how many pounds can a 2012 hardtop Corvette trunk carry

Asked by Jun 25, 2013 at 01:40 PM about the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette

Question type: General

We are taking  a short trip of about 300 miles.  We are going near a Winery and want to purchast some wine, which we like.  Each case weights approx. 38# and want to purchase several cases.  We would be able to hold 8 cases, but would the weight of this amount damage my car?

have the wine "drop shipped" to your location...make for a much less stressful drive and you can boogie down hwy 29 and stop at the napa/lake fresh calistoga water pipe stickin out of the wall to fill your gallon jugs...laden down with an uncomfortable load will not make this a pleasant journey but a "white knuckle drive"...UPS them to your location...be kind to yourself~

I'd say keep three (about the weight of a corpulent passenger) and ship the rest~ the wine maker has a preferred shipper that knows to handle the bottles gently, most assuredly~ Beautiful country the windey twisty hairpin curves of 29 thru the robert lewis stevenson forest (stop for a hike) down to where a simple pipe sticks out of the west side of the road about 300 yards from the Lake/Napa county border....some of the best water I've ever tasted and FREE...just have to pick a time when no one is there...some folks proceed to fill 20 five gallon jugs which will take all day.....some people's kids I tell ya~

I have a 2006 hardtop Corvette and its weight capacity (passengers and cargo) is 423 pounds. Eight cases of wine would weigh approximately 300 pounds. That would be too heavy with 2 passengers. It depends on how much the passengers weigh. Do the math and you'll know how much wine you can safely buy. Have fun!

I've owned Corvettes since 1965. Don't load it with rocks or kegs of nails. Wine? Load up. You don't have much room to start with. If your passenger is a female, you will not have much room to add wine. Check on shipping costs, remember you have fiberglass floor pans, and the rear deck is not as thick as where you plant your feet. Some suit cases can sneak up towards 50 pounds, so you can easily load from 125 to 200 pounds of luggage, depending on your length of trip. I moved from Iowa to Florida then to California in a 1965 Corvette. We loaded it up to the gills, even had a cat in heat. August across the southern states without air was a fun ride. Bottomed out some, but it made it just fine. Really, consider shipping unless it is two cases or maybe three.
