mid 1960s, the 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible brings the supercar performance to the "top down" experience. That's 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds, a top speed of 190 mph on the test track and 505 horsepower with the wind in your hair. Remember to breathe. At the heart of 427 Convertible is the 7.0-liter (427 ci) LS7 aluminum-block V8, handcrafted by our own skilled engine craftsmen at the GM Performance Build Center where owners are invited to play a part with the optional Corvette Engine Build Experience. The engine incorporates lightweight titanium intake valves and connecting rods and contains a high-performance dry-sump oil system, which distributes pressurized oil to protect vital components under high-g driving conditions. It's track-ready power tucked within the classic Corvette convertible body for the first time in 60 years.
The 60th Anniversary Appearance Package- To mark this milestone in the Corvette story, the available Corvette 60th Anniversary appearance package will be available on all 2013 Corvette models. Showcased here on the 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible, this package boasts an Arctic White exterior and a Blue Diamond leather-wrapped interior with sueded-microfiber accents. The optional graphics package adds a classic track-ready appearance with full-length racing stripes in Pearl Silver Blue that run the length of the vehicle, including the interior. The convertible top even continues the appearance with stitched stripes. The package also includes gray-painted brake calipers, a ZR1 rear spoiler and 60th Anniversary badging on the wheel center caps, steering wheel and seat head restraints to give a finishing touch to this sleek and distinctive appearance.
