2012 Chevrolet Corvette Styling

9.0
Styling

With three different body types and a total of five variants, the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette offers a strong sports car proposition to a wide range of buyers.

Whether you choose the convertible or the base model (which is really a targa-type convertible coupe), the same basic styling is found inside and outside. Strong, flared fenders, a low-slung, sporty stance, and long hood dominate the iconic Corvette profile.

While the exterior of the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette cuts as iconic an image as ever, the interior's style feels a bit dated.

Inside, simple surfaces and muted colors contrast with the much bolder exterior, with function ahead of form in almost every area. Opting for the leather interior is a must-have upgrade, massively improving the look and feel of the cabin.

The Z06 model offers wider fender flares, a front spoiler, optional vinyl graphics, and larger wheels. The Grand Sport borrows many of these styling traits, but with the standard Corvette's engine and transmission.

At the top of the range sits the ZR1, which is also the most aggressively styled, with a see-through panel on the hood, larger air intakes, and even wider flared fenders.
