2013 Corvette 427 Convertible

It’s hard to believe Mark Hamill – ya know, Luke Skywalker – and the Corvette are both 60-years old! Dang. I’m not sure what Mark’s friends and family did for his B-day (Yoda ice cream cake?), but Chevrolet is using the Force with a special edition 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible. Speed will not be a concern, with the 427-cubic-inch LS7 V8 generating 505 horsepower, making it capable of doing 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds with a top speed of over 190 mph. The anniversary edition gets the same rear axle as the Z06, along with magnetic ride control, which I’m pretty sure allows the car to hover like Luke’s land speeder did, but don’t quote me on that. GM says the Vette will also feature carbon fiber components, including a raised hood, fenders and floor panels.
