Classic Chevrolet Corvette gallery

A pictorial history of the Corvette tracing 60 years, from the start to the present with the newly released Mk7 Corvette Stingray.

One of the most famous classic American sportscars ever is the Chevrolet Corvette. Since the first 'Vette rolled out onto the streets in 1953 this iconic speedster has fuelled fantasies and become ingrained into the hearts and minds of motoring purists.

In song the Corvette was a favourite with the Beach Boys and sixties surf duo Jan and Dean as heard in their song 'Deadman's Curve', then there was Prince's chart-topping 'Little Red Corvette'. In movies Elvis oozed nonchalant-cool as he leaned out of a Corvette window in 'Clambake' and the astronauts in 'Apollo 13' cruised Cape Canaveral in a Corvette. The Corvette has become a cultural treasure from hit songs to the silver screen and onto the roads of the world.
