I order a 2012 Grand Sport Corvette and did a museum delivery. The museum Delivery is worth every penny and the VIP tour of the plant was great. If you are going to buy a new Corvette, do a museum delivery you will never regret it. My vette is great 436 HP and handles like a dream. It is a convertible, auto w/paddle shift, HP exaust and cross drilled rotors. The Grand Sport has the Z06 suspension.

Best Corvette Z06

Owning a 2002 Z06 and purchasing a 2008 Z06 I thought I had my power fix taken care of. After purchasing the 2012 With Magnetorheologic shocks and sport cup wheels with performance traction Management I have, once again, reached a new performance height. The Corvette Team have done it , delivering a package that is second to none. The stereo , seats and black headlight buckets are awesome.

What An Awesome Car !

by from Santa Maria, CA on March 30, 2013

I presently have seven cars, four of which are sports cars- a '52 MG-TD, '54 MG-TF, 2000 Jaguar XK8, and I recently purchased a 2012 Corvette 3LT. I previously had a '89 Vette. While I liked the styli...
I presently have seven cars, four of which are sports cars- a '52 MG-TD, '54 MG-TF, 2000 Jaguar XK8, and I recently purchased a 2012 Corvette 3LT. I previously had a '89 Vette. While I liked the styling at the time I didn't like the road noise or the stiff ride. Just for fun I took a test drive at a dealer and was impressed not only with the looks, fit and finish but the awesome acceleration and handling. The interior noise is reasonable until you step down on it and than the Corvette just roars. I got the selective magnetic ride option which gives a choice between tour and sport. My minor complaint is that the ride in tour is not as soft as I had hoped for. Overall a great sports car!

This is my 3rd vette so there is no doubt I think this is the best car overall on the road today. I have driven just about every sports car out there and would say with performance and price and practicality, the corvette is the way to go. The only negative I stand by on this vehicle is the fact that Chevy still needs to work on its interior and perfect convertible top operations. Mercedes, BMW, porsche, and Acura do win out on their precision craftsmanship.

The Corvette is all I expected and then some. I accidentally came across the Centennial edition and I am so glad that I did. It is the best of both worlds (Z06 and ZR1) plus the top comes off!!! Additionally, it is not very common so the carbon flash metallic color and the suede and leather interior clearly distinguish it from all other vettes hand down! Love this car!!

Corvette -- exceptional performance and value

This is my second Corvette. My 2007 Corvette had almost 55,000 miles on it, including almost 8000 miles on road race tracks. It was a base model with no performance options. Given that the new C7 is due out later this year, I thought that it might be time for a great deal on a used Corvette. I was prepared to purchase my first used car but then visited a dealership that made me an offer I couldn't refuse on a brand new Corvette Grand Sport Centennial Edition. In addition to the normal high performance Grand Sport options, it also includes magnetic ride control. The amount of performance and quality for the price is staggering. As with my prior Corvette, when you drive the car sedately, it acts like a sedan. When you press the accelerator and look for some performance, it is transformed into one of the best performing cars on the road. And, by the way, my prior Corvette got great gas mileage -- 21 MPG in daily driving and 27 to 28 MPG on the highway. Plus, I do not drive with a light foot. My prior Corvette was exceptionally reliable, never having any significant problem even though it was driven on road race tracks for almost 8000 miles. I expect the same from this model. I already appreciate the improved handling from the Z06 sized wheels and tires and the magnetic ride control. Also, the Z06 brakes are exceptional. I strongly recommend the Corvette for exceptional levels of performance, very high reliability, and superb value.

Most fun car to drive

by from Middletown, De on December 23, 2012

Love it! The only negative is a violent vibration coming from the inside, center of the dashboard when speed exceeds 73 mph. I need to take it back so they can find out what's causing it.

Although I've only had the car for 3 weeks, I have put almost 600 miles on it. Unfortunately 425 were in the rain driving it home from the dealership. As a daily driver car, the only complaint I have is it wasn't designed for folks with short legs. The car is a head turner. Many comments about it being 'sexy'. Can't wait to explore its performance and handling capabilities. I really like the 'heads-up' display and the dual-mode exhaust (which I keep open). On the interstate, it got an amazing 24mpg at 80mph.
