The carmaker is expected to hold various events in the US, but for this piece of news we’ll travel to Europe, where the Corvette will celebrate its 60th birthday at this Goodwood Festival of Speed, which is set to take place from June 28 to July 1at Goodwood House, near Chichester, West Sussex, UK.

The ‘Vette is now waiting to receive its seventh generation, with the six that have been released so far managing to convince 1.3 million customers.

“The Corvette is a true icon of the Chevrolet brand – it provides the performance DNA that runs through the whole Chevrolet model range. Styling influences such as its trademark dual cockpit, there since the original, can be found in all of our cars today, and it still delivers the same performance, the same jaw-dropping styling and the same wow factor as it always has – It’s the greatest ambassador possible for the Chevrolet brand,” said Chevrolet UK Managing Director, Mark Terry.
