Chevrolet hails Corvette's influence

This year marks the 60th birthday of Chevrolet Corvette and the carmaker has been quick to remind motorists that the firm is still going strong.

The US manufacturer said that it shares its birthday with Stevie Wonder, Jay Leno, Richard Branson and Dan Akroyd and like them it still "looks pretty good" for its age.

Mark Terry managing director of Chevrolet UK, said the influence that the iconic sports car has had on the firm as a whole should not be underestimated.

"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," he explained.

The boss described the Corvette as the "greatest ambassador" possible for the Chevrolet brand, claiming its "DNA" runs through the entire range of models it currently produces.
