Chevrolet build 1,500,000th Corvette

Building 1,500,000 of any machine is a serious milestone, but when it’s an iconic sportscar it means even more. Yesterday General Motors announced the production of the 1,500,000th Chevrolet Corvette at its Bowling Green Assembly plant in the states.

The announcement of the sales landmark was an opportunity for some shameless promotion for the latest Corvette – the 2010 Grand Sport.

“The Corvette Grand Sport achieves a 0 – 100 time in less than four seconds and pulls 1.0g on the skid pad,” Chevrolet product marketing director Karen Rafferty said. “These numbers are unmatched by any of Corvette’s competitors.”

It’s nearly 60 years of Corvette production that has got them to the Grand Sport, Z06 and ZR-1, Rafferty remarked, “The 1.5 millionth Corvette is a great example of how Chevy is America’s Brand. For nearly 60 years we have built America’s Sports Car and this milestone is a solid proof point.”

It’s no secret GM are in financial turmoil and will be leveraging its most iconic products to help rebuild the company’s image in the wake of its massive bailout and bankruptcy. The new Grand Sport is an important halo model and is a representation of GM’s proud history and it’s current performance credentials.
