Famed for its enviable looks and powerful performance, Chevrolet's legendary Corvette is celebrating a unique milestone in the upcoming year - its 60th Anniversary.

The Corvette exemplifies a true sports car – simply cool and exciting, traits that have been underlined by its image in pop culture. However, undeniable style isn't all that the Corvette possesses – it is safe and more importantly, comfortable for everyday driving.

The fame of Corvette has long been established through its success in American culture and its technical refinement. Over the course of time, a wide variety of innovative features have contributed to its growth: Examples from the last decades include extended mobility tyres (also known as run-flat tyres), the head-up display, which projects important data on the windshield in plain view of the driver, as well as magnetic selective ride control which enables real-time damping.

Together with its constant technological advancements, the demand for Corvettes to appear alongside famous actors and actresses has also not died down.

This trend serves to illustrate America's 60 year old love affair with the iconic car.
