The Corvette has long been regarded as America's only true sports car, since it went into production more than 50 years ago. The brainchild of Harley Earl, the original Corvette took the 1952 Motorama Show by storm, wowing the 4 million people who filed past. It was wide and low-slung, unlike anything to have emerged from Detroit before. The Corvette was clearly influenced by Jaguar's XK120, though there were plenty of Harley Earl touches in evidence. Inside, it was undoubtably a sports car, with its two bucket seats and central instrument panel; the GM Corvette was no luxury 'personal car' like the Ford Thunderbird, but a simple, basic sports car. But the Corvette was radical in that it was the first mass-produced car to have a GRP body - not that General Motors envisaged it as such. Then it was seen simply as an economic measure before full steel bodies followed in 1954. it survived and went on to become something truly remarkable. Within a couple of years, Harley Earl and his team had created a stunning sports car; American through and through, and guaranteed to lure buyers of Jaguars back to Chevy showrooms. The Chevrolet Corvette was able to match the best that Europe could offer, with racing successes at Le Mans, Sebring and tracks around the world. The Corvette Sting Ray is legendary. Every year has seen remarkable technical and stylistic developments, culminating in the fabulous ZR-1 of 1989, the seventh-generation C6 Corvettes and the Z06. Fascinating book full of auto history about the ultimate American sports car. Hours of enjoyment for fans of this iconic car. The photos here are something special, to show off this special car.
