There’s a heavy helping of “’bout time” baked into the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette 427, but as far as birthday cakes go, it’s plenty sweet.

Built to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the legendary sports car, the 427 is the last iteration of the 6th generation of the ‘Vette that will be introduced before an all-new model arrives next year.

With a 505 hp V8 under the hood and a soft top overhead, the 427 is both the most powerful and fastest Corvette convertible ever made. It’s powered by the same dry-sump 7.0-liter engine found in the Z06 coupe, more or less fulfilling a longtime wish of Corvette fans to have the biggest of the small blocks available in a drop-top body style.
