GM reveals Corvette S-Limited for 100th anniversary
The Corvette S-Limited is essentially the same as a standard Corvette mechanically. A 430hp (321kW) V8 that produces 575Nm of torque at 4,600rpm provides power. Special aesthetic features include upholstery, wheels, grille and diffuser treatments, side vents and a rear trunk-lid spoiler. The unique staggered competition gray aluminum, split five-spoke wheel setup, 18 inches in front and 19 inches in back, should provide ample grip with the Z-rated 245/40 tires up front and 285/35 in back.
Inside, the two-tone leather interior is chosen to offset the exterior color, with the Arctic White cars getting a black and white linen interior, while the black cars get black and sienna leather.
Pricing for the limited-run car is set to start at 7,980,000 yen, though with the small production run and special-edition status, the car could end up selling for considerably more. On the other hand, a left-hand drive 430hp (321kW) American mega-sports car may not be the most practical means of transport available in Japan.
