For 60 years, the Chevrolet Corvette, arguably one of the most recognized sports cars in the world, has been the American sports car, an icon of American horsepower and performance. The list of the car's accomplishments both on and off track is legendary. Chevrolet has never built an ordinary Corvette. Even the most mundane coupe draws a crowd everywhere it goes. The Corvette is one of the longest continually produced sports cars in existence. With a performance heritage stretching back six decades, the Corvette has been offered in numerous specialty packages for both street and competition use, many of which now rank among the world's most valuable collector cars. Award-winning author and photographer David Newhardt tells the full story of these legendary machines in 300-plus photos of 50 potent Corvettes, from the original 1953 roadsters right up to the high-performance, high-tech beasts Chevrolet builds today, like the supercharged ZR-1, one of the fastest cars ever built for use on public roads. With hundreds of photos and concise, entertaining profiles, this is a book for every Corvette enthusiast.
David Newhardt has been photographing vehicles for more than three decades, including a stint at Motor Trend, authoring 17 automotive books, and supplying images to scores of books and magazines. Currently Chief Photographer at Mecum Auctions, David continues to photograph and write about everything automotive.
