The Chevrolet Corvette is the sports car that has been manufactured by Chevrolet since 1953. It is built today exclusively at a General Motors assembly plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky, U.S.A.. It was the first all-American sports car built by an American car manufacturer. The National Corvette Museum is also located in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
For more than 50 years, Corvettes have combined very powerful engines, such as the 400hp LS2 or 505hp LS7, with relative affordability, especially when compared with more prestigious marques of similar performance. Older generations of the Corvette have been criticized for being crude and lacking in refinement by European sports car standards, and their on-limit handling is a divisive issue garnering both praise and reproach. Recent generations of the Corvette, however, are widely seen as being much improved in these areas.
