Aside from the Centennial Edition Corvette, some leaked intel sheds light on what we will see (and won’t see) for the 2012 model year Corvette.
First, there’s the new color — Carlisle Blue Metallic — which will be in place of the Black and Jetstream Blue Metallic Tintcoat paint offerings, which have been deleted for 2012. Also deleted will be the 6-disc in-dash CD changer, hardly a loss, but we will see an upgraded Bose 9-speaker sound system, complete with new subwoofers.
Mechanically, both the Z06 and ZR1 models will see some upgrades. Starting with the Z06, the LS7-powered track monster receives a Performance Traction Management system that was only offered in the ZR1 before now. For the ZR1, it will receive a High Performance Package with 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels, Michelin Cup tires and a close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox.
Mind you that none of this has yet to be made official, but for a full breakdown on what to expect from the 2012 ‘Vette, head over to Corvette Forum via the link below.
