As we learned on the KOOL 108 Timeline this morning...this is the 60th anniversary of the Chevy Corvette. -- General Motors unveiled a revamped Corvette in Detroit on Sunday, the first new version of the iconic sports car in nine years. The 2014 model, so new that it shares only two parts with the current model, has dramatic new styling that picks up cues from the 1963 Sting Ray and newer Corvettes.
New version of GM's 6.2-Liter small-block V-8 with 450 horsepower takes the car from zero to 60 mph in under four seconds. That's at least a few tenths of a second faster than the current base model.
The price as not been released, but the car's chief engineer says people who can afford one now will be able to buy a new one. The current Corvette starts at $49,600.
