The real star of the early 1960s hit show “Route 66” was the Corvette. Main characters Tod and Buz cruised the open highway in search of adventure, somehow getting a new Corvette every year. Chevrolet was the series’ main sponsor and the partnership resulted in a starry image for the Corvette. While Corvette sales benefited from the exposure, improvements in performance options continued to make the Vette the American car of choice for sport driving enthusiasts of the era or for those trying to look the part. The most potent option, the 283 Fuelie, would put out 290 horsepower. Connected to a four-speed with Positraction, performance was the best in the business. On the outside there were few changes to make the 1960 model stand out from its predecessors or later models until the Corvette Sting Ray was released in 1963.

The 1960 Chevrolet Corvette is a sports car featured in Forza Motorsport 3 as part of the Motorsport Legends Car Pack and in every subsequent Forza title except Forza Horizon. It can be won from a Showcase event in the Xbox 360 release of Forza Horizon 2.

Synopsis

The 1960 Corvette is equipped with a 283 ci (4.6 L) small-block V8 engine operating with a compression ratio of 11.0 to 1. Outfitted with a high reving solid lifter camshaft and a mechanical fuel injection system, the closely geared 4-speed (non-overdrive) transmission complements the engines rev-happy nature. Handling is enhanced by a independent rear suspension, and ridgity increased with a body-on-frame construction as opposed to a unibody. As with all Corvette models, it sports a fiberglass body to keep weight down.

Performance

Section Stub You can help the Forza Wiki by adding to this section.

To further increase frame ridgidity and handling a roll cage would be advised as well as removal of the rear bumper to help keep weight down. Due the motors relative lack of low end torque it is advised to add a stage two transmission upgrade to allow a rear gear swap (4.55 gears work well).
