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.

Synopsis:

A photographic celebration of America's sports car, from the 1953 Corvette convertible and 1963 Corvette Grand Sport to the 1990 Corvette ZR-1 and 2006 Corvette Z06.

Synopsis:

For 60 years, the Chevrolet Corvette, arguably one of the most recognized sports cars in the world, has been the American sports car, an icon of American horsepower and performance. The list of the car's accomplishments both on and off track is legendary. Chevrolet has never built an ordinary Corvette. Even the most mundane coupe draws a crowd everywhere it goes. The Corvette is one of the longest continually produced sports cars in existence. With a performance heritage stretching back six decades, the Corvette has been offered in numerous specialty packages for both street and competition use, many of which now rank among the world's most valuable collector cars. Award-winning author and photographer David Newhardt tells the full story of these legendary machines in 300-plus photos of 50 potent Corvettes, from the original 1953 roadsters right up to the high-performance, high-tech beasts Chevrolet builds today, like the supercharged ZR-1, one of the fastest cars ever built for use on public roads. With hundreds of photos and concise, entertaining profiles, this is a book for every Corvette enthusiast.
