Chevrolet Corvette details:
When it comes to performance, the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette is one of the world's best bargains. A lack of refinement proves you get what you pay for, but since you get a whole lot of old-school American muscle, that should be more than enough for many. Chevrolet Corvette Convertible offers the following pros: Huge acceleration; glorious mechanical soundtrack; world-class handling and braking; big trunk capacity. Chevrolet Corvette Convertible drawbacks are: Not as agile or refined as some of its competitors; old-fashioned dashboard.
The 2012 Chevrolet Corvette is available in hatchback coupe and convertible roadster body styles. The base Chevrolet Corvette and Grand Sport (GS) are available in both body styles, and every is broken into 1LT, 2LT, 3LT and 4LT sub-trims. The higher-performance Z06 and ZR1 are coupe only, and are broken down into their own sub-trims.
The base Chevrolet Corvette 1LT comes traditional with silver-painted alloy wheels (18-inch front, 19-inch rear), a limited-slip differential, automatic xenon headlights, foglamps, a removable targa-style roof panel, heated and (driver-side) auto-dimming mirrors, keyless ignition/entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, a six-way performance driver bench (manual recline), a tilt-only steering wheel, leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Onstar and a seven-speaker audio system with radio, a CD player and an optional stereo slot. Convertible models option a manual-folding soft top.

The 3LT adds a performance telescoping helm (manual tilt), driver memory functions and heated six-way performance sport seatings (manual recline) with power-adjustable bolsters and lumbar. The Convertible 3LT also gets a power-folding soft top. The 4LT gets extended leather dashboard trim, faux-suede bench inserts and extra armrest padding.
The Grand Sport is also available in the above trims, but adds to every stiffer springs and stabilizer bars, various dampers, larger and cross-drilled brakes, special wheels and Grand Sport look-and-feel components. When equipped with the traditional manual transmission, it also features a dry-sump oil system and a differential cooler.

The Chevrolet Centennial Special Edition available on the 3LT or 4LT trims of both the base Vette and GS adds original black paint, black and red wheels, and the adaptive suspension.
The Z06 is available in 1LZ, 2LZ and 3LZ sub-trims. Every one gets a bigger V8 motor, essentially the same suspension and brake setup as the Grand Sport, axle and transmission coolers, original wheels, carbon-fiber front fenders and floor panels, and a head-up screen. In terms of convenience and comfort equipment, the Z06's sub-trims are pretty much identical to their "lt" counterparts except that the 3LZ gets the 4lt's extra leather dashboard bits. The Carbon Fiber suite adds most of the Zr1's carbon-fiber body pieces for reduced weight along with a Zr1-style spoiler. The Z06 Ultimate Performance suite adds carbon-ceramic brakes, lightweight black wheels (19 inches front and 20 inches rear), Michelin Pilot Sport Cup run-flat tires, an adaptive suspension, Performance Traction Management and a larger spoiler.

The ZR1 High Performance suite gets those items from the Z06 Performance suite not already included on the ZR1 as traditional.
