Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It was America’s sports car from the first, and in the half-century since, it’s only gotten better. This book gives Chevrolet’s Corvette the treatment it deserves, with brilliant, detailed photographs of noteworthy models from all six generations.

Full-color pictures, performance statistics, and historical summaries of each of Corvette’s six generations: this volume packs nearly 80 vehicles and over 250 color photos into an irresistible close-up look at an incomparable sports car. Here are the cars that seduced generation after generation, from the 1953 Corvette convertible and 1963 Corvette Grand Sport to the 1990 Corvette ZR-1 and 2006 Corvette Z06--a fitting celebration of the world’s longest continuously produced sports car.
