The 1963 Split-Window Coupe, which was produced for just one year, is an icon among Corvette enthusiasts. This highly sought after Corvette comes finished in striking silver with a vibrant red leather interior and was the recipient of the 1963 Car Life Award For Engineering Excellence. This 300 hp coupe comes complete with a 327 cubic inch power plant and was once considered to be one of the fastest cars on the road. The 1963 Split-Window Coupe, which was the first Corvette coupe ever made, showcases many different features including hidden headlamps, non-functional hood vents and an independent rear suspension.
The chest-pounding 700 hp 2011 Hero Edition ZR1 was enhanced by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering to exceed speeds of over 200 mph and is easily one of the fastest production Corvettes of all time. The 2011 Hero Edition ZR1 , the ultimate sports car for those who have the need for speed, sports beefed up tires that are ready to handle the speed this beast can put out. Custom designed to match the 63’, the 2011 Hero Edition ZR1 comes outfitted with many special features including custom front bucket seats, red brake calipers, side scoops and several carbon fiber components.
The Hero program is Kids Wish Network's fastest growing program and works to improve the lives of boys and girls coping with traumatic life-changing events. The Corvette Dream Giveaway has helped fund the expansion of the Hero program and each month a child from each participating hospital is chosen and recognized with a special “Hero” gift package.
