Used Chevy Corvette Charleston SC
The Chevrolet Corvette, now in its seventh generation, is the quintessential American sports car. Most car lovers in the country aspire to own a Corvette one day, but this is not just a toy for old men. The latest generations of Corvettes are track-focused machines that can compete with any high-performance model from Europe. Central to the Corvette driving experience is the small-block V8, which in recent supercharged iterations can make up to 650 hp. That makes the car capable of going from zero to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and achieving a top speed of more than 200 mph.
The first Corvette was designed as an open-top vehicle only, and likewise the latest Corvette convertibles are designed that way from the start. No extra strengthening beams need to be added to make up for the lack of a roof, so there’s no compromise to the performance for buyers who want to feel the wind in their hair and hear the roar of the V8.
Affordable supercar performance
In addition to its massive power, the Corvette’s trademark active handling system with magnetic dampers allows it to be competitive on the road and on the track with the much more expensive supercars of the world. Incompetition, it easily outruns cars like the McLaren 650S, Lamborghini Huracan and Porsche 911 GT3 — models that cost several times the price of a new Corvette. It’s no wonder that for decades the Vette has been known as the world’s most affordable supercar.
The modern Corvette has kept its lightweight advantage by using more aluminum and carbon fiber, as well as some space-age composites, in its construction. The cost of manufacturing it is kept down by sticking to the tried-and-true front engine, rear-wheel drive layout it’s always had, as opposed to mid-engine or all-wheel drive like some of its competitors.
