The Chevrolet Corvette is a sports car created by Chevrolet in 1953. It is manufactured today by an exclusive factory in Bowling Green (Kentucky) by General Motors. It was the first entirely American sports car manufactured by an American company. It is also today the car that has been in production for the longest time since 1953. It is also known for being “cheap horse” as it costs around 70 to 100 thousand dollars in its best version, which is a much lower value than competitors such as Ferrari, Lamborghini among others, and has a similar performance and in some cases superior. The National Corvette Museum is a museum dedicated to the car, also located in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Currently Chevrolet has launched yet another generation of the Chevrolet Corvette C7, with the ZR1 version being the most powerful of the brand’s entire sports division, featuring a 6.2-liter V8 SuperCharger engine that yields more than 750 horsepower and torque over 100kgfm.


Third generation (C3; 1968–1982)

The third generation (from 1968 to 1982) was initially inspired by the Mako Shark II concept. The new design featured retractable headlamps, two front grilles for air intake for the 427 V8 430 hp engine of the L88 versions and also of the 300 hp models. Another detail was the possibility of removing the rear window and the roof in the coupe version (which lasted until 1977). In 1969 the new engine, the 350 V8 (5,733 cm³) small-block, entered, reaching the maximum power of 300 hp. In 1971 Chevrolet inserted the big-block, a 454-inch (7,440 cm³) V8 that produced 425 hp and equipped the ZR2 version while the base model was equipped with the 270-hp V8 350. Like the L88, only 20 ZR2s were produced.

From 1972, with the oil crisis and new policies regarding gaseous emissions, a drop in power and engine capacity began. The big-block was in line until 1974 with a maximum power of 270hp. The 1975 V8 350 had just 165 hp.

Again, there were style and engine modifications in 1977. The Corvette showed even more angular lines, a new sloping rear and narrower front. It adopted the 180 hp L82 engine, based on the traditional V8 350. Another option was the L48, with the famous Rochester Quadrajet carburetor, which raised the power to 185 hp. The car reached 197 km / h and accelerated from 0 to 96 km / h in 7.8 seconds, good marks for those difficult times.
