Prices for the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette are up, and even though GM hasn’t released anything official yet, the numbers pointing to the new generation models are now in the possession of some Chevrolet dealers in North America.

This price increase ranges from around 500 USD to 1,250 USD, depending on the model, and apart from the various improvements that have been made, these new tags are also closely related to the weaker economy and the fact that some of the customers are now interested in the new and cheaper Chevy Camaro.

This is the thing with burnout contests – if you try to keep you wheels spinning for too long, that smoke coming from the tires can transform into fire coming out from the engine compartment.
