Last C6 Chevrolet Corvette Rolls off the Production Line
The sixth-generation Corvette went into production in 2005 and since then a total of 215,100 units have been produced. Yesterday, February 28, 2013 at 8:04 a.m., the last 2013 Corvette came off the line at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant. The last unit produced was an exclusive Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition outfitted with the 60th Anniversary design package that adds an Arctic White exterior combined with a Blue Diamond leather-wrapped interior.
This special edition is powered by a 7.0-liter LS7 aluminum-block V-8 engine that delivers a total of 505 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. It sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds and can hit a top speed of 190 mph.
This last unit will be displayed alongside other historic General Motors vehicles at the GM Heritage Center in Warren, Michigan.
Now that the sixth-generation Corvette is out of production, GM workers have begun remodeling the plant for the production of the all-new 2014 Stingray.
