As a member of the GM family, the 2008 Chevrolet Corvette has a long list of features that can be checked when ordering the car.
Cars.com documents the ‘Vette’s features as such: “A CD player with MP3 capability is standard, while the optional Bose system includes an in-dash six-CD changer and steering-wheel audio controls. XM Satellite Radio is standard on this Chevrolet; 2008 also brings OnStar. An audio input jack is standard on all stereos except those in cars equipped with the optional navigation system.” They also note, “A power-operated top is optional on convertibles.”
Both Motor Trend and Car and Driver made special mention of the enhanced exhaust with the order code NPP. This special two-stage exhaust will open a set of butterfly valves at about 2,850 rpm. The result reduces backpressure by about 80 percent, releasing another 4 hp and 6 pound-feet of torque, not to mention what Car and Driver calls "the raucous roar it deserves."
The 2008 Chevrolet Corvette also comes with cup holders.
The 2008 Chevrolet Corvette's features are limited only by the amounts in the buyer's bank account.
