2013 Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Corvette and the final year of the Corvette C6, two special editions were offered in 2013: the 427 Convertible Collector Edition and the 60th Anniversary Design Package. The 427 Convertible Collector Edition received the 505-horsepower 7.0-liter 427 cubic inch engine from the Z06, the first time the engine had been offered in a convertible, adding additional elements from the Z06 and the ZR1 to create the fastest Corvette Convertible ever offered. The 427 Convertible Collector Edition also includes a raised carbon fiber hood, carbon fiber Z06-style fenders, carbon fiber floor panels, a ZR1-style rear spoiler, an optional carbon fiber splitter and optional carbon fiber rocker panels. In addition, Magnetic Ride Control is standard as well as 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels with Michelin PS2 tires.
