This year Corvette turns 60. Chevy does have an elaborate plan to celebrate the bugger at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed, but before that here’s a small birthday party the held back in America in which the 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible – made to mark the 60th anniversary of the car – blows out 60 candles around a corner. It could have been a more dramatic powersliding affair, but hey. Watch it after the jump.

The Chevrolet Corvette 427 Convertible blends elements of the Z06 and ZR1 models to create the fastest and most-capable convertible in Corvette’s history. Its heart is the 427-cubic-inch (7.0L) LS7 engine from the Corvette Z06. Rated at 505 horsepower (377 kW) and 470 lb.-ft. of torque (637 Nm), it is the most powerful engine ever installed in a production Corvette convertible – and, like the Z06, the 427 Convertible is only available with a six-speed manual transmission.
