2012 Chevrolet Corvette

Engage the road.

From its standard 430-horsepower LS3 all-aluminum block V8 engine, 190-mph performance and its EPA estimated 26 MPG highway fuel efficiency, Corvette defines state-of-the-art technology, engineering and design among luxury sports cars year after year. And now with more options for personalization, the 2012 Corvette stands to reflect unparalleled distinction. Yours.

  • 12 Go to gm/bluetooth.com to find out which phones are compatible with the vehicle.
  • 13 Corvette is equipped with run-flat Goodyear or Michelin ZP tires that eliminate the need for a spare. The tire design enables safe function during and after loss of pressure for some distance at a moderate speed. The shorter the distance that you drive with loss of pressure, the better the chance that the tire can be repaired. As soon as possible, contact Roadside Assistance for the nearest authorized GM or run-flat tire servicing facility and have the tire inspected. See section 5 of your Owner's Manual. Corvette tires tend to wear faster and are more susceptible to damage from road hazards or curb impact than standard profile tires. This type of damage is not covered by the GM New Vehicle Limited Warranty. You may want to get different tires if you expect to drive in winter conditions. See your dealer for proper tire selection.
  • 14 Grand Sport only. Stripe portion of package will be dealer-installed.
  • 15 Requires CFZ Carbon Fiber Package and F55 Magnetic Selective Ride Control.
