CORVETTE MAY GET ACTIVE AERO AND RIDE HEIGHTJune 27, 2019
MidEngineCorvetteForum.com has uncovered a new patent describing movable deflectors working in conjunction with adjustable ride height.
General Motors has been filing a few patent applications lately around active aero components. The patents do not specify any one car for them to be used on, but the graphic shows them on a C7 Corvette. This would lead us to believe that the first car to get them would be the C8.
The abstract for this latest tech outlines a system that includes sensors to monitor the position of the active aero components on the car, both front and rear, and their relation to the ground. The real interesting part is that this comprehensive active aero system won’t simply move vents and spoilers but also adjust the vehicle’s ride height, front and rear independently, to optimize performance.
1958 Corvette Convertible. Meticulously, frame off restored and featuring a 283/270hp engine with dual quad carbs and 4-spd. transmission. One of the prettiest color combinations ever offered; Snowcrest White w/Silver coves and Red interior.
Priced at: $119,580.58

What Mike likes about this car:
“Let’s say you want to complete the ultimate Corvette Performance Collection. Well this piece of the puzzle is probably missing. And it’s highly unlikely that you will ever unearth one. Well, here’s your chance. And it’s brand new. This CSR (Jake) is our first one ever.
It’s right up there in rarity with the ‘67 L88. And we all know how that is coveted.
What do I really like? Having something so rare as this on the showroom floor for customers to see.
Please come visit us and see for it for yourself!! Happy Throttling! Apex • Exit • Accelerate!!”
The CSR Competition Sport Package was built for the owner who attends driving schools and track events. The edition was available in both Z06 and Z51 coupe configurations and featured performance options like the differential cooler, NPP exhaust and heads-up display.
