One word comes to mind upon the mention of the Chevrolet Corvette is style. Before the European rides permeated the rhymes of our hyper ostentatious hip hop culture, the corvette was the quintessential sports car.

Any Corvette, including the previous versions have a particular edge in design that you will not just ignore. A mandatory option is to cop the drop top.  

The Chevrolet Corvette 2015 comes with a whole lot of advanced features. Both the 2015 Corvette Stingray Coupe and Convertible spot improvements meant to offer users a complete all-round sport car.
