Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition

Posted on 12 January 2012 by Grace

Chevrolet is celebrating Corvette’s 60th Anniversary in the best way possible, by releasing a powerful special edition Vette.

The Corvette 427 is a convertible with 427-cubic-inch engine under the hood. The special edition’s name pays homage to the 427 block that powered Vettes in the past.

This Corvette will pack a punch that will surely earn the respect of car enthusiasts. It’ll offer 505 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is the only available gearbox, and the driveline and rear axle are borrowed from the Z06, too.

Also this car is loaded with features like Magnetic Ride Control, a trunk-mounted battery, special wheels (19-inchers up front, 20s in the rear), to name a few.

This beauty is scheduled to hit dealerships early this summer. Visit Ron Tonkin Chevrolet to see their wide selections of Corvettes.

The Spark, Chevy enters the mini-car market.

Posted on 18 November 2011 by Grace

GM enters the mini-car market with the Chevy Spark. They unveiled four, 12 foot, cuties at the LA Auto Show, sporting a variety of candy colors from Salsa to Disco.

The Spark packs a 1.2 liter four-cylinder engine, delivers 85 horsepower and 82 ft-lbs of torque. But don’t be too quick to judge the power of the Spark the light weight gives the car better than expected get up and go, while delivering 40+ highway MPG and 30+ city MPG.

Chevy was not chintzy with the features on this little car. In fact the Spark is packed with technology like, a 7-inch touchscreen on the center console, standard air conditioning and power windows, and Bluetooth/Pandora connectivity.

The Spark will be priced below the Chevy Sonic though; official pricing has not been released. The spunky Spark will be a welcomed addition to the Chevy line-up when it is released this summer.
