Styling

Exteriors

Timeless styling and breathtaking performance are two expressions that perfectly describe the Corvette legacy and the 2018 model is no different. The 2018 model features the uninhibited use of carbon fiber, with the material being used to fabricate a number of components including the trim, spoiler, and front splitter. The side rocker panels and rear diffuser give the 2018 Corvette a raunchier appeal compared to its predecessors. The 2018 Corvette also features a Bi-Xenon HID headlamp that gives it a more aggressive appeal than the older models. All trims feature rear intake vents to cool the rear differential and transmission oil. If you are looking to buy repairable cars for sale and this speed demon with looks to die for certainly deserves some love.
