Three words that are likely to send your car-loving heart into a pitter-patter are Chevy Corvette Stingray.

On June 30, 1953, the first C1 Corvette left the factory in Flint, Michigan.

In 1953, the carmaker built 300 Corvettes, but only 183 were sold, likely because of the car's inferior 150

The newest C8 Corvette (also known as the Stingray) comes in three trim levels: 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT.

 It has a 6.2-liter, direct-injected V8. This mid-engine sports vehicle generates 490 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque

features rear-wheel drive and a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission with automated and manual settings.

U.S. News reports that the starting costs for 2021 Corvette trims are as follows: $60,995 for the 1LT, $68,295 for the 2LT

Although the 1LT costs $12,000 less than the 3LT on average, there are also notable variations

The option eventually boils down to the 2LT or 3LT trim, unless your main objective is to purchase a new Corvette

The Corvette's 3LT trim includes a number of goodies that the lesser 2LT trim does not, according to the Chevrolet website

When you choose the Jet Black inside, one of the most noticeable features is the contrasting stitching

 Custom yellow stitching is another option, although it can be more expensive and call for further purchases.

The 3LT trim comes included with several interior enhancements whereas the 2LT trim does not.
