Gen 6 – 2007 LS2 Corvette Convertible
The Chevrolet Corvette (C6) is the sixth generation of the Corvette sports car that was produced by Chevrolet Division of General Motors for the 2005 to 2013 model years..
This sixth generation Corvette is the first Corvette with exposed headlamps since the 1962 model. Production variants include the Z06, ZR1, Grand Sport, and 427 Convertible. Racing variants include the C6.R, an American Le Mans Series GT1 championship and 24 Hours of Le Mans GTE-Pro winner.
The Corvette C6 featured virtually all new bodywork with exposed headlamps, revised suspension geometry, a larger passenger compartment, a larger, more powerful 6.0 L V8 engine (364.1 cu in) and a higher level of refinement and creature comfort than its predecessor. Overall it is 5.1 inches (13 cm) shorter than the C5, but the wheelbase was increased by 1.2 inches (3 cm). It is also one inch (2.5 cm) narrower.
Also known as the Vortec, the new LS2 engine wrenched a power output of 400 hp (298 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 400 lb⋅ft (542 N⋅m) of torque at 4,400 rpm from its 362 cid (6.0L frame. It was similar to the high-performance LS6 but with improved torque throughout the rpm range.
|The LS2 engine’s given 0-60 time in the 2007 Corvette was under 4.2 seconds while its quarter mile time of 12.90 secs at 109.06 is jaw dropping for a regular production car. And its top speed of 190 mph made the Corvette ideal for use as a pace car for many auto races including those races at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
One interesting design facet of the 2007 Corvette is the fact that it had P245/45XR-18 tires on the front while carrying P285/35ZR-19 on the rear. This Vette was built to race.
