The final ‘Vette was not an ordinary autotragic base model, but rather a 60th Anniversary 427 Convertible that we had once-in-a-lifetime chance of driving last year — a thrill we will never forget. Equipped with the monstrous LS7 from the Z06 making a healthy 505 HP, the final C6 was painted in Arctic White, wears special wheels, commemorative badging, and a Blue Diamond leather-wrapped interior with suede-microfiber accents… not that it helps the interior of the C6, but everyone loves suede, right?
This particular model is the final of the 215,100 C6s ever built, and will be sent to the Heritage Collection in Warren, Michigan. Although the end of the C6 brings mixed feelings, we’re sure that the C7 will be nothing short of awesome.
Bowling Green has been undergoing preparation and retooling to assemble the 2014 Corvette C7 that’s expected to arrive in showrooms in the third quarter of 2013. Let’s hope that at least 215,101 C7s will be made.
