This glorious and iconic Corvette is the top specification 4LT model finished in gleaming factory optional Crystal Red Metallic Tintcoat, (Code 89). A beautifully preserved and pampered example having covered just 20,550 miles from new, the bodywork is arrow straight and the paintwork is simply stunning with just one tiny touched in scratch to an otherwise flawless finish. All trim sections and badges are as new and the optional second roof panel allows you to choose between colour coded or transparent with the unused piece neatly stored in the luggage area. The underside and wheel apertures are exceptionally clean and clearly representative of dry usage, garage storage.
A showroom fresh and very well specified interior is bristling with all the appurtenances of modern motoring such as head up display, keyless entry and start and navigation to name just a few. The Custom Leather-Wrapped Interior Package is standard only on the 4LT model and features beautiful and supremely comfortable two-tone Ebony and Cashmere upholstery as well as extensive leather wrapping to the dashboard and interior trim with contrast stitching. Absolutely all equipment operates seamlessly including the ice-cold air conditioning, heated electric seats and Navigation which comes complete with the US and European map discs.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
With exception of the Z06, the 6.2 litre LS3 V8 all-aluminium unit is the most powerful Corvette engine ever and puts out 430hp and 574Nm of torque in standard form. This Corvette is a true supercar, capable of 190mph and 0-60mph in around 4.3 seconds! An additional 6hp is gained with the factory optional dual-mode performance exhaust which reduces restriction and provides a more aggressive exhaust note through the use of butterfly valves on the two inner tailpipes. The engine bay itself is a spotless work of art and proudly displays the Corvette LS3 lettering on each rocker cover. The desirable short throw six-speed manual transmission features triple and double cone synchronisers and Computer Aided Gear Selection (CAGS), a device factory designed to only allow direct shift from 1st to 4th gear when certain conditions are met. This was to avoid the US gas guzzler tax by suppressing rapid acceleration, however a widely accepted CAGS bypass has been supplied by specialist Eurovettes and fitted.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Fitted as a factory upgrade, Competition Grey aluminium five split-spoke wheels are pristine with no kerb damage whatsoever and immaculate crossed flags centre caps. Matching Falken Azenis FK510 tyres of size 245/40 ZR18 front and 285/35 ZR19 rear were fitted brand new in 2019. The factory optional Magnetic Selective Ride Control offers Tour and Sport ride modes controlled via a centre console rotary switch and part of this option is larger crossed-drilled brake discs which along with the enormous Corvette branded calipers are easily seen through the attractive alloy spoke apertures.
A Certificate of Origin issued by the General Motors Corporation and Subsidiaries confirms this Corvette C6 4LT was registered new on the 25th February 2008 by main dealer, Walters Elkland Chevrolet, inc. of Pennsylvania, and was exported to the UK just three months later via Canada, with full importation and UK registration on the 27th May 2008. The car has enjoyed almost inconceivable fastidious ownership throughout and has covered a verified 20,550 miles from new, a significant portion of which was during tours of Italy with the first UK owner. The history file is quite remarkable with the full book pack containing absolutely all manuals, spare keys and point of sale literature as well as the service record containing 14 entries, the most recent in April 2021 with just 14 miles covered since. A huge folder contains many Corvette specialist invoices and there is a meticulously detailed maintenance log recording every element of the vehicle maintenance even down to exact specification and quantities of all fluids and filters.
